September 15, 2012 at 5:44 pm 1 comment

Below is a list of activities happening on September 15th, Sept 16th, and Sept 17th, to celebrate the one year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street. PeaceSmiths, Inc. applauds the efforts of Occupy Wall Street!

Occupy Wall Street: We are The 99%

If you go to any occupy activities, it would be wonderful to bring a sign that said PEACE or END The WARS!

On September 22, 2011, the New York City General Assembly of Occupy Wall Street released a “One Demand” document (it included over a dozen demands). Included in it were the following lines:

On September 21st, 2011, America had military bases in around one hundred and thirty out of one hundred and sixty-five countries.

Ending American imperialism is our one demand.

On September 21st, 2011, America was at war with the world.

Ending war is our one demand…


Here are notes and calendar items from a press release from Occupy Wall Street:

September 15, 16, and 17 Anniversary Plans Set
Pushback against 1% greed, outcry for economic justice!


For the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street (OWS), September 15, 16 and 17, under the banner All Roads Lead to Wall Street three days of education, celebration and resistance to economic injustice are planned — with convergences and assemblies, concerts, and some of OWS’s famous direct action planned for 7 AM on September 17 (also known as S17) at the New York Stock Exchange. See full schedule below.

There’s an array of events signaling lots of energy as OWS begins year two. All offer story ideas and possible availabilities with activists. Sunday’s concert and Monday’s civil disobedience will be especially vibrant and visual with good turnout expected. For more details and last minute changes: s17nyc.org/schedule
