Occupy Wall Street: One Year Later - Want to get caught up on the movement? Take a look at this video, highlighting last week’s actions as well as the many things we’re working on.
The anniversary of the Occupy Wall St is coming up and in preparation the NYPD has installed concrete blocks around the Zuccotti park. These props, among many others, are being produced as part of planned Sept 17th actions.
Want to come to the #S17 action but need a ride? Here you’ll find a list of bus rides and carpools whose drivers are generous enough to offer rides to fellow activists like yourself!
If you are driving to the action and have seats available in your car, then please help a fellow occupier out by adding your route to this map.
On Sep. 17, 2011 Occupy Wall Street started a revolution. One year later, join us for three days of education, training, and protest in New York City. http://s17nyc.org.
In all of these instances, most people think the problem is that these are the acts of a “few bad apples.” But taken together, one has to ask: Should an orchard producing so many bad apples be allowed to continue operating?
Another question is raised by the attitude of some activists in the Occupy Wall Street struggle who believe that the police are part of the “99 percent” that the movement is speaking for. For example, when the arrests on the Brooklyn Bridge were taking place, some marchers who hadn’t been trapped appealed to police with chants of “Join us, you’re one of us.”

The past 17th of September, the world experienced almost unknowingly the first taste of the new global protest movement of our time. Initially this was the date marked as the beginning of the Occupy Wall St. movement (now a nationwide phenomenon), however it also served to launch an international campaign of protests in front of local banks and stock exchanges dubbed as ‘Anti-Banks Day’. For the first time, the rising global civil society movement, based on democratic assemblies and structured around an ever-growing network of activists, tested its capacity to rally people worldwide and not only in a national framework. They created task-forces for media strategies, both online and offline, set up independent live-streams and coordinated globally for spreading information. Consequently, the 17th was like an excuse to prepare for the main course on October 15th, which will be the consolidation of this structure, and will set the standard for its future success or failure.
