99 Pickets, OWS Arts & Labor, the Labor Outreach Committee, and Immigrant Worker Justice are all joining forces on the OWS Anniversary to highlight worker and immigrant struggles within the 99%. Just look for the #99PKTS banner to join us!
7am: Gather at Zuccotti Park as part of the 99% contingent and help build the People’s Wall, a blockade of the NY Stock Exchange.
8:30am: Labor “Swirl” — after the first wave, regroup at 2 Broadway (near Battery Park Station on the 4,5) for a mobile protest of anti-worker employers and businesses in the Financial District.
1pm: 99 Pickets Blitz — meet at 26 Federal Plaza (just off Foley Square) for a brief teach-in on labor and immigrant issues and then a tour of bad employers.
Our goal in all of these actions is to keep participants safe and reduce the chance of arrest.
