Nov. 2 Solidarity With Oakland


OWS Labor Outreach Committee Calls National Day of Action
The Labor Outreach Committee of Occupy Wall Street is calling for a national day of action on November 2nd in solidarity with Occupy Oakland and in defense of the Occupy movement nationally. We urge students, labor, the unemployed and all members of the 99% to take action on that day to send a message that our movement will not be silenced.

Oakland Calls – We Answer
All out in the Streets in Solidarity with Occupy Oakland, Wednesday, November 2nd

Statement of Solidarity With Occupy Oakland and the Occupy Movement Everywhere
The 99% are the incarcerated and the formerly-incarcerated, the victims of racism and the police, the unemployed and the evicted. We ALL stand to win when these injustices are uprooted. The Campaign to End the New Jim Crow is in solidarity with the Occupy movement everywhere and joins the resistance to the 1% who aim to destroy our lives.

We need you to join The Labor Outreach Committee of Occupy Wall Street
We are members of over 30 trade unions and labor groups who have come together in support of the goals of Occupy Wall Street.


Occupy Wall Street Struggles to Make ‘the 99%’ Look Like Everybody
Minority leaders have begun to rally for wider participation of people of color, and groups like “Occupy the Hood,” started by a man in South Jamaica, Queens, have begun to boost their presence both online — Occupy the Hood’s Facebook page now counts more than 8,800 supporters — and on the street. A “People of Color Working Group” has been meeting regularly at Zuccotti Park.

Who is the 99 Percent?
Clarence Thomas, executive board member of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union in San Francisco and a former Black Panther, stressed the need for the 99 percent to come together. He pointed out that one of the strengths of the Panther movement was its ability to develop coalitions with white allies, who were referred to at the time as “white radicals of the mother country.” He said he thinks this can happen in the Occupy Movement.

Photo Essay: Existing and Resisting for Palestine at Wall Street
The pro Palestinian organisation “Existence is Resistance” held a silk screening event at the Occupy Wall Street Encampment. Anyone who brought their own T shirt or anything else that could be silk screened were able to get it imprinted with the words “Un-Occupy All Foreign Lands”. There was a large turnout for the event as can be seen in these photos.
