May 12: Bring Wisconsin to New York - Protest on Wall Street

Enough is Enough.

On Thursday May 12, 2011 we’ll be bringing some of that spirit of Wisconsin to Wall Street when thousands of people, from all walks of life, converge in a unique and inspiring action in the heart of the financial world — Wall Street.

Join us — because it's time to make the Big Banks and Millionaires pay!

The Big Banks crashed our economy, destroying jobs, foreclosing on millions of homes and wrecking cities and states budgets across the country. After trillions in taxpayer funded bailouts, Wall Street is making billions in profits and giving away record bonuses to CEOs. But our communities are still hurting. Here in New York City, tens of thousands have lost their homes and their jobs. Now, Billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg is proposing devastating budget cuts as the only solution to the economic crisis that Wall Street caused. Enough is Enough.

Starting at 4:00 PM, orientations will begin in public assembly sites throughout Lower Manhattan. Each one will have a different theme: housing, jobs, education, children/youth, peace, human services, and more. These will be followed by a march into the Financial District where we will stage the city’s largest teach-in and educate Wall Street and all New Yorkers on what it will take to rebuild our economy. We will close by discussing our next steps to insure that Mayor Bloomberg makes a commitment to a strong and fair economy for all.
