The brave occupiers of Wall Street need your loving support and assistance today, as they rise up and demand a government that is responsive to the 99% of us, not the 1% that can afford lobbyists.
We're joining with MoveOn and labor and community groups in New York for a massive march down to the Occupy Wall Street encampment. And for those who can't make it to New York, we're holding a huge online "Virtual March on Wall Street" in solidarity with the courageous protesters in New York.
We in the American Dream movement respect and celebrate Occupy Wall Street as an independent movement; we love their spirit, courage, and nonviolence. Like so many Americans, we want to do what we can to help them succeed.
The occupiers have asked for the rest of us (who make up America's "99%") to stand and act with them in solidarity. Today, we answer that call.
Take a few minutes to share your story or your message of support for Occupy Wall Street, and we'll bring your stories and messages straight to the protestors.
Right here, right now. This is when we stand up to those who have brought us to financial ruin and proudly align ourselves with those whose democratic innovations are breathing life into our finest ideals.
No more listening to the titans on Wall Street. They were wrong when they told us less regulation would bring more jobs. They were wrong when they told us their banks were too big to fail. There is only one thing that is too big to fail today: the dreams of this new generation, finding its voice in Liberty Park.
Help us support those occupying Wall Street and spread the word about these first critical steps in the creation of a movement that can restore American democracy, and renew the American Dream.
Add your voice, stand with those occupying Wall Street.
Thank you for all you do to make our country better.
–Van, Natalie, Billy, Jim, Ian, Somer, and the rest of the Rebuild the Dream team
