Live May Day Coverage
Occupy Wall Street is back today with world wide demonstrations.
Several months of planning by the Occupy movement culminate on Tuesday with massive protests against economic inequality and corporate greed, nationwide and especially here in New York City. Occupiers have called for a general strike aimed at unifying the 99 percenters and disrupting the status quo by shutting down commerce for a day. “Be it no work, no school, no shopping, no banking,” the group say on the website May Day 2012, “the general strike is both a show of force and a cry for a remedy to the human rights crimes perpetuated by a weighted, biased, outdated system.” The group concludes, “We call on everyone to join us: No work! No school! No shopping! Take the streets!”
