Occupy Wall Street: One Year Later
Come listen to Occupy activists talk about their personal experiences with the Occupy Movement and the significance of organizing with Occupy in a small Rustbelt city in Upstate NY. They will share stories about the early days of Occupy Wall Street, what the movement has accomplished, foreclosure resistance, debt resistance, student organizing, immigrant justice, economic justice and the most recent upsurge of Occupy Wall Street with Occupy Sandy Relief efforts underway in New York City and New Jersey. This will be followed by a
