Join us: flash mob for #OWS West on Friday (If you want to dance, rehearsal on Wed in Oakland)
Occupy Wall Street West is coming up on Friday. Hope you join us for the One People flash mob!
We'll be performing TWICE at NOON and 5PM (right before the march) - rain or shine.
See all details below. It will be a new opportunity to share a positive narrative that prioritizes our communities, homes, environment, and livelihood over Wall Street banks and corporations.
Now is the Time to come back together and express our readiness for change.

WHY THIS MASS OCCUPY ACTION?
* Corporations are NOT people, Money is NOT speech. January 20 is the eve of the anniversary of the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling for corporate personhood.
* To expose how Wall St. operates in our midst attacking our communities, homes, education, environment, democracy, livelihood, and well being.
* To broaden, deepen, mobilize, and assert the people power of the occupy-99% movement and allies.
* To contribute to ongoing community fights for economic justice against banks and corporations.
* To build a broad-based strategic mass movement of the 99% in SF, the Bay Area, California, and the region.
Thanks to all of our Partners
This action is coming together with the committed and passionate work of an incredible team, inspired by OWS. So much gratitude for everyone involved!
