Don’t leave us with a mountain of debt
The Coalition to March on Wall St. South spent close to a year preparing for the resistance at Democratic National Convention. Challenging the local, state and federal authorities, MOWSS was able to obtain permits for the march and rally. We provided a Convergence Space for activists and organizers from around the country. This was accomplished by an all-volunteer staff of dedicated and determined organizers without a single dollar in Big Non-Profit or corporate funding. The successful actions carried out by the Coalition is powered by the energy of the 90 grass-roots and community activists who worked non-stop.
The work carried out by MOWSS showed what is possible. Please contribute now so that we can pay the bills. Please spread the word that we need HELP!
Appeal for food and other donations from the activists who came from across the county to protest during the Democratic National Convention. Currently 50-100 people are camping out at Marshall Park located at 800 East Third Street in Charlotte, NC.
This is a message from Thomas Bolaños, one of the activist at Marshall Park:
- best time to drop off donations is between 10-11am and 6-8pm in the kitchen area
- the most urgently needed items are: tarps, feminine hygiene products, food (especially fruits and veggies, bread), prepared foods, eating utensils, water, tents and tarps
- also need an off site food prep location(s)
- to arrange a donation or for more info, call Thomas at 706-280-0916
Please help support the occupation by dropping off these or any other items at the park, and circulate this appeal among your networks. Thanks!
Braving extreme heat, more than 2,500 people from throughout the South and across the U.S. filled the streets of Charlotte on Sun., Sept. 2 for the March on Wall Street South. The demonstration confronted the banks and corporations headquartered in Charlotte that are wreaking havoc on communities throughout the country, and raised a people’s agenda for jobs and justice as the Democratic National Convention convenes here.
Participants came from cities throughout North Carolina, including Winston-Salem, Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill, Rocky Mount, Greenville, Asheville, Fayetteville, Greensboro, and Wilmington. Many traveled hours from cities such as Baltimore, MD; Atlanta, GA; Greenville, MS; Washington, DC; Tampa, FL; Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, PA and New York, NY. A bus of more than 40 people, many of whom being foreclosed on by Bank of America and who are unemployed, spent 15 hours traveling from Detroit, MI.

The Coalition to March on Wall Street South stands in solidarity with Occupy Charlotte and the occupation of Marshall Park and supports Occupy Charlotte’s statement, which follows:
“Occupy Charlotte, NC, is calling for support of our peaceful Occupation of Marshall Park in the Wall Street of the South. During the Democratic National Convention our voices will be heard. Hundreds from across the country are already here. Thousands are on their way. Come and join us! This is the hour! This is the moment!
Any repression of this Occupation would be a black eye on the City of Charlotte and the Democratic National Convention at a national and international level. This would be a greater embarrassment to the City and the DNC than an inconvenience to us. The whole world is watching.
On Saturday, Sunday and Monday, FestivalLiberación, the March on Wall Street South, and the Southern Workers Assembly will be live streamed at the following links:
