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!
The continuing demonstrations, protests, and rallies that began with Sunday’s tremendous March on Wall St. South have ignited a resistance against the Banks and Corporations and the political parties that serve them. While the Democratic National Convention concludes, demonstrators will be in the streets of the second largest banking capital in the U.S. demanding economic justice for the 99% and building resistance to the economic crisis, the banks, the wars and all the attacks on working people.
Protests, demonstrations and other activities continue day and night. Actions targeting Duke Energy, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, as well as demonstrations demanding freedom for the Cuban Five and all political prisoners have already taken place. There are more actions planned and we will be in the streets of Charlotte for the duration of the DNC.
Planning and supporting these actions has generated a mountain of bills that we need your help to pay. Maintaining the Convergence Space, providing transportation, housing, medical equipment, sound and stage equipment, interpretation and translation, printing costs have all added up.

On Sun., Sept. 2, more than 2,500 people from throughout the South and across the U.S. filled the streets of Charlotte 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 convened here.
The March on Wall Street South has drawn significant media attention. Organizers estimate some 4,500 news reports have been filed, such as this CNBC interview from the floor of the DNC, as well as international coverage such as Mexico’s La Jornada, and France’s Le Monde.
Since Sunday’s march, the MOWSS coalition has continued to bring the voices of those most impacted by economic crises, war, cut-backs, deportations, and foreclosures to the Democrats & the world. The Coalition is supporting actions and events being developed by other groups, such as the Undocubus and Occupy Charlotte.
The expenses are piling up and we need your help to cover them. There are printing costs, sound and staging equipment, transportation, and much more. Help us continue in our work — make a much-needed contribution to the March on Wall Street South today!
