The March on Wall Street South will assemble at Frazier Park in Charlotte, NC on Sunday, September 2.
An opening rally will begin at 11am, and the march will step off at 1pm.
Below is a map of the route the march will take and the main targets — Bank of America’s world headquarters, Wells Fargo’s eastern headquarters, the Time Warner Cable Arena, and the Bank of America Stadium — that the march will pass within sight and sound of.
Additionally, there will be two stops along the route for a peoples’ tribunal and speak out against these banks and corporations.
We’ll stop in front of the international headquarters of Bank of America and hear from people who have been directly impacted by home foreclosures, student debt, and BofA’s bankrolling of the private prison system, war, and environmental destruction.
Then, we’ll stop in front of the headquarters of Duke Energy. We’ll hear from folks impacted by Duke’s funding of dirty energy, and how Duke funds the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the right-wing bill mill.
We are working to make this demonstration completely accessible for people with disabilities and families, and to provide interpretation and sign language. If you’re interested in helping with any of these arrangements, please email us today at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information will be posted in the coming days and weeks about bus drop-off locations, parking, and other important logistical information. Please stay tuned and check back often for updates!
Buses, vans, and carpools are being organized in cities across the U.S. to bring folks to the March on Wall Street South!
