On Tuesday, May 30, after 8 months, threats and preparation for legal action, over two dozen attempted contacts and applications, and over 1,500 emails, the City of Charlotte finally granted a march route for Sunday, September 2 to the Coalition to March on Wall Street South. This is huge victory! It’s OUR victory!
Now we need your help to make this march something the banks and politicians will remember!
Lobbyists, the 1%, the Big Banks and PACS will be spending BILLIONS to push their agenda on the Democratic National Convention.
On September 2 thousands of people will march together to raise a people’s agenda at the DNC, in front of Bank of America, at the doors of Wells Fargo.
FOR: jobs, healthcare, housing, education, workers rights, collective bargaining, women & LGBT rights, & environmental justice
AGAINST: raids and deportations, wars, mass incarceration, foreclosures & eviction, and environmental destruction
With less than 100 days to go, your donation is urgently needed to ensure our ability to organize a broad and successful week of action that raises a people’s agenda directly to the banks and the Democratic Party.
No one is getting a salary to do this work. We don’t have any major foundations or non-profits bank-rolling this effort. Your donation will go directly to support the many costs associated with organizing a demonstration of this scale, including:
- court costs and other legal costs
- making this the most accessible convention demonstration by providing translation, interpretation and the needed equipment, accommodations for families, single parents, the elderly, and people with disabilities
- puppets, signs, banners, and other artistic expressions
- outreach materials, staging, sound equipment and other costs
We need at least $10,000 to cover costs.
Our movements have always been supported by all of us coming together, digging deep, and giving what we can.
March on Wall Street South on Sunday, September 2 (RSVP on Facebook!)
See you in the streets!
