After a successful May Day, 99Solidarity.comis teaming up with Occupy Wall Street activists and over 100 environmental, labor and health groups, in a call for a Just and Fair Society .
We have mobilized over 1,000 Occupy Wall Street activists from 15 cities Coast to Coast to convene in Chicago for four days of rallies and marches. We will protest against militarism and for a better budget priorities. http://99solidarity.net/chicago/
Serve human needs not Corporate Greed
Healthcare, Food, Housing, Education, not Wars
We have raised donations to cover all buses, part of the food, some housing, and some outreach materials totaling over $300,000. We need to raise additional amount of $16,500 to cover the cost of our media, communication, signs, nonviolent action gears. And hopefully to contribute to bail fund in case of our activists get arrested by excessive security
forces by City of Chicago, State and Federal Government in preparation for NATO summit.
The schedule for the weekend will be as follows:
May 18 The People's G8 Rally & March
May 19 99% Solidarity Meetup
May 20-21 Anti-NATO Rally & March
The mission of 99% Solidarity is to build a nonviolent movement that is inclusive and transformative, engaging the 99% in dialogue and actions that result in systematic changes to restore democracy.
Donations are no longer being accepted. Thank you for your support!
