Occupy Buffalo [Oct 1 - Oct 8]

"We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal." 
  • On September 17th, men and women of all races, backgrounds, political and religious beliefs, began to organize in nonviolent protest. These men and women represent the 99% with the goal of ending the greed and corruption of the wealthiest 1% of America.

TOGETHER is a hub for all of the events springing up across the country in solidarity with Occupy Wall St  

  • Occupy Wall Street is a leaderless resistance movement which began as a call to action from Adbusters, a Canadian-based anti-consumerist organization.

  • The original projections for the protest were to be between 20,000–90,000 participants. However, when only a little over a thousand protestors showed up the first day, it was labeled a bust. 

  • In the days to follow, more and more people have joined the protestors as they spend day and night in Liberty Square. 

“The beauty of this new formula, and what makes this novel tactic exciting, is its pragmatic simplicity: we talk to each other in various physical gatherings and virtual people’s assemblies, we zero in on what our one demand will be, a demand that awakens the imagination and, if achieved, would propel us toward the radical democracy of the future, and then we go out and seize a square of singular symbolic significance and put our asses on the line to make it happen.” - as stated by Occupy Wall Street

"We will only grow stronger in our solidarity
and we will be heard, not just in New York, 

but in echoes across this nation."

"In every facet of this movement, we are only beginning."
