Tomorrow is "May Day" or International Workers Day, a traditionally left wing labor holiday across the globe. The Occupy movement has seemed to organize itself to make a demonstration across the globe tomorrow, including in New York. All you WSO Monkeys that work in NY - be careful tomorrow! It could get dicey.
They plan marches from Union Square to Lower Manhattan and a “pop-up occupation” of Bryant Park on Sixth Avenue, across the street from’s Corp.’s 55-story tower. Banks have pooled resources and cooperated to gather intelligence after learning of plans to picket 99 institutions and companies, followed by what organizers have described as an 8 p.m. “radical after-party” in an undetermined Financial District location.
Will this affect any of you monkeys working tomorrow? Do you think the police are prepared for a violent situation?
They are asking people to not shop, go to school or work, and other "creative forms of resistance disrupting the status quo." To me, it seems like the status quo is a terrible U.S. economy which is not going to get better if people stop purchasing goods and walk off their jobs. Frankly I am surprised that this has not died out, and I expect tomorrow to very low-key and I doubt it will garner the huge news attention that they are hoping for.
What do you think?
