TOTW: Occupy 10 years later

Shock-u-py and Awe-cu-py

Around 10 years ago the first Occupy protest to grab large public attention began on September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, New York City. By October, Occupy had setup camp in over 951 cities across 82 different countries, and over 600 spots in the USA. By the end of 2011 and not far into 2012 most of the Occupy spaces had been cleared by the authorities. This week, we’re taking a look back and into the future of Occupy ideas.

January 11th: NYC Anarchist Assembly

We are witnessing a period of incredible social upheaval around the world. The US is not exempt from the political tension and the potential for conflict and substantial change seems more real than ever. In NYC, we also have an extremely tense political situation, with the expansion of the jail system, the ever spreading gentrification, and the largest and most brutal police forces in the country.

With this in mind we are calling for a recurring NYC anarchist assembly to build, strategize and create a formidable anarchist movement in the city that can grapple with the political problems in NY and internationally.
