Photo by Flickr user a c o r n used under a Creative Commons license"][/caption] Mayor Michael Bloomberg is trying to shut down Occupy Wall Street, and we've got to stop him. We need to show Bloomberg that there's a national groundswell of support for Occupy Wall Street's right of assembly, guaranteed under the First Amendment of the US Constitution. There's a few different relatively easy things you can do to help out, and I urge you to do all of them if you live in the New York area.
- Wherever you live in the country, can you sign this petition? It will be delivered TONIGHT, first to Zuccotti Park and then to City Hall. A massive stack of signatures will show Occupy Wall Street and Bloomberg that the nation stands with the 99%, not the 1%.
- Tell everyone you know in the New York area that they should head to Zuccotti Park at 6:00 AM to prevent Bloomberg from evicting the protesters. If enough people literally stand with the protesters, Bloomberg will back down.
- Call 311 (if you live in New York City) or 212-NEW-YORK (if you live elsewhere in the US) and demand that Bloomberg back down from interfering with the occupiers' brave stand on behalf of the 99% of us.
