Occupy Wall Street: STOP Police Brutality Against Peaceful Protestors

Stand with Occupy Wall Street
Not a single banker has gone to jail for crimes that led to the financial meltdown. But now over 1,000 protesters have been arrested in the inspiring Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City. Tell Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Kelly: Respect the Occupy Wall Street protesters' constitutional right to peaceful assembly.

MassEquality Statement In Support of Occupy Boston

 BOSTON, October 6, 2011—The LGBT community is disproportionately represented among those who are victims of the nation’s ongoing economic crisis. We are the un- and underemployed. We are the un- and underinsured. We are the homeless and under-housed. And we are disproportionately impacted by government-sanctioned discrimination and denial of resources and protections.
If any group understands the plight of the 99% given voice by Occupy Boston, it’s the Commonwealth’s LGBT 6.5%

The 19-day-old Occupy Wall Street movement continues to gain momentum with the Left, as Democratic politicians, progressive groups and unions are joining the cause.  Members of the Service Employees International Union, the Communications Workers' union, the New York AFL-CIO and the United Federation of Teachers joined today's big march on Wall Street.

 "We're down with these protesters. We support the notion that rich folk are not paying their fair share," said Transport Workers Union President John Samuelsen. "Our bus operators are not going to be pressed into service to arrest protesters anywhere."
