MASS ACTION ALERT - HIT THE STREETS with FUREE on THURSDAY!

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom.”-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

It's hard to believe that it's only been 2 months since Occupy Wall Street took off, influencing similar actions across the country. These actions shifted the debate around inequality, oppression and our failed economic system.


FUREE’s members joined the 20,000 New Yorkers who came out last month to support the 99% struggling to transform our economy and make the banks and CEOs pay for the crisis they created through a system that exploits low-income, working and middle class families who are the back bone of this country.

This past Thursday, FUREE joined ALIGN to add some Brooklyn flavor to the occupy actions by denouncing JPMorgan Chase at their MetroTech offices for taking millions of our tax-payer dollars while breaking pledges around job creation and setting off a practice of market-led development that has displaced the everyday people who built Fort Greene, other communities in  Brooklyn and NYC.  Check out press coverage of our joint action in the NY Daily News, the NY Times Local blog, the Brooklyn Paper, and the Atlantic Yards Report.

Last Saturday, we helped lead a spirited Occupy Brooklyn "March to Evict Corporate Greed" that highlighted many of FUREE's campaign targets in the Downtown Brooklyn area. Check out clips in the  Brooklyn Paper, Fort Greene Patch and even Fox News. (Yeah, we know.)

This Thursday is time to STRAIGHTEN OUR BACKS AND WORK FOR OUR FREEDOM!

We'll be marking the 2-month anniversary of the protests and deepening our collective efforts to resist austerity, rebuild our communities and reclaim democracy!

*Metrocards will be provided. You must confirm you are coming.

Details: At 5 pm, tens of thousands of people will gather at Foley Square (just across from City Hall) in solidarity with laborers demanding jobs to rebuild this country's infrastructure and economy. A gospel choir and a marching band will also be performing.

Afterwards we all go on a permitted march to cross Brooklyn Bridge and bring it home to BROOKLYN!!!

Let's make it as musical a march as possible - bring your songs, your voice, your spirit! Meet at the FUREE offices at 4pm to head to the mass march together.  We'll have free Metrocards for all FUREE members.  Wear your FUREE t-shirts!
