October 7, 2011 marked 10 years since the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan and the start of the Global "War on Terror." Issues related to US-led wars and militarism should be central to the visions that are forming at #OccupyWallSt and the other #Occupations around the country. In an effort to highlight the devastation US militarism has caused across the globe for decades, we are creating an artistic intervention at Zuccotti Park. Snapshots of US military actions over the last 60 years will be displayed on signs in a bold embodied expression meant to spark discussion and include the voices of occupied peoples. We will also be distributing information on how to engage with the super-committee, with the internal committees of #OccupyWallSt as well as Afghan and Iraqi-led peace groups. Join us! -- South Asia Solidarity Initiative and War Resisters League
"Empire on Wall Street"
Snapshots of US military actions over the last 60 years will be displayed on signs in a visual artistic expression to educate and intervene at #OccupyWallSt in an effort to include more discussion including the voices of occupied peoples.
We are asking people to join us at 5:30pm on Friday Oct. 14 at the red cube to participate in this action by holding signs, passing out flyers for concrete things people can do to resist militarization & war, or stand in solidarity. WEAR BLACK!
**(The red cube is located at the corner of Broadway and Liberty Streets)
We hope that people who are from the directly affected communities by these actions can participate further.
