- 12 MAY -
Meet the 1% with Occupy London
Global Day of Action
‘We are all in this together’ never rang so hollow. There is no ‘together’ and they are not part of ‘we’. They want us to pay for their crisis … So we'll pay them a visit, one by one.
On 12 May people around the world will rise up again responding to the global call for action that marks the birth of the indignados movement.
It’s time to face the 1 per cent. And guess what? They are right here in London!
We'll visit those who gambled with our pensions and savings, created financial nonsense to make money out of thin air, paid hundreds of thousands to wine and dine with our ‘elected’ representatives, were bailed out, evaded billions in taxes and secured 40% of the world’s wealth for themselves.
They are doing everything they can to keep the status quo. But it’s time for an economy that puts people’s well-being and the environment we live in before corporate profits. And they are in our way.
BRING A TENT
More details to be announced and a map will be made available before 12 May.

What we need funding for
There is a great deal of publicity that needs to take place and a need for posters, flyers and a beautiful map of the 1% that will be given on the day as well as other props. Help us make it big, bold and loud and see you on 12 May.
