The Struggle of the 99% against the exploitation of the 1% is not just an election between Democrats and Republicans, it is a struggle between the Haves and the Have Nots. We must remember this and not let up our will to fight back against the 1%, even after the recall. We will be starting at Pere Marquette, at which point we are going to march through the city in what is sure to be a spirited exercise of the Power of the People. This rally will occur NO MATTER WHICH CANDIDATE WINS THE RECALL! If your group is interested in endorsing this event, contact us at [email protected]! Occupy Milwaukee will always keep it in the streets!

We need supplies to create flyers, banners, drums and signs for this huge action! If you would like to donate to Occupy Milwaukee, please see the donation section of our website. Every little bit counts, so please donate $1, $5 if you can!

After voting on June 5th we have to make our voices heard in order to hold our Governor accountable. Occupy Milwaukee, community allies and labor unions will march on June 6th to make the following demands of our Governor:

  1. Repeal Act 10 – Hands off unions and collective bargaining. No cuts to education or Badger Care.
  2. Restore the Equal Pay Act – We demand and end to workplace discrimination.
  3. Tax the 1% – Hold the banksters and the 1% accountable for their economic crisis, and stop the cuts to working and oppressed people.

We will rally at Pier Marquette Park before marching on Milwaukee’s banking district.

Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally. #ows is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations. The movement is inspired by popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, and aims to expose how the richest 1% of people are writing the rules of an unfair global economy that is foreclosing on our future.
