November 17th marks two months since the Occupy Wall Street movement launched in New York City before quickly spreading across the country with over a hundred Occupy events from coast to coast. Thousands of people gathered in New York today to celebrate the two month anniversary and continue to fight for the 99%.
Today also marks six days until the Congressional super committee's deadline to present a long-term debt reduction plan to Congress. Congress then has one month to vote by simple majority to pass or reject the long-term debt reduction proposal. If you haven't already, take a moment to call your Senators and remind them that they and the super committee work for the 99%, not Wall Street bankers. As part of the November 17 day of action, members of the super committee received an alarm clock from their constituents with the message message: "Wake Up! We're in a Revenue crisis that can't be solved on the backs of the 99%. The money isn't in our pockets or in our Social Security. It's on Wall Street."
