On Sept. 17, the Arab Spring becomes the new American Fall, with 20,000 revolutionaries in a tent city. Plus “solidarity” occupations in major financial centers worldwide, all ready for a long siege, vowing not to leave till they get their “one simple demand.”
Does this make it official? "American Autumn" is ON?
We like to think so.
Now a massive show of solidarity is rapidly emerging for Occupy Wall Street rallies at major financial centers: London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, L.A., San Francisco “and with a bit of luck, this list of participating cities will expand” maybe even include the world’s most powerful bank, the Federal Reserve Bank in Washington.
But will 20,000 show up? Warning: Could be lots more.In the coming days and weeks, we encourage you to imagine your hopes for the world. Who do you meet? How do you interact? Where do you go? What do you do? What does it feel like? Imagine, describe, and practice naming the shape of your hope.
Then come to Wall Street, and we will hope with you.
There is so much coming to life right now - can you feel it?
