2011-08-23 Press Release | #usdor call to action & planned protests #Sept17 for #occupywallstreet #ows


American institutions and government have been captured by oligarchs and kleptocrats, who systematically set about stealing and looting what was once a great nation.

America can once again be a great nation, but we must take it back. NOBODY will do this for us. It will not be handled back to us by bought 'representatives'.

Wall Street is a huge contributor to the political machine, which in turns enables Wall Street's corporate plunder of our nation. Both the Democratic and Republican parties set the bankster agenda because of the MONEY. When we speak of 'taking the MONEY out of politics', we have no choice but to focus on the sources of the MONEY.

As a critical FIRST STEP, we call on Citizens to take the lead. Bring your friends and neighbors together to non-violently protest the tyranny of kleptocrats on Sept 17, 2011 (#Sept17).

We at usdayofrage.org DO NOT tolerate violence of any kind. US Day of Rage NYC, San Francisco, and Los Angeles stand is solidarity with each others' actions and endorse the planned actions of the NYC Assembly to #occupywallstreet on #Sept17.

  • We will support and endorse the planned action of a NON-VIOLENT occupation of the financial district by the free and independent assembly of people, which is currently being planned by the NYC Assembly. We will post their website and plans as soon as they are live. The next assembly meeting is Saturday, August 27, 2011 at 5pm in Tompkins Square Park. Come down. Everyone is welcome.

    We will continue to support them in the mean time by attending meetings, live tweeting meetings, and participating in the action to #occupywallstreet. Please keep in mind that tactics and logistics for this action are still being planned, and that 'Wall Street" is a term for the financial district of New York City.

  • US Day of Rage (http://www.usdayofrage.org) will also plan one day non violent protests and actions against major banks on Sept 17, 2011 in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York (and more as they become official).

    We do this in order to enable working people and parents, or anyone who cannot #occupywallstreet to make their voices heard on Sept 17, 2011. We will post details of our planned actions and a map of major banking institutions in NYC by the end of the week. Hints: All seeing eyes. Monopoly Money. Get out of Jail Free Cards.

  • Regardless of political persuasion or faith, Americans realize that these corporations and banksters feed off our nation, spawning a host of threats to liberty and national security. We need like minded people of all stripes to join us. As Americans we may bang our head on other matters, but on this we totally agree.

    In a democracy: progressives; unions; conservatives; tea party; and unaffiliated Americans can govern and work things out. In a kleptocracy, controlled by the banksters, we cannot. We must stop their influence, their motives, and their tricks, from continuing to destroy our democratic republic, and together we can do it.

    US Day of Rage (usdayofrage.org) demands that money be removed from the buying of politicians who feed the Wall Street beast. We demand that the resources of our nation no longer be used to coddle and benefit banksters and their minions. We demand that the US Government diligently reign in the parasitic destruction wreaked by Wall Street. We demand that our nation no longer be held hostage to 'too big to fail' banks. We demand that solutions be found that stop the Federal Reserve from stealing our future.


Days of Rage - Get out of the cage (Rattle It)!

Apathy is endemic in the US.
What can be done to unseat the corrupt and the wicked without dismantling the system that permits and promotes it?
Freedom of speech and assembly?
In Europe, people take to the streets, make some noise, some make a mess.
In the US, what do people do when their tuition goes up or the retirement age is raised, or they are forbidden to join organized labor? Go out and buy something that makes them feel all better? Sit on the couch and veg in front of the TV?
Understand, once you are arrested you are in the system (if not already).
In America, many people are reticent to rattle the cage.
Perhaps a future campaign theme could be "Get Off Your Ass, America."
Who knows what it will take to do it?
Your efforts are appreciated. Even when you play nice, some of the cops won't. So stay OUT of the cage and off the radar.
Best Regards!


There are never more than a small percentage of people who will understad or care about anything enough to overcome enertia. The bulk of the masses we occasionally see in protest are cattle. They arrive because they have nothing better to do or happened to be transiting the area and stopped to watch what was happening. This dumb herd instinct also can make them dangerous. Without direction they become a mob. A mob has no intelligence of moral decency, they will as soon work for or against progress. The tensions and frustrations we all suffer today only makes this blind movement worse. Angry people don't think well.


How have any protests or organizations in the United States made any significant changes in how the government and the corporations operate and exact their policies?
I think the collective fervor draws people seeking camaraderie, because sometimes they may feel isolated and alone. It might boost their spirit and momentum in the short run, but what is the point when one gets arrested? Who wants to be in the database?
Oftentimes agitators are put in the crowds at large protests. The press eats this up like candy when someone gets out of line. Some people are monkey-see, monkey-do. Others get caught in the melee.
It is heartening to see there is an organized effort of this magnitude to prove not all Americans are apathetic slouches who will quietly acquiesce to the injustice around them. It draws attention to the problem but one is perplexed to find a solution when the system has already been permitted to progress to this point.
Information is power, but the key is getting people to care about it. This is what protests do by drawing attention to the issues. Alas, when the powers that be refuse to listen and marginalize dissent, this is where public protests are futile.
Thus, the conundrum.
