Occupy Wall Street has put out a call for labor unions across the country to join in solidarity with the Occupy movement on Thursday, November 17th. With unemployment rates remaining high, this national day of action will call for solidarity amongst the Occupy movements across the United States as we demand jobs, not cuts! Join with fellow GEO colleagues, UIC students, fellow unions, and community members for an afternoon of events in Chicago, beginning with a meet up and rally with Occupy UIC in the UIC Quad at 1:30 p.m. The schedule of events for the rest of the afternoon is as follows:
1:30 Occupy UIC Quad meet up and rally
2:30 Head to Congress and Michigan to join Student Feeder march
3:30 Rally at Thompson Center (put on by Stand Up! Chicago)
4:30 Direct action planned by Stand Up! Chicago
5:30 Rally at LaSalle and Jackson site of Occupy Chicago
Please join us for some or all of the events and stand in solidarity with fellow unions across the country for this national day of action!
You can find more information about this and other events at the Stand Up! Chicago website.
