Going to the city tomorrow morning? Occupy Wall Street has other plans in mind, as the movement is planning a nationwide “May Day” protest, taking “direct action” by occupying Manhattan-bound bridges and tunnels.
According to the OWS website, May 1 will prove how a day without “the 99 percent” will shut down the economy. The site is encouraging supporters to, “Take to the streets on Tuesday” with “No Work, No School, No Housework, No Shopping.”
OWS cites upcoming the protests as “the first truly nationwide General Strike in U.S. history… For the first time, workers, students, immigrants, and the unemployed from over 125 U.S. cities will stand together for economic justice.”
Dozens of permitted and verboten May Day 2012 actions are scheduled in locations throughout New York City.
It could prove to be tricky for determined commuters tomorrow morning, so check in for tips with Clever Commute, and stay with Baristanet for updates!
