Inicio 09/23/2011 @ 9 am, y termina cuando el gobierno pone las cosas bien.

Todo aquel que ha sentido engañado por nuestro gobierno una y otra vez la elección de dinero por los derechos humanos están invitados a mostrar su apoyo en la partida del centro. Participar en una protesta pacífica. Todos los puntos de vista, todas las personas, de todos los ámbitos de la vida, por favor venga y comparta sus opiniones acerca de cómo este país puede cambiar para mejor.

Sólo tenemos un objetivo - para unir y para demostrar que nuestro gobierno no nos quedaremos por su corrupción y la codicia. Cada uno tiene sus razones. Ahora es el momento para compartir.


Durante el día:

Camiseta, abrigo, paraguas, ponchos. Vea el canal del tiempo, estar preparados. Probablemente va a llover. Use varias capas y llevar una muda de ropa.

Signos no pueden tener palos en ellos! También he visto a gente en problemas por medio de las señales hechas de material duro. No son ilegales, pero será tomada por la policía. Así que las hojas de cartón o de papel grande son la mejor opción. Sea creativo.

Traer la diversión! Trae juegos, llevar cartas, traer libros, papel, artículos de color, instrumentos, nada.

Protector solar. Incluso si está nublado, puede quemarse.

Alimentos y agua. Botellas de agua preferible al agua embotellada

Velas. Incluso si no vas a quedar toda la noche, si te vas a quedar a oscuras, se llevará a cabo una vigilia con velas a las 9 pm el primer viernes.

Noche a la mañana:

Tiendas de campaña - si lo desea. La policía de Nueva York han estado arrastrando manifestantes pacíficos en tiendas de campaña, por lo que no puede ser la mejor idea. Sin embargo, Nueva York tiene una ley en contra de tiendas de campaña y no lo hacemos.

Saco de dormir, manta, almohada. Una lona (o algunas bolsas de basura!) Para alejar la lluvia.

Repelente de insectos.

Linterna / lámpara.

"Duchas portátiles" al diluir la cantidad de jabón en grandes cantidades de agua, usted puede hacer un lavado propósito en todo el cuerpo que no necesita enjuague. Prueba en casa, usted debería ser capaz de frotar con un paño seco y con otro, y no tienen ningún residuo de jabón. Toallitas húmedas para bebé funciona tan bien.

Una toalla. Siempre lleve su toalla! Utilizarlo en caso de lluvia, derrama algo sobre ti mismo, a lavarse, a sentarse en la hierba pulg!/OccupyChicago


This is not how I expected my retirement to begin.


This is not how I expected my retirement to begin.



The Statue of Libery proclaims

“Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”


We, the people of the United States, are choking on the unemployment rates, stuffed in racist, classist landfills, wandering the streets looking for a future.

We are the huddled masses.

We are the wretched refuse; we are cast ashore by unemployment; we are homeless because of debt; the tempests of corporation and government have tossed us to be dashed on the rocks. 

There is no golden door for us.

There is no future for us in the current state of this country.

We only have our voices, our bodies, and each other. Instead of complaining in private, take your conversations, your ideas, and your heartbreak to the streets. Join us in Chicago as we take back the city and the future for our own dreams and goals.

Join us Friday, September 23 starting at 9 am at the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower. For more information, see Follow us on twitter #occupychi

Supporters of and Anonymous are raging against New York City’s Wall Street with increasing success. From, the requirements, the people’s demands, our requirements for our society are breaking the chains that shackle us. We have only one demand: an ultimatum for a better life. 

·      “On September 21st, 2011, Troy Davis, an innocent man, was murdered by the state of Georgia. Troy Davis was one of the 99 percent. Ending capital punishment is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, the richest 400 Americans owned more wealth than half of the country’s population. Ending wealth inequality is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, four of our [NYC] members were arrested on baseless charges. Ending police intimidation is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, we determined that Yahoo lied about being in spam filters. Ending corporate censorship is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, roughly eighty percent of Americans thought the country was on the wrong track. Ending the modern gilded age is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, roughly 15% of Americans approved of the job Congress was doing. Ending political corruption is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, roughly one sixth of Americans did not have work. Ending joblessness is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, roughly one sixth of America lived in poverty. Ending poverty is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, roughly fifty million Americans were without health insurance. Ending health-profiteering is our one demand.

·      On September 21st, 2011, America had military bases in around one hundred and thirty out of one hundred and sixty-five countries. Ending American imperialism is our one demand. 

·      On September 21st, 2011, America was at war with the world. Ending war is our one demand.

On September 21st, 2011, we stood in solidarity with Madrid, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Madison, Toronto, London, Athens, Sydney, Stuttgart, Tokyo, Milan, Amsterdam, Algiers, Tel Aviv, Portland and Chicago. Soon we will stand with Phoenix, Montreal, Cleveland and Atlanta.

We’re still here. We are growing. We intend to stay until we see movements toward real change in our country and the world.

You have fought all the wars. You have worked for all the bosses. You have wandered over all the countries. Have you harvested the fruits of your labors, the price of your victories? Does the past comfort you? Does the present smile on you? Does the future promise you anything? Have you found a piece of land where you can live like a human being and die like a human being? Join us.”

On September 23, join us as we stand in solidarity with the other 99 percent of the oppressed. Join us as we Occupy Chicago. Stand together Friday, September 23 starting at 9 am at the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower. For more information, see Follow on Twitter @occupyChicago #occupyChi

If you cannot attend, you can still help. Repost, retweet, reblog, share, forward.  

Come prepared

Looks like rain is in the forecast this weekend. Dress accordingly. Thought I would post a quick checklist of things to bring with you.

Waterproof clothes

Extra food. Things like granola bars and energy food is a good idea, we might be there awhile.

Extra batteries or stand alone chargers. Let’s keep the message rolling while we are there.

Signs. Be creative let YOUR voice be heard.

Candle for overnight vigil for Troy Davis.

These are just off the top of my head, post in the comments any suggestions. See you all there!

PLEASE contribute your ideas, or just give a shout out and an upvote, on the reddit thread. I want to see everyone discussing what we want to do tomorrow, and every day afterwards!

Attention concerned citizens. America is in decline, slowly strangled by the greed of Wall St and corporate bailouts. Our democracy has been hijacked by special interests and big business. Our politicians no longer work for the people. It is time for a change. Today we invite you to downtown Chicago to stand strong with our brothers and sisters in New York. Join us on the steps of historic Sears/Willis tower at 9am Friday, September 23rd for a march toward the Federal Reserve building in Chicago’s financial district. Let your voice be heard. United, we will no longer idly sit by while the wealthiest 1% of America profits off our backs and buys our politicians wholesale. Let them know we want campaign finance reform and that corporations being considered people will no longer be accepted. Will you stand with the 99% and be heard? Today is the day that America stands as one, that we can save our democracy, and we can have a better tomorrow. Visit or to learn more about this movement. Use #occupychi on twitter to speak your mind.

(Thanks to Andrew!)
