Subject: Community-labor march to Wall St. on Oct. 5
Please join us for a community-labor march this Wednesday, Oct. 5 as we demand that the wealthiest New Yorkers pay their fair share of taxes. Albany must renew the state millionaire's tax that is due to expire on Dec. 31.
At 4:30 p.m., we will begin handing out UFT hats at the UFT banner in Foley Square. The marchers will step off at 5 p.m. from Foley Square and head to Zuccotti Park, where they will be welcomed by the Occupy Wall Street protesters who have created an encampment to denounce corporate greed and the grossly unequal distribution of wealth in this country. Their rallying cry: “We are the 99 percent.”
