Tomorrow, the Aviation Week and Credit Suisse will be holding
their 17th annual Aerospace & Defense Finance Conference in
NYC. These war profiteers export death in the name of defense.
They have obscene influence over our democracy with politicians
in their pockets and hundreds of lobbyists working congress.
They sell arms to to the 1% so that war can be waged against the 99% in efficient and technologically
advanced ways. #OWS will not stand silent as these dangerous parasites take our tax dollars and
turn them into arms and profit.
WHEN: Wednesday, 11/30, two rallies/marches--6:30am meet up and rally to non-violently
interrupt business as usual as delegates enter the conference, and 4:30pm to rally against militarism.
WHERE: Both rallies are In Madison Sq. Park near the intersection of 24th and Madison.
The Conference is being held at One Madison Avenue 12th Floor -
(Park Ave South between 24th & 23rd streets).

just as coordinated nationwide police attacks have turned our cities into battlegrounds in an effort
to disrupt our Occupy movement. Read More...
