Asian Americans have had a long history of involvement in movements to correct injustices in our society. The Occupy Wall Street movement is bringing much needed attention to the plight of many Americans who are struggling from the economic downturn and the increasing divide between the have’s and have not’s.
As 13% of the population, Asian American New Yorkers also have much to lose if we as a city and nation continue on this path where budget cuts are decimating safety net services. The Asian American community stands in solidarity to protect the most vulnerable in our society and call for fair share tax reform.
We want to take this opportunity and join with the remarkable people who have stood their ground and be part of the Occupy Wall Street. Join us, join the many individuals who will come to Zuccotti Park tomorrow at 2pm, and who have signed on to endorse this Call for Action!
The path of the march with the banner “Occupy Wall Street with Peace” will be from Bwoery to Worth Street onto Centre Street and Park Row, walking past City Hall Park to Broadway to our destination Zuccotti Park on Cedar Street. We welcome others to join the march from the start or anywhere along the route or at 2pm at Zuccotti Park.
