ows in grand central

On Jan. 3, Occupy Wall Street took over Grand Central Station with a rush hour flash mob to protest the signing of the NDAA

When: Tomorrow, March 29 @ 3pm
Where: Gather at Foley Square, march to Union Square

March 29th marks the beginning of the anti-NDAA class action lawsuit, launched by several groups and individuals, that seeks to stop the unconstitutional provisions which allow the US military to indefinitely detain any suspected "terrorist" from going into effect (sections 1021 and 1022 specifically). This case, if successful, would force the government to remove those unconstitutional elements, and further, to better define its terms, such as "associated forces" and "belligerents", as well as clearly define who is considered a threat to the United States. For more information on the lawsuit go here.

On Thursday the 29th, the first round of plaintiffs, dubbed the Freedom Seven, will testify in front of a federal judge. We must show solidarity, and we must show our discontent with an authoritarian piece of legislation that destroys our civil liberties. JOIN THE PEOPLE AND MARCH FOR FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FROM FOLEY SQUARE TO UNION SQUARE!
