Spanish Indignados Join #OCCUPYWALLSTREET

By adbusters.org

Financial districts across the globe are on high alert.

Hey jammers,

A bit of profound strategic news to lift your sails: #OCCUPYWALLSTREET will now happen simultaneously on two continents!

Inspired by the visceral potential of the Wall Street occupation, the Indignados of Spain just sent us word that on September 17th they too will set up camp outside the Madrid Stock Exchange. The surprise announcement, that their #TOMALABOLSA will join your #OCCUPYWALLSTREET, may embolden other cities as well. A rumor suggests the financial district of Paris may be next … or will it be Toronto’s Bay Street, Sydney’s Martin Place, or some yet to be chosen site in London?

Then on October 6th another kind of encampment begins in Washington, DC.

With a bit of luck, and the right mix of nonviolence and tenacity, S17 just might cascade into a Tahrir Moment on an international scale – wouldn’t that be something?

We call on jammers across the world to occupy financial districts on September 17:
