Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

OWS Protesters Hold “Reboot” Rally in New York

HeadlineFeb 29, 2012

Hundreds of people gathered in New York’s Union Square Wednesday night for what organizers dubbed a “reboot” of the Occupy Wall Street movement for social and economic change. Occupy protests have lagged over the past two months amid the cold winter weather and a series of raids targeting encampments nationwide. Protesters said they hoped for a rejuvenated movement with the approaching spring.

Marvin Knight: “I’m almost sure that every movement in the history of the world started off, you know, big, then it went down, which don’t mean that it’s over. It only means that it has to be reorganized. That’s what we are in the process of doing now, reorganizing.”

Margaret Ratner Kunstler: “I feel that there’s this tremendous injustices in society, especially in the criminal justice system, and we all have to make our voices heard, because that’s the only way we’re going to make change.”
