Momentum is building for a mass mobilization of progressive New Yorkers on March 20th to occupy our state Capitol in Albany.
We need to take on Governor 1% Andrew Cuomo in the last week of state budget negotiations. Budgets are moral documents and we need one to serve the 99%, not Cuomo's presidential ambitions or Wall Street donors.
The 1% has collectively seen the rise of a progressive populist message that is resonating across the country. The powers that be are responding to the occupy-inspired zeitgeist through Andrew Cuomo.
Albany's entrenched interests can easily pass policies for their corporate sponsors and billionaire backers. The 99% needs to stand up for democracy and to make our voices heard.Civil Disobedience and protests will take place throughout the day targeting Governor 1% and the handful of men lording over the budget. Arrestable and non-arrestable action will be occurring throughout the day.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you you might be interested in joining the civil disobedience at this event. For those who can't make it, we will also try to provide meaningful online actions you can take to spread the word! Stay tuned for more on that front, and check out:

- Facebook: See which of your friends are signed up and please invite more.
Our various causes all come under the collective umbrella of an idea true to the heart of Occupy Wall Street: our government structures should serve #AllOfUs, not just the 1%.
Demand a NY that works for all of us, and let's build the better world we know is possible, starting right here.
