Occupy the Highway: From Wall Street to Super Committee

Posted on November 8, 2011 by


It will be one of the largest direct actions to date in the Occupy movement – at least in the United States. Occupy the Highway will begin tomorrow from Liberty Square and will include marching 20 miles a day for the next two weeks.

It begins at 9 a.m. The march will ultimately end at the Occupy DC site, where Occupiers will arrive in time for the November 23 Super Committee Meeting to protest the Bush Tax Cuts that benefit the top 1 percent. Organizers will take the opportunity to engage with people living in rural communities along the way. Marchers will march from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., which are banker’s hours. General Assemblies (GA) will be held nightly at 7 p.m. Two days off are allotted, and will be spent at both Occupy Philly and Occupy Baltimore.
