April 25 appears to be a busy day for Occupy protesters and activists in the United States as several demonstrations have been scheduled across the country, according to occupywallst.org. The following are major events scheduled for today.
ACT UP and OCCUPY! 25th Anniversary Action
City Hall (Broadway and Murray St)
ACT UP is calling for a small tax (0.05%) on Wall Street transactions and speculative trades in order to raise the money needed to end the global AIDS epidemic and provide universal healthcare in the U.S.
The Exorcism of Student Loan Debt
Brooklyn College Quad, 2900 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn
Reverend Billy Talen, Rebel Diaz, and Occupy Wall Street's own Capoiera troupe will be performing while an ‘exorcism’ on student loan debt takes place on the steps of Boylan Hall.
1T Day National Day of Action Against Student Debt
On April 25th the total amount of student loan debt in the U.S. is due to top 1 trillion dollars. This marks a momentous victory for Wall Street, and the Occupy Student Debt Campaign has organized a national day of protest in response. Join us as we march to Wall Street to help the banksters celebrate their achievement.
