Anonymous plans occupation of Wall Street

September 17th could be an interesting day on Wall Street.  Members of hacktivist collective Anonymous along with Culture Jammers and Adbusters under the umbrella group S17 plan an occupation of Wall Street to last months or more.  The group asks supporters to do only one thing and that is to "bring tent".

"Simultaneous occupations of financial districts are now being planned in New York City, Madrid, Milan, London, Paris and San Francisco. With a bit of luck, this list of participating cities will grow," said Anonymous in an internet posting.

"If we can pull together just the right mix of nonviolence, tenacity and strategic smarts, S17 could be the beginning of the global revolution we've all been dreaming about for so long ... wouldn't that be lovely."

The group plans to occupy Wall Street for a lengthy period of time in a non violent demonstration against the corporatist policies of the government to the detriment of the people.

"The abuse of corporations, banks and governments ends here," it proclaims.

It remains to be seen what effect this demonstration will have on stock prices although it could hardly be bullish for stocks.  I will be keeping an eye on this as further developments arise.

Here is Anonymous' youtube video promoting the demonstration.


  1. I doubt they succeed, but I hope they do.

  2. Eh, doubt they'll succeed but it'll be interesting to see.

  3. Awesome video! Great find! Thanks for the update!

  4. It'll be interesting to see how this all pans out.

    Hopefully there's enough people on S17 to make a difference

  5. i wonder if this will plan out like they want it to.

  6. I wonder how many people they will able to gather. If a lot, they could create some havoc. I doubt it will affect stock prices much however, unless it truly does start off the global revolution.

  7. Someone has to stand up to them (wall street), otherwise we're in serious trouble.

  8. I used to be on their side until they fucked with Sony and I couldn't play my PS3 online for a month. Those bastards.
