NEW YORK â€” Occupy Wall Street activists have vowed to avenge their eviction from a protest camp with an attempt Thursday to disrupt the New York Stock Exchange, then rally on the city’s subway and major bridges.
The websiteÂ occupywallst.org announced a “Global Day of Action” that will combine demonstrations across the United States with protests in other nations including Belgium, Germany, Poland and Spain.
The level of participation in the rallies could provide a clear indication of Occupy Wall Street’s clout exactly two months since the movement sprang up to protest against the elite “one percent” — and two days after New York police cleared out the tent camp in Manhattan.
“We will no longer tolerate the oppression of the one percent,” the OWS website said.
“This is why we’re fighting back tomorrow…. We will shut down Wall Street and we will #occupy all of New York City with our bodies, voices and ideas.”
