WE STILL WILL BE RAISING MUCH-NEEDED FUNDS UNTIL DECEMBER 4TH. THANK YOU, EVERYONE, WHO HELPED US REACH OUR GOAL!
We will continue to fundraise until December 4th, and call on everyone reading this to continue to donate, share, and hype this effort among your friends. We are not a major publishing house with access to infinite resources, we are a handful of friends who believe in what the Occupy movement stands for. We will continue to need your support, and your voices all the way though the 4th so please keep donating & sharing!
Any extra money raised will be used in the following order.
1.) Shipping fees on declaration packets being shipped internationally.
2.) The printing of surplus declarations to be handed out street-side in major cities (NYC, LA, Portland, Oakland, Seattle, Chicago)
3.) Photographing, documenting & publicizing this DIY publishing effort to design media outlets and the design community.
Media outlets have attempted to dismiss Occupy Wall Street as a movement without a message. This baseless indictment falls apart once you have read their declaration, and this is why we think it is so important to publish it and distribute it widely!
We are going to need your help to reach our goal of printing and distributing 100,000 copies!
This document is the first and only official declaration to come from the New York City General Assembly at Liberty Plaza, the epicenter of the Occupy Wall Street Movement. It is a summation of the grievances expressed by the occupiers, it is a call to action, and moreover it is a historic mile marker in the global fight for social, environmental, and economic justice. The Declaration of the Occupation of New York City, as transcribed and edited by Ryan Hoffman, Lex Rendon, and the Call to Action Working Group of Occupy Wall Street is a powerful reference for blossoming social struggles everywhere. In this second printing of 100,000 copies we will be including two other texts from the New York General Assembly, The Principles of Solidarity, and OWS' Statement of Autonomy, we also will be including a letter from the activists at Tahir Square to the Occupiers at Zuccotti Park. The Declaration of the Occupation, The Statement of Autonomy, and The Principles of Solidarity, are reflections of every voice amplified by the people’s mic at the NYC General Assembly at Liberty Square. You own this document. ...Everyone owns it.
Please consider donating to our printing and distribution, and please share this fundraising effort with others on facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc... We love you!
