“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

While you're visiting the website, download one of our web buttons and add it to your website or blog, to help spread the word about this not-to-be-missed protest.
We are still in negotiations with the NYC police over the route, so we can't yet announce where to assemble, but we can tell you that it will be in a central Manhattan location, with the march stepping off at noon. We will share more details as soon as they are available. There will be places for organized contingents to gather, although we will not be able to begin assigning spots until the route is finalized.
The march will proceed through the streets of New York City and culminate with a massive action-oriented festival, featuring hundreds of grassroots groups and campaigns. There will be tents dedicated to different issues and themes; exhibits, displays, and information; street performers; and much more. We will not be holding a traditional rally. Groups wishing to table at the festival will soon be able to sign up for space at www.april29.org -- keep checking back.
