We are here to bring Occupy Wall Street two both counties of Long Island!

Bringing the message local.

Welcome to Occupy Long Island!

The income of the richest 1% in the U.S. soared 275 % from 1979 to 2007
but
the middle class grew by just 40%
but
the bottom 20% grew by just 18%.

Not really a surprise as CEO-level salaries and bonuses rise and taxes on the same 1% of the US continue to decrease.

During that same time the cost rose for:

  • Health Care     150%
  • Housing            56%
  • Education        43%

information from the Congressional Budget Office via ABCNews

Not really a surprise as CEO-level salaries and bonuses rise and taxes on the same 1% of the US continue to decrease.

According to the 6 O’clock ABCNews broadcast on October 26th 94% of Americans do not feel they can get ahead.

The Pew Research Center for the People and the Press with their question of:
From what you’ve read and heard, do you strongly support, somewhat support, somewhat oppose, or strongly oppose…the Occupy Wall Street Movement? Only 39% support the movement.

THIS IS REALLY a SURPRISE since CEO-level salaries and bonuses rise and taxes on the same 1% of the US continue to decrease.

Let us inspire the difference of 55% to support this progress movement!

Here we hope to gather all of the Occupy solidarity groups throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties.

All Long Islanders are welcome!

  1. Not to mention that the Bush administration involved the .99 in an unnecessary war in Iraq and allowed the war in Afghanistan to spin out of control, that the deregulation of Wall St. and investment banking resulted in the derivatives trading that brought us the Great Recession, that lobby pressure on Congress brought the lax regulation, really no regulation, of offshore oil drilling that resulted in the BP oil spill, and on and on…

  2. Any contact info for this site? We’ve been posting video & pics to the facebook.com/OccupyLongIsland page. Feel free to use them here. 🙂

  3. Sounds good. Will have to look around and see what other groups on LI can use some support. Patchogue seems really active. Maybe there…

  4. Have you considered pooling your resources with 99declaration.org….they are attempting to orchestrate a 3rd Continential Congress…there is a Draft for a redress of greivances that I think will blow your mind….I am not sure of the validity of ANY of the groups I have contacted…but this one seems to be true to the cause and not a scam. I Imploe you to take a look if you haven’t already.

  5. Oh yeah…they have a Commercial to be aired 12-5 I think…keith olberman show….Veru powerful stuff IMO…99declaration.org…also on facebook and the rest…Look it up.
