December 17th: Occupy Events in NYC and DC

More info at occupwallst.org and nycga.net:

Saturday, December 17th at 12PM
DUARTE SQ. PARK, 6th AVE & CANAL in NYC
Protect & Celebrate the Occupy Movement
for social and economic justice

Join artists, musicians, and local community members for an all-day performance event in support of Occupy Wall Street and the occupation of space and reclaiming of the commons.

Freedom of expression and the right to assemble are sacred human freedoms. Through bold, courageous actions, Occupy Wall Street has renewed a sense of hope, revived a belief in community and awakened a revolutionary spirit too long silenced. To Occupy is to embody the spirit of liberation that we wish to manifest in our society.

On Saturday, December 17th – the 3 month anniversary of the birth of this movement, we will gather to celebrate Occupy Wall Street and to occupy space together.

And, for folks who can get to DC on Dec 17th:

Occupy DC has a big event to support Bradley Manning (who allegedly leaked government secrets about the war):
