Weingarten Responds to Court Decision To Evict Occupy Wall Street Protesters from Zuccotti Park
“This is much bigger than tarps, tents and protesters in the park—this is the beginning of a movement for economic equity…”
WASHINGTON— The New York State Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the eviction of Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park will not deter a movement that has made economic fairness for all Americans a part of our national dialogue. We owe it to ourselves and our country to continue this conversation, and to fight for an agenda that will reduce income inequality and create greater economic opportunity for the 99 percent.
This is much bigger than tarps, tents and protesters in the park—this is the beginning of a movement for economic equity, and to hold the 1 percent accountable for the ever-growing chasm between this country’s haves and have-nots. The AFT and the labor community will continue to support the Occupy Wall Street message of economic fairness through events such as the rallies on Nov. 17 and other activities being held across the nation.
