This Thurs is a national day of action. Google “Get on the Bridge + November 17th” to see what’s going on in your area. #99percentWed Nov 16 01:47:59 via webWe The 99 Percent

Related events are planned for Richmond, Milwaukee, Portland and Pittsburgh. Local celebration plans include an announced march to Key Bridge at 2:30 p.m., but local chatter indicates protesters will be showing up around 4 p.m. — just before the evening rush hour begins. The Facebook invite suggests 3:30 p.m.
