Greece’s fight is our fight, as they are rebelling against the same economic oppression we are stateside.
We will show Greece and simultaneously the US lawmakers and the 1%ers that we are aware of what is happening and that we support the same struggles of people across miles and countries. We will have a solidarity march & rally to demonstrate our dedication to the 99 percent’s struggle for a better world.
