-- for Saturday at 11 AM across Broadway from at Liberty Park @ Red Cube corner

-- Please assemble peacefully on the sidewalk at 140 Broadway.

A company such as Steve Jobs's Apple or General Motors or Ben & Jerry's has a responsibility to act in a responsible manner. Profit is not bad, but adding social justice makes these organizations much better.

No one ever thought of prosecuting Steve Jobs for anything. He was not a criminal. He used his life well. Steve Jobs would not have been a success on today's Wall Street. "We Are The 1%" was not his motto.

"Think different" sums it up.

-- All of you are invited to Occupy Wall Street on Saturday, October 8th at 11 AM

-- Please surround the Red Cube at 140 Broadway, at the corner of Broadway and Liberty Street

-- A speaker from OWS will adress the crowd. A statement of purpose and an invitation to support OWS will be presented.

That site can accommodate 250 easily. As many as 1,000 extra people can be accommodated directly with OWS plans for Saturday afternoon.

Freely exercise your freedom of speech and of the press; and the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Please, feel free to do all of this with Occupy Wall Street.

"The resistance continues at Liberty Square and Nationwide!"

The companies of Financial Capitalism are different. The crimes of their employees are what produced the Great Recession of 2008 and massive unemployment. They also took trillions of dollars from pension funds and from other small investors and generated more trillions of bad mortgages.

Prosecute Wall Street's criminals.

Fraud is still fraud. Financial industry regulations must not be cited to usurp the general protections of the Common Law. NYSE Rules and SEC and banking loopholes must not be allowed to erase centuries of criminal practice.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    "Look at Apple, they have $76 billion dollars in their checking account, and they’re not spending it," says Hoffa in one part of the interview, referring to the company's unusually massive cash reserves. "Instead of investing here, everything they do is in China, or in Asia somewhere...There’s something wrong with that."

    Apple relies heavily on cheap labor in China and Taiwan to maximize profits. The company's main manufacturing partner, Foxconn, has been accused of underpaying workers even relative to Chinese standards, while still forcing employees to work punishing hours to meet deadlines. It has also been accused of violence and abuse in some instances; guards at the company's Shenzhen campus are known to carry machineguns.

    Apple is one of several US corporations that has been pushing for a special "tax holiday" on repatriated overseas profits.
