Occupy Wall Street
October 12, 2011
Early Friday morning, October 7, WGAE President Michael Winship accompanied AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on a visit to the Occupy Wall Street camp at Zucotti Park in the Financial District. They met with many of the demonstrators and expressed continued support for their protest.
Writers Guild members joined thousands of other union members and students in support of Occupy Wall Street at a rally in Foley Square on October 5, and then marched to Zuccotti Park, where the protesters have been camping since September 17. Member Earl Peterson couldn’t make it down, but said, “...This is a great message you are delivering. Some have forgotten what this country was built on: people.” See more pictures
