As IF you needed a reason to go downtown tomorrow and celebrate the amazing movement that is waking up America. Lou Reed & Patti Smith are scheduled to play on Saturday, December 17th – the three month anniversary of Occupy Wall St., the birthday of Bradley Manning, and the 1 year anniversary of the self-immolation of Mohamed Bouazizi – the act that sparked the Arab Spring.
Beloved New York band, Dean and Britta will be hitting the stage right before Lou, so make sure to be there on time!
WBAI will broadcast the event that starts at 12 noon EDT. See D17 Re-occupy for the official event.
Where is Duarte Square? It's at 6th avenue between Grand and Canal street in Manhattan.
