WHAT: Day of International Solidarity and Action against BNY Mellon on January 10

WHEN: Tuesday, January 10th starting at 3:30 pm

BACKGROUND: Occupy Pittsburgh has called out to the 99% around the world for a Day of International Solidarity and Action against BNY Mellon on January 10, our first day in court. Since the October 15th, we have rallied and occupied People’s Park, a space formerly known as Mellon Green. As far as we know, Pittsburgh’s is the only Occupy encampment to reclaim land from a bank.

On January 10, we ask supporters to:

  • Temporarily change their addresses on Facebookand other web sites to: 1 People’s Park, Pittsburgh PA 15219
  • Send mail to BNY Mellon’s Pittsburgh office(500 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15258) with the return address of: 1 People’s Park, Pittsburgh PA 15219
  • Hold non-violent demonstrations against BNY Mellonaround the world (the bank’s headquarters is One Wall Street, New York City; and offices are in Boston, London, Moscow, Sydney, Cairo and cities in every hemisphere)

To BNY Mellon, we have one unified response: You can’t evict an idea whose time has come.
