AUG 12, 2012 – The musical activist group calling themselves "Guitarmy" that is closely allied with the worldwide Occupy Movement have plans all this week for special actions and concerts in New York, from marches to bring attention to the plight of the 99%, to protesting the Spectra "Fracking" gas pipeline. Tom Morello and even street musicians will all unite and push for the 99%.
Guitarmy also responded to the moronic comment by Jay-Z the other day when he said about the Occupy Movement, "“I don’t know what the fight is about. What do we want? Do you know?” Guitarmy posted this on their website in response:
"We have spent one year on the streets organizing for exactly the things Jay rapped about in his early days, ending urban poverty, ending Stop & Frisk and police use of lethal force, of returning dignity and hope to the everyday people of New York City. These are simple civil rights issues we know Jay-Z must support, and we would love to help open his heart and mind to the work Occupy has helped do in his own former communities.
On SEPTEMBER 28th we will arrive at his sold-out Barclays concert to lovingly show Jay-Z what we want and how he can help: by encouraging his fans to take action for social justice in their communities, schools, workplaces, and homes.
Join us September 28 at Barclays at 6pm for an Occupy Wall Street teach-in and musical performance. Let’s be a sincere answer to Jay’s question. In turn we will ask on of him, one Florence Reece wrote in the 1930s and still matters now, “Which Side Are You On?”"
