Occupy the Dream to Demonstrate at Federal Reserve Banks

By  | 

The "Occupy the Dream" coalition is calling for a National Day of Action to mark Martin Luther King Day today.

Leaders are calling for demonstrations outside all 13 Federal Reserve Banks across the country.

Two members of the coalition's national steering committee, Benjamin Chavis Jr., and the Reverend Jamal Bryant, say the effort will be led by prominent members of the African American clergy, Occupy Wall Street participants, students and others concerned about income inequality and economic justice in America.

Bryant says Occupy Wall Street has snatched the torch of Dr. King and reignited in America the flame that was seen in Tunisia and Egypt -- to spotlight poverty as a critical issue.
