OCCUPY VERIZON, OCCUPY THE LABOR MOVEMENT


I have a new article up at The Nation on Occupy Wall Street and the Communication Workers of America marching together against Verizon:

Trading in standard picket chants for “We are the 99 percent!” several hundred workers and activists marched from Manhattan Verizon headquarters down to Zuccotti Park Friday evening. Many wore “Occupy Wall Street! Occupy Verizon! Occupy Everything!” signs over red union t-shirts. Marchers circled the park before the march continued on to a nearby Verizon store, where the crowd chanted “Shame” at Verizon and “Thank you” to Occupy Wall Street. But many of the union marchers had lingered at Zuccotti Park, eager to witness the occupation whose energy and iconography is transforming their contract fight.

Check it out.
