With regard to the relationship between the "Occupy Wall Street" movement and demonstrations and the outpouring which must happen on October 22nd, the National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation (NDP), and the Movement of Resistance to Mass Incarceration, revolutionaries should be actively developing "the synergy" between them—and, especially in this immediate period, winning people involved in the "Occupy" protests to be actively involved in participating in, and in building for, NDP—in N.Y., but also other cities across the country. Imagine all—or a large part of—the "Occupy" protesters in NYC and elsewhere wearing black on Oct. 22nd—and many taking part in the NDP rallies, marches, etc. In order to maximize this, not only should work toward this objective be done in advance, in building for Oct. 22nd, but on the day itself there should be plans for NDP demonstrations—or at the least a significant contingent of people taking part in NDP—to go directly to the site(s) of the "Occupy" protests and work to incorporate as many people as possible in these ("Occupy") protests into the NDP activities (demonstrations, rallies, etc.). And work should be carried on/carried forward in developing this "synergy" beyond Oct. 22nd as well.
