In 1886, hundreds of thousands of Americans filled the streets of New York, Boston, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh and Chicago demanding an eight-hour work day. The demonstration was dubbed the “Second Declaration of Independence.” Now the Occupy Movement is saying it’s time for a Third.

One member told Metro the strike will give a large number of people an “opportunity to see what this country looks like when the 99 percent stand up and speak up,“ and hopefully what they see will cause them to “reflect on where we are as a country.”

It's for the 99% to remind the rest of the world just how much they matter.
