Midtown Mayhem! Americans for Prosperity Takes on Occupy Wall Street in Manhattan!

***Thursday, September 20 at 10AM***

NEW YORK, NY – Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s leading conservative grassroots organization, will be going toe to toe with Occupy Wall Street this Thursday morning, September 20, in Midtown Manhattan.

AFP will hold a rally from 10:00-10:30am right outside of Rockefeller Center as part of the group’s national Failing Agenda Bus Tour and to combat Occupy’s demonstrations in Manhattan this week.

“The hooligans in the Occupy movement have brought nothing but civil unrest and havoc to New York City and all across the country,” said Steve Lonegan, state director of AFP’s New Jersey chapter. “It’s time someone stood up to these thugs and their radical, anarchistic agenda.”

“That’s why Americans for Prosperity is bringing our Failing Agenda Bus Tour to Manhattan,” added Lonegan. “The public needs to know the problem is President Obama’s failed big government agenda which has given us massive deficits and debt, crippling regulations, a government health care takeover, 48 months straight of unemployment over 8% and economic malaise, not Wall Street.”

“And unlike the hooligans in the Occupy movement, Americans for Prosperity activists will make their voices heard in a civilized, peaceful manner.”
