#Goldman Sachs has 73 offices worldwide

And we're going to have some fun in front of every one of them!

Hey all you hacktivists, jammers and lone wolfs out there,

This Thursday, the people most responsible for the economic crisis we’re all suffering through will gather at 222 South Main Street in Salt Lake City, Utah for the annual Goldman Sachs shareholder meeting. They will be laughing behind closed doors rather than rotting in federal prison.

The poster above is the opening shot in a protracted people’s meme war against Goldman.

Print out a few b&w versions and over the next few days stick them up on ATMs, megabank windows and other appropriate places you’re walking by.

Let’s decorate the world with CEO Lloyd Blankfein’s maniacal laugh!

And then on Thursday, meet up at your nearest Goldman Sachs branch. Find locations here.

The moment is ripe for us to harness the raw creativity of leaderless horizontalism and send a clear message to the Exxons, Pfizers, Monsantos, Haliburtons, JPMorgans and Goldmans of the world—that from now on they will pay a heavy price for any betrayal of the public trust.

for the wild,

Culture Jammers HQ

Catch up on the gameplay thus far, here.

Print this poster and plaster it all over the world!

Before Occupy Wall Street, I had no sense of political consciousness; I left all the contradictions & problematic aspects of neoliberal capitalism alone. I didn't acknowledge them. I didn't think about them. On a conscious level, I was totally unaware of them.

OWS revolutionized my political consciousness and I wasn't the only one. That was what made it powerful. That was what made it scary. It wasn't ever going to be the vehicle to in-and-of-itself destroy capitalism, or fix the system or anything else. It created awareness, it planted seeds. Some of those seeds are just sprouting, others are still laying dorment. Regardless, Spring will come.

This little sapling has barely gotten started, and again, I'm not the only one. There are many of us with schemes and projects and plans to project a sense of social-consciousness and political awareness, to fight exploitation and create awareness and without OWS who knows whether I would have ever gotten started down this path at all. The same could be said for innumerable others.

I imagine revolution seemed impossible until it didn't in every historic revolution to date. We're fighting so that one day the world won't seem so terrible and you (I hope) will no longer feel that terrible sense of nihilism, dismissiveness & self-defeatedness which you are very clearly projecting.

May 23 is the shareholder meeting in SLC.

For a newcomer to all this, such as myself, it would be helpful to have
a short narrative on what Goldman has done to deserve our wrath. I know
it exists, I just have not had time to fully inform myself, and would greatly
appreciate a bit more content on this matter.

I disagree. You are neglecting the idea of people doing things because they enjoy them. One quick example: Wikipedia - it's non profit, like it or not, but it's a popular and immensely useful website run largely by volunteers. Please try again.
