On 17 September, anarchists who led the Occupy Wall Street movement are calling people around the world to Occupy Silicon Valley. The aim is to take back the internet and challenge the rising power and corporate greed of big tech multinationals.
“We the people”

A press release from Adbusters, who are behind the movement states:

On September 17th, we take back control of our lives and minds. We flip the power balance. For one day, we make the internet ours again.

Because as Adbusters’ editor-in-chief Kalle Lasn explained:

"Our aim is to shut down Big Tech for a day… We the people – not you – rule the internet."

The action is planned seven years after the Occupy movement spread globally to protest against economic inequality. Now the aim is to create an “ambitious, global blowback” against “Big Tech’s four most powerful corporations”. Because they “dominate so much of our social, political, and emotional lives”.
