ACT UP Commemorates 25th Anniversary
Saturday, March 24, marks 25 years since the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) held its first action. The group demonstrated on Wall Street in New York City to demand greater access to HIV treatment. To commemorate that action, ACT UP will stage an action, in cooperation with Occupy Wall Street, on Wednesday, April 25. “ACT UP + Occupy To End The AIDS Crisis” will demand a “Robin Hood” tax on financial transactions to increase HIV/AIDS funding.
