A group of protesters affiliated with Occupy Wall Street plan to elect 876 “delegates” from around the country and hold a national “general assembly” in Philadelphia over the Fourth of July.

The 99% Declaration Working Group said in a statement Wednesday delegates would be elected online in early June from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. The delegates will meet in Philadelphia to draft and ratify a “petition for a redress of grievances.”

The group plans to convene during the week of July 2 and hold a news conference in front of Independence Hall on the Fourth of July.

spread across the country last year, with protesters denouncing

corporate excess and economic inequality.
