With the exception of some rioting in Rome, the Occupation Movement continues to follow a peaceful path towards unity. This unification is not the result of a special networking arrangement. These protests are spontaneous, local uprisings, led in principle by our brothers and sisters in Zuccotti Park who have shown so much dedication and leadership. The police continue to be the aggressors. New video from New York can be found at this link:
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you. Erin Burnett on CNN declared Occupy Wall Street protesters were all ignorant, Bongo-drumming circus acts who do “not know what they want,” and then featured a video clip of herself triumphantly outwitting an apparently clueless protestor - by actually misrepresenting the facts concerning TARP and the American taxpayer. Burnett’s twitter response to a journalist’s question ‘What’s the purpose of Occupy Wall Street?’ was ‘Bang on the Bongos, smoke weed!’.
I for the most part have been living at Los Angeles City Hall for the past week. I am part of a movement that is world-wide, starting with the Occupation of Wall Street. The number of occupations worldwide have now surpassed four digits; the amount of people who have take action is amazing. Many are Occupying full-time, and that means we LIVE at the occupation we are camping there.
Democracy is not easy. It requires work and dedication. Most Americans believe that America is on the wrong track, and, for the most part, our representatives have not been representing us. Dissatisfied Americans might also agree that voting is not enough action to break out of this profound cycle of injustice and world-wide destruction. We the People are to blame for this mess: we have become utterly dependent on corporations and government for food, water and energy, and information. We have been giving away our representation to people who do not deserve it
Unite through Peace and Dignity! OCCUPY LA: INDIGENOUS COMMITTEE IN SOLIDARITY TOGETHER WITH ALL STRONGHOLDS. There a good few strong and positive Actions. Although the process is slowed down, we as the Committee Officals sign on to the High stakes of the Indigenous Peoples Committee Bill of Rights! As we can move through the process of going to City Hall we the Committee will continue to set forth the civic motions of 2 actions. We are very integrated in this positive process. There are the peripherals to any movement, and we recognize this.
It’s time to stop derailing the issue that has brought us here. These General Assemblies are meant to move us forward as a part of this 21st century People’s Awakening. The reason we are all here is in response and support of Occupy Wall Street. We are the 99%, fighting for our freedom against oppression.
We must not let the self-interests of a few impede the interest of the whole.
