Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The founding fathers, or as I’d like to call the “original occupiers”, had the freshness of oppression and tyranny on their minds and some may have had blood on their hands, when they thought this first amendment up. That fact that they put it first is the most important thing to notice. They looked at how the king controlled them and tried to isolate them to keep them under that control. So they first put in the fact that religion cannot be part of a free government because it allows for a leader to use the religion of choice to help control the populace. They put that we need free speech because we need to be able to discuss things like corrupt bankers and greedy politicians. They did not have that freedom because the British troops were all around their cities. Now a days we have our “skittles” thanks to the CCA Empire. This, freedom of speech, inherently involves the freedom of expression of that speech in any form. From a poster to a letter to congress or Simply Writing in chalk! We now move to the freedom of the press. These original occupiers wanted to release papers and pamphlets throughout the colonies calling for people to rise up and fight with them in this forthcoming battle, they said stuff like no taxation without representation or get out of your farms and hit the town centers. They realized along with free speech people need to be able to share ideas to get things done. Now adays our pamphlets say Banks got bailed out we got sold out and get off Facebook and hit the streets! And with this freedom of the press comes the live streamers! This revolution will not be televised it will be on live streams! Our press the peoples press is now the internet social media sites and Live streams. Thank you all for doing what u do to help without u a lot of people wouldn’t be able to get the truth. Then, the original occupiers knew that with all this speech and sharing of ideas there would come a moment when people would finally leave the safety of their homes and gather together to petition the government for a redress of grievances. For the original occupiers that day came on July 4th, 1776, and for our generation that day has passed on Sept. 17, 2011!! We have begun our occupation of our own country like our original occupiers gave us the rights to do so! We have met together spoke out and screamed rage fully. We have formed our lines of media and of press we have exercised all our free speech rights and freedom of expression rights. And how have we been met? With tear gas and rubber bullets! THIS isn’t about chalk! It is to show the world that America the land of the free and the home of the brave ceased to exist a while ago. When the original occupiers realized they needed to wake people up and Paul Ravere road threw the countryside screaming“Here comes the British!” it awakened a mass of people. Together with Thomas Paine’s' writings of how corrupt the system had become and a list of events it all led to Millions to wake up and begin the process of revolution! SO today we don’t ride through the country side, Monsanto already destroyed that shit, instead we come with chalk! We come to yell to the rest of America that the BRITISH ARE COMING, The CCA is coming the POLICE STATE IS HERE, monsantos and libors and banks and the Federal Reserve and the house and the senate and the executive branch and judicial branch and the city officials and the mainstream media ARE ALL COMING. We are here to yell all of that at the millions who have yet to wake up, and we are not here with horses WE ARE HERE WITH CHALK!!!
A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
It should be no surprise that the second amendment they put was the right to bear arms for a militia to fight tyranny because after they finished talking and discussing and meeting together and after they got oppressed at every stage of their occupation they eventually took arms. Now we all send our prayers and condolences to the people being killed by maniacs for stupid reasons and we are saddened to see it all get politicized into a fight over the second amendment. But one thing to take form that is They have already destroyed the first amendment and are attacking it every day including rite now at this chalk walk, now they are working on getting the second one which they will undoubtedly succeed at, so when that day comes and they decided to send the military into our cities thanks to the NDAA and none of us have guns who do u think will defend us? Its going to be the very same people who stand opposing this chalk walk today, the police, it’s going to be the street gangs and all the people we so despise at this moment for making this world a horrible place. Those people will come to our defense when the time is granted. So for that purpose we must find love for everyone even the police who are so confused at this time. We must keep the peace and keep the world watching as they maliciously attack us…..The PEACEFUL.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The last part is the most important. Because we have granted them are grievances. It is a list well over 100 items but that should not be surprising because the declaration has 25 lines of grievances so at the rate of inflation and corruption over the past 200 years it should not be surprising when we see over 100 grievances! To all the nay Sayers who go Oh the occupy movement is too scattered and needs to be more focused! What the hell do they want us to do... focus on 1 thing and leave out the other 99!!!! I don’t think so. They shouldn’t say we are scared or confused they should say DAMN there’s actually that much shit wrong with OUR country!!! The powers not delegated to the government by the constitution shall fall to the states OR THE PEOPLE!!! I’d like to take the original occupiers up on that offer! Power lies with the PEOPLE with us!
Then after they listed their list of grievances this was stated-
“In every stage of these Oppressions We have petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
The executive branch has failed us the congress has failed us the judges have failed us our city mayors have failed us. They all fit the definition of Tyrant. We must follow Iceland and our original occupiers and not simply vote in mass or get choose the lessor of two evils NO! We must fire the entire government. It is our right to do that. So it’s not about chalk!! It’s about us telling the government YOU’RE FIRED!
In the declaration of independence it’s also stated
“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness”
Our safety and happiness is at stake. If you doubt this idea watch how we occupiers are oppressed and wake up. The original occupiers had no idea how corrupted this country would become no idea what we’d be up against. No idea it would be us fighting our own government for freedom rather than the British. But they did know that it was all a real possibility and they would leave a few open lines of options just in case we eventually had to have a second occupation. A second American revolution. They knew sept. 17 was going to happen and left us a declaration and a constitution to help protect us and give us a path to begin on. This bill of rights is also a chance for us to not have to suffer the same violence as the original occupiers. These amendments give us a chance to not have to bear arms. So it’s not about CHALK, this is about showing the country this first amendment is our last stand before all our revolution. People listen to the movement and read through the chalk!
They ended the declaration of independence with this line and then only 56 people signed it-
“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
56 people signed this and said I’ll put my life on the line for the guy next to me no matter who he is. I’ll put all the possessions I own on the line for the guys standing next to me. 56 people! They knew what they were up against they knew what they faced and they put their necks on the line because they saw the importance of stopping the tyrannical King who oppressed them. It didn’t take a million signatures on change.org or a million people to show up at the white house or 40 million people to go vote. It took 56 people to start it all. That is SOLIDARITY! That is what we need at our present moment. We all have our own reasons for being here, we all have ideologies and beliefs on what should be the outcome of all this, but those things are all our OWN. That is not solidarity. We need to face up to the fact that we are not here for all those Selfish things… NO we are here for each other! We are here for the next person in line, we are here for the people losing their homes, for the students in debt we are here for the soldiers who die uselessly, we are here for the cops who haven’t been awakened to the reality of their situation that one day an order will come to use Live ammo on us, we are here for the people watching the live streams and reading blogs and posting news articles and keeping track of our movement, we are here for the people blinded by the Olympics and tonight decided to stay home and watch badminton instead of showing up and showing support, we are here for all those people. NOT OURSELVES. So to all the people we are here for, the ones who have not awaken to the reality that has become of America,
WE STAND IN SOLIDARITY! WE WILL CONTINUE TO STAND UNTIL WE ARE NO LONGER NEEDED TO. This is not about chalk! This is about a last stand against a failing government and a group of oppressive Corporations who run that government!
We came with tents, they tore them down, we came with signs and marches and general strikes, they demonized us and shot at us with tear gas and rubber bullets, they pepper sprayed us, they locked us up and tried to silence us and turn the people against us by calling us hippies and anarchist. They tried every means to destroy us. But here,todayWEcome with chalk. We come here to say this is the last stand.
SOLIDARITY FOREVER, THANK YOU EVERYONE!
