OCCUPY DC, ongoing

After watching the uprisings in the Arab Spring, people in the United States are pissed off and taking back power over their own lives.  The occupation has spread to 245 cities across the country, including in Baltimore and DC.

New York:

5,000 people have taken to the streets in New York to Occupy Wallstreet since September 17.  In the Declaration of the Occupation of New York, the General Assembly proclaimed:

our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power.

Occupy Wall St. takes the Brooklyn Bridge (Oct 1), 700 arrested

Baltimore:

Baltimore began their occupation yesterday at McKeldin Fountain (the corner of Pratt and Light) and has been going strong!

Washington, DC:

Occupy DC began on Sunday at McPherson Square.  There are daily General Assemblies (open to everyone!) at 12PM & 6PM, as well as marches at 9AM & 5PM.

Tomorrow, a second occupation begins in DC as part of Stop the Machine! Create a New World!  This occupation marks the end of the first decade of the latest US invasion of Afghanistan.  They are meeting Thursday noon at Freedom Plaza (across from the white house) for a rally and concert.  OccupyDC will be joining together for this action!  Cmon y’all, lets get free!!

  1. This is not about politics; this is about humanity, their comfort, their prosperity, their freedom.
    To create a protest (a march) in numbers you need a great loud rhythm marching band with a lot of drums. The marching band would excite passerby pedestrians to participate. A marching band is a must for any protest march. Ideas and quotes for protest posters: “Politicians serve themselves and their greedy friends, not the people.” … “Collapse the Corrupt” … “End the Fed” … “Occupy WORLD FREEDOM ” … “FREEDOM is the demand, absolutely.” … “Donate Your Voice” … “Stop Campaign Money” … “We the People are Oppressed from your unconstitutional laws and ordinances” … “Your taxes are unfair and are destroying us.” … “You hire violent thugs and comi-cops to brutalize us” … “Tyrants are greedy, barbarous, and cruel.” … “No man’s life, liberty or property are safe while the Legislature is in session.” … “”A politician is just like a pickpocket; it’s almost impossible to get him to reform.” … “Do something; otherwise it won’t get done.” … “Corporate Vampires of the political parties” … “Politicians have the prerogative to lie whenever they want.” … “Government likes to observe us (spy on us) to protect their wrong doing” … “Politicians, like bombers, seldom see their victims.” … “Every time a politician says “a job was created!!!” by government spending, you know damn well at least TWO jobs (if not a lot more) were NOT created in the private sector as a result.” … “”Our current political system ensures that the worst will get on top and that the best will never even apply.” … “Politicians, like diapers, should be changed often.” … “Greed is always hungry.” … “Politicians sold ‘PROTECTION’; blackmail was the game; plunder was made legal!” … “”Politicians are leaches, mostly.” … “Power always attracts men of low morality.” … “The problem with politics is the money and power.” … “Why do we believe charming lying politicians?” … “Practical politics consists in ignoring facts.” … “Politicians don’t care about your privacy; only their own.” … “‘Solve’ and ‘problems’ are not in the Constitution.” … “”It is fascinating to watch politicians come up with ‘solutions’ to problems that are a direct result of their previous solutions.” …
