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