Occupy Everything!

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

With America’s invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, and Israel’s continued expansion into Palestinian land, the term ‘occupation’ has been getting a bad rap. But now the term synonymous with war and oppression is fast becoming the rallying cry for a new North American uprising.

It started in New York, as hundreds of activists braved police brutality to Occupy Wall St. Now in their third week, support and publicity has never been greater, with new non-violent civil disobedience sprouting up all across the continent.

In fact, if you do a search for “occupy” plus the name of any major city, you are likely to get a hit. If not, there’s always the Occupy Together site for finding events close to you.

Not to be out-demonstrated by the general public , college students have a walkout planned for tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12 pm. Great to see the next generation of leaders getting involved!

Do you feel angst towards the ineffectual government? Sick of corporations making insane profits while you struggle to make ends meet? Tired of bankers and their schemes to rob trillions from the public?

Well, don’t suffer in silence anymore! Take to the streets and add your voice to the movement. Be an active part of the 99%. With so many protests popping up, it’s never been easier to exercise your democratic rights.
