We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around not only these United States but the world as we unite to demand equal representation regardless of personal net worth. Every American citizen and human being is important and we believe the every human being has the right to the basic needs of life in the 21st century. We have the capacity to provide the bare essentials and it is the responsibility and role of our government to provide education, infrastructure, healthcare, and security for the common good and productivity of all of our citizens not just those who are wealthy enough to purchase politicians or legislation.
A healthy, educated, and productive population is our goal and it has become clear those in power do not want the 99% to become or remain engaged, informed, and constructive. Our thoughts and ideas are as diverse as the individuals that are a part of the occupation but the common ground for all of us is the need to separate the control of corporations and our democracy so Congress can accomplish more than reaffirming that “In God We Trust” is our country’s motto. These are extremely challenging times and the people of this country are demanding that the people in office get a grip on the facts and reality and get to work on reasonable common sense solutions that benefit our entire population not just “Job Creators”. Despite the raids, brutality, being dismissed as “tree hugging hippies playing their drums”, rule manipulation by elected officials, and voter suppression efforts; the people informed, united, and dedicated to peaceful and non violent social progress will never be defeated.
