Occupy Wall Street

It seems almost surreal that the most important thing that is going on in the world right now began right here in beautiful Vancouver British Columbia.

It began with Adbusters:

The movement is called “Occupy Wall Street.”

Their slogan is “We are the 99%.”

Here’s what the 1% would have you believe:

Two weeks earlier 1252 protestors were arrested in front of the White House including James Hansen – head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City.

It took another 700 arrests and a bunch of police brutality footage to draw in any serious media coverage.

Jessie Ventura weighed in:

A Republican candidate for president weighed in:

He says,

“If you’re not millionaire blame yourself.”

It’s about 9 minutes and 30 seconds in:

Get involved.

We are the 99%.

After all, we occupied Wall St. last year for similar reasons.

    Put simply, the whole movement needs to be centered on the fact, that in a democracy the people are in charge. Government officials need to be reminded that they are not our RULERS but our SERVANTS.
