PETITIONs, ETC

AVAAZ: The World vs Wall Street

To fellow citizens occupying Wall Street and peoples protesting across the world:

   We stand with you in this struggle for real democracy. Together we can end the capture and corruption of our governments by corporate and wealthy elites, and hold our politicians accountable to serve the public interest. We are united – the time for change has come!

Credo Action: Stand with Occupy Wall Street

“Not a single banker has gone to jail and yet over 1,000 protesters have been arrested. I stand with the protesters of Occupy Wall Street, and I demand that the NYPD respect their constitutional right to peaceful assembly.”


Get Money Out

It’s Time to GET MONEY OUT of politics

Bailouts. War. Unemployment. Our government is bought, and we’re angry. Now, we’re turning our anger into positive action. By signing this petition, you are joining our campaign to get money out of politics. Our politicians won’t do this. But we will. We will become an unrelenting, organized wave advocating a Constitutional amendment to get money out of politics.

As the petition grows, the wave grows.  Email, Facebook, Tweet — GET MONEY OUT.  We are using The Dylan Ratigan Show on MSNBC, and our ability to influence other media outlets as a platform to force this issue to the center of the 2012 elections. Join us.

From our former Washington Lobbyist, Jimmy Williams, here is a DRAFT of our Constitutional Amendment for public debate this fall:

“No person, corporation or business entity of any type, domestic or foreign, shall be allowed to contribute money, directly or indirectly, to any candidate for Federal office or to contribute money on behalf of or opposed to any type of campaign for Federal office. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, campaign contributions to candidates for Federal office shall not constitute speech of any kind as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution or any amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Congress shall set forth a federal holiday for the purposes of voting for candidates for Federal office.”

  1. Having a wee problem though!  It concerns “READ Occupy Wall Street LIST OF DEMANDS!  VOTE BEFORE OCT. 20th”

    My problem concerns the following statement by Coup Media Corps:

    First of all. There are no Official Demands of the Occupy Movement.  that being said, multiple factions of the movement have been assembling to discuss and vote on the output and message for the movement.  Below is a LIST OF PROPOSED “DEMANDS FOR CONGRESS” proposed by the website (occupywallstreet.org) which does not entirely represent the Occupy Wall Street General Assembly.  Below this list is a list of grievance that citizens have provided nationally and have voted on in solidarity of the movement. . . . .

    The point of this is:  Is this effort of http://www.OccupyWallStreet.org, an offspring of http://www.OccupyWallSt.org, in reality? Or, is it an upspring of the movement?  

    I think it’s very important to stick with the genuine movement here … http://www.occupywallst.org . . . unless IT, itself, condones or welcomes the websites, efforts thereby by others!  

    We need to be aware and avoid hijacking of this naissant movement by those who may or may not have the same interests or goals!  

  2. Thousands of Occupy Wall Street supporters gathered in Washington Square Park on Saturday afternoon for a General Assembly intended to spread the movement’s message. After several introductory speakers, the crowd lit up when an Egyptian activist named Mohammed Ezzeldin explained what he saw was the connection between Occupy Wall Street and the protests against Hosni Mubarak.

    “I am coming from there — from the Arab Spring. From the Arab Spring to the fall of Wall Street,” Ezzeldin said, his voice echoed by the crowd of thousands. “From Liberation Square to Washington Square, to the fall of Wall Street and market domination, and capitalist domination.”

    His passionate speech, which even included a reference to Karl Marx, made a startling comparison between what happened in Egypt earlier this year and what is now happening in the United States.

    “Many things separate us,” he said. “National borders. Homeland insecurities. Armies, corporations and police. They have their laws. They have their debts. And we have our revolution. We are the 99 percent.”

    Ezzeldin, a 28-year-old self-described “leftist activist” who is currently living in Jackson Heights and studying at the City University of New York’s Graduate Center, told HuffPost he was camped out in Tahrir Square just a few months ago and is now spending days in Zuccotti Park.

    “There are some differences,” he said, but he believes “any success for the struggle in the United States is helpful for the rest of the world.”

    Ezzeldin argued that making the protests more confrontational and bringing in labor unions will be critical for the success of the movement in the United States.

    “There is an illusion about freedom — about freedom of speech and freedom of organization in this country,” he observed, pointing to New York’s laws against tents and megaphones. “What I thought the image exported to the rest of the world… Well, it’s not completely false but there are many obstacles.”

    As for the NYPD’s response to demonstrations so far, Ezzeldin was philosophical. “Police is the police, in Egypt, in the United States. Police is the police. There is no good cops and bad cops, they are all cops,” he said.

  5. and politicize it have, apparently, commenced.

    Just read this from NY Times.

    Democrats Seek to Own ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Movement

    Occupation can lead to ownership, whether or not you want it.

    The spread of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement was met with initial hesitation in both the Democratic and Republican parties. That might be an appropriate response to any protests that aim themselves squarely at the establishment, particularly those with goals that are diverse and diffuse as the current protesters’ are.

    But a consensus is emerging among Democrats that the “Occupy” movement is worth tapping into, even helping along and joining with in some instances. . . . .

    RESIST, RESIST, RESIST!  

  6. to my e-list a few days ago.  I had intended doing a short diary on the subject matter, i.e., agent provocateurs,but I haven’t had the time.  So, I’ll just repeat the e-mail and the link here:

    As we inhale the growth of the “Wall Street Occupation” here, there and just about everywhere now, I have just read an article that bears being read by as many people as can be reached.  

    I think we’ve seen or knew of such actions (the Dem or Repug Conventions, for example), wherein “plants” have been introduced into the masses for the deliberate purpose of creating provocations in order to stir violence and then the ultimate down-grading of the “movement” resultantly.  We can only hope that that will not happen, but . . . . . . . !

    The article explains the many “signs” to look for in such instances and what we need to do in order to cover the backs of protestors right from the get-go in such event.

    Please read and spread around:
