PETITIONs, ETC

WE the People: petition the obama administration to: Make Bribing Politicians Illegal

No corporation should be allowed to give campaign contributions to any politician or political party that is involved in writing or voting on legislation that affects them or the industry they profit from.

In any other scenario giving money to people who are supposed to be regulating something you are doing is considered bribery. If a sports team gives money to the referee before their game – its a bribe. If a defendant gives money to a judge or jury member before his trial – its a bribe. If a criminal gives money to a police officer – its a bribe.

Politics should be no different. Corporations giving millions of dollars to politicians could not create a more clear conflict of interest in policy making – ITS A BRIBE. If the Administration disagrees we would love to hear why.

Change.org: NYC Mayor: Stand with Occupy Wall Street

Not a single banker has gone to jail for crimes that led to the financial meltdown. But now over 1,000 protesters have been arrested in the inspiring Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City.

Tell Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Kelly: Respect the Occupy Wall Street protesters’ constitutional right to peaceful assembly.

The occupation of Wall Street has inspired a nationwide movement in the spirit of Wisconsin.

But there has been a powerful backlash against peaceful protesters who are using both their right to public assembly and tactics of nonviolent civil disobedience to call attention to the fact that our government has bailed out the wealthiest Americans but has done little to help middle and working class Americans who have lost their jobs and had their homes foreclosed on.

The protest is building momentum with a huge solidarity march today that CREDO and Other 98% members, progressive organizations and labor are joining. However the very existence of Occupy Wall Street could be endangered by strongarm NYPD tactics aimed at intimidating protesters and ending their three week stand against the big Wall Street banks.

Tell Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Kelly: Respect the Occupy Wall Street protesters’ constitutional right to peaceful assembly.

Change.org: Occupy Wall Street: Occupy Together

We, the 99%, are fed up with our elected officials doing nothing to curb corruption and allowing, if not assisting, in the degradation of our rights, freedoms and liberties as not just citizens of the United States of America, but citizens of the Planet Earth.

We won’t stand for intimidation and brutality that is taking place against these protesters. We support them, support their cause, and support their actions.

Eric Grieco: Tell Congress: We need jobs, not cuts!

Speaker John Boehner:

We stand with the 99%.

We’re fed up with Wall Street greed and Washington inaction.  We need jobs, not cuts, and policies that benefit 99% of Americans instead of only the top 1%.

Congress needs to work to build an economy that works for all of us, not just the richest.  As a first step to putting America back to work, Congress should pass the American Jobs Act immediately — no later than by the Thanksgiving Recess.  And pay for it by taxing Wall Street speculation.

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.”

***NOTE***

CoupMediaCorps (NOT affiliated in any way with www.occupywallst.org), has a List of Demands, entitled, “Occupy Wall Street – Official Demands” (the language is misleading) fashioned after suggestions made to the occupywallst.org forum page.  Read the List of Demands carefully and VOTE on each, if you so wish, while bearing in mind that THESE ARE NOT OFFICIAL DEMANDS, nor have any been STATED by www.occupywallst.org.

READ CoupMedia’s LIST OF PROPOSED “DEMANDS FOR CONGRESS” &VOTE BEFORE OCT. 20th

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.

They are in process of making this list. THEY WANT YOUR INPUT (YOU as in EVERYbody) There are instructions to give your opinion/additions/suggestions to this. There is a team of lawyers working on this (pro-bono) & tweaking this ALL the time.   GO! make your voice heard!!
