"I'll believe a corporation is a person when Texas executes one."
This American "Empire" is Obstacle to Peace and Justice Here and Abroad
The October 2011 Movement commits to occupying Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. to end US War(s) and Exploitation.
Starting today the October 2011 Movement -- a fusion of peace, social justice, environmental, student, and immigrant rights organizations -- takes to the street to promote solidarity with all pro-peace uprisings around the world.
We will PEACEFULLY (nonviolently) resist the corporate machine until our national resources are divested from war and exploitation and reinvested in meeting human needs and environmental protections. This is as much about Mother Earth as the life thriving on this planet.
October 2011 intends to bring together Americans concerned about economic injustices, US militarism, and corporate environmental destruction. Let's join in ending concentrated "military-industrial complex" (government-corporate) power. This is a participatory democracy. Power to the people who rules themselves and have the chance to elect actual representatives.
Inspired by the courageous, nonviolent uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, Greece, Spain, Libya, Madison, Wall Street, and elsewhere, people in the United States are coming together to form the October2011 Movement. (It was planned long before Occupy Wall Street took to the streets of New York, LA, SF, Boston, Seattle, and elsewhere).
- Here you go, Carter. Stop talking and start walking.
