Occupy the Planet
Occupy Wall Street is now on day 15 as today begins Occupy Asheville. It is an amazing time in history that we find ourselves. We watch on TV as, night after night, the cable news shows show Egyptians rising against their oppressive regime, the "rebels" in Libya fighting Ghaddafi. Now after 2 weeks of Occupy Wall Street, MSNBC is finally showing coverage of Occupy Wall Street. I do not use the word "report" as even Chris Hayes' "live" report from New York last night, he said something along the lines of 'you see the typical drum circle, free hugs, etc'. After his coverage, @LastWord Tweeted 'this was recorded earlier'.
NO ONE is reporting on the actual number of cities participating in this movement. OccupyTogether.org currently lists 101 cities participating in the US and 20 International cities. On Twitter there are many feeling that this is the start of a #GlobalRevolution, an American Autumn to respond to the Arab Spring. Is this what the Mayans were predicting in 2012? A global rising in conscience? Where the world citizens are rising up against their global masters and saying ENOUGH! I do not want to buy the bullshit you are peddling! I will not longer be a consumer. I am a citizen of the world and I am responsible for the atrocities committed in the name of global financial domination and I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!
