October 15: Unite for Global Change!

Our people’s democracy movement is about to get three mighty boosts:

  • On October 6, a few thousand of us will swarm the capital and #OCCUPYDC. Find out the plan at october2011.org
  • On October 15th, the movement goes global … check it out at 15october.net

On October 15th people from all over the world will take to the streets and squares. From America to Asia, from Africa to Europe, people are rising up to claim their rights and demand a true democracy. Now it is time for all of us to join in a global non violent protest.

The ruling powers work for the benefit of just a few, ignoring the will of the vast majority and the human and environmental price we all have to pay. This intolerable situation must end.

United in one voice, we will let politicians, and the financial elites they serve, know it is up to us, the people, to decide our future.

We are not goods in the hands of politicians and bankers who do not represent us.

On October 15th, we will meet on the streets to initiate the global change we want. We will peacefully demonstrate, talk and organize until we make it happen.

It’s time for us to unite. It’s time for them to listen.

People of the world, rise up on October 15th!

Then, on November 3 and 4, we have something special in mind for when the G20 leaders meet in France.

    “We are anonymous.
    We are legion.
    We do not forgive.
    We do not forget.
    Expect us.”

    This is much too silly, grazing the pathological radicalism, disconnected from the reality of the HumanHumus.

    I am reminded of my times as a Maoist. It is easy to recognize the manipulations behind a propaganda. Maoism, as all the radicalisms, was a pathology of power.

    We, the people, are the system, and we are not anonymous, we have a face.

    Starving people in Africa have faces. Portuguese that are unemployed and hungry have faces.

    We are not anonymous and we have not alienated our autonomy in someone or something that is anonymous, that we do not know what it is.

    It is easy to be anonymous, harder it is to demand dignity with our faces uncovered.

    About revolution, the system is us, the institutions are us, the agents are us, the markets are us, the responsibility is ours, the revolution must be in us.

    When the altruistic practices become an effective permanence, we can speak of a revolution, when the dignity ceases to be just a postulate to become a generalized effective practice, we can speak of a revolution, when the tolerance and cooperation replace the Darwinian competition, we can speak of a revolution, until then, any social revolution will only be the replacement of a predatory power by other predatory powers.

    We’re marching here in Arkansas on October 15th…I’ve heard most other states in the US are doing the same.

      How can we heal this nation without attempting to make amends to Native Americans? We have this glorious country if we hadn’t taken this land, their lives and ways of life from them. Continuing to ignore them is part of what is making so many people miserable, in my opinion.
