Who We Are.

We are the people, and we are beginning to rise up into the trembling reverberations of a spirit cascading amongst us,
filling lungs with air that breathes out the cries for justice into fires that burn down these walled streets that we were surrounded by
We are knocking forcefully at their foundations.
And they hear us.
We are passion and justice igniting flames of imaginations into beacons of light shining forth into the darkness
that we have been engulfed by for far too long
And we are shouting out a call to action declaring to the rest of the world loudly with fierce voices:
We are awakening from our slumber.
And we will not rest until we create together a liberation of all people.
We hold the signs of the times in our hands, filling our cities across this land
with a spirit of non-violence echoing louder than any war across the sea could ever try to silence,
We have had enough and the violence that attaches itself to our names is no longer acceptable amongst us.
We are Rising up.
We are the creativity that has been birthed from the spirit of our communities
that is beginning to make ripples across the endless sound waves of their messages,
the false advertising of their programs, their attempts at programming through media,
The lies of their media through misinformation, we are creating our own information,
and we are shattering the screens of the false American narrative with the rising of
New story tellers, creating a new mythology for the people to embrace.
Through #hashtags and trending topics that rise as we rise.
We are a manifestation of the imagination of the people,
coupled with a force of bravery ready to span the chasms of the time it will take to begin moving,
We are rooting deep into the public spaces we occupy,
communing with the trees as they show us what it means to stand firm.
Teaching each other the lessons we have learned in how to be strong.
Building together new ways amongst us to help us Hold our Ground.
For we are a people that will NOT BE MOVED.
And as I see the spirit unfold across our nation,
See the faces of the people as the books we are writing
listen to the twitter of our heartbeat,
witness the river of live streams baptize us in the spirit of co-operation
I am certain that the narrative will arise as we continue to engage in the peaceful awakening of our people
We are Occupistas!
Let us continue to move forward, let us remember who we are by retelling our stories,
Sharing our personal narratives with each other in honest vulnerability and strength in solitude.
Let us not forget to move forward boldly in making a path for who we want to become
While imagining the world that we are working together to create.
For together we are unstoppable, and with our imaginations, a whole new world is possible.
We are those who believe.
We are the 99%

Is the revolution here?

In mid July, the magazine Adbusters, which I have been reading on and off over the last 5 years, called for a time of action.  They challenged readers, activists, designers, creators, and a new generation of people to come together and begin a revoolution.  On Septemeber 17th, a couple doze or so people began occupying Wall Street at Zucotti Park near Wall Street.  They began gathering under the banner of protesting against capitalistic greed that has been at the center of our recession, our loss of democracy, jobs being sent abroad, and the student loan debt that so many have been stuck with, while politicians are being bought out by bailed out banksters.

From the beginning, this movement has had the make-up of adbusters type thinking and thought at its center.  The voice of the people is beginning to be heard, and the movement is on the brink of awakening the global consciousness that lies dormant in the heart of so many people.  In the middle of a recession and economic downfall, so many young people are becoming disenchanted with the American Dream.  People are beginning to recognize the farce that exists in the so-called rules of the game.  It used to be that America represented the “Land of Opportunity” and the place where people can climb the ladder and find their dreams.  Slowly, this dream has become a nightmare, as the last three decades represent a slow build of capitalistic corporations slowly building their empires, while most of the public is dazed into a zombie like trance purchasing all the goods they put out.  This is no-longer acceptable to the general public and it looks like the #occupywallstreet movement, aided by the use of technology, social media such as twitter and facebook is beginning to spread the word across the nation, and quickly people are starting to pay attention.  It seems like many other cities are already beginning to join the cause and stand in solidarity with OccupyWallStreet.

Pay attention in the coming weeks as this movement grows and begins to gain the attention of a national media and see how it begins to sweep up the masses.  I have a feeling that this is going to be something big, something that we will be telling our grandkids about, the movement that shook up the whole world and brought about a new way of living.  I can tell from the spirit of the people and the message that is rising that the power of the people is quickly beginning to be realized amongst us.  Stay tuned, it is still early, but we are creating our own media, we are standing up for ourselves against the authorities, and we have reached a point where we have had enough.  The stirrings of revolution are among us, listen carefully and you may be able to hear the call. Rise UP
