from students , to the unemployed to those who work dead end jobs to make ends meet. It’s to commemorate the second month of Occupy Wall St. Ive been wanting to occupy for ever but so much hw I needed to get to every time I wanted to occupy. Some wouldn’t want to occupy because they fear getting pepper sprayed or beaten up or what ever the excuse is and personally I hope everyone occupys . It can be for a day a week or when ever you have the time
Still fear occupying? I guess your job is worth while and you can pay for your tuition easy as pie, and you are reassured a stellar job the moment you walk out with your diploma in one hand while another hand reachesout to you with “dream” written on it as you also reach towards it to grab it and a spark occurs. And I am sure you live the fabulous life in your apt that is less than 599 (for a1 bedroom) a month without any hidden fees and all the other bills can be paid in a snap, while you dine on a full elite plate….. I can go on with this. But if your job can do all this , still occupy so others can live your life too.
EVERYONE SHOULD MARCH OUT , if a 84 year woman can protest and get pepper sprayed in the process because she too has realized this country is beyond FUCKED UP , you have no true excuse.
Im sure if you want children, you would want them to succeed too but if you don’t want to occupy, i guess YOU don’t mind them working at starbucks because they can’t find a real fucking job in the richest nation in the world.
People say there isn’t a list of demands, umm seriously everyone knows what needs to be changed, we literally just created this movement and it doesn’t take a day to make change, no it takes time and in due time OUR LIST OF DEMANDS WILL BE MADE.
to end this rant
in conclusion we all need to take action, EVERYONE I HAVE SEEN IN THESE PHOTOS REPRESENTS US ALL (the elderly , the sick, the disabled, the vets , the poor and everything in between) . How is it fair that in other nations they get free health care and education from K-18(college included) and when economic disparity occurs they unite in hoards of 300,000people (while we only hoard 10000 or so) and while we should remain non violent(until that climaxing turning point which I fear is near) , in other nations they fought back and ….won their rights.
WAKE UP this is OUR FUCKING FUTURE and I hate the pity remarks of why people can’t occupy yes I contradict myself but I seriously need to raise my grades up so I can get perks for myself and my field at my school which is SVA (if curious I am an illustrator 2013 and I plan on going for my masters) but now I can finally join the movement and I hope to join many more general assemblies. make sure you vote, and VOTE FOR THE RIGHT PERSON and research too
