The NDAA Passed – where where you?? Occupy Earth – this is a priority…

Well, we went out there to the occupy SF raleigh, was a scene as usual, sisters, brothers out on the streets peacefully protesting against the treatment of the majority, us, by the selfish, greedy 1% that don’t care about anything other than themselves and their power and monetary gain. I was saddened that on today, on “Bill of Rights” Day – congress was able to pass the NDAA – indefinite detention without trial. You think Guantanamo was bad, this is Guantanamo on a worldwide stage, and President Obama looks like … Continued

Indefinite detention for U.S. citizens – We need to act now – this threatens us all.

This is of the up most important – Congress is trying to put though a bill that will allow government, and our military, to detain U.S. citizens INDEFINITELY WITHOUT TRAIL.  Please at the least spread this around – sign the petition, call congress and the senate. https://secure.aclu.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=3897&s_subsrc=SEM_Google_search-indefinite-detention_Indefinite-detention_indefinite%20detention%20obama_p_9302629342 And if you can get to Occupy Oakland, please make banners & boards speaking out against this, demanding that we remain a democracy.  This new bill, if it goes through and isn’t veto’d, threatens us all, it’s so broad, any one of us … Continued

Decolonize Oakland: Creating a More Radical Movement

Decolonize Oakland: Creating a More Radical Movement       Oakland is the ancestral homeland of the Chochenyo Ohlone, an indigenous community that has no collective territory of their own and no recognized legal status or rights.   As detailed in The Memorandum of Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples, which the General Assembly passed with 97% support on 28 October 2011, the Chochenyo Ohlone have survived a brutal colonial history and ongoing occupation, which makes them strong members, allies, leaders, and guides to the movement of the 99%.  In passing that memorandum … Continued

A Beginners Guide to ‘Occupy’ on Vimeo

I found this video, filmed at the Occupy Bristol encampment in the UK, to be very well done. It provides clarification of our common purpose and bond to both beginners and to original occupiers who may be getting tired and cold and sometimes disheartened. I hope for renewed strength to be sent your way through the focus of our collective energy! We APPRECIATE THE HECK OUTTA YOU!!!!! Peace -Indigo   4855

GLOBAL GENERAL STRIKE & MASS DAY OF ACTION – NOVEMBER 2

I believe that Oakland’s General Strike & Mass Day of Action on November 2 ought to go global to show solidarity with our Occupy brothers and sisters of Oakland. The Occupy LA is preparing for a Bank Transfer Day on November 5. This ought to go global too. Do not get arrested! If an occupation is forced to move by law inforcement, why not pick another strategic location; the mountain top removal company, Masi (spelling?) closed their union worker plants in one city and openned another in a different location … Continued
