Sat. Sept 17: Occupy Wall St
“Like cars, TVs and barrels of oil, our lives are commodities to be bought and sold on the open market amid the culture of ruthlessness and desperation that has arisen to accommodate it. … It is the philosophy of growth for the sake of growth, the same ideology that drives a cancer cell. … Of course, nothing can expand forever. The second law of thermodynamics tell us this much at least. But that doesn’t mean the market won’t try. …
The people coming to Wall Street on September 17 come for a variety of reasons, but what unites them all is the opposition to the principle that has come to dominate not only our economic lives but our entire lives: profit over and above all else. … It is indicative of a deep spiritual sickness that has gripped civilization, a sickness that drives the vast deprivation, oppression and despoliation that has come to cover the world.”
OCCUPY WALL ST’S MISSION—
On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people to flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months.
See you there?
