Steven Argue | "The struggle for justice doesn't end with me. This struggle is for all the Troy Davises who came before me and all the ones who will come after me. I'm in good spirits and I'm prayerful and at peace. But I will not stop fighting until I've taken my last breath." Troy Davis more... 6 Comments
Pryia Reddy via PMC-NYC | “Banks can make or break an economy or country. The people want their bailout,” said a local “rank and file” labor organizer named Frank Olsen. “We are hoping more unions, students, civilians, citizens will dare to come down to support, gather and stand together,” he said. “United we stand, divided we die.”... read more from Pryia Reddy more... 6 Comments

If protesters can force the cops to keep the barricades Monday, the resulting traffic could itself severely hobble Wall Street's operations!

Steven Argue | Bloomberg has left the prisoners behind to die at New York’s Rikers Island. Obama has left the people of the world to suffer climate change. We must fight!

Buffalo IMC | Go "here" to the Facebook group for the WNY bus.
All of us have a reason to go to New York City on September 17th: to occupy Wall Street. As of October 2008, over two million quality jobs were outsourced between 2004 and now; racial economic disparities mirrored policing disparities; as of 2001 we have a 700 plus strong (and expensive) network of military bases and a Global War on Terror; and pollution has firmly established itself as a cause of disease among poor communities. This one action will not resolve all of these problems at once yet, like Egypt it will be a political breakthrough moment, or like in Spain tens of thousands of citizens did begin a direct-democratic process to build a new movement for social justice. Where the earlier alter-globalization (a.k.a. anti-globalization) movement left off, we will pick up the slack with a flourishing new movement of movements.
The demands are numerous and over reddit, facebook, twitter, and via email, activists and disenfranchised people are having a virtual assembly 24 hours a day to cite each abuse of this economic system. In this conversation, every progressive measure that is neccesarry to fix our county- and our world is on the table: ending corporate personhood, community control of localized economies, collecting corporate back taxes, community banking, progressive taxation, and a new deal-style stimulus plan.

Florian Haushild and Roland Spitzer | A worldwide economic and financial order decays to a pure end-in-itself and no longer serves people. A system based on an ideology in which everything-even the person-becomes a product and money is represented as the measurement for all products is legitimated by apologists who trivialize the most blatant derailments of social life as "normal." more... 0 Comments
