WSQT Direct Action Radio 90.5 in DC | WSQT Direct Action radio's October 14 broadcast in DC focussed on Occupy Wall Street, Occupy DC, and Stop the Machine. The outrageous attempt by Brookfield Properties to evict OWS did not stand, so at WSQT we ran this audio story to celebrate and educate our listeners.
Harsha Walia | What I outline below are not criticisms of the Occupy movement. I am inspired that the dynamic of the movement thus far has been organic, so that all those who choose to participate are collectively responsible for its evolution and development. To all those participating -- I offer my deepest gratitude and respect. I am writing today with Grace Lee Boggs on the forefront of my mind: "The coming struggle is a political struggle to take political power out of the hands of the few and put it into the hands of the many. But in order to get this power into the hands of the many, it will be necessary for the many not only to fight the powerful few but to fight and clash among themselves as well." This may sound dramatic and counter-productive, but I find it a poignant reminder that, in our state of elation, we cannot underestimate the difficult terrain ahead and I look forward to the processes that will further these conversations. more... 0 Comments

Senator Bernie Sanders and Robert Reich | Solidarity, social justice and sharing open doors while tax cuts for the super-rich only lead to exploding inequality. double standards and cynicism. Access could replace excess. The empire could be replaced by the republic.
anonymous | The conflict raging across our country has spread beyond all preceding expectations. As we type, streets are being barricaded and the political system is being challenged from New York to LA and a hundred cities in-between. The explosion of civil disobedience has not been seen for decades and we may be experiencing one of the most democratic struggle in the history of Western social movements. With the great popular power we now hold, the government is revealing the unwritten rules that govern our society, freedom is the rule of thumb, that is, freedom exists in our context up until we hit the boundaries of passive protesting and begin to intervene in the every day avenues of commercial life. And then, off with the velvet gloves and our with the iron fist. Hence, the hundreds of arrests filling the jails across America, not for anti-social behavior that we’ve come to expect in our society, but for deviant political behavior which truly threatens the rich. more... 0 Comments

Michael Letwin, NYCLAW | “My name is X. I am Egyptian and American. What the Middle East has shown is that when people come together for one cause, they are able to have an impact and effect change. Part of the Arab revolution, with the youth, there was a great momentum of youth. I feel that has mobilized the world and brought globalization to a whole new world were ideals and values are starting to take over instead of corporations and other things. So, I feel that there is a transfer of energy, positive energy and I hope the momentum continues.“ more... 2 Comments

Michael Letwin, NYCLAW | [From The Occupied Wall Street Journal] "What is occurring on Wall Street right now is remarkable. For over two weeks, in the great cathedral of capitalism, the dispossessed have liberated territory from the financial overlords and their police army. They have created a unique opportunity to peacefully shift the tides of history like the sit-down strikes of the 1930s, the civil rights movement of the 1960s and the democratic uprisings across the Arab world and Europe today." more... 0 Comments

Hon. Cynthia McKinney by Peoples MEDIA Center | Former US Presidential candidate and Georgia's Congresswoman McKinney ... "We must hone the skill of discernment. We must not give our vote to just anybody to occupy these positions of power. We must not allow "posers" to represent us. Posers are those who wear the jackets of authority, who are put in positions of power by us, but who do not engage in the artful use of that power on our behalf. Discerning who is friend and who is poser has been difficult. But, is being made more possible by the arrogance now of those who do not have the interests of the people at heart. They seem not to care that their "neanderthal" is showing...." more... 0 CommentsPage 121 | Page 119
