I thought I'd make a place for these because I think they're important.
I read this one this morning
They are important. Thank you, Frankie.
Added this to my Facebook page. As an English professor, I would welcome this articulate, thoughtful, and excellent writer into my class. How refreshing to read something so well imagined on a subject so important to us all by a young person. I am sorry for the suffering those who are on the front lines will endure, but I am pleased some of them are as accomplished as this student.
I'm following the blogger above on Twitter too @vegan_avb. His live account of the Occupy Oakland camp awaiting a raid is as thoughtful as the blog.
Naomi Wolf's account of her arrest was published in the Guardian.
In a world where the forces that perpetuate racial, social, political, gender, and economic inequality are beginning to fracture... In a world where repression and greed have been the rule for too long... In a world where ordinary people have access to communication in unprecedented numbers, we have come to a threshold.
Step over that threshold.
All over the world, people are beginning to understand there is power in numbers… That they need no longer stand aside and let the few and the wealthy control the destiny of all.
This is where you can begin to speak your mind. Say it aloud in a hundred different ways. Say it in your own voice, in your own way, "We are the 99%. And we will take control of our own destiny."
Join your voices to those who Occupy and overcome.
We also speak who only write… and sometimes even louder.
