Occupy Wall Street Day 12 – Poised To Take Off. Dave Johnson, Campaign for America’s Future: “This is what happens when people have had it. The ‘Occupy Wall Street‘ crowd has been there for almost 2 weeks, camping out, saying they’re fed up and are going to stay until American democracy is restored”: here.

Chris Hedges, Truthdig: “There are no excuses left. Either you join the revolt taking place on Wall Street and in the financial districts of other cities across the country or you stand on the wrong side of history. Either you obstruct, in the only form left to us, which is civil disobedience, the plundering by the criminal class on Wall Street and accelerated destruction of the ecosystem that sustains the human species, or become the passive enabler of a monstrous evil. Either you taste, feel and smell the intoxication of freedom and revolt or sink into the miasma of despair and apathy. Either you are a rebel or a slave”: here.

    We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we’re working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent. Brought to you by the people who occupy wall street. Why will YOU occupy?

    Raising the voice of protest
    Most important, the occupation movement has to develop a strategy of moving from protest to tapping into the social power that only working class action can provide. The all-out occupation of the Capitol in Wisconsin, after all, was made possible by teachers’ sickouts that shut down most of the state’s schools for several days. That’s why it’s so important that one of New York City’s most important unions, Transport Workers Union Local 100, which represents bus and subway workers, has endorsed Occupy Wall Street.
