——————-

There are many relevant events happening every day! And not just at Union Square, but all over the city! Right now the NYPD are mindlessly kicking people out of Union Square at midnight and opening the park again at 6am! This is the first time in the history of the park that it has been barricaded off by police. THE 1% are really trying to slow this movement down, both with control of our corporate media’s newspapers and TV, and with the Police. They DO NOT WANT THIS MOVEMENT TO SUCCEED and will try everything in their power to create impediments, obstacles, misinformation, distortion, fear, sheer terror, distrust, distraction and flat-out LIES.

But these attempts are only STRENGTHENING THE RESOLVE OF THE PEOPLE.

All over the world people are learning the true nature of world affairs, the scope of the lies and abuses, and people are beginning to FIND and USE their voices and hearts! People are beginning to take on roles they never dreamed they would be doing! Becoming citizen journalists, neighborhood organizers, activists and leaders! People are starting to STAND UP TO INJUSTICE by coming out into the streets and ASSEMBLING in PUBLIC PARKS AND SQUARE. This seems to be the only form of redress we have at this point. The normal channels are not working. Writing our corrupt Congress members doesn’t WORK. WE MUST find a way to bring the current system… which has been based on FEAR, LIES, DECEPTION, SELFISHNESS, CONTROL, DEATH, DESTRUCTION, EXPLOITATION AND SUPPRESSION to it’s knees. If we each put small pebbles in this monstrous machine, it will start to come to a grinding halt. And WHILE it’s is being slowed down and stopped, we must create a NEW SYSTEM to REPLACE it with…. a system and public policy that is based on LIFE, SHARED HUMAN VALUES, PEACE, CLEAN TECHNOLOGIES AND SUSTAINABILITY, RESPECT, DIGNITY, HEALTH, PROSPERITY, HUMAN RIGHTS & RIGHTS OF NATURE ( tinyurl.com/ANewEconomyBasedOnLIFE , tinyurl.com/PrepareForTheBest )

YOU CAN’T EVICT AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME!

EVERY DAY WE CAN, we are in the park WAKING UP New Yorkers to the myriad of issues that threaten ALL OF US as NYC residents! And GUESS WHAT? People are finding CREATIVE, IMAGINATIVE, and SPONTANEOUS solutions to these issues! And often times, when the Police aren’t intimidating, bullying, suppressing our voices and harassing people, we are actually HAVING FUN implementing these solutions! Whether it be creating a song and dance routine against corporate personhood, organizing a human chain against poison gas and fracking, learning and sharing new skills with our neighbors, coming up with ideas for people to MOVE THEIR MONEY from the big banks, feeding fellow New Yorkers, composing a MIC-CHECK to be delivered at a CEO meeting, or engaging our neighbors in dialogue and discussion… this community building and saving the planet stuff can actually be fulfilling, engaging and quite fun!

But now it’s time for critical mass! It’s time for ALL OF NEW YORK TO START GETTING INVOLVED! WE CAN’T AFFORD TO BE ASLEEP ANY LONGER.

Please come down to the INFO & FOOD TABLES at Union Square to see what this is all about and hopefully START supporting the movement! If history tells us anything, we know that positive social change NEVER comes from our elected so-called “leaders”. REAL change always comes from people like US… who are ON THE GROUND organizing and MOBILIZING our neighborhoods! Thankfully, it has started. But now we need to REPLICATE what what started at Zuccotti Park and Union Square and public squares WORLDWIDE to the entire NYC, NY State, & the USA! We must bring these meetings and General Assemblies into parks, neighborhoods, communities ALL OVER NYC and begin to solve these problems in a collective way! And hold the REAL criminal politician “leaders” and “lawmakers”, CEO’s and out-of-control NYPD accountable!

We must begin to reconnect with our neighbors, talk about what’s happening around us, and start planning and implementing effective mobilizations and solutions to thwart off the very grave socioeconomic and environmental problems that face ALL OF US… not just as New Yorkers, but as human beings on a battered, assaulted, raped and failing Mother Earth. And we must come together not just for ourselves, but for all generations to come!

We must stand our ground and we must try our best to not be intimidated by misguided bullying police or employers and instead BE STRONG and have a LOUD, UNIFIED VOICE! WE ARE RESOLVED TO FIND SOLUTIONS and SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS PEACEFULLY, with COURAGE, DISCIPLINE, IMAGINATION, HUMOR, CREATIVITY, INGENUITY, AND LOVE!

If everyone just does SOMETHING, no matter how small, we will win this struggle! It’s time to WAKE UP and GET INVOLVED if you’re not already, and start supporting this powerful social movement! And if you don’t like the way the movement is evolving, DO YOUR OWN PART TO STEER IT IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION! NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE power of people coming together to solve problems. People can accomplish anything if we put our minds and hearts to it!

THE PEOPLE UNITED WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED!

LONG LIVE UNION SQUARE AND LONG LIVE THE CITY OF NEW YORK AND IT’S HARD WORKING PEACELOVING PEOPLE!

SEE YOU IN THE STREETS!
