Declaration of the Occupation of New York City
Yesterday, over 700 Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested and issued summonses or desk appearance tickets in connection with their demonstration on, and blockage of, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. Resentment in connection to social injustice has been palpably rising in the U.S. and around the world. Ten years ago, when I was doing doctoral work at the University of Illinois at Chicago, a professor of mine asked the class, speaking of social injustice and economic inequality in the U.S., this question: "Where is the revolution?" Nobody knew how to answer her. But that was before Arab Spring.
"Occupy Wall Street is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders, and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that we are the 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. We are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants. As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies."
Declaration of the Occupation of New York City:
"As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.
As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.
