An Alaskan journalist's perspective on local and national issues

The Revolution has Begun!

It is happening all over the country.  The massive coordinated strike against people and their First Amendment rights was met with swift and almost universally peaceful retaliation.  It is becoming clear now that these people are not only not going away, they are growing.  Every single day they are growing.  And as people like Mayor Bloomberg in NYC and the police continue to crack down upon them, the protesters don’t get scared, they get active.

Truly, this is an amazing time to be an American.  While there is a massive effort from the Right to make these people out to be villains, the fact is that the Occupy movement is bigger now than it ever was before!  For those who didn’t get to see it in person (as is the case with myself, unfortunately), there was a giant signal that was giving support to the Occupy Wall Street movement on the “Verizon Building” in NYC.  There was an slogan that was displayed on it that needs to be given to everybody.  It is the symbol of the revolution that is growing.

Look around. You are a part of a Global Uprising.
We are a Cry from the Heart of the World!
We are Unstoppable!  Another World Is Possible!
Happy Birthday #Occupy Movement

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.  It is absolute truth.  Another world is not only possible, there are signs that it is growing.  There are signs that the status quo is getting scared.  MSNBC recently ceized a memo from a banking lobbyist group talking about how they are going to be working on a counter-attack against the Occupy movement.  The signs are everywhere that this is making the attention of all America turn to what is happening.

With new data pointing to one in three Americans living just above or below the poverty line, the system needs to change.  What people need to realize is that it can.  Changing it won’t be easy.  It will be an incredibly arduous process.  What is giving so much hope to many is that those who are part of the Occupy movement are showing signs that they are not going to give up.  That the terror that our police force uses against them isn’t going to work.  That the thugs who are in the completely unaccountable police department are not going to force the people to stop.

It is an amazing day today.  The National Day of Action was the response to the corrupt systerm and the thuggery that the cops have employed, none of them standing up and saying that this is wrong.  A retired police captain named Ray Lewis was arrested on the National Day of Action.  Another nice thing that is being pointed out is the lies of the police department.  The clearing of Zucotti Park was a lie.  The police said it was for the safety of those at the park.  That is a completely bogus reason.  It was to get rid of them.  But the very next day, they were back, and stronger than ever before!

Not much more to say, except that the Occupiers must keep on.  The true colors of those in power is being shown.  The fact that the police are nothing more than thugs is being shown.  If I lived where this was happening, or had the money to go there, I would.  Fight on, my fellow warriors of justice!  A better world is possible, and it is starting right now!

Peace out,

Lefty
