Now it’s up to us – Be Everywhere, Occupy Everything

The time of events is useful only to the expression of collective opinion. The brutality of the crisis on our lives and the remoteness of the policy (the one with lowercase p) force us to take a step further, to resume – however difficult – Politics in our hands (one with a capital P). Namely the ability to collectively solve problems that stifle our daily lives.Only by pooling our difficulties and our skills (whatever they are) will have the opportunity to change things, to have the strength to escape from the decisions of those who govern us, but just wants the profits of banks, to found a new way to democracy.

We met and met on Thursday 27 in the auditorium, packed with people, the Salaborsa.The proposals were once many: Auto Reduction, actions against banks and Equitalia, occupation of spaces to be used for public assemblies, dormitories, kindergartens, etc. .. There is apparently a widespread need to get involved because the situation is critical for all *, even if not in the same way.

General Strike – Occupy Oakland – 2 November

Via Scoop.itMapping Social Network Unionism Worldwide

On Wednesday, November 2nd as part of the Oakland General Strike, we will march on the Port of Oakland and shut it down. We will converge at 5pm at 14th and Broadway and march to the port to shut it down before the 7pm night shift. We are doing this in order to blockade the flow of capital on the day of the General Strike, as well as to show our commitment to solidarity with Longshore workers in their struggle against EGT in Longview, Washington. EGT is an international grain exporter which is attempting to rupture longshore jurisdiction. The driving force behind EGT is Bunge LTD, a leading agribusiness and food company which reported 2.4 billion dollars in profit in 2010; this company has strong ties to Wall Street. This is but one example of Wall Street’s corporate attack on workers. The Oakland General Strike will demonstrate the wide reaching implications of the Occupy Wall Street movement. The entire world is fed up with the huge disparity of wealth caused by the present system. Now is the time that the people are doing something about it.The Oakland General Strike is a warning shot to the 1% – their wealth only exists because the 99% creates it for them.
