My friend, Jack, sent me this. I signed up and cried as I observed names rolling in from all over the world in solidarity:
Watching the news last night, President Obama addressed the issue of Americans’ occupation of Times Square with typical superficiality and inaccuracy, calling it a protest against the Wall Street elite that were not properly punished and have caused the glut of foreclosure homes. Obama’s mainstream media declaration is undoubtedly manipulative, as he tries to redefine for America what people’s real message is out there in order to hide the pervasive corruption at the root of our government’s lethal collusions with Big Business. This corruption spreads far beyond the Wall Street scandal, and this is what people all over the world are protesting.
I am so happy that Avaaz has jumped in to help show that this is a mainstream movement, not a fringe protest.The signatures will be posted in Times Square on a digital counter. So, please join in and help light up Times Square. This is a major oopportunity. Hello 1968…!
In solidarity, Jack
