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

Subject: [Wake Up World] World Unites October 15th 2011
Wake Up World has posted a new item, ‘World Unites October 15th 2011′
On October 15th people from all over the world will take to the streets and
squares. From America to Asia, from Africa to Europe, people are rising up to
claim their rights and demand a true democracy. Now it is time for all of us to
join in a global non violent protest. The ruling powers work for the benefit of
just a few, ignoring the will of the vast majority and the human and
environmental price we all have to pay. This intolerable situation must
end. United in one voice, we will let politicians, and the financial elites
they serve, know it is up to us, the people, to decide our future. We are not
goods in the hands of politicians and bankers who do not represent us. On
October 15th, we will meet on the streets to initiate the global change we
want. We will peacefully demonstrate, talk and organize until we make it
happen. It’s time for us to unite. It’s time for them to listen.
Since this global initiative came to light, it reminded me of a Mother Teresa
quote – “I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations. I
said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll
be there” I think this quote is perfect for this event. There’s no point in
attending any of these demonstrations if you are going to come from a place of
fear and negativity, the engergy that this creates is counter productive to
what is trying to be achieved. Come from a place of love and peace by spreading

From the official organising website of Occupy Wall Street, here are 23 reasons
why Americans are attending these demonstrations.
