A Message From Occupied Wall Street (Day Ten)

Posted 2 years ago on Sept. 27, 2011, 2:31 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt
Tags: communiqué

This is the tenth communiqué from the 99 percent. We are occupying Wall Street.

Liberty Square Photo

On September 27th, 2011, we marched on the Financial District's Luxury Night Out, where couples wore outfits that cost more than we will ever make in a month and looked at cars that cost more than we will ever make in a year, afterward, they went back to one of their many houses that cost more than we will make in our lifetime.

Occupied Boston doesn't need a bullhorn to have their voices heard. They have the people's microphone.

So does Michael Moore, who addressed us tonight.

Michael Moore at Occupy Wall Street

Occupied San Francisco grows larger every day.

Occupied Chicago was dispersed but not defeated. They will regroup and reoccupy.

So far at least 52 cities in America are occupied or organizing. We span at least three continents.

Add your home. Make your voice heard.

We are growing. Block by block – city by city. We will see change in this country, in this world.

It will happen sooner than you can imagine.

I am a 22-year-old American living in Copenhagen for a year. Part of the reason I came to Denmark was because I could not take the radical left silence and disorganization that I saw as American apathy anymore. You are making me want to come home. You are making me proud of my country for the first time in my adult life.

Hello Walker, I applaud your bravery for speaking out, especially in the south!

I know your voice will get stronger day by day. There will come a time when the naysayers will have nothing left to say and raise their eyebrows in admiration for what you/we are doing.

Agreed. I moved to South America a few years ago because people told me "if you don't like America why don't you just leave." whenever I complained about the current state of things or tried to rally my friends and colleagues to do something and now the writing is on the wall. People are FINALLY putting down their joints, cans of bud light and their Playstation controls and waking up to the harsh reality of what's really going on in the United States. Thank you to all of the Americans that STAYED behind and are out in the streets protesting, tweeting and making a difference on behalf of all of those Americans that live abroad and gave up years ago on the country... such as myself. Maybe now Americans will stop renouncing their US Citizenship in record numbers (google it 2010) at embassies abroad and start coming back home again. I will wait out the coming violent riots (london) and pandemonium a few more months/years and consider coming "home" too... be strong. be brave for those of us who are not. It's going to get worse, before it gets better.

There have been notable events in American history that raised our consciousness and shook us awake for a moment, but I think Occupy Wallstreet is THE most inspiring thing that ordinary American people have done since the first revolution. More and more ordinary people are going to get it and get behind this global revolution. From the depths of my being I thank the brilliant organizers and those who are on the ground occupying.

[-] 1 points by assnipple (3) 2 years ago

You need an "Occupy Wall Street for Dummies" site to deflect all the questions and comments about what the movement is about. It's a sad truth that many Americans have no clue what wall street is, how lobbying works, the federal reserve, etc. Most people wake up on their comfy bed to the Justin Bieber alarm ring-tone they purchased from iTunes and come to this site and ask what's all this about? I don't see 42% of American kids living in poverty... I don't see unemployed people, etc.

lol, you all are a bunch of fools! This is not Mubarek’s Egypt. This is not Gaddafi’s Libya. This is not Al-Assad’s Syria and this is most definitely not Omar’s Afghanistan. Grow up kids and realize this: even the worst offenses of Hoover’s days would have been welcomed by Pinochet’s Chile. Yes, the wealthiest 1% of America is richer than any time in history, but even in a recession there is more to be shared by the remaining 99% of Americans than in any other country in any other point in history. Are we perfect? No, and many of your seniors work tirelessly every day to make this country a better place. Many of them wear uniforms, and some of them make mistakes. If you spent more time listening than yelling you might start to understand why we are where we are, and be a little happier about it. Take that youthful energy and make good use of it! But before you gripe about petty problems you should take some time to learn about this world and how we got where we are. Don’t trust every rant you hear, just because it agrees with your assumptions (or isn’t authority) and don’t ignore every voice that disagrees with you just because it’s from someone in a “privileged” position. Maybe you aren’t as smart as you think. Maybe “they” aren’t as evil as you think. And maybe your ability to spend an unlimited amount of time protesting on the street without worrying where your food will come from is a privilege that most people outside of America envy every day.

Let us arrive at a concrete charter of goals; let us specify that the investigations against the corporations and the banks must proceed. The government's move to stall legal proceedings against these banks which caused the recession shouldn't be allowed to succeed - the state attorney generals have all protested this move by the government but the whitehouse is determined to allow these banks to go away after paying a token penalty.

Call for an overhaul of the SEC. Specify that the SEC must publicly list the name of the corporations against which investigations were pending when the evidence against them was deleted from their files. These details must be put out in the public domain and also the nature of the investigations.

Call for cancellation of the banking licenses for those banks accused of fraud, money laundering, and insider trading. Ask for the shutdown of these banks and corporations.

Specify jail terms for bank officials convicted of fraud.

Make it illegal for any person serving on the board or the pay roll of any of these corporations from serving in the government above a certain designation (secretaries etc). Also, they must be barred from holding any of these posts in a company after they leave the government for at least 1 year. This is to prevent the corporations from sneaking in their representatives into key posts in the government and the continuous revolving door between wall st and the government.

Demand a full audit of the Federal Reserve.

Regulate insurance to prevent insurance from being taken on CDOs and other derivatives by investment banks who have already divested these CDOs and derivatives from their portfolio.

Call for strict regulations of CDOs and derivatives.

Call for an people's representative - a government ombudsman to be appointed into the board of all banks. This representative will have to vote as per the citizen sanction.

The media is trying to turn the people against the cops. DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN. We need the cops to stand with us - the average cop knows that the Wall St companies are robbing us blind and that they need to be stopped. There are some cops who are idiots and there may be some who are being used to bring animosity between the people and the cops.

The police force, the military and the people must stand in solidarity to fight this war. Let us not let the media be used by the corporations and the government to divide us.

MSNBC has already started posting videos full of righteous indignation about the cops overreaching their authority. While this is true, the fact that MSNBC hasn't covered the reason for the protest or anything at all about the corruption of the corporations which has led to this protest as also the fact that the MSNBC's narration seems to be a general comment about police brutality in the US leads me to believe that the underlying agenda may be to bring a wedge between the people and the cops.

Expect to see many more news stories in the media which focus on police violence without even mentioning a thing about the reason for the protest.

The chief aim of this exercise is to divide the people and to redirect their attention towards cops. NO, We should not fall for this ruse.

This protest is about corporate chicanery and malfeasance on Wall St. This is not about cop brutality.

Whenever the cops act violently let us not fall for the ruse. Let us go out of the way to be friendly to the cops and to get them on our side no matter what trick the government pulls to separate us.

Hello All, I work in the World Financial Center and walk by your camp everyday after getting off the bus. While I do not agree with a lot, if not most of your views, I am proud that so many of you are trying to make your voice heard. As a 26-yr old struggling to create a bright future for myself, I can certainly understand what a lot of you are going through.

However, my biggest gripe about your "movement" is lack of unity in what your goal(s) are. Also some of your demands are just flat out ridiculous. End Poverty?? Are you kidding me, while that is a noble dream, that should not be one of your demands in this protest. Making unattainable demands like that only lowers your credibility in front of all the people who want to support you. Also from the videos and public speeches I happen to come across, it doesnt appear that anyone can really articulate what the purpose is.

At the end, I am proud of this movement and will continue to wish you the best of luck.

Hello. I am a community college professor in Baltimore, MD. I eagerly await the Washington, DC demonstration as I plan to be in Freedom Plaza all weekend and returning whenever possible. I've tried to get the word out to many of my students and people in our community. I think it would help the cause tremendously to widely publish two or three concrete demands for public POLICY change. Right now your ideology is clear, but what you are asking to be done is not. Students asked me - "What's their point?" My answer - "To narrow the gap between rich and poor and to distribute wealth and power in a more equitable manner. Without that, you don't truly have a democracy." The question that followed was - "How do they propose to do that?" This is where making two or three concrete policy demands would give the movement a clearer direction and more credibility in the public eye. Please post these at the top of your homepage and keep them there.

Finally, thank you for toughing out these last ten days or so. Thank you for being brave and committed and trust that the movement is growing.

In solidarity,

Several people have posted specifics about what they want.... reinstating Glass-Steagall is just one of them. Stripping away corporations' rights of personhood, as granted them by the U.S. Supreme Court is another. Diminishing or eliminating the power of lobbyists is another. Keeping corporate influence (and money) out of politics is another. You just have to look for the demands in the different posts.

Perhaps it is best that there is no set policy agenda. The real value of these protests, in my opinion, is to draw people's attention to the source of the problem, since so many wish to blame republicans or democrats, when the people behind the problem own our "elected" government on both sides of the aisle.

If enough national attention can be focused on the source of the problem, real, lasting solutions can be hammered out carefully, over time. What has been lacking until now has been identification and definition of the problem. Everybody's so worried about their 401k's that they think propping up Wall Street is the only way forward.

[-] 1 points by TheVolunteerWino (112) 2 years ago

I must agree when you say perhaps it is best that there is no set policy, . .we hear so many voices it helps us all see the scope of the problem, . .my greatest fear is some one person or organization will take over while this is still in its infancy, and only write in their ideals, leaving so many of the %99 alienated in the end

one way i would like to see the wealth gap made better is to tax the mega corporates, and the pay workers a sum according to how many years (manhours), they have been employed in theor life,the longer you have contributed to society, the bigger your bonus . .what always has bothered me is the fact that in the US, . A school janitor who has served his community for 30 years of hard work, makes so much less than a young person fresh out of school, .. . I believe that the janitor has given more time, and his pay should reflect that contribution ,. . in todays world, after 30 years, the most he can look forward to is the banker conning his family into a new loan and and later taking his house because he cant even afford a lawyer, ... .to me, a person should be on a sliding scale where a student of four years of higher education and his first year of work, should be paid for the total of his wages, plus a five year govt benefit, . while the janitor would be receiving his wage, plus a 39 year benefit which should be so substantial, that he can plan his own retirement, . . .whatever way, . .. we do need a more equal wage distribution in this country

Heya,

Sometimes I have to wonder what motivates you all.

I sense that there's an undercurrent of feeling that it's a crime to be successful and wealthy. That's not the crime, the crime is people wanting work, not getting it, and being forced into poverty. I feel that a positive movement for social change should come out of well meaning motives. People should be acting out because they want justice for others, not because they're jealous of others. People should seek victory for others out of suffering, not just blindly cry for vengeance against the haves.

Check yourselves. Are you motivated by compassion and love, or are you driven by hate and jealousy.

With respect, I believe you are mistaken. I doubt any of the people who are donating their time are doing so because they wish they were billionaires.

Taking our arguments to the government is an exercise in futility, given that it is owned and controlled by the entities from which we wish redress. Take the argument to the place where the decisions are actually made: Wall Street. Like the Wizard of Oz, as long as they can rule from behind the curtain, pulling switches and levers that make something that seems much larger create noise and steam, we are fighting the puppets instead of the puppet masters.

It's time for Toto to pull back the curtain and expose the farce.

I appreciate all that you guys are doing, and I pray night and day for you success. I have over 100k student loan debt and currently I feel as if my future has been destroy. If anyone could assist in spreading this petition, hopefully we can solve the student loan debt crisis since it is also applicable to this movement. Thank you!

Your doing great work! Lots of support and love from me from Amsterdam (will protest in the Hague on Oct 15). One thought: would it be an idea to rename the mission statement to 'NYC Protest for American Economic Revolution', in order to appeal to more minds?

Right, the key adjective, Economic Revolution, Economic Insurgency.

I can't take reading anymore incoherence from such obvious winies. As soon as big labor saw masses of "usefull idiots" they come riding in to make use of the publicity. Wow!- here comes michael moore -big surprise!-how many of his ill-gotten million$ is he giving away so you all are satisfied you finally are treated fair? ASK HIM RIGHT IN FRONT OF A CROWD THRU A BULLHORN TO SHARE IT ALL WITH YOU. He will make a movie about YOU and be rich again, right? if there are, say, 100,00 of you there and he is reportedly worth $50million he can hand out $500 to EACH ONE! I bet he'll start writing checks on the spot. Once his new movie ABOUT OWS comes out he'll be rich again and ALL OF YOU THERE ARE OWED ROYALTIES! GO DO IT-see what he does!

i think the president, congress, and the senate need to take a pay cut. they shouldnt cut others pay without starting with theirs. lead by example and listen to the 99%. if they cut their own pay they would still make a ton from side deals and lobbiest. also why do our taxes pay for their office bottles of water, all the supplies in their office, gas in their cars, plane trips, ect. when i have to come out of pocket for anything i need for our office. at the start of a school year my little girls teacher has to pay for the classroom suppiles along with me and my wife who buys almost 100.00 worth of stuff for the class and every parent does the same. how does this add up?? if they really want to start fixing the deficit that we are in because of their spending and corp. greed they need to start with their selfs 1st!! please be my voice in this matter their on the ground and thank you for being the voice of us 99%. im sending suppiles. i wish i could be there to help loudin our voice on the ground. again thank yall so so so much. with love from georgia, david

I think all politicians should make minimum wage without perks, . hell they are the public servants even of the voting poor, . ... . .and all lobbying should be made illegal, . .and in this digital age, . .why cant we vote from the pool of all legally eligible people who go through the motions of signing up for the job, . .why cant we have a web site that lists all eligible candidates, with a search on their platforms and positions, . .why is it only two parties, . .why parties at all, . ..why cant we search and put together the candidate that suits us best and vote for them?

You need to create team plays, based on votes cast as proof. Many people will offer rhetoric, MP Ralph Nader [Independent], MP Michael Moore [Independent], etc., but without team work through ranked choice votes kept as proof, you have no adequate tool on which to base your coordinated actions.

There's plenty of people who will speak, but who's going to organize a 125-way debate that elects 100 consecutively ranked names with plenty of consecutively ranked names as back-ups?

Who is going to make sure that the free speech time is split exactly proportionately between all who wish to speak? If all 125 nominees plus all write-in names don't show up, then split the time proportionately between those who are there.

It's not about one person, it's about 100 people or 1000 people, depending on how many you're trying to elect simultaneously in a Sainte-Lague parliament (not single-winner districts, please).

But we are going too slow, and we need to create a pure proportional representation parliament in New York State faster.
