Tags: events, occupy sandy, strike debt, nyc

We don't know when the next flood or economic storm will hit. But it will, and our networks of resistance and solidarity will be even more necessary, even more fruitful.

Below, you will find ways to engage in our mutual recovery from the man-made disaster of climate change, debt and financial collapse.

This Sunday, Strike Debt is hosting a regional open house and Holiday festival to celebrate the success of the Rolling Jubilee Telethon which raised over $471,999 to abolish $9,444,811 of debt!

Join us to celebrate and learn about Strike Debt projects while enjoying food, art, music, (even a children’s area) with allies including Occupy Sandy, Northeast Strike Debt Affiliates, faith groups and community organizations. Hope to see you there!

we are doing very well "dealing with the problem from the ground up" and this is the solid basis for what is happening to us but we are not facing up to divisive issues and agents provocateur and corporate zombies mouthing platitudes but incapable of thinking for themselves who are controlled by the elite! the faith groups and freemasons are the main problem with their hidden agenda, misanthrope beliefs/delusions! blood sacrifice preaching is morally unacceptable. putting images of a man nailed to a cross into children's minds (AND MY MIND!) are morally unacceptable!

As a Christian, I am not interested in following a godless movement that will not respect my beliefs. However, I do believe in what OWS stands for and they have my support as long as we acknowledge our differences and agree to work around them. We will not get anywhere by bashing one another's beliefs. If putting a cross with a man on the cross is a disturbing or unacceptable thing to you, it is not me. I would not want to force you to take my stand but I would appreciate if you respect my desire to do that. We cannot continue trying to stand on this foot or the other, how many experiments do we need before we know what we want as a world? As a people, how we do life is pretty much determined, what we need is the mere understanding that we will never all be on the same page but we can respect one another's views and learn to live in harmony. I wan that more than anything. I want a world in which we all have respect and can agree to disagree on issues that concern us.

christians do not treat us as equals. they look down on us as sinners! they are here to recruit for their damned community and break up our occupy community. christianity is a corporate religion. they support the prohibition of marijuana and stop and frisk. christians follow their corporate policy and do not think for themselves.

Christians that look down on anyone are sinners.

I'm yet to meet a bigger bunch of hypocrites than your usual evangelistic do-gooder god-botherers.

the only obstacle to enlightenment is looking down on others. the only path to true democracy, reasoning together, is ending the prohibition of marijuana. the gospel is a money shark scam. christians prey upon others. they put their sins on jesus being their scapegoat, totally morally reprehensible. preaching being washed in the blood of the lamb is satanism. they shove dead jesus down our throats in their satanic communion. they are the ENEMY WITHIN our beautiful revolutionary community.
