#S25: Rodea el Congreso

A new tactic of global resistance is emerging: "Surround the Congress." Following #25S, when thousands of protestors converged on Spain's parliament building in Madrid to denounce austerity and the kidnapping of popular sovereignty by the Troika and the Markets, similar actions will take place Saturday September 29th across Spain and in a number of European capitals, including Rome, Lisbon, London, Brussels, and Amsterdam. With momentum behind the new tactic growing, AdBusters has called for an October 31 "Halloween Party" on Capitol Hill.

Events are organizing quickly: connect with your local networks to get involved! See here for even more upcoming anti-austerity mobilizations.

I hope we can come up with some demands. Just to go to Congress now could get spinned as a demand to "do something" or to "finally take action" (like come to an agreement to implement austerity) To "make the tough decisions" or "make the hard choices" (yep, austerity) or to "stop kicking the can down the road" English translation would be "let's get this austerity into gear now." So, demands are crucial on this one.

The picture! It is visual proof that millions are already in the revolution that gets little coverage in the mass media. Here in India our leaders are still claiming India as "super power" and "strong economy" and the fun is people are still buying that crap. I would love to see more posts in OWS page. I feel surprised to see the few postings here while the OWS Spirit is pouring out in millions.

Once I attended a Pranic healing class and was quite impressed with the results. Their base-line is, "Thought carries energy and energy follows thought." So, it is only natural to believe the greater the word spreads, the higher the public energy. I appeal to people to post more and get the words spread out.

Modern democracy is a leaderless and continuous process that includes the economy. We shall heal the planet with human rights or perish. The next step is hiring a smart police chief. ¡ Viva la Evolución !

It's good to see that the young generation of Americans organizing Occupy realizes that modern protests do not come from American thought. We Americans used to be leaders in this domain, but no longer. It takes maturity to accept that AdBusters from Canada, and protests from other countries should be our guide because they have the best ideas. Thumbs up to Occupy for following the recommendations of AdBusters.
