We are legion.

Our country has been robbed by the bankers, wall street, and the corporations of amerika.

We have a chance to unite and show our alliance. We are America.

Wall street has to go. 30 million unemployed in this county, and we can't see the pink elephant in the room.? Bank profits are not a sign of a prosperous nation. Banks give us no valuable service.

Let us unite peacefully. Let us speak our truth with nonviolence. We will use signs, music, conversations, and alliance to spread the word. We will communicate compassion, truth, with a unified message.

We are the thirty million unemployed in this country. Their media deceives us, while politicians convince us they are all outsiders. They have built a military, industrial, debt-ustrial, bank financed complex, and we can end it. The occupation will be the beginning of the new America. Our America.

When an area becomes too crowded, I plan on just walking to another area. Big groups will attract attention, and the police will focus on them. Small groups are harder to break up and can still carry out the occupation. Imagine ten thousands groups of five people each... We will change the world.

Ideally each group will have one camera person and a bunch of people holding signs. Messages will easily spread from group to group as our collective conscious becomes stronger and stronger. As long as we're filming, not blocking the sidewalk, less than 20 strong, and willing to break up and relocate elsewhere in the area, the police won't be able to stop us. Not all of us.

So... is that nonviolence like Athens or like London? The bank clerks who burned to death didn't really feel that love in Greece. How will this protest be any different? There is no way you can threaten to shut down Wall Street and then somehow expect no violence or rioting. This nonviolent protest will attract a few of the Molotov cocktail crowd as well. Once the violence starts, all of the good intentions of "compassion and truth" will not keep the nonviolent majority safe from the tear gas and rubber bullets that police will inevitably use. You can count on it. The police will defend themselves against the agitators who are using you nonviolent types as a human shield. Then what will you do? call 911? ask the agitators politely to stop being violent?
