I want to propose we make more ways for the rest of the 99% to be subtly subversive and show support for the occupations happening across the US. One way would be to adopt a color, a COLOR that gives deeper significance to the movement in the USA. I propose that color be ORANGE/NARANJO. This is not to say that there should be one color for all people, but that, following the historical and global cultural manifestation of choosing a representative color, all colors of all the revolutions will eventually UNITE and form the full rainbow humanity represents.
Heres why ORANGE:
Orange is a color that represents Autumn . Autumn represents CHANGE, changing the system. American FALL Revolution via Dr. Cornel West at the 9/27 general assembly.
Orange is a symbol for joy and giving birth. Orange also represents spiritual energy and healing, it is an empowering color for celebration.
GIVING BIRTH to the power of the 99%, giving birth to a new movement, CELEBRATE the unification of the 99%.
Spiritually, Orange represents joy which is considered the catalyst of acting on faith to receive God's blessings.
Orange for Acting on FAITH that the 99% can collectively determine their own destiny.
FAITH that the movement WILL end GREED and CORPORATE Personhood, FAITH that the movement will create a collective, participatory, inclusive way of life for all of humanity.
Orange is considered to be a "happy color," representing the aspect of joy which raises the spirits and invigorates the observer.
INVIGORATES all observers to become ACTIVE Participants in the Movement and OCCUPATIONS.
HAPPY that our moment to SHINE is NOW.
The second chakra, which is orange, is located near the womb and is therefore associated with creativity.
CREATIVITY of the 99% to devise NEW ways of life, new MODES of DEMOCRATIC participation.
The WOMB as the site of BIRTH, CREATION, the power of the FEMININE to bring into being a more collectively responsible and connected world.
ORANGE: safety color, for SAFETY of NON-VIOLENT OCCUPIERS and PROTESTERS. SAFETY of all people to enjoy food, clothes, shelter, education, and healthcare, I.E. HUMAN RIGHTS.
Orange to take away the power of NYPDs orange 'kettling nets'.
Orange for the SUN to shine on the darkness of GREED and moneyOVERpeople.
Orange for the spiritual fire that will burn down the anti-human ways of BABYLON.
Orange in dreams is a sign of equalization/balance/temperance. Orange stands stoically b/t the raging initiations of red, and the themes awareness/realizations of yellow.
Orange is the fulcrum and our perception the teeter-totter. When we dream in oranges, we are asked to consider what is in-balance (or need of balance) in our lives.
Orange offers messages of harmony and contentment too - often achieved through a specific (sometimes lengthy) cycle of time.
Orange also asks us to build up our immunities, freshen up our routines and engage in practices that enhance our daily lives.
so, thats my 2 cents, but I think its worth a nickle :)
