The political freedoms, the right of assembly and association, and the freedom of the press – those are our weapons. Are we to sit back and abstain while somebody tries to rob us of them? It is said that a political act on our part implies that we accept the exiting state of affairs. On the contrary, so long as this state of affairs offers us the means of protesting against it, our use of these means does not signify that we recognise the prevailing order.

The Economic Revolution Requires a 25$ withdrawal from your BOA checking account on January first, 2012 -- pass this on!

The revolution has begun and will become obvious to all on JAN 1, 2012: If you want to see it, simply either close your Bank of America account, convince others to do this, and together we can collectively crash that bank -- as a demonstration of neo-democratic rule: that is, choosing to use the internet to collectively organize our powers and actions just as corporations and wealthy millionaires do - collectively. Pass this on and remind everyone you know to either close their account before January 2011, or to withdraw as much money as they can afford -- even as much as a 25 $ -- on January first: any removal of funds from that bank will contribute to our struggle against the 1%, against the deregulated greedy corporations, and the multi million and billionaires!

The resistance of the 85% is caused by the 15%; the 99% by the 1%.
