Change is needed. Change is coming. Don't be scared. Change is good.
There are so many reasons why people are currently joining together. We are responsible for what we do not know. We are responsible, as adults, to see the wide variety of angles to be able to adequately understand a situation. Some people are too busy to do the research (because the information is not always so easy to find). Some people are apathetic. Some people 'watch the news' and 'read the paper' and feel informed. Although the media gives Occupy a bad wrap, understand it is a small part of a bigger movement. There is so much going on that is under reported. I have done research on this for a while now and will share some links and information.
Over 780 million dollars of stock were lost by Citicorp shareholders, which was a planned event by the corporation...While Citicorp was part of the big banks that received massive bailouts from the Federal Reserve totaling 7.7 trillion (that went unreported to the public and unsigned by Congress). http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2011/11/28/142854391/report-fed-committed-7-77-trillion-to-rescue-banks We lost millions, they received trillions. There's the start of the problem.
Mobil and other fossil fuel corps are still reporting billions in profits. http://money.cnn.com/2011/07/28/news/companies/exxon_mobil_earnings/index.htm We are paying more for fuel and they are hurting the planet, when green and free energy is possible utilizing free natural renewable resources, there's another part of the problem.
The layoffs happen at these big corporations, and entitle the CEO's to massive salaries, bonuses and fringe benefits http://investing.businessweek.com/research/stocks/people/person.asp?personId=1132479&ticker=VZ%3AU while the corporation is sheltering billions in profits in offshore corporations and avoiding taxes through loopholes http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/31/business/where-pay-for-chief-executives-tops-the-company-tax-burden.html and homes are foreclosed upon illegally while soldiers are fighting for this country http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/29/bank-of-america-illegal-foreclosures_n_1118471.html while executives get bonuses http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/2011/11/15/congress-seeking-to-end-f_n_1095715.html. Fannie Mae executives EACH received massive money in bonuses after the bailout (for 'losing' money on the foreclosures), while families went homeless and struggled. The corporations and politicians in the pocket and the game we are all pawns in is where the problem is. The woman that blew the whistle on the illegal soldier's home's foreclosures was found dead in her home shortly thereafter. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/30/tracy-lawrence-whistleblower-dead_n_1120194.html?ref=business&icid=maing-grid10
Mainstream media will not report certain events that would most definitely be of public interest. Like how Occupy, Arab Spring and 15M are all allies, yet it is not reported that millions worldwide are protesting. We hear information about Egypt, Syria, Libya all in a positive light. Hillary Clinton even went there twice recently to 'help': http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/story/2011-10-18/clinton-libya-aid/50810602/1. This is reported on the news, but Occupy is reported as a bunch of 'jobless', 'hippy', 'bums', who need to 'take a bath'. That is not the case: http://www.fastcompany.com/1789018/occupy-wall-street-demographics-statistics In fact, many of them are holding lots of student loan debt, because they were doing what they were 'supposed' to do: http://www.usatoday.com/money/perfi/college/story/2011-10-19/student-loan-debt/50818676/1 Then this: http://www.businessinsider.com/the-medias-blackout-of-the-national-defense-authorization-act-is-shameful-2011-12. Right now, there's an internet censorship bill on the table, the loose language SOPA: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_Online_Piracy_Act Oh boy.
The end users who are affected by all these antics who aren't on board are likely either ill-informed or scared. Economists are on board: http://www.adbusters.org/abtv/occupy-economics.html If they are ill informed, it is likely because of the mass media. Here is a movie...made by the 1% (Jamie Johnson...of Johnson & Johnson) for the 99%. The One Percent: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpIoGgafFsE
Luckily, people are waking up. It is a known fact that geomagnetics stimulate the pineal gland. http://efile.mpsc.state.mi.us/efile/docs/13934/0073.pdf The pineal gland is the 'awake and aware' center. It is called 'the seat of the soul'. http://psi-researchcentre.co.uk/article_10.htm There have been CME's shot off of the sun, and have been hitting our atmosphere sporadically for a couple months now, we are in the middle of a solar storm. http://spaceweather.com/ People are literally 'waking up'. Fouride is a known toxin used to calcify the pineal gland. Fluoride was first used by Hitler. Over 50% of the US unnecessarily uses Fluoride in the water to prevent critical thinking, and questioning. Fouride has benefits applied topically for teeth, but there is no benefits to ingesting it and the risk outweighs the benefits http://health.gov/environment/ReviewofFluoride/MAJfind.htm#asserisk, so why is it in our water? Even the CDC advises against it and 40% of our children have been poisoned by it: http://www.naturalnews.com/030952_CDC_fluoride.html Some may call it a conspiracy theory, but put the dots together. Only 2% of Europe Fluoridates the water.
We are waking up, as a mass. Some have been awake for many years, some are still 'snoozing'. We will continue to wake up. We are coming into interesting times. We are mere weeks from 2012. The date that has scared people for generations. It's almost here. There is no need to be scared. Fear is not conducive to change. Put your THOUGHTS out there as positive, productive, compassionate, love and gratitude. Feed the movement through positive thought. That is the idea of the massive meditations. We are changing, evolving and nature is gifting us with tools to make it easier, to bring us to a more intuitive and compassionate, human oriented (instead of profit oriented) state. Change is needed and is in its infancy. There is little chance that this is going to 'just go away'. It is global. The United States is advocating for the protesters living under oppressive rule in other countries. We too, are being subjected to the same behavior.
We are only as free as we believe we are. If you've ever worked hard and still had a hard time paying a bill, you are part of the movement. If you've ever wondered why it seems that no matter what you do, you just can't 'get ahead', you are part of the movement. The financial structure is designed for the wealth gap to continue. http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/business/jan-june11/incomegap_05-06.html
Want to create more jobs to handle the increasing unemployment rate? "299 of the S&P 500 CEOs made a collective $3.4 billion. And that could support 103,000 workers making average wages." ~VINEETA ANAND
4.5 BILLION dollars were pulled from major banks in the matter of 45 days. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bank_Transfer_Day S & P just downgraded those same banks (that also recorded record profits) ratings. http://www.npr.org/2011/11/29/142915811/s-p-downgrades-top-u-s-banks-credit-ratings
Change is happening.
Why are people worldwide waking up NOW? ...because it's time. It's all tied together. People are tired of being pawns in a game they are not designed to win.
