Woodie Guthrie's This Land is Your Land is very appropiate for this movement. I remember seeing Tommie Guthrie, Woodie's other son, sing at Mamoth Mtn, CA with a group of really nice people who had picked me up hitch-hiking years ago while on my way to Australia. One song I amusingly remembered was Dead Skunk in The middle of The Road. Still, even tho I am not religious, this is the song I feel best fits this movement. ;-)

I was there, & marched with him on May day when we took 5th Ave from the Police.

Exhilerating. I hope sunday is as big. I have my doubts about the numbers of people. But I am trying to get people there. Very discouraging. So many peoplethink Occupy is dead. Hard to convince them.

I will keep working on all my family and friends to remake our 1% controlled system. I've committed for 20 years for the kind of change OWS stands for.

This needs to be recorded in high def. so we can all be in New York vicariously, anyway.

Pretty cool. You should post it in the fracking thread too.

RAPresentation for OWS is musical primer to a visionary economic system. ParEcon is an alternative to the 1% economics of today's coked out capitalism, and the old record of your grandpapys communism. It is something as new as revolution and as old as revolt. It is in process, and invites participation. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENLx5J3jO10&feature=player_embedded

The Occupy Movement is at a Crossroads. It is either entertainment or a real non-violent Revolution. It claims it is patterned on the Tahrir Sq Revolution On September 17th A real non-violent Revolution will : 1, Publically call for a Boycott of the Election, as they did in Egypt, getting 49% of registered voters not to vote. 90 million Americans are already rejecting this earth-endangering hoax, and that number is growing everyday, http://www.examiner.com/article/occupiers-burn-their-voter-registration-cards-protest http://www.theoccupypost.com/2012/occupiers-burn-their-voter-registration-cards-in-protest/ Why was this story not bannered here yet????? 2. Endorse the Occupy July 1st-4th Gender Parity Declarations that would bring overdue 5050 gender balance to representation and economic paradigms, as the Tahrir Revolution endorsed the Egyptian Woman's Charter, Sexism which has been destroying the US Occupy Movement from within, prevented OWS from ever mentioning the Egyptian Women's Charter http://www.unwomen.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/charter-egyptian-women-en.pdf 3. March on and Boycott the Corporate Media which is $elling the pseudoelection daily. Occupy has never marched on the Controlled Media. They have in other real non-violent Revolutions. Many media Execs are on the Boards of the Banks. US Occupy has failed to connect the dots. Tell them to March on the Media on September 17th 4 Call for the current pseudogovernment to resign and organize a Constitutional Convention in 2013 that is gender 5050, proportionately representative of minorites, and non-monied. Real non-violent Revolutions establish a new government under a new Constitution.

Music is wonderful, but it must accompany a Real Nonviolent REvolution. The OWS has become a series of disjointed protests without a REvolutionary focus on changing the paradigm. Email press@occupywallst.org and general@occupywallst.org and Founders Phil Arnone at anamesa.journal@gmail.com and Kall Lasn campaigns@adbusters.org (call 604.736.9401) that the US and North American Occupy Needs to Grow Up fast. NOW. TODAY.

I have written a 4000 word piece on the Julian Assange case: http://marthamitchelleffect.co.uk/#/assange-case/4568506448

It takes the submitted evidence and shows that there are serious questions to be asked in the London / Stockholm - WikiLeaks fiasco. It uses the same sources as all of the articles you may or may not have seen since the allegations were made. However, it does not cherry pick a few very selective quotes in order to make the appearance of a serious case against Julian. Instead my article shows everything and allows the reader to decide, and this is backed up by the sources being available to the reader (documents for downloading and links): http://marthamitchelleffect.co.uk/#/assange-case2/4568508684

There is nothing factually inaccurate in my article, there is almost no opinion. That was the whole point in writing it.

It would be great if it could be seen by a wider audience.
