The following were the words spoken by Reverend Billy (in the video above) that might have gotten him up to a year in jail time, if we do not act.

We are in the midst of a mass extinction at this time. I ask you to think of your own children. I am the father of a three year old and I’m worried about the kind of world that my daughter will inherit. Please protect life, protect the earth. Take your money out of J.P. Morgan Chase or work inside the bank to change the values system of this bank. It is the largest bank in the United States by assets, but it is also the top bank in the world for financing industrial projects which poison the atmosphere with co2 emissions.

Who caused Hurricane Sandy?

Chase bank did, if anybody did. Rise up against the corporations that are poisoning the atmosphere. It’s up to you and to me, only we can do it.

Somebody give me a “Change-a-lujah”!
Somebody give me a “Life-a-lujah”!
Somebody give me a “Life-a-lujah”!

Right Hallelujah

Are you alright? Is no one angry?

You are angry, in the white shirt, I can tell.

Sign Rev. Billy’s petition, and check him out on stage in NYC while he is still a free man.

Stay tuned to http://www.revbilly.com/

or write a nice email to the Honorable Cy Vance, Jr. to let him know what an upstanding citizen the Reverend is, and how he lights up culture and society with his presence.

Stop Watching Us

This video is a call to action released in support of the Stop Watching Us: Rally Against Mass Surveillance being held in Washington, DC, on Saturday, Oct. 26, the 12th anniversary of the Patriot Act. Formed in June 2013, the StopWatching.us coalition is comprised of more than 100 public advocacy organizations and companies from across the political spectrum demanding that Congress investigate the full extent of the NSA's spying programs.

A diverse cast of media, academic, political and legal figures and truth-speakers unite in the video to sound the alarm over unconstitutional government surveillance. The full list, in order of appearance, includes:

Thomas Drake and Daniel Choi will also speak at the rally, which begins with a march from Columbus Circle to the Capitol Reflecting Pool at 12 p.m. EST on Saturday, Oct. 26. StopWatching.us will also deliver more than 500,000 signatures opposing the NSA’s mass surveillance to Congress. The coalition is calling for a full Congressional investigation of America’s surveillance programs, reform to federal surveillance law, and accountability from officials responsible for hiding this surveillance from lawmakers and the public.
