Civil disobedience, when used properly, will bring change to systems, customs and traditions that are cruel, outdated or abusive. The power of the masses is not in the angry crowd, the stone thrower or the single person seeking attention.
We need to occupy the inside of County Courthouses.
Let us occupy the halls of our government.
Fill the courtrooms with those who want to enlist change.
Fill the chambers of City Council meetings; occupy the usually empty seats at the meetings of Boards of Supervisors
Occupy our libraries.
Our roads and bridges belong to the masses. Occupy them.
Bus terminals, train stations, airports, all belong to the masses.
Halting business as usual and getting the attention of the media as well as those who are in control can happen and will happen. But only when those in control learn, that the way they are operating will no longer be tolerated. It is the job of the masses to teach them. Once those in control understand that the masses have power, and that power, unleashed in the confines of non-violent, passive and peaceful protest will continue and will affect their ability to profit or govern, then and only then can we "occupy".
Occupy is not going to enlist in any form of breaking laws and will not participate in unlawful acts. We will however occupy at will, randomly staging acts of civil disobedience, and by these actions effect change.
As a free people, It is our history. As a free people, it is our legacy.
