I am here to say NO. NO to OUR money being used to reward the very people who put us into a worldwide economical crisis while the majority of us were left to suffer without a helping hand. NO to corporate interests ruling our country and preventing the realization of a basic human right such as affordable healthcare. NO to the economic model that has starved the middle class and brought the poverty numbers to historic heights. NO to politicians spending more time playing politics than on working for our common good. NO to a media class that is abandoning the ideals of journalism to slant, obscure, and even outright deny the truth in order to protect the corporate elite. NO to 9/11 and terrorism being used as justifications to strip us of our civil rights one by one. NO to state officials believing they can silent us by denying us our right to assemble and demonstrate. NO to police brutality and unjustified arrests being used to intimidate us and stifle our voice. And NO it is not acceptable in a functioning democracy to have 1 percent of the population hold 40 percent of the nation's wealth.
We may not yet have the solutions to the problems which we have addressed but before any problem can be fixed, one must first recognize that that there is a problem. We are here to emphatically point out those problems and vehemently refuse to keep silent and accept them.
We shall be victorious. A lie, to be accepted must be repeated a thousand times, but a truth, once spoken, echoes forever in the heart of those who recognize it
