PLEASE UNDERSTAND: This movement is a NATIONAL movement that is an extension of what has been transpiring across the globe. It is NOT and will NOT be the responsibility of any one small group to list specific "Demands and/or goals". If you wanted to boil it down to one main goal, it would be to break the Oligarchy that has form in Washington D.C and Wall Street and to STOP them from lying, cheating and stealing our country from us. The way we will break that bond is by standing in unity in cities and towns across the country, indeed across the world and demanding a STOP to it.
The problrms facing the U.S. today stem from two primary sources that have formed a relationship of convenience. Both GOVERNMENT and CORPORATE AMERICA working in conjunction with one another are responsible for the dire state of the U.S. and in many instances, world economies, and neither is doing anything to fix it.
KEEP IN MIND: This is a grassroots movement that is in it's infancy. The seeds are being planted today. It is unrealistic to expect or demand fruit today. What is clear is that we have risen. We want the change we were promised and never received. We want a government that actually works for the people. We want a SEPARATION OF CORPORATIONS AND STATE in the exact same way as we have a separation of church and state. We want to STOP the unjust oppression before it is too late, and it will soon be too late.
The specific goals of this movement, and it is a national movement not any one city, will emerge with time. What is clear now is that the lines have been drawn and we have had enough. The "silent majority" will NO LONGER remain silent to the repression they are being force fed by the fascist government/corporate relationship that has brought the world to it's knees and is proffering NO solutions. There is strength in numbers and we have the numbers, all it takes to succeed in changing things is for people to rise up and do something.
It is oversimplifying for the media to ask "What is our one demand?" when there are currently so many things wrong with this country. Over the years the government and corporate america have formed an intricate, complex relationship that has brought the America's poor, the middle class and the world to it's knees. It has resulted in a blatant inequity in the ways the laws of this country are applied. It has completely shut down our governments ability to function properly. There are a myriad of issues that MUST be addressed and there will be a myriad of "demands".
''If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.''
