Join Virtual "Occupy Wall Street" March

occupy wall street funny sign

There are millions and millions of us who support the Occupy Wall Street protesters (and the idea that the rich should stop robbing the poor and should pay fair taxes) but cannot make it to NYC’s financial district to join in the protest. So, MoveOn.org has planned a virtual march for many of us to join in. The virtual march is on Wednesday, October 5. Here’s more from MoveOn.org:

“Join us on Wednesday to create a huge show of support for anti-Wall Street actions nationwide. Together, we’ll add hundreds of thousands of voices expressing our solidarity with the protests at Occupy Wall Street and across the country targeting the bankers who wrecked our economy.”

I just signed up. Sign up and join us on Wednesday!

    One thing we can all do is take your money out of those big disgusting conglomerate banks and put your money into locally owned Credit Unions. They are loaning money to the common man. Support them!!! Vote with your money. Be a cautious consumer.

    It’s important to note disparities in the system but it is also important to address how we as a society can agree to bring about changes to those things that grieve us and perhaps the mainstream media is right in this one respect- at the moment, no concrete plan or idea has been fostered as to how to exact changes in a very one sided system, and certainly waiting for the powers that be to come up with some watered down ideas hardly constitutes for much change, but then again at least the act of creating dissent and bringing awareness to what ails greater society is a good sign.

    Perhaps what then is needed next is a constituency of those individuals who work within media, medicine, insurance, education,finance and politics and so forth to propose ideas that will go some way in addressing the legitimate grievances of greater society-and to bring back some checking of the system and evening of the playing field. But should we hold our breath?
