The World Hears You Who #OccupyWallStreet #WeAreThe99%

“The huge gap between rich and poor, globally and within nations, is not only morally wrong; it is also a source of practical problems.” – Dalai Lama

As long as there are people in this world who have far more money than they need, there will be those who do not have nearly enough to meet their needs.

Those of you who occupy Wall Street and other cities, let it be known that you are heard. Word is spreading of your cause and courage to all Americans and the world. We are behind you. I have understood for some time that the mainstream media has its own agenda. Fret not. We are the new media now. You and I, we the people, are the voice to the masses. Far too often we hear, share and even witness vital issues that do not appear in the news or that are misreported by the media. This only reinforces evidence that the one percent are controlling the big media.

I suggest that you embrace this new media. In fact, I recommend that you do not even speak to members of the mainstream media who have ignored you thus far. Forget them! Leave them out of the loop. They are of no use to us and will soon be obsolete. As word spreads of your efforts, people are reading #Occupy blogs instead of newspapers. As #OccupyWallStreet videos are shared throughout the globe, people are watching Youtube instead of television news. You are reaching people directly. You are touching them through their smart phones and computers and they understand that they are getting the real news directly from its original source. They are therefore enlightened to fact that our local and national news is being censored by the one percent.

Do not be swayed or disheartened. Persevere, for more will join you as you are making history. The one percent had their chances to make things right. Now their greatest fear is coming to pass, for we have realized that we outnumber them; thus, they do not have a chance.

If you are near an Occupied city, fire up your printer and pass this out to our fellow activists. If you have the means, print all that you can (blog posts, tweets, facebook updates, twitpic photos, etc.) about the dawn of this revolution and pass it to your friends, neighbors and coworkers. If you are on staff with a college newpaper, it is time to branch out into your communities.

With eleven of you, I make a dozen. With ninety-nine of you, I make a hundred. But I cannot do it without each and every one of you. You matter! Get the word out! Post, share, tweet and re-tweet! If you follow a mainstream media source on Twitter, un-follow them. If you like one of their pages on facebook, un-like it. Unsubscribe from their publications and censored propaganda. Show them they can no longer be trusted! The time to act is now and as Louie Psihoyos said, “To me, you’re either an activist or an inactivist.”
