It only takes one person to refuse.
It only takes one person to resist.
If one domino says “Oh, fuck that” and steps out of line, the world can start to change.
What unfair bullshit have you cooperated with this week?
What unfair bullshit will you refuse to cooperate with next week?

It only takes one person to refuse.

It only takes one person to resist.

If one domino says “Oh, fuck that” and steps out of line, the world can start to change.

What unfair bullshit have you cooperated with this week?

What unfair bullshit will you refuse to cooperate with next week?

[UC Davis police lieutenant John Pike fires sub-lethal chemical weapons at peaceful protesters as they sit on the sidewalk]
“I want to be very clear in calling upon the Egyptian authorities to refrain from any violence against peaceful protesters. The people of Egypt have rights that are universal. That includes the right to peaceful assembly and association, the right to free speech, and the ability to determine their own destiny. These are human rights. And the United States will stand up for them everywhere.” — Barack Obama, 28 January 2011

Maxx Klaxon visits Foley Square:

  
We were only at the big protest tonight for a short time — we had to squeeze it in between work and another event we were going to. But it was very intense and very positive… notwithstanding a mind-bogglingly large army of police deployed for blocks around in literal phalanxes, numerous barricaded, streets, groups of cops on horseback, and at least 4 helicopters hovering stationary overhead. The sense that the powers that be are extremely fearful and suspicious of all this was palpable. But the mood on the streets was joyous. There were major student and union components to the march today. At one point there were people rapping over the PA about occupying Wall Street.If OWS appeared dead after Bloomberg’s middle-of-the-night raid, this was the resurrection.


 Not to get all Jedi, but by striking it down he may have made it more powerful than he could have possibly imagined.

Thirteen Observations made by Lemony Snicket while watching Occupy Wall Street from a Discreet Distance

1. If you work hard, and become successful, it does not necessarily mean you are successful because you worked hard, just as if you are tall with long hair it doesn’t mean you would be a midget if you were bald.

2. “Fortune” is a word for having a lot of money and for having a lot of luck, but that does not mean the word has two definitions.

3. Money is like a child—rarely unaccompanied. When it disappears, look to those who were supposed to be keeping an eye on it while you were at the grocery store. You might also look for someone who has a lot of extra children sitting around, with long, suspicious explanations for how they got there.

4. People who say money doesn’t matter are like people who say cake doesn’t matter—it’s probably because they’ve already had a few slices.

5. There may not be a reason to share your cake. It is, after all, yours. You probably baked it yourself, in an oven of your own construction with ingredients you harvested yourself. It may be possible to keep your entire cake while explaining to any nearby hungry people just how reasonable you are.

6. Nobody wants to fall into a safety net, because it means the structure in which they’ve been living is in a state of collapse and they have no choice but to tumble downwards. However, it beats the alternative.

7. Someone feeling wronged is like someone feeling thirsty. Don’t tell them they aren’t. Sit with them and have a drink.

8. Don’t ask yourself if something is fair. Ask someone else—a stranger in the street, for example.

9. People gathering in the streets feeling wronged tend to be loud, as it is difficult to make oneself heard on the other side of an impressive edifice.

10. It is not always the job of people shouting outside impressive buildings to solve problems. It is often the job of the people inside, who have paper, pens, desks, and an impressive view.

11. Historically, a story about people inside impressive buildings ignoring or even taunting people standing outside shouting at them turns out to be a story with an unhappy ending.

12. If you have a large crowd shouting outside your building, there might not be room for a safety net if you’re the one tumbling down when it collapses.

13. 99 percent is a very large percentage. For instance, easily 99 percent of people want a roof over their heads, food on their tables, and the occasional slice of cake for dessert. Surely an arrangement can be made with that niggling 1 percent who disagree.
