Breaking News: People's Occupation of Wa. DC until Machine stops
Occupation of Washington DC
Human rights defender David Swanson has announced today that this October, thousands of Americans, the left and right, will occupy Washington D.C. in peaceful resistance and not leave until demands of the government are met. The protest is slated to be similar to those in Tunisia and Egypt.
A coalition of organizations and noted leaders have committed to a peaceful occupation of Washington DC, announcing the plan for a people's occupation of Washington, D.C. starting October 6th and not leaving until the United States government is seen to halt functioning on behalf of Wall Street and a war machine.
While people in Afghanistan protest The U.S. bombing of homes, Americans "sit inside our own homes complaining about our economy, our banks, our schools," stated David Swanson, adding:
"Instead, we now have a chance to have a say, in solidarity with others around the world, with success just as likely -- if just as shocking to those in power -- as with past U.S. people's movements and the recent advances in Tunisia and Egypt."
