... and all others forming occupations in the Bay Area and beyond. They have not resigned themselves to accepting the way the world is, but are boldly exposing the towering crimes and audacious lies of this nation's financial and political elites.
Their actions are an extremely welcome development and a gust of fresh air in the suffocating and poisonous atmosphere that the major parties, the Tea Partiers, and their billionaire sponsors have been propagating and imposing, in this, the "land of the free."
We protest all the crimes of a system that relies on war, torture, unmanned drone attacks, secret operations and police brutality to maintain Empire in the interest of America's richest 1%.
And call on all people to stand with these path-blazing youth and those oppressed by our government, here and around the world. Put your energies, your funds, your thoughts, and your bodies on the line to give voice to the most exploited, ignored, and oppressed who have suffered under the U.S. government's economic, military, and social crimes here and around the globe.
The future is unwritten... which one we get is up to us.
