This was posted on Occupy Portland's Facebook page earlier today. Marianne Williamson does an unbelievable job of laying out what I feel is the moral imperative behind Occupy, what's at stake, and what it means to truly follow the principles of nonviolent resistance...and so much more. Well worth the lengthy listen.
WE ARE HERE PROTESTING IN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST FOR GOOD REASON!

Put together a slate of candidates that are honest people drawn from the occupy movement's ranks and elect them to Congress. The first order of business is to take big money out of federal politics. Pass the Fair Elections Now Act (S. 750 and H.R. 1404). A law where political candidates for federal office would raise a large number of small contributions from their communities in order to qualify for Fair Elections funding. Contributions are limited to $100.00. Strictly voluntary by the…Continue

This is my farewell gift to you all. I believe I've given all I have to give and there are a number of you who will be glad to see me gone. May you get what you wish for!
But here's a question that may be more important than any other asked here: Who the hell are you to think you speak for the 99%? From what I've witnessed, there's some good-hearted and open-minded souls and a number of those who think they've got it all figured out and are above and beyond (more "evolved") then the…Continue
To the Creation I live within; to the creation that lives in me
Open My heart
To the rhythm of tides and seasons; to the rhythm of my own blood
Open my heart
To the footsteps before mine in the sand, of peoples and creatures
To the footsteps after mine in the…Continue

I am not all that great at putting concepts into words sometimes. Maybe my brain is just too full of school-there is no space left over to really articulate what I see, think, and feel. Fortunately for me, there are folks around who are especially talented at doing just that. This is a post written by…Continue

Very exciting to see the diversity that is the 99% in the faces of those marching this morning from Union Park to Liberty Plaza.
The unencamped Occupy now has a face of inclusion that it never had before.

This has nothing to do with the Tea Party. It's the WE, Party and it appeals to 100% of the people, 100% of the time. The …Continue

A PASTORAL LAMENT FOR MY COUNTRY
America, America, my country ‘tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing
America, oh America
America the Beautiful has fallen.
You could feel the tension and raw energy crinkling throughout the air as the marchers once again began their journey into downtown Seattle. The Occupy Movement is the prophetic voice of God calling out to the nation to “repent” and turn from its…

I had a vision of thousands and thousands marching to a gathering place in silence ( for the medtiation Gail envisions) each man woman and child carrying a sign that is a verifiable stat that describes the actual face of income disparity.
unemployment rate for blacks
number of children in chronic hunger
number of familes living in sub standard housing
number of families who have lost their home to foreclosure
avergae student loan debt
