Bank Transfer Day (I)

"Together we can ensure that these banking institutions will always remember the 5th of November!! If the 99% removes our funds from the major banking institutions to non-profit credit unions on or by 11/05, we will send a clear message to the 1% that conscious consumers won't support companies with unethical business practices.

While the Bank Transfer Day movement acknowledges the enthusiasm from Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street, the Bank Transfer Day movement was neither inspired by, derived from nor organized by Anonymous or the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the Bank Transfer Day movement does not endorse any activities conducted by Anonymous or Occupy Wall Street."

Danger, Police in Area!

Mother Jones posted this photo from Occupy Oakland protests on Tuesday night. Apparently as the OPD were going crazy with their tear gas and rubber bullets and sound cannons, someone put up this sticker on the police barricades.

Former Marine’s skull cracked at Occupy Oakland

There is also a report posted on Military Times website worth checking out:
"... former Marine Cpl. Scott Olsen, who deployed twice to Iraq with Headquarters and Service Company, 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines based out of Twentynine Palms, Calif."

Dear Washington and Wall Street,
We are the 99% and we're here to stop the machine.

Why is that we only come through in times of crisis
Can't recognize the need while we stare at our devices
See, I got the graph and I got the stats
And I got the need to keep people from the rats
More than simply a game of motivation
The idea that together we're better then evolution
Not me against you
But really an us
See, The world is our oyster
Only we can destruct
Democracy seems really cool
The idea that we give voice, even to the fool
But see that's the problem
With our system of learning
The fantastic drips down
And infects the yearning
Are we meant to play the game on even ground
Or is that the fairytale that makes the merry-go-round
Used to be tribes
Then the nation state drew borders
Every revolution comes from disrespecting orders
But I got hope
And I believe in peace
In Korea, South Asia and the Middle East

Cause the youth, yeah, we're finally here
Got a future full of love
Love without fear
Cause the youth, yeah, we're finally here
Got stand up, be proud, hold each other near

He said good morning could you raise your right hand
Step into the jurors box and take a stand
On trial are the quiet dreams of our fathers
See those dreams draw lines between us and others

Built our corporate present on them dotted lines
It's those strange shapes that seem to plague the mind
Mine and yours
An equation outdated
The prosecution suggests it be recalibrated

My patriotic dream is recast as struggle
We the people be building out of this rubble

How many more rotations about the sun
Before my brothers in arms will lay down their guns
"We the people" is beyond a battle cry
A Formula for peace and progress in our time

The current manifesto manifests too small
Promise of living is dwarfed by the wall
My aim is not guilt nor material goods
My sights on inspiration cross all latitudes
My declaration declares one thing
Creation exists in each human being

Cause the youth, yeah, we're finally here
Got a future full of love
Love without fear
Cause the youth, yeah, we're finally here
Got stand up, be proud, hold each other near

Whispers of the revolution are getting louder
on the Wall Streets and Main Streets
from New York
to Los Angeles
and around the world
See, we need the corruption and greed to end
And we need to learns respect for all of our brothers and sisters
See youth, it's a state of mind
and we preach a future full of
and progress

Cause the youth, yeah, we're finally here
Got a future full of love
Love without fear
Cause the youth, yeah, we're finally here
Got stand up, be proud, hold each other near

11 Facts You Need To Know About The Nation’s Biggest Banks

"11 Facts You Need To Know About The Nation’s Biggest Banks" appears on

To read full article please click here

Occupy armed with knowledge. Think Progress published a very informative piece about U.S. banks that everyone should read. The article includes links and facts that you never see or hear on mainstream media!

Here are some highlights:

"– Bank profits are highest since before the recession…: According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., bank profits in the first quarter of this year were “the best for the industry since the $36.8 billion earned in the second quarter of 2007.” JP Morgan Chase is currently pulling in record profits.

– Banks make nearly one-third of total corporate profits: The financial sector accounts for about 30 percent of total corporate profits, which is actually down from before the financial crisis, when they made closer to 40 percent.

– The six biggest banks hold assets equal to 63 percent of the country’s GDP: In 1995, the six biggest banks in the country held assets equal to about 17 percent of the country’s Gross Domestic Product. Now their assets equal 63 percent of GDP."

Occupy Wall Street & Beyond!

This photo says it all!
This photo was found on on October 4, 2011. We are not sure what the main source is but the important thing is how it captures the essence of what's going on in the US today.

The man in the photo is not a criminal because we know that he is one of the many in Occupy Wall Street protesters. The police officer has him pinned down with his knee, a great symbol of who the law enforcement protects. And in the meantime the mainstream media keeps telling people that nobody knows what the people are protesting! A sad state of affairs for a country that claims to be the liberators of others! How long are people going to stay ignorant is something that only time will tell. But one thing that is clear is that based on the rapid growth of the protests across the US, more of the 99% keep joining in and the government and its legislators who compose 44% of the rich- the 1%- will be forced to deal with this situation sooner rather than later.
