From "Occupy Wall Street" to "Occupy Together", A Start of Global Revolution?

American people, with the participation of every person, and every organization, that has an interest in returning the US back into the hands of it's individual citizens have answered the call "Occupy Wall St." with solidarity.

On September 17th, men and women of all races, backgrounds, political and religious beliefs, began to organize in nonviolent protest. These men and women represent the 99% with the goal of ending the greed and corruption of the wealthiest 1% of America. Occupy Wall Street is a leaderless resistance movement which began as a call to action from Adbusters, a Canadian-based anti-consumerist organization.

The original projections for the protest were to be between 20,000–90,000 participants. However, when only a little over a thousand protestors showed up the first day, it was labeled a bust. In the days to follow, more and more people have joined the protestors as they spend day and night in Liberty Square.

As stated by Occupy Wall Street:

“The beauty of this new formula, and what makes this novel tactic exciting, is its pragmatic simplicity: we talk to each other in various physical gatherings and virtual people’s assemblies … we zero in on what our one demand will be, a demand that awakens the imagination and, if achieved, would propel us toward the radical democracy of the future … and then we go out and seize a square of singular symbolic significance and put our asses on the line to make it happen.”

"Our nation, our species and our world are in crisis. The US has an important role to play in the solution, but we can no longer afford to let corporate greed and corrupt politics set the policies if our nation."

"We, the people of the United States of America, considering the crisis at hand, now reassert our sovereign control of our land."

The leaders of this movement are the everyday people participating in the occupation using a tool called the "General Assembly" to facilitate open, participatory and horizontal organizing between members of the public. People from all colors, genders and beliefs are welcome to participate in their daily assemblies.

Could this be the start of a global revolution?
