The Occupy movement is gearing up for general strike on May 1. I was handed this by one of the movement's members outside my office today on Wall Street. Here is an excerpt:
|"The questions are simple. Why does a small group of humanity reap the efforts of billions? Why can this elite group poison the planet to further enrich themselves? Why do we accept a soulless social order built around the concept of people staying in line? Why do we allow armed police to beat and cage us if we step off that line?"|
Take some time to read the rest. I think it's worth it. There are some well written thoughts.
