America, this is your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.


#OccupyWichita is a movement created to show support of the protest resistance movement known as OccupyWallStreet (occupywallst.org). It has been created to promote unity and solidarity among the 99% of our society who remain misrepresented, disenfranchised, and exploited by those in positions of power and wealth. This is a PEACEFUL protest movement meant to raise a voice across the nation for the... majority - we who bear the brunt of decisions made for our lives - those decisions in which we feel we have no voice.

The time is now for our collective voice to be heard.

We are the employed, unemployed, and underemployed. We are the blue collar, white collar, and no collar. We are those who have bought into the American Dream only to find out it's the greatest ponzie scam ever created. We are those who have been waiting... waiting for something, someone to finally make a move - rise up and say enough is enough. Someone has, and it's one unified voice that grows louder and farther.

We cannot stress enough that this is a peaceful, autonomous protest. We do not condone any physical or verbal violence to get our point across. #OccupyWichita, as well as the many branches springing up across the nation and internationally, are designed to create a platform for those who stand in solidarity and are yet unable to join the movement in New York City. Our mission is to educate the people of Wichita and raise our unified voice. This entire movement is in its early stages, and the growth and momentum depends upon persistence. We are by no means creating an agenda. We are simply providing a platform.
"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." - Occupywallst.org

____________________________________

Something is wrong with our system. We feel powerless to fix it.

We don't have all the answers, but a system so broken that it requires the criminals that broke it in the first place to fix it is too complicated.

We have different ideologies. We have different desires.

But we want one thing. We demand one thing.

We want OUR government back.

We want a system that works for us, instead of against us. We want our elected officials to work to meet our needs. We want them to serve in the best interest of the people. If they can not serve the best interest of all of the people of this nation then they must resign.

We do not condone violent resistance. We want a peaceful resistance. A show of force, sheer numbers, demonstrating unity.

We out number those working against us. Let's show them that. NOW.

Open thread: Ask not what billionaires can do for you, ask what you can do for billionaires

Austerity Nut rides the New York City subways preaching the virtues of budget cuts, and the need for working-class sacrifice for the sake of our suffering brothers and sisters on Wall Street. He reminds riders, “Ask not what the billionaires in your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country’s billionaires.”
