FREE Occupy Wall Street Bumper Sticker October 20, 2011

From Democracy for America:

One of the most powerful things about the Occupy Wall Street movement is that it’s leaderless.

No one person or organization controls it, drives it or can take credit for the movement that’s continuing to build everyday. Most importantly, that also means no one person or organization can stop it.

That’s why big corporations and their right-wing allies are freaking out. They’re scared of the movement that’s sweeping the country because they know it’s real. It’s organic. And it has the power to win because it’s clear we’re not going away until change happens to improve the lives of the 99%.

Here at DFA, we know that it’s not our job to try to take over this movement or take credit for its work. We’re here to help grow and support the work that people across the country are doing organically. So, when thousands of DFA members started writing in to ask us to make “We are the 99 percent” bumper stickers so they could show their support, we knew we had to do it.

Thanks, Joss!

Go 99! If 1% will listen, they can choose to live differently. If 1% will not listen, it risks becoming one amongst one hundred. Mercy is alive and well: 1 could not survive being 99. It has a chance at 100.

nrhatch - October 20, 2011

Here’s hoping that they LISTEN UP! This is the FUTURE we’re talking about!

6. Paula Tohline Calhoun - October 20, 2011

Sounds great, but I have no idea who DFA is – I’ll look them up and probably get a sticker! 😆

nrhatch - October 20, 2011

DFA = Democracy For America. 😀

Paula Tohline Calhoun - October 21, 2011

that part I knew – just wondering about the organization and who/what is behind it!

nrhatch - October 21, 2011

The link above takes you to the website with all the information. They’re based in Burlington VT.

Paula Tohline Calhoun - October 22, 2011

Based in Burlington? Then I’m with ’em! Ah! Vermont! My favorite of all the states we’ve lived in so far! 😆

nrhatch - October 22, 2011

That’s why I mentioned Vermont . . . I know you view the politicians there as a cut above the rest.

Me too.

7. Booksphotographsandartwork - October 20, 2011

Cool!

nrhatch - October 21, 2011

I love the organic nature of this movement. Here’s hoping that positive change is coming to our shores.

8. Tilly Bud - October 21, 2011

Sounds more like anarchy than democracy 🙂

nrhatch - October 21, 2011

Hmm . . . the youth riots in London were anarchy.

Most of these 99% gatherings are peaceful sit ins protesting the status quo. The right to peacefully assemble is one of the cornerstones of our democracy.

Here’s hoping we don’t have to throw another Tea Party in Boston Harbor to get our point across. 😉

9. adeeyoyo - October 21, 2011

I think it’s wonderful that the people are waking up at last to how they’ve been used. Great work, Nancy.

nrhatch - October 21, 2011

I agree, Adee. The peaceful protests are helping individuals to share information about WHERE we are and HOW we got here.

In time, we will see WHERE we want to be and HOW to get from here to there.

10. Debra - October 21, 2011

Signed up and shared.

thanks Nancy, i was wondering how to get a sticker.:)

Everyone I know is 99%. It is about time we realize ‘we ARE people’ .

be well

nrhatch - October 21, 2011

Thanks, Debra. This goverment “OF the people, BY the people, FOR the people” got off track ~ railroaded by lobbyists, corporations, and big businesses.

Time to get it back on track so that we can chug into the future.

11. SidevieW - October 22, 2011

the occupy movement is just a part of the world changes coming. hopefully to a more sane world for all

nrhatch - October 22, 2011

That’s my thought too, Sidey. Times they are a changing ~ maybe we’ll find an even keel in the not too distant future.

I’d love to see a better world take shape in my lifetime.

12. William D'Andrea - October 22, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street Movement is often compared with the early days of the Tea Party. I see a significant difference. Members of the Tea Party actually spoke to the Senators and Congressmen they disagreed with face to face.

I don’t see the Occupiers speaking face to face with any businessmen, bankers, executives, etc. If they did, both sides might actually be able to come to some understanding, and work things out. That is what they should be doing. Americans should be working together to fix the economy, not turning against one another.

nrhatch - October 22, 2011

I think they are doing just fine.

After all, the GREEDY bankers didn’t bother talking to US before absconding with billions of dollars to feather their nests. 😉

William D'Andrea - October 22, 2011

I just don’t see what the Occupiers expect to accomplish. Do they want to “Bring down the system”, and impose some kind of 19th Utopian fantasy upon us? Do they want us all living at a subsistance level, on collective farms, while listening to recordings of John Lennon’s “Imagine” played endlessly, with no expectation of anything else?

I’m not saying that is their goal, I’m just wondering exactly what it is that they want to bring about.

nrhatch - October 22, 2011

I can’t speak for them, but some of the things that I think we need to work on:

* Reduce the federal deficit.
* Preserve conservation programs.
* Invest in wildlife and natural resources.
* Develop a cleaner, greener economy.
* Close loopholes for oil and gas corporations.
* End subsidies to polluters.
* Stop supporting programs that harm the environment.
* Tax the RICH . . . they can afford it.
* Elect responsible leadership.
* Get rid of career politicians.

A good overview:

In it, Keith Boykin sum up what they want beautifully:

I found many different people gathered in Zuccotti Park with many different interests and agendas, but they seem to be unified by one common purpose. They’re tired of a system that seems only to cater to the rich and powerful while ignoring the concerns of the vast majority of Americans.
