It’s not pitchfoks and shovels, this time.
What started as a ragtag bunch of peaceful protesters on Wall Street, has now blossomed into a worldwide Occupy Movement. When people around the world started to see the peaceful assembly being attacked and peaceful, unarmed protesters being brutalized by “public servants” who are supposed to “serve and protect” them, more and more supported them. Veterans showed up, to help protect them. A worldwide movement is now in full swing, with countries as far away as both Egypt and Israel, marching in solidarity with U.S. protesters who have been brutalized beyond belief.
One such protester, US Marine Scott Olsen, survived two tours in Iraq, only to come home and get hit in the head by an Oakland Police “projectile” and suffered brain injury to the speech center of his brain. His crime? Simply peacefully assembling. He is said to have “provoked no one” and footage of the incident shows there was no cause for police to abuse their power so forcefully that night.
Think about that one for a minute. Injured like this. Suffering brain damage to the speech center of his brain.
It’s enough to leave anyone speechless.
People have the right, in America, to free assembly. Without being pepper sprayed.
The world is watching, as cable news proves how irrelevant they are as a “news” source.
It’s all over the internet.
Do not let them silence your voice. Do not let them silence your vote. It is the only thing we have that is more powerful than all of them.
It couldn’t hurt.
These brands are manufactured by Georgia-Pacific, owned by Koch Industries. I haven’t considered buying Brawny or Angel Soft for many years – since recycled paper products appeared on the shelves. My personal boycott had nothing to do with oil-industry billionaires Charles and David Koch, whose leviathan energy conglomerate purchased Georgia-Pacific in December, 2005. Frankly, I’d never heard of the Koch brothers before they were revealed as the Tea Party’s financial backers.
