    Declaration of the Occupation of Perpetual Grievance

    Declaration of the Occupation of Perpetual Grievance

    The organizers of the Wall Street takeover, calling themselves the NYC General Assembly, have issued a Declaration of the Occupation of New York City:

    The Declaration lists 20 grievances against corporations, including these examples:

    They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
    They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
    They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
    They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press. They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.
    They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantive profit.
    They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
    They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.
    They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts. *

    Note the asterisk.

    It is what makes the Declaration of Occupation a living, breathing document, because the framers want you to know:

    *These grievances are not all-inclusive.

    It is the Occupation of Perpetual Grievance.

    It would be interesting to know the background of these kids (and adults)that are protesting. Do they come from affluent families? Did they get there on a jet plane? Did they drive? Who supplied the plane? Who supplied the car? Who supplied the fuel for both? And last but not least how do they have the time from their job etc. to protest?
