Listening is as well-well,then -listen...
as the sounds of OCCUPY! ring round one world
in every language ,challenging dictatorships
This is not the Paris Commune of 1871
This is not The French (guillotine) Revolution
This is not the Russian Revolution of 1905 nor 1918
where one million people died of starvation
nor is it Year One for Kampuchea
nor Mao's Long March where thousands died
This is not the 1968 street riots
where clashes with police became a rite and ritual
This is a peaceful occupation of public spaces
challenging elitism in every continent
with evolving critiques,and (so far)no casualties
This is a continuous worldwide demonstration
involving 100% volunteers ,representing those 99%
who otherwise find no voice ,nor choice
in corporatism/privitization and offshored employment prospects
This is a new mode,sponsored by ADBUSTERS
yet even they say it is time to move on from physical occupation
to guerrilla theater -to OCCUPY EVERYWHERE!
