Subject:   [september17discuss] occupywallst.org: revolution, not a riot, revolution
 

Hey guys-- so the coverage on the website is great--

However, I would like to strongly suggest that the language from the "we are 99 percent" flyer be the post on the front page for tomorrow morning, I have posted an example with links on my tumblr: http://grimwomyn.tumblr.com/post/10643247214/wearethe99-and-we-occupywallstreet it's great coz it brings together all of the press in one place as people are reading the post, and it gives a lot of sources for sharing and further research....

You know, an equal mix of information about the motivations for the occupation, and police actions, which do garner sympathy and headlines, but might scare people away.... if you want to lift the post entirely, please do... it is from the flyer circulated yesterday, if you would like me to post the writer, let me know... I think later this week a new post about wealth inequality would be great. I bet if we asked we could get Cornel West, Michael Moore, or Senator Bernie Sanders to write one since they have been so openly supportive of the movement.

Most people have not been exposed to think about how the system does not work for them, they just know it doesn't work. It should be our mission to educate through the channels we have available. These channels are also the greatest tools for research and education. People need to be able to understand in totem how the system has failed, and they are not getting that information through the MSM as we well know.

Just some Sunday thoughts, I hope all of you are safe warm and fed.
