Power to the people, can we occupy
Power to the eco, can we drop the line
Power to the rest of us, make it better
Power to the people, occupy your mind!
1. The profit system has imposed on us a logic of endless growth while disrespecting Mother earth, by transforming nearly everything into commodities. Our economy has been systematically depleting resources and life forms as those few who are on the receiving end of concentrated wealth force the world down a path utterly in denial of the fact that what we call growth is mostly waste and it can no longer be taken for granted that the planet’s eco-systems can sustain future generations.
2. Occupy! History has proven that real change will never come from the top, and now it’s clear that bail-outs and misguided “free market solutions” are like trying to put out a fire with more fire. Only a united movement, consisting of an awakened population, rooted completely outside of the establishment, powered by the force of quiet truth, soul force, will usher in a new reality where meaning is no longer determined by material gain and the monetary bottom line.

3. People! The outcome of this transition we face can be a beautiful higher order existence!
A socio-economic system that is democratic, egalitarian, and based on respect means that we will enjoy simpler, longer and happier lives. Living sustainably, in harmony with the laws of nature and free from the profit-only system, will lead to energy and food security on a planet with replenished biodiversity and much richer social and cultural interconnectedness.
The only solution is WORLD REVOLUTION.
