“The campaign to “move your money” has gotten a groundswell of support. Having greater impact would be to “move our money” — move our local government revenues out of Wall Street banks into our own publicly-owned banks.
“Occupy Wall Street has been both criticized and applauded for not endorsing any official platform. But there are unofficial platforms, including one titled the 99% Declaration which calls for a “National General Assembly” to convene on July 4, 2012 in Philadelphia. The 99% Declaration seeks everything from reining in the corporate state to ending the Fed to eliminating censorship of the Internet. But none of these demands seems to go to the heart of what prompted Occupiers to camp out on Wall Street in the first place – a corrupt banking system that serves the 1% at the expense of the 99%. To redress that, we need a banking system that serves the 99%.
“Occupy San Francisco has now endorsed a plan aimed at doing just that.”
“The Department of Homeland Security aided Jamaican authorities in massacring 73 civilians as part of a botched drug raid conducted with the help of a DHS surveillance aircraft – before attempting to cover up the atrocity by refusing to release the footage.”
“At the DEA’s insistence, Jamaican authorities reluctantly raided Tivoli Gardens, the West Kingston slum (Christopher) Coke ran as a de facto governor, two years ago. Coke didn’t turn up, but Jamaican police officers killed 73 civilians, many of them allegedly in cold blood. A Department of Homeland Security surveillance plane was overhead the whole time,” reports Gawker.
“Writing for the New Yorker, Mattathias Schwartz reveals how most of Coke’s gunmen disappeared almost instantly, before police proceeded to go door to door carrying out summary executions of innocent villagers.
Amidst the massacre, a Homeland Security surveillance plane circled overhead, providing Jamaican authorities with real-time intelligence and surveillance footage.” …
A 12-year-old Texas boy testified before Congress that he was drugged for four years with multiple anti-psychotic medications while in the state foster system. The boy, identified only as Ke’onte, recalled that the drugs left him “in a stupor” and physically ill.
The child’s ordeal was revealed when a Government Accountability Office report was released pointing to the failure of the federal government to protect foster children. The report stated that foster children were up to 13 times more likely to be prescribed anti-psychotics and anti-depressants than other children.
Ke’onte told legislators that being drugged was “the worst thing anyone could do to foster kids.” He lost his appetite because of the medication and felt so exhausted “I would collapse wherever I was in the house.” The drugs also interfered with his mental abilities: “My foster parents would tell me something, and I wouldn’t be able to process it,” the child told members of a Congressional subcommittee.
The boy was prescribed the medications after being misdiagnosed with ADHD and bipolar syndrome. During his testimony he recalled a history of pharmaceutical abuse at the hands of the state: “I’ve been in the mental hospital three times during foster care, and every time I had to get on more meds or new meds to add to the ones I was already taking.” The child was in the foster care system for four years of his life.
Antipsychotics are designed to shut down the forebrain, a chemical lobotomy.
