I want to outline a few key things about our Occupation of our country, our land.
We must protest in solidarity with our fellow citizens across the country. We must be unified. Fractured we are weak, but when we use the power we have in our voices, and combine them, we can be heard around the world. We can shake the foundations of hegemony that still exist today.
We, here in Iowa City must protest as the people across the country, and contribute to the voting for demands (down below) so that we CAN and ARE protesting in solidarity. Be unified, don't stand alone.
Demand to be heard.
Learn about Occupy Wall Street by going to their website: Occupy Wall St
Vote on the demands by going to this website, also, go here to learn about the demands and why people are protesting. Find out if you agree or disagree, and then let your voice be heard! That is the most important thing. Making your voice heard, because if you tell no one what you want, they will never give it to you and you will never get it.

The protests are escalating, police are becoming violent with protesters:
Here is a news station from the NY area reporting on the same situation: http://www.myfoxny.com//dpp/news/occupy-wall-street-protest-broadens-scope-20111005
Here is a picture of the cop who was involved:
There is a General Assembly tomorrow night Thursday October 5th! Come! We'll be talking about logistics and teams needed. If you have any skills, media, medical, law, advocacy, etc., food, water, comfort! Contribute!
Peace & Love,
