    Bill Ayers Statement on Occupy Wall Street 

    What follows is the first official, collective statement of the protesters in Zuccotti Park:

    As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

    As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

    They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
    They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.
    They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
    They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
    They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide these practices.
    They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.
    They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
    They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.
    They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.
    They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
    They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
    They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.
    They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.
    They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.
    They have donated large sums of money to politicians, who are responsible for regulating them.
    They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
    They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives or provide relief in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantial profit.
    They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
    They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.
    They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.
    They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.
    They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.
    They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government ontracts.*

    To the people of the world, We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.

    Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

    To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

    Join us and make your voices heard!

    Do these people understand patent laws?  Or the law in general?  Illegal foreclosure due to not being the original bank?  Sorry, but if another buys a bank they attain your mortgage.  There are things in the small print of any legal contract about the buying and selling of loans.  You signed on the dotted so you agreed to it.  Used the military to forgo freedom of the press?  Where does this stuff come from? 

    The really sad part is that people on all sides of the political aisle could come together on some of these issues.  But they have to make it about things that have no business being in the realm of the federal government. 

    It is quite amusing that they have decided to go with Bill Ayers to come up with a unified voice of what they are after.  If he doesn’t get his away will he start setting of bombs again?

    You may find it as interesting as I did that no where on his site does he mention his time in the Weather Underground or about his arrest record for his bombings.

      Well, well, well, I was wondering how long it would be before he showed up. This is not a good sign.

        Between B.A. and the unions, this is going to get “off message” and turn really ugly within a week !

      Finding a grain of truth in this list is like trying to pick up a dime wearing ski mittens. Not happening !

      THEY, they, they did this to us…no accountability and no I, I, I, take credit for anything…typical for those of this mindset.
