Below is the official Occupy Wall Street/OWS video to thank supporters. This video was passed by consensus through the New York City General Assembly/NYCGA on Tuesday, December 20, 2011. It is posted at occupywallst.org.
“How Does A Patriot Act?“, by Sonny Meadows is the Peace Song of the Day for December 5, 2011. This song questions the true nature of patriotism, and celebrates acts of courage, protest, and civil disobedience.
“Take It From Dr. King”, by Pete Seeger, is The Peace Song of the Day for November 12th. This song is the ultimate celebration of nonviolent activism for social change. It tells the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, the bus boycott, and The Civil Rights movement. It also has the somewhat tense, but poignantly necessary line, “Drop the gun.”
Occupy Wall Street is going into its fourth week. Kimberly and Ian Wilder of Peace Couple went to support the occupation today. They brought donations and their handheld camera. Hope you enjoy seeing some of the energy and spirit of this people’s movement to create more peace and justice in the world.
