Imagine an Occupy New Years Eve 2012

On New Years Eve in Times Square they will probably play John Lennon’s  Imagine.  It has also resonated with folks from the Occupy Wall Street movement. “Imagine” was one of the tunes sung by the small group of stalwarts who gathered at Liberty Square/Zuccotti Park for Christmas. [See story at DNA Info: here]

Below the first video are links to lots and lot of videos of Occupiers singing Imagine.

Stand in the place where you are: Peace Song for 11/15/2011

“Stand” by R.E.M. is the Peace Song of the Day for November 15th. The Duke and Duchess of Peace would like to dedicate this song to the folks occupying Liberty Square in NYC. Last night, they lost a lot of supplies, and thousands of books, because the city and the police tried to stop them from redressing their government.

Support and strength to Occupy Wall Street to stand firm at Liberty Square. Support and strength to all the occupiers, who are nobly using nonviolent action to promote democracy and social justice.

Thursday, November 17th is an International Day of Action. Folks in New York City will be trying to occupy the whole city and the subways.

Peace Song for 11/1/2011 (That was yesterday!)

There But For Fortune” by Phil Ochs is the Peace Song of the Day for November 1, 2011. Yes…I am posting this the next day, because I was recalcitrant and did not post yesterday! You can find this song on page 186 of the Rise Up Singing songbook.

This song is dedicated to the community at Liberty Square, who are dealing with an influx of homeless people and other people from the community who need support. This will be a trying time for Occupy Wall Street. Hope they will handle it with compassion and grace.
