“Every now and then in history, the human race takes a collective step forward in its evolution. Such a time is upon us now.”
–Renowned water/environmental activist (and Global Exchange ally) Maude Barlow
As we ring in 2012, let the revolution begin! From Tunisia to New York, from Spain and Greece to Oakland and ‘Occupies’ everywhere, people have taken to the streets to reclaim what is rightfully ours.
We the 99% seek more than the illusion of democracy… we want government in the hands of the people, not the corporations. We want just, fair, sustainable policies that benefit the majority — not only the wealthy few.We will no longer stand by and allow banks, oil companies or our political system to place corporate interests above our shared values of justice, equality, good jobs and vibrant, resilient communities and ecosystems. We’re speaking out everywhere to deliver the message: Enough is Enough!
People across the world are saying enough is enough with the global economic and environmental crisis, and we are responding with a massive outpouring of activism and energy. Together we are changing the rules and creating a world that champions people power not corporate power, builds positive alternatives and promotes human rights, peace and democracy.
