National Occupation of DC

On March 30, 2012, people from across the country will gather for an American Spring in Washington, DC. The National Occupation of Washington, DC (NOW DC) opposes the corruption of both parties in conducting U.S. domestic and foreign policies. Our most precious safeguard, the Bill of Rights, has been effectively destroyed, and the Supreme Court has allowed the Constitution to be perverted. This cannot be allowed to stand unopposed. We are uniting against a corporate-controlled government which has failed abysmally to promote the public well-being, and in doing so we will demonstrate our commitment to creating a new world where the people, not the 1%, rule.

The civil resistance of NOW DC will focus on the power structure in Washington, DC. The first phase of the Occupy Movement showed that people acting in solidarity have power and can change the direction of the country. NOW DC aims to unite occupations in a focused nonviolent campaign to demonstrate to elected officials in Washington, DC, and K Street and corporate interests that the people no longer trust or accept their rule, that a radical transformation to a participatory democracy operating under the rule of law is essential.

The reign of money in government has fostered policies that throw people out of their homes and drive families into bankruptcy, impoverish whole communities, deny access to medical treatment and wage unending wars abroad. Worst of all, the policies of greed are literally destroying our planet. All this must change soon and change dramatically. The political puppets now occupying public space will not bring about this change. Only a united, courageous and enlightened public can do this.

Join us in Washington, DC, beginning on March 30 for NOW DC and Occupy Power!

You are invited to join the NOW organizing calls on InterOccupy.

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some
    experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run
    into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look
    forward to your new updates.
