Eight years ago, on February 15, 2003, upwards of 15 million people in sixty countries marched together to stop President Bush from invading Iraq … a huge chunk of humanity lived for one day without dead time and glimpsed the power of a united people’s movement.
That didn’t work out too well. President George W. Bush kept going with his blind resolution to invade Iraq. He did it and, in the process, he basically nuked the economy in the USA (And the whole world), inflating the public debt beyond any limit, and making the recovery from this crisis extremely difficult, for the actual and any future president.
On October 29, on the eve of the G20 Leaders Summit in France, people of the world rose up and demanded that our G20 leaders immediately impose a 1% #ROBINHOOD tax on all financial transactions and currency trades. People sent them a clear message: We want you to slow down some of that $1.3-trillion easy money that’s sloshing around the global casino each day – enough cash to fund every social program and environmental initiative in the world.
This is what #OCCUPYTOGETHER should talk about!
