Beginning Tuesday May 1st, Occupy Protestors will begin their “31 magical days,” a month-long movement taking effect in cities around the world as the 2012 NATO summit approaches. 50,000 protestors are expected to assemble in Chicago’s Grant Park, and according to a blog post titled, “The May 2012 Insurrection,” the Occupy movement will be armed with the following message:
“[We will tell] the military elites there to stop their saber rattling against Iran, halt the global arms race and get behind what the majority of the people on Earth want: a nuclear-free world starting with a nuclear-free Middle East that includes both Iran and Israel.”
For the next month, this blog will conduct a series of articles and videos chronicling the event, hearing the voice of the movement planning to stand strong and fight for “a world run by the people, not corporations.”
But your own voice is just as important. Do you feel the message sent by Occupy has a chance of not only reaching the ears of world leaders, but influencing the decisions which impact our future? Or are they wasting their efforts towards a goal that can’t be reached? Do you even fully understand the message Occupy sends out?
Please take a moment to listen to the audio instructions and answer the poll below. Feel free to leave a comment and let your own voice be heard.
