Members of Occupy Wall Street and Occupy New Haven are currently in Florida preparing for the cross-country Occupy Bus Tour. We have a bus currently being converted to run veggie oil, and soon to be outfitted with solar panels. As well, we have a camping trailer we are fixing up. We plan on going to actions across the country serving food, providing street medic services, distributing revolutionary information and books, hosting teach-ins, and generally occupying wherever we go.
One of the places we will be going is Texas in order to help their blockade of the Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline. The exploitation of the Tar Sands is insane by any standard, and must be stopped. “We have been too kind to those who are killing the planet. We have been inexcusably, unforgivably, insanely kind. (Derrick Jensen)” No more, yo! Those who are actively engaged in, or supporting, polluting the biosphere are committing a violent crime against every human on the planet. It is time to recognize that the criminals are the power elite, and it is time for the people to rise up to save the lives of our future generations. It is time to save the species from the violence, the cruelty and the insanity of the rich. It is a matter of the survival of the fittest, not the richest.
