We are Occupy Atlanta. We stand in solidarity with Occupy movements around the world to oppose a system that has disenfranchised the people and has sacrificed the well-being of the many to satisfy the interests of the few. We come together in a nonviolent movement to engage in genuine democracy; to shine a light on the sources of social and economic injustice; to reclaim liberty; and to create a just system that serves the needs of all. We invite you to join us.
NOW and indefinitely
A diverse group of Atlantans have begun a non-violent extended public occupation of downtown Atlanta. The occupation is part of a national movement which started with the Occupy Wall Street resistance movement in New York City.
By joining the nationwide Occupy movement, we will focus the attention of elected officials and the voting public on the majority’s desire to take our government and country back from the big money interests which currently hold undue sway over decisions affecting us all. We are coming together in large numbers to effect this change.
Join us at our occupation site in downtown Atlanta for as much time as you feel moved to do so–an hour, a day, indefinitely. It all has an impact.
Occupy Atlanta is a grassroots movement formed in support of the Occupy Wall Street protests. We come from all walks of life. We come from all parts of the political spectrum. We come from the working class and from social justice movements past, present, and future. We are every person that is crying out for a more responsive and democratic society.
We all have come together to fight the corporate takeover of America. Our shared goal is to get the corporate money out of politics, fight for the rights of 99% of Americans who are being tyrannized by the top 1%, and bring about true democracy where every person has a voice and has a say in the process of governance.
We are a non-violent movement, accomplishing our objectives through peaceful exercise of our First Amendment rights. We will take to the streets, we will spread our message far and wide. We will not be divided or bought out, and we will not rest until the Corporatocracy lays toppled at our feet. If you doubt this is possible, look to Egypt, Tunisia, and Iceland as examples. Peaceful revolution is possible in our time. All that is required is for everyone to lay aside the petty differences that divide us, standing should-to-shoulder in solidarity on what unites us.
We are Occupy Atlanta.
We are the 99%.
We are the Revolution.
