October 15 - Freedom Plaza everywhere
October 15, 2011 has been declared a global day of revolution. All over the world, people will stand together to end the corruption and power of the economic elite. We will stand for a new world that is peaceful, just and sustainable.
United National Antiwar Committee (UNAC) has been calling for local actions on October 15th to stand for an end to war and to use our resources instead for human needs. October2011 has been supporting their call to action.
The October 15 solidarity actions now have even greater significance in light of the actions happening around the world.
The October2011 Movement chose Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC for several reasons. It is located between the White House and Congress and close to the Chamber of Commerce and K St, where many other corporate lobbyists have their offices. The name is similar to the Plaza where protests happened in Egypt (Tahrir or "Liberation" Square).
We encourage as many people as possible to come to Washington, DC for the October 6 action. Our numbers are important to effectively stop the machine, corporatism and militarism, and create a new world, one that is peaceful, just and sustainable. For those who cannot be in DC on October 15th, you can be part of this historic day of world revolution by creating your own Freedom Plaza in your community.
You can learn more about the global actions below the video. Please let firstname.lastname@example.org know if you are planning a solidarity action. And you can post your actions on the UNAC website.
The economic elite have the money. However, we outnumber them. Through protest, nonviolent action and building democratized institutions, we will put human needs above corporate profit. We can solve our crises with evidence-based and just solutions. We can bring dignity to ourselves, our country and the world. Join the World rEvolution.
