Today is October 15th, 2011. In a worldwide protest against greed and corruption, hundreds of thousands of people marched and protested in over 1500 cities around the world.
Sprinter life was joined by 4 Australians and 9 Peruvians. Together we stood in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, saying
We are the 99% protesting at Chicama, Peru.
The message of Occupy Wall Street, for those of you who struggle to understand it, is simple. We are the 99%, and we’ve had enough.
Police have tried to disband the groups using various tactics. On October 14th they tried to evict the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York from Zuccotti Park. But the Mayor ordered the Police to stand Down after after 300,000+ Americans signed petitions to stop the eviction, and flooded the 311 phone networks.
This movement is too big to fail. They cannot silence the people.
The horrible media outlets in the US have tried to portray this as a movement with no cause. They say we don’t know what we want. There is no need to try and decode our motivations. To Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Shawn Hannity, and the other idiots on Fox News, it’s quite simple.

The US media, which is completely bought and paid for by US corportations, has blatantly tried to squash this movement. They refused to give it coverage. They tried to make it out to be a few anarchist hippies in a park with no legitimate cause.
But we’re still here Fox News. And we’re growing.
We’re NOT a fringe element. We’re from every walk of life.
Rich, poor, republican, democrat, white, black, brown, yellow, young, and old.
Don’t you get it bitches?
We ARE the 99%
If you still don’t know what we’re saying, let me sum it up for you….
We are the 99%. We are worldwide. And WE are too big to fail!
If you’re not already involved in this movement, please get involved. We need to seize this momentum. We CAN change. We CAN evolve.
