Statement from the Steering Committee of World Can't Wait on the Occupation of Wall St.

We in The World Can't Wait express our enthusiastic solidarity with the morally and physically courageous youth of Occupy Wall Street and all others now forming occupations in their cities. They have not resigned themselves to accepting the way the world is, but are boldly exposing the towering crimes and audacious lies of this nation’s financial and political elites. They are righteously demanding that it all end and in doing so, enduring brutal attacks by police and the corporate media’s malign neglect.

These actions are an extremely welcome development and a gust of fresh air in the suffocating and poisonous atmosphere that the major parties, the Tea Partiers, and their billionaire sponsors have been propagating and imposing, in this, the "land of the free."

On Monday, Sept. 26, Pelican Bay, California prisoners resumed a hunger strike, protesting inhumane conditions, including torture and decades long solitary confinement. We call on all people to stand with these path-blazing youth and those oppressed by our government, here and around the world. Put your energies, your funds, your thoughts, and your bodies on the line to give voice to the most exploited, ignored, and oppressed who have suffered under the U.S. government's economic, military, and social crimes here and around the globe. 

Join the occupations in opposition to the financial criminals of Wall Street, step up the resistance to demand that torture stop at Pelican Bay Prison, and support and join the October 6th Occupation of Washington, DC.

The future is unwritten, which one we get us up to us.
