This is the eleventh communiqué from the 99 percent. We are occupying Wall Street. We will not be moved.
On September 27th, 2011, many friends participated in our democratic process.
On September 27th, 2011, we marched on the Financial District’s Luxury Night Out, where couples wore outfits that cost more than
we will ever make in a month and looked at cars that cost more than we will ever make in a year, afterward, they went back to one of their many houses that cost more than we will make in our lifetime.
Occupied Boston doesn’t need a bullhorn to have their voices heard. They have the people’s microphone.
So does Michael Moore, who addressed us tonight.
Occupied San Francisco grows larger every day.
Occupied Chicago was dispersed but not defeated. They will regroup and reoccupy.
Add your home. Make your voice heard.
We are growing. Block by block – city by city. We will see change in this country, in this world.
It will happen sooner than you can imagine.

Anyone with eyes open knows that the gangsterism of Wall Street — financial institutions generally — has caused severe damage to the people of the United States (and the world)
. And should also know that it has been doing so increasingly for over 30 years, as their power in the economy has radically increased, and with it their political power. That has set in motion a vicious cycle that has concentrated immense wealth, and with it political power, in a tiny sector of the population, a fraction of 1%, while the rest increasingly become what is sometimes called “a precariat” — seeking to survive in a precarious existence. They also carry out these ugly activities with almost complete impunity — not only too big to fail, but also “too big to jail.”
The courageous and honorable protests underway in Wall Street should serve to bring this calamity to public attention, and to lead to dedicated efforts to overcome it and set the society on a more healthy course.
