Are you drowning in debt that never goes away? Are you facing the real possibility of eviction and homelessness? Are you worried that the social programs you depend on will get cut in the name of austerity? Let the 1 percent know by taking part in the 99 Percent Project. Make a sign. Write your circumstance at the top, no longer than a single sentence. Examples:
"I am a student with $25,000 in debt."
"I need surgery and I’m more worried about the expense than my health."
"I’m a homeowner who’s about to face foreclosure."
Below that, write “I am the 99 percent.”
Below that, write “OccupyTogether”
Then, take a picture of yourself holding the sign and submit it to us. The 99 percent have been set against each other, fighting over the crumbs the 1 percent leaves behind. But we’re all struggling. We’re all fighting. It’s time we recognize our common struggles, our common cause. Be part of the 99 percent and let the 1 percent know you’re out there.
