I am the 99% - I am a good man who has been taken to the edge of sanity by the world I live in. a world where people are rewarded disproportionately to their contribution to their fellow man. a world where a soccer player can earn enough in a week to buy a house, but where a nurse who saves and nurtures the lives of others is made to survive on a subsistence wage. I am the 99% and the time has come for us to take back our world.

is the movement slowing down? how come its not being talked about as much as last year?

Because a successful movement that challenges corporate power is not something that the corporate media wants to report.

How do we protest a college in St. Petersburg that sells and encourages a 4 yr degree program in radiology which required a 2.75 g.p.a. and I hold a 3.50 now going into the last semester, switched up their requirement to 3.75 Disqualifing me from entering the degree program. Obama's generous student loan and grant program put me 30,000 U.S.D. in debt. The college does not want to facilitate the increased demand in fear there would be empty classrooms after the new regieme.

Reach out to this guy: http://www.ag.arkansas.gov/contact_us.html he is trying to lead a national effort against for profit colleges- perhaps your story can make the difference. http://www.khozradio.com/13699/congress_asked_to_change_rule_on_forprofit_colleges.html

I earn 1700$ a month after taxes. Half my income is from working 15 hours a week as a student assistant in research. The other half is government support for my education. When my last bill is paid, I have a 1000$.  I am studying a master’s degree in social science at the university for free. I do pay 40-45% in taxes and groceries are 30-50% more expensive than in the US. I do have government subsidized student loans.   

Monthly I donate money to charities, and I’ve recently starting paying back my loans, due to an increased income from work. My real wage was cut 1% this year, but I’ll make it. I only pay for 50% of the cost for my medicine for a chronic illness, and I have free healthcare. A broken leg will only cost me the price of painkillers.   

In my country’s economic and social context I am far from rich. I can go to the cinema, maybe travel, buy healthy food, and I can go out. I am far but privileged. I am a regular student with a part time job. I am not lucky. This is the results of my parents and their parents’ struggle for economic justice, and a welfare society with equal opportunities. My country is not going bankrupt. In spite of economic crises it has a strong economy, and we do quite well. 
This is the result of a struggle for human dignity and social and economic justice – not good luck. I live in what American pundits call a socialist nightmare.

I feel for the people of the US, Greece and the 99%. I support your struggle, politically and economically. In Denmark I am the 99%. I hope you one day can be as privileged as me.
