We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.

Brought to you by the people who occupy wall street. Why will YOU occupy?

21 y.o. college dropout, now working 12hr nightshifts and taking OT, but I am fortunate enough to be able to pay all my bills.
Racked up ~$14,000 in debt in student loans and credit card. 
I am still covered by my father’s insurance plan, as long as he can keep his job.
I am able to afford an apt. with 3 other people, but have my own car, and can buy food.
I don’t know how long it will last, my home state (Oregon) hasn’t been hit as hard as most of the country… yet. My employer is planning a minimum 3-week plant shutdown to “adjust inventory to the market”. I am saving what I can now to hopefully survive at least 3 weeks without pay. As long as I stay healthy and uninjured I can afford to live.
I grew up believing what I was told, the American Dream was available to everyone. I was fairly uninterested in politics and the working of our system until High School. Once you see the first lie, the others uncover themselves. I have never known a time in this country that was truly free and just.
All I want is my American Dream, and for everyone else to achieve theirs. 
- People should not be afraid of their governments; governments should be afraid of the people.
- When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
- Ideas are bulletproof.
I am the 99 percent, YOU are the 99 percent, and we are all very, very angry.
