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.

I’m 44 Y.O. and was diagnosed HIV+ in 2006. My medication keeps me very healthy and alive. The cheapest pill I take costs $38. PER DAY. Medical just cut me off on December 10th because I’m “Too Well”. Every company I’ve found a job with has kept me under full-time so they don’t have to give me benefits.
I beat drug addiction, homelessness, and bipolar disorder against all odds only to be met with a system that tells me: “Not good enough”.
I’m HURT. I’m PISSED. And I’m The 99%
Occupy Wall St. Occupy Oakland. Occupy Everything!
