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 am the former lead singer of a 60’s band THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS. I performed before thousands at Atlanta Pop2, Miami Pop, Newport Pop, Atlantic pop. I didn’t squander my money on drugs or a million dollar home. I went from 1967-1994 before I saw my first royalty check from a music giant I recorded 7 albums with. I have NEVER seen a penny in royalties from the other 10 albums I recorded. Our hit song was licensed to over 100 films, tv, & commercials WITHOUT our permission. One of the major tv network used our song for a national commercial and my payment was only $625. I am now 72 and am trying to live on $1200 a month. SWEET RELIEF, a music charity is taking donations for me. Only the 1% rich artists can afford to sue. I AM ONE OF THE 99%
