Occupy Wall Street began as a call to march against economic policy in the U.S., particularly in regard to Big Business collusion with government and funding in politics. The failure to bring to justice those who are responsible for the economic crisis that has crippled our citizens is not acceptable. We demand accountability.
The Occupy Wall Street movement stands behind a call to the 99%, those of us who are not among the wealthiest 1% of our nation who wield political and financial power in the U.S, are now standing and demanding to be heard.
Occupy Kansas City stands in Solidarity with those Occupying in NYC at Liberty Park. The diversity of those occupying is the strength. We are all the 99%. We are proud to come together to voice our dissatisfaction and demand accountability, no matter the difference of our political backgrounds, heritage, and personal choices. As individuals we come together, for our strength is in our numbers.
Please join us and support the occupation when you can. You are always welcome, your voice is valuable, your story is important. We stand with and for you. We are the 99%!
The unemployment rate in the U.S. is at 9.1% and it is 8.5% in Kansas City. (http://bls.gov/web/metro/laummtrk.htm)
The source of our economic problems began with Wall Street and the collusion of Big Business and Government. We demand accountability for the state of affairs in the Unites States.
