Movements for Change Join Forces on National Day of Action

Thursday, November 17th, was declared National Day of Action and on that day, MoveOn.org organized a rally to the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta. The event was called “We Are The 99%”. I was hoping to see Occupy Atlanta at the event and I was told by members of MoveOn.org that they they were expected to come although no formal announcement had been made. I also learned that Occupy Atlanta had been busy with several events that day and that during the last event to protest against rising tuition fees, 7 were arrested.

Despite another clash with the police, Occupy Atlanta was able to meet MoveOn.org 45 minutes after the event had started at the Capitol. Their presence brought valuable energy.

Great speeches delivered by Litiana Bakhtiari (at the end of the video) and Brittany Gondolfi contributed to the excitement and sense of unity shared during the “We Are The 99 %” event.

Did You Know That

Since 1995, just 10 percent of subsidized American farms -- the largest and wealthiest operations -- have raked in 74 percent of all subsidy payments. Yet, only a tiny fraction of the farm bill funding goes to programs that support healthy fruits and vegetables.
