Occupy Melbourne: evicted but victorious

The movement has already had a transformative effect on those involved. If it can continue and grow, it will definitely have an impact far greater than any small square of land that we are able to hold.

My safety concerns – you will now have to register to comment

In light of the constant stream of abuse and the fear for my safety that the level of knowledge and obsession of the abusers have about me generates, I have decided that from now on it will be necessary to register to comment on my blog.

Re-Occupy Melbourne Rally today

The real reason we Occupy Melbourne protestors were attacked is for committing the crime of standing up for the voiceless, for demanding real change, and challenging the ruling 1% in this society.

Defend democracy! Defend Occupy Melbourne!

Today over 1000 Melbournians bravely defended the right to protest when the police shut down ‘Occupy Melbourne’. Tomorrow we want the mother of all marches! 12pm at Fed Square. Let’s show the 1% that our support goes deeper than they can imagine! We are the 99%.

Rally in solidarity with Occupy Melbourne and against the power of global capitalism

A large number of police today smashed up Occupy Melbourne Rally in solidarity with Occupy Melbourne and against the power of global capitalism 12:30 Saturday 22 October Petrie Plaza

Occupy Canberra 22 October

The next Canberra Occupy Canberra demonstration is 12.30 in Petrie Plaza (near the merry go round) this Saturday 22 October.

The Queen: turn back her boat

Helping build the Occupy movement is the best way to fight for a republic. Now that really rocks my socks and hopefully will the Queen’s boat.

Demands of ruled not met by rulers

Certainly the reported turnout in Madrid of 500,000 protestors, in Times Square of up to 100,000 and in Santiago of 60,000 shows widespread anger about the inability of the system to deliver benefits to all, not just to those who own capital.

The promise of Occupy

Whatever happens from this point, Occupy has already changed the reference points of U.S. politics. No longer can the hateful, corporate-funded Tea Party claim to speak for the disgruntled majority. Working people are finding their own political voice–and they’ll no longer keep silent.

That’s why it’s so important that everyone who supports the Occupy movement get actively involved–and build the fightback.

The case for abolishing capitalism

We need to end the ability of a parasitic minority to exploit the majority. To that end, the current system has to be dismantled and replaced by a society founded on equality, in which the resources are shared and the economy planned democratically. This is what we mean by socialism.
