Breaking Down The Walls

To: All those who wish to fool us,
The long standing era of your rulership has finally begun to wane. Your Colossus of global dominion, astride from land to land, who conquers in our name, has done so for the last time.

We are the tired. Exhausted from your exploits.
We are the poor. Robbed of our futures.
We are the wretched yearning to breathe free.
We are the beaten and abused. Victims of your subjugation
We ARE the 99 percent. So take heed, we are the many and you are the very few.

We have awoken now in this new day with a perfect burning question: why have we allowed ourselves to be contented? Contented with the most menial of allotments? Exactly how is it that we have succumbed for so long to an existence of subsisting off the scraps of those we make rich?

Know this! The real power has always been with us! We built this city. We built this civilization, and not the self-aggrandized CEOs, Bankers and Politicians. Not the vendors of poverty, violence and injustice. We, the people, and not the establishment have always and exclusively been the force that has fed, clothed, sheltered, protected and healed the peoples of this earth. We erected those skyscraping monoliths, paved the roads, laid the bricks, forged the steel and set the foundations of this civilization!

Just ask yourselves, did the one percent toil as we have? Did they spill their blood, sweat and tears upon the soft earth to win their fortunes? Or have they achieved such great wealth by riding the backs of the workers? All this and to top it off they bar us from any real participation in the affairs of our civilization, our communities and indeed to an extent our very lives claiming all the while that we lack both the wisdom and the virtue to do so ourselves.

Is this the world we should be working all our lives to enjoy? Is this what our forefathers and indeed many of our peers around the world have died for? When the first peoples of this earth set out to make a better life for themselves, did they envision this? Could they imagine the people of today, who’ve laid waste to this earth for the benefit of the few? They have raped and pillaged this planet and beaten the human spirit into docile submission… until now!

Now it is time! We must set out upon this world and seize back the right to our interests here in civilization. It is time to liberate the human spirit from the bondage of war and greed, so that we may realize all our wondrous potentialities. To not only have great ideas and beautiful dreams but to possess the freedom to act upon them. A world whose only limitations are that of our individual creativity and imagination.

It is time to stop waiting for someone else to set us free. It is time for breaking down walls. It is time to heal our planet and each other. To stand as one with a voice of over seven billion, uninhibited by the geography of imaginary lines called borders.

My brothers and sisters, we struggle in order to secure a new and better future. We believe that a better world is possible and that it is in fact more probable than the continuation of the one we find ourselves in today so do not despair at the odds against us. Some people spend their entire lives waiting for something worth dying for. We are here today to create instead, a world worth living for. A world worth loving for. We gather here not to beg in protest, our global movement is far more than that. We know that for as long as there are masters there shall always be slaves. The one percent will always need us, today we stand in a new realization, that we do not need them! The revolution has begun for we are here today to celebrate the birth of a new and better world for all mankind.
