“The Labor Movement has been kicked around now for quite a while and they have to fight. They see people fighting, and they see they are fighting the same enemy. This (Occupy) movement has show such an eagerness to reach out to the mainstream of the American public- and the Unions represent the organized part of that… The focus on the 1% and the first time in an American movement (I don’t think even in the 1930’s that the communist party did this in their mass work. I don’t think even they identified the enemy as the ruling class.” – Jackie DiSalvo | Occupy Wall Street Organizer

This is not amateur hour. This is a movie as well made as any Hollywood blockbuster.

(American Autumn) is calm and smart, offsetting its stridency with discussion, music, even humor, while issuing a call to arms.-The New York Times

    Whoa! Silly distractions and serious class elitism alert! Every step of the way, middle class workers have supported the politics and policies that brought us to this point, from Reagan’s deregulation mania to Clinton’s NAFTA/repeal of poverty relief and onward. What the rich are doing to the middle class today is simply what the middle class already did to the poor. The middle class has been getting phased out for years, and we had cut the rungs off of the proverbial ladder out of poverty. It is becoming a relic of the past. Anyone who studied 20th Century US history in school could see how this would all turn out. Each time in the past that the richest few gained too much power, to the great harm of the country, the poor and middle class united to push back — to everyone’s benefit. That can’t happen this time.
