December 17th: Occupy Events in NYC and DC

More info at occupwallst.org and nycga.net:

Saturday, December 17th at 12PM
DUARTE SQ. PARK, 6th AVE & CANAL in NYC
Protect & Celebrate the Occupy Movement
for social and economic justice

Join artists, musicians, and local community members for an all-day performance event in support of Occupy Wall Street and the occupation of space and reclaiming of the commons.

Freedom of expression and the right to assemble are sacred human freedoms. Through bold, courageous actions, Occupy Wall Street has renewed a sense of hope, revived a belief in community and awakened a revolutionary spirit too long silenced. To Occupy is to embody the spirit of liberation that we wish to manifest in our society.

On Saturday, December 17th – the 3 month anniversary of the birth of this movement, we will gather to celebrate Occupy Wall Street and to occupy space together.

And, for folks who can get to DC on Dec 17th:

Occupy DC has a big event to support Bradley Manning (who allegedly leaked government secrets about the war): Continue reading

Three pieces about Goldman Sachs:

(excerpt from) Digital Journal/Op-Ed
The Goldman Sachs project — New world government?
November 18, 2011

“By leading the world’s economies into chaos, Goldman Sachs is creating a situation where they can replace key government leaders with their own people.
It’s a cheap con: scare your victim then move in to offer ‘protection.’

That’s the technique that’s now being used on a global scale to oust world leaders and effectively take over world government…”

The piece at Digital Journal points out that two world leaders, in countries where there are financial crises, have connections to Goldman Sachs:

Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos has ties to Goldman Sachs.

The Prime Minister of Italy, Mario Monti, “was an international adviser to Goldman Sachs from 2005 until his nomination to lead the Italian government.”

Please check out “Sonny Meadows Week” at Peace Couple (plus, quiz at bottom of this post)

As many of you know, Sonny Meadows is a local musician and activist, here on Long Island, New York. The Wilders have admired his work — and his many solo performances and band performances — over the years. With the advent of the occupy movement, it seems to us that Sonny’s music about injustice, social justice, war and peace, is even more valuable. Now there are legions of empowered people to enjoy these songs, and learn this music.

At our Peace Couple website, we do a “Peace Song of the Day”, every day of the year. We used this past week to celebrate Sonny Meadows. If you go over there, you can check out which 7 songs we picked from among Sonny’s long list of favorites. (Maybe you want to guess first, or, think which of his songs you would have chosen, before you click over?)

For the real insiders, we could not resist making a game out of this project. So, at the readmore, you can find a quiz. See if you can match the Sonny Meadows song, with a brief quote from the lyrics. (And, if my darling husband is reading this, you have to play, too! And, no cheating!)
