Help Get This Occupy Wall Street Commercial On TV!

More than 700 cities across the world either have an active Occupy demonstration going on right now, or they’re planning to start one on October 15th.

But there are still members of the 99% who don’t realize why people are occupying, and aren’t sure whether they should join or not.

That’s why media crowdfunding platform Loudsauce has launched a campaign to raise funds that will be used to air the below Occupy Wall Street commercial on cable television.

From the Loudsauce campaign page:

The mainstream media doesn’t get it. They’re trying to discredit the #occupy movement as bunch of uninformed extremists who don’t know what we want. But, we know who we are and we know what we want: we’re a big, diverse movement that’s fighting for an economy that works for all of us, not just the top 1%.

When we hit our fundraising goal, we’ll be able to put this video on the air during popular cable TV shows (like Seinfeld repeats or Sports Center). It will run just like a normal ad.

We’ve already seen that the mainstream media is reluctant to report on the Occupations in a fair and balanced manner. Attempts to incite violence, mock, suppress and discredit the thousands of hardworking Americans that have dedicated their time and resources to supporting this movement continue every day.

It’s time to show the 1% that contrary to popular belief, they don’t control the media. Just because they refuse to acknowledge it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. With your help, the revolution can be televised! Bringing this commercial to cable television will guarantee that millions of Americans are exposed to the struggle and start to ask questions about what’s happening.

And then it’s up to us to answer them.

Check out the Loudsauce campaign here, and donate if you can. If you can’t, help spread the word by sharing the link on Facebook and Twitter.

It's about time it happened! I had been telling people for a long time, you are the people and you have the right to take this country back (from the lackey politicians who work for the very rich). If we have to have another revolution, so be it!

Hopefully, these demonstrations will continue to spread across the US, and continue on, to become America's "Arab Spring." Our American Autumn.

We are well past our time for renewal, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, "change is our right, our responsibility."



People, lets take America back from the 1%, they are trading on your future. These people are traitors to the true American way. Let us see heads roll.



The question is, since the 1% didn't respect the 99% yesterday, what efforts will be needed for us to call upon. Can we get there with non-violence, god knows the 1% doesn't respect Non-violence, not in a violent world of their own making.

I'm very much in sympathy with the OWS movement but they need more focus on specific issues. While they're garnering headlines the Tea Partyers are getting their (actually the Koch Bros.) legislation passed. I don't agree with everything Obama does but he's a damn site better than any of the Republicans. Although I do give Ron Paul credit for his opposition to the military industial complex and drug laws but he's wrong on almost every other issue.
