It all started with a tree and you can't cut it down. It started with a tree can you hear that sound; It's the people. It's a moment - That we all really need. Finally awake we've been living in a dream. And everybody knows that we got to break free.

It all started with a tree
(Yeah a tree), and you can't cut it down

It started with a tree can you hear that sound
It's the people (the people)

Now what you gonna do?
Everybody stand up no body move

It's a moment (a moment)
That we all really need
Finally awake we've been living in a dream

And everybody knows that we got to break free
It's all going down and it started with you tree!

You can't have it
We said you couldn't cut it down

This is our people
This is our sound

This is our music
This is our voice

This is our movement
This is our choice

Get yourself out there get yourself heard
You can change the world with the power of the word

Enough is enough and we ain't gonna stop
Too many people, not enough cops!

It all started with a tree
(Yeah a tree), and you can't cut it down

It started with a tree can you hear that sound
It's the people (the people)

Now what you gonna do?
Everybody stand up no body move

It's a moment (a moment)
That we all really need
Finally awake we've been living in a dream

And everybody knows that we got to break free
It's all going down and it started with you tree!


They can take away justice, take away law
Take away freedom, that's what we saw

They talk about peace but they really want war
The world is watching they wont get far

Revolution, it can happen in a day
Don't be afraid of the things they say

We all come together and we can't be stopped
Too many people, not enough cops!

It all started with a tree
(Yeah a tree), and you can't cut it down

It started with a tree can you hear that sound
It's the people (the people)

Now what you gonna do?
Everybody stand up no body move

It's a moment (a moment)
That we all really need
Finally awake we've been living in a dream

And everybody knows that we got to break free
It's all going down and it started with you tree!

Bir, iki, uc, dort


The poets, the artists, the thinkers and writers
The cryptic, the passive aggressive reciters

The actors, musicians, the painters and dancers
They jail us for freedoms of taking our chances

The lovers, the haters, the gays and the straighters
The drinkers, the smokers, the laughers and jokers

The socially awkward, the mamas and papas
The farmers and croppers, the big city shoppers

They sell us, they trade us
They love us, and hate us
They claim that we voted them in so they made us

And last but not least they will give us the knowledge
Of mass education through government college

And they won't apologize, they wanna beat us
And hit us with bullets and forcefully feed us

And now that we've told them that we've had enough it
We will not take it and let them be rough with it

We give them power and we gave them places
And teach them a lesson they'll never erase

So people awaken and finally see

It all started with a tree
(Yeah a tree), and you can't cut it down

It started with a tree can you hear that sound
It's the people (the people)

Now what you gonna do?
Everybody stand up no body move

It's a moment (a moment)
That we all really need
Finally awake we've been living in a dream

And everybody knows that we got to break free
It's all going down and it started with you tree!

We, the Free Peoples of Earth

Declare that Now, upon this Monumentus Occasion of Solidarity

As we stand side-by-side, arm in arm, shoulder to shoulder

Our hearts full of Love, and Compassion, with Understanding, and Acceptance of all that we

face in the eyes the adversity,

Together as One, Man, Woman and Child,

A community, a collective, and most importantly a Revolution of expression

Non-judgmentally driven,

Without persecution of beliefs,

Or the undermining of those with differing values,

Side-by-side, in the name of humanity, of morality and equality for all people

Free from oppression and intolerance, arrogance and tyranny

Unscathed by the unapologetic nature of power and greed

Unmoved by the fear and persuasion

Steadfast in our resolve

Without fear of brutality,

Relentless and merciless savagery

Together we stand for our brothers, our sisters, our elders and our children

Now is the time to move past the lies, the hatred, and the domination of the human spirit

To create a better world, inspired by Unity, Harmony, Education, Opportunity, consideration and

Empathy,

Unwavering as a mountain

Deep rooted as a tree, from now and forever

As one people we will stand strong

As one people we will stand free

And as we stand here side by side

Remember, that it all started with One Tree.

Oh that has me so fired up! I LOVE IT! This needs to be an international movement, a single massive movement of solidarity where no one person is the catalyst. We must all be the catalysts. Can't you all feel it? I wanted to crawl right into the video and stand with all those who have the impetus to fight for our rights to be free from government tyranny! Free from oppression and fear. Because it did. It all started with a tree! Ms. Dandelion, a feather for you.

It is amazing, yet not surprising, how, once we acknowledge our connection with the Earth, even for a moment, remember who we are and our value and the value of all life. it all snowballs from there... the awakening of what we are really all about. That one connection...started with a tree.

Ugh, here I go mouthing off again, maybe I will just shut up, its nothing bad, its actually very good, actually real good. Sending you a message dandy-1 as soon as I can get to a system that I can send care2 messages from. Sigh, I can only write to my friends in the news articles, because for some reason the message thing does not work. But, just to headline this: My daughter is Krystal and I had asked her to locate this particular video on you tube for a reason and I am sooooo VERY happy you took notice. For the past week and until the wolves get resolved in the great lakes region, things are on topsy-turvy. Will update as soon as I land somewhere, OK?

Reminding us to remember to feel what's important.

Remember "Live Aid" , "we are the world, we are the people, we are the ones that make a brighter day..
1983, 1984? Nowadays, a video, like this, goes everywhere!

Thanks Roxy, Krystal sent it to me and I ran with it. Now in hopes more will forward and be inspired. In hopes all over the world that people will stand up together on November 5th.

Please join with others or at least stand outside your local bank, town or city hall and have a sign on what it is that is bothering you the most. But do something, say something, show by the fact you left your house that you count that you do matter.

The Oligarchy expect us to do nothing, to remain silent, to suffer whatever it is they choose to rain down upon us, from fracking, chemtrails, mountaintop removal, killing our animals through deforestation, GMO's, the rigged financial systems, raiding many of our pensions, wanting to steal our Earned Social Security, polluting our air, our waters, the list is endless and they don't care how it affects us, how we strain under their actions, they do not care. So add your voice!
Add Your Voice or Do Nothing and Watch it Become Worse or at the Very Least Not Improve

Just want to add my thanks for posting, Dandelion. I absolutely loved that video....and am reminded that even if The Powers That Be chop off branches & limbs....even if they attempt to chop down the tree, the roots have grown deep and strong. We have the "older" generation with such great experience, that came alive to protest the Vietnam War & begin the environmental pushback. And, now we have the youth & vitality of the younger generation that's coming into its own---esp. thru social networking---to help us surge forward.

Very good posting... There are noteable people in history who have stood up to Oligarchy and they mostly did it with peaceful but very obvious disobedience. I do not believe in anarchy as a way out of a situation (that causes social and moral collapse and a selfish free-for-all society), but sometimes you just have to walk against the wave of injustice and try to stand up for what is right and decent. We need some more Ghandi's, some Martin-Luther-King's and lots of litte hero's to stand against Corporate greed and Social injustices.

HEYYY!
You Idle No More People, you are doing the greatest, most beautiful thing of our time as humans.

Here some things must be done, but here for a moment I want to elaborate on a comment I made earlier:

you can walk in the real world and feel how All things are your Relatives.
And you can feel how they are feeling.

You do your work for Them. Remember to walk and talk with Them. They will guide you without erring.

I am Yours. They are Yours.

With the Songs of Their life, They thank You. I thank You.
