Event Description


 

 

A peaceful revolution is occurring
People are uniting around the world
The Occupy Movement is growing.

On Oct 28th 2011 - We send a powerful message:
WE SHUT THE SYSTEM DOWN.

For one day we peacefully protest in a symbol that will be felt across the globe.

We step out of the economic system and we spend a day to step back into ourselves.

Some Guidelines

1) A 24 hour television blackout where all participants willfully keep their tubes turned off. If enough people participate, this could cost corporations millions in lost revenue.

2) A 24 hour retail boycott where all participants agree to refrain from buying any merchandise not directly associated with basic needs, such as food and medicine.

3) A 24 hour employment walkout where participants refuse to attend work, with the exception of emergency services.

4) It has been suggested and bears repeating, all bank accounts that are not absolutely necessary should be closed. If you must retain a bank account, switch to a credit union or smaller locally owned bank.


Others have suggested - turning off all lights, unplug all the plugs or shut off power to your home even.
Don't use your TV, radio, internet or even the phone.
Don't buy -anything- and if there are services you've been thinking about cancelling. Today's a good day to do it.
Call in sick to work.  

Basically do your best to do NOTHING that generates money into THE SYSTEM.

Send a message & unite!

Most importantly, for one day, give yourself the gift of inner reflection, without distraction. Take time to read a book or meditate. Play games or have conversations with loved ones. Work on a creative project, alone or as a family.

On Oct 28th 2011
Step out of the system and get back to yourself. Turn off the economic powers and empower yourself!

Spread the word!
SHUT IT ALL DOWN!

*Note, if for whatever reason, you decide you do not wish to participate in this fully. Do your best to do what you can do. The less you put into the system tomorrow the better. Participating half way is still better than not participating at all!

So glad you enjoyed the song.  It's one of my favorites.  You know, you just never know how what you say may affect others.  Your words helped to inspire me to start a group on here for peace loving people to share their vision of a better world. I just got an e-mail saying the group was approved.  I hope you will join.  It's called "Dreamers".  I picked that name while listening to Imagine and the words "You may say that I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one"....

Thanks for the inspiration ((Big Hug)) back atcha!

I believe we are a peace loving group of people who gathered together for this event.  When GypsyEyes4u mentioned us having a vision of a better world, I couldn't help but think of this song.  I have never been able to listen to it since 9/11 without it getting me all stirred up inside.

Eerily silent without all my background noise but worth it for a day.

A.A.R: L.E.O's hand out blankets and jackets to "Occupiers", in New Haven, CT. rather than handing out citations or making arrests.

 

 

Further evidence that peaceful co-creative intent can effect mass-consciousness in a benefical and positve manner.

 

 

 

No matter the negativity mass media is portraying, thing's are not as they seem.

Just an added note.. I'm really pleased to see all the dialogue happening around this.. it's very positive and healthy to see people expressing themselves and I'm glad you feel empowered to do so here.

This is really what this site -is- about. Is encouraging people in their personal development, rather than impose beliefs on them. I'm pleased that in our attendees, we have maybes, and definite 'no's'.

Diversity is a blessing. Challenging each others views is how we all grow. This is truly how we learn from each other and discover new horizons.
