United and with the ideology that reflects the true interests of the 99%. This spring will be the beginning of a clean cut break from the super narrow consumer culture imposed from above by the corporations-- to the new 99% scope of seeing and fighting in the interest of the people's struggles. Let's move... constructing a better America for all-- no one excluded, equality for all.

I think May 1st is an important marker for the movements against corruption.

I pray for a huge turn-out all across the country.

I know going forward towards this. I see the need for communications and planning like never before.

So that when we hit the streets we will be carrying a coherent message of unity.

We can make a huge impression and make a great start for follow-up action through-out the rest of the year.

This may well be one of the most key gatherings that will ever happen.

Unite in common cause.

Talk issues not parties.

Money out of politics.

End ear-marking.

Remove conflict of interest from elected officials.

One subject at a time legislation - OSTA

Corporations are not people.

Fracking to be included in the EPA clean drinking water mandate.

No Tar sands pipeline.

Regulate fossil fuel speculation.

Implement green power generation - Wind Solar Geo-thermal Hydrogen Cold fusion etc.

Present information on things that need fixing and any petitions in existence that are already being used to lobby for change.

This is how we move forward together by sharing this information to the public and by sharing petitions concerning them hand out information at demonstrations. Publish leaflets for internet dispersal as well. Communicate clearly above all else.

There are other amendments that GOP house members put in the NDAA bill that are really bad. Like http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:HZ00310:
