…Let this be it.

On twitter? Use #occupywallstreet

The most affecting video of Occupy Wall Street I’ve seen yet. From a Buddhist pov, if we haven’t worked with our own aggression and pain, then protesting will just create more. But this protest seems to be peaceful, if angry, and inspiring. Hopefully it can continue to build in the spirit of non-violent protest.

In the name of democracy, let us unite!

The speech is from this [watch].

Youtube comment:

The cops will soon join us when their pensions [and collective bargaining rights] are gone.
