GLOBAL MOVEMENT



A global movement is growing to counter the reality of corporate globalization.

We've got to keep spreading this deep into the consciousness and fabric of each of our nations.

We can't allow any political party to hijack this movement. It must stay independent....and maintain the ability to be critical of the corporate policies of any and all governments and political parties.

The final key pieces of the movement to be added though must be the ecological and peace links. We can't survive in a world where the resources of the globe are poured into endless war and environmental destruction.

Occupy Wall Street is inspiring many people in Korea as well.

Please look at Occupy Seoul photos on Oct. 15

About 500 people gathering in the center of Seoul, held the Occupy Seoul rally, saying, “The 99% are us, We are angry. We act.” The slogans were “No ROK-US FTA, Halved tuition, and no irregular jobs!”

The Korean articles about Occupy Seoul can be found in near 300 sites.

In the Gangjeong villagers’ candle light vigil in the night of Oct. 15, Artist Koh Gil-Chun who met Noam Chomsky in his visit to the United States in September, to appeal for solidarity to the opposition struggle against the Jeju naval base construction made a short speech on Occupy Wall Street in the New York City he visited, inspiring many people there, as well.
