As the cause grew, as the voices raised louder and began to be heard, a sign of the government cracking under pressure revealed itself. A quote from U.S. Congressman Peter King:
"We have to allow this to get any legitimacy. I'm taking this seriously in I am old enough to remember what happened in the 1960's when the left wing took the streets and somehow the media glorified him and it ended up shaping policy."This message is important in the context that it is said. Without forwardly stating it, he is expressing that this needs to be stopped because if it continues to grow then it will make changes like in the 1960's. This, in my view, gave signs of weakness of the government and signs of progress. Signs that this movement is moving. Earlier this week those involved in the protest released their first document to the government entitled the "Declaration of the Occupation of New York City". More documents are underway to be released in the upcoming days: 1) A declaration of demands. 2) Principles of Solidarity 3) Documentation on how to form your own Direct Democracy Occupation Group.
This outreach from the citizens can only be described in one word that sums up everything that it is, in exactly the way it is... Revolution. All across the nation people are uniting together to make a stand. Uniting together for change. Uniting together to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done. And YOU can be a part of it. Without even needing to physically be on the street.
