Tomorrow I will Occupy #Vancouver …

and I will do everything I can to re-enact this tommorrow at the Vancouver Art Gallery:

Ask yourself internally what kind of world do I want to live in and listen. Do it now.

And now ask yourself, how can I make that happen? How can I make that happen from a place of love, compassion, joy and equanimity.

-Deepak Chopra

This video from 1:30 to 3:00 really sums it up for me.

If I am a spokesman for all of the people who think that we should not have 24 million people in this country who can’t find a full time job, that we should not have 50 million people in this country who can’t see a doctor when they’re sick, that we shouldn’t have 47 million people in this country who need government help in order to feed themselves, and we shouldn’t 15 million families who owe more on their mortgage than the value of their home, okay. I’ll be that spokesman. – Alan Grayson

According to the Occupy Vancouver website:

We, the Ninety-Nine Percent, come together with our diverse experiences to transform the unequal, unfair, and growing disparity in the distribution of power and wealth in our city and around the globe. We challenge corporate greed, corruption, and the collusion between corporate power and government. We oppose systemic inequality, militarization, environmental destruction, and the erosion of civil liberties and human rights. We seek economic security, genuine equality, and the protection of the environment for all.

We are inspired and in solidarity with global movements including those across the Middle East, Europe, and the Occupy Wall Street / Occupy Together movement in over 1000 cities in North America. Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere.

See you on the streets.

PS: I might do some of this too…

PEACE & LOVE.
