#WaveOfAction Begins April 4th

 
 

The crowd-sourced Worldwide Wave of Action will begin on April 4th with celebrations at former Occupy locations throughout the world. People with opinions across the political spectrum are invited to unite and find common ground against corruption.  We will overcome divide and conquer propaganda by forming communities of support and compassion.

Overview

On April 4th, we will launch the first phase of the Worldwide Wave of Action by gathering at Zuccotti Park and former occupation sites throughout the world to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  At 6:05pm CT, the time of his assassination, we will host vigil ceremonies and resurrect his spirit of nonviolent direct action.

Together we will fight for freedom and begin engaging in a relentless campaign of nonviolent civil disobedience.  People will pledge to take part in whatever tactics they are interested in throughout a sustained three-month cycle.  Here’s a basic list of tactics… 

> Mass gatherings, demonstrations;
> Marches, parades;
> Flash mobs, swarms;

> Shutdown harmful corporate and governmental operations;

> Worker Strikes;

> Hunger strikes;

> Sit-ins;

> Strategic defaults, debt strikes;

> Foreclosure prevention;

> Boycotting corrupt corporations;

> Move your money out of the big banks and the stock market;

> Use alternative currencies and economic systems;

> Cancel your cable television and support independent media;

> Use independent online tools that don’t sell your info / protect privacy;

> Online civil disobedience, Anonymous operations;

> Leak information on corruption;

> Use alternative energy;

> Build urban and hydroponic farms, or get your food from them;

> Support local businesses;

> Join local community organizations;

> Take part in food banks and help develop community support systems;
> Start or join intentional and autonomous communities;

> Experiment with new governing systems, Liquid Democracy;

> Host teach-ins;

> Make conscious media;
> Guerrilla postering, messages on money;

> Help inspiring groups and organizations spread their message;

> Random acts of kindness and compassion;

> Mass meditations, prayer sessions and spiritual actions.

You know what you can do to play a part. Do whatever you feel inspired to do. Amplify what you are already doing. Think about what you are willing to do to be the change we urgently need to see in the world, and then do it.

We look forward to seeing you in action!
