October 2011 Movement to Global Allies: American Empire Obstacle to Peace and Justice at Home and Abroad

June 23rd, 2011

Commits to Occupying Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., to End U.S. War and Exploitation

Today, the October 2011Movement, a fusion of peace, social justice, environmental, student, and immigrant rights organizations, published an open letter of solidarity with allies in nonviolent uprisings around the world. The coalition wrote, “We recognize that your revolution is our revolution, that American Empire prevents you from achieving self-determination and economic justice, and that only together can we achieve our shared goals.” The full open letter is below.

The October 2011Movement announced the action, "Stop The Machine: Create a New World," in a Call to Action and column History Is Knocking two weeks ago. Since that time more than 1,300 people have signed a pledge to be in Washington, D.C., beginning on October 6 to occupy Freedom Plaza “with the intention of making it our Tahrir Square, Cairo, our Madison, Wisconsin, where we will NONVIOLENTLY resist the corporate machine until our resources are invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation.” October 2011 intends to bring together Americans concerned with economic injustice, militarism, and environmental destruction to join in ending concentrated corporate power and taking direct control of a real participatory democracy.
