OWS Goes Global 10.15.2011

The global events planned for Saturday can be classified into 2 movement categories.

#1.  Supporters in over 700 cities across the globe join the OWS in solidarity.

#2  Global Meditation.  (I suggest that we spend time visualizing the world we want to manifest.)

THE GLOBAL BRAIN PROJECT WORLDWIDE MEDITATION EVENT (dedicated to the Occupy Wallstreet protest and to all those seeking freedom from oppression) (User Submitted)

Saturday, 15th October, 2011 at 5.00 pm GMT (Local times below)

Join the Global Brain Project facebook group in its first worldwide meditation event and help take the global brain to a new level. The GBP is dedicated to activating the global brain and nothing is going to do more to make that happen than a worldwide collective meditation. The Global Brain Project group has organized this event in support of the Occupy Wallstreet protesters and those engaged in similar protests throughout the US and the world and all those seeking freedom from oppression. It is to them that this worldwide meditation is dedicated. For the rest of this post, please see the comments.

This is an opportunity to bring a gigantic burst of consciousness into the world that should have a significant effect. Indeed, if we can get enough people participating it is possible that we could provoke a quantum physics phenomenon known as a Waveform Transition. If we can make this happen we can change the world for the better on a permanent basis. We owe it to ourselves, to all seekers after freedom everywhere and to the world as a whole to participate in this event.

We have worked out a time that covers almost all the world time zones at more or less convenient times. Setting the start time as 5.00 pm GMT means that those on the east coast of the USA meditate at 11.00 am and those on the west coast do it at 8.00 am. If you live in Alaska and want to participate we would suggest you set your alarm clock. Please check the time difference for your US time zone. The US east coast time zone also includes the eastern edge of South America. Those in central and western S, America meditate at 12.00 noon and 1.00 pm respectively. Working eastwards from the UK, western Europe meditates at 6.00 pm, central Europe at 7.00 pm, eastern Europe at 8.00 pm and very Eastern Europe at 9.00 pm. These times zones also include the whole of Africa and the Middle East. Again, please check the time zone for your location. We selected the chosen day and time specifically so that we could include India in this event. However, it will be a late meditation for them -- 11.00 pm, I am afraid. Sorry about that India but at least you can sleep in on Sunday. Unfortunately, although we know there are many people who would like to participate there, we could not include Australia and New Zealand in a viable slot. If you would like to participate in either of those countries and are prepared to meditate in the small hours, we can do nothing but admire your dedication.

Please share or copy and paste this post onto your own wall and ask your friends to do the same. Please help to make this event viral. This is an opportunity for everyone who wishes that they could be a part of the protest movement to do their bit. Please help to make this happen. Thank you.

Professor Cornel West arrested in DC

Published: 17 October, 2011, 18:58

Acclaimed professor and activist Dr. Cornel West was arrested with 18 others on the steps of the Supreme Court building in Washington DC on Saturday during a local demonstration with the growing Occupy Wall Street movement.

Dr. West says that he was in Washington earlier in the day to witness President Barak Obama’s dedication of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, only to join protesters hours later at Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue. It is there that activists have been congregating for over a week down as part of the October 2011 Stop the Machine protest that hopes to draw attention to the ongoing war in Afghanistan — which earlier this month reached the 10-year mark, making it the longest-going American war ever.

Once at Freedom Plaza, West and dozens others marched through Washington to the Supreme Court building. A spokesperson for the high court confirmed that West was one of 19 people arrested for refusing to the leave the grounds. Video shows that protesters remained peaceful as they sat on the steps of the courthouse awaiting arrest.

Speaking from the steps of the building, West told a crowd of protesters and reporters, “We want to bear witness today that we know the relation between corporate greed and what goes on too often in the Supreme Court decision. We want to send a lesson to ourselves, to our loved ones, our families, our communities, our nation and the world that out of deep love for working and poor people that we are willing to put whatever it takes, even if we get arrested today, and say, we will not allow this day of Martin Luther King Jr’s memorial to go without somebody going to jail.”

Before his arrest, Dr. West told a reporter with NoCureForThat.org that the ongoing movement, approaching a full month of protests, has already reached historical status. “The question is where it will continue and what form it will take. We just don’t know at this point.”

Dr West added that “Martin King would be here right with us, willing to throw down out of deep love.”

“We love poor people, we love working people and we want Martin Luther King Jr to smile from the grave that we haven’t forgot him,” said Dr West.

The Princeton University professor that formerly taught at Harvard has spoken publically of the ongoing protests for several weeks now. To CNN earlier this month, Dr. West asked, “Who's going to really speak for poor people? Who's going to really speak for working people? That's very much what I think the . . . 'Occupying Wall Street' movement is all about.”

In an interview earlier this year, Dr West accused President Obama as being “a black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.”

Cornel West will be arraigned at the Supreme Court this afternoon.

Democracy Now dedicated most of their broadcast on the following Monday to Saturday's global protests.  The report ends with what, to my mind, is the highlight of the day... the miraculous turn of events during the standoff between police on horseback and the occupiers at Time Square.
