It seems many of us have forgotten the Occupy Movement. While we gear up for Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, hundreds of thousands of Americans are still in the streets, protesting Wall Street and fighting for social justice.
To that end, OccupyMarines have renewed their vow to defend the protesters from the brutality of police forces across the country.
Here is their message, via Facebook;
“OccupyMarines will continue to protect the Occupiers. We are here to insure a peaceful protest. Let us know of any marches happening and we can send a call to veterans in your area so we can be of service.”
OccupyMarines also made a general call to stand together this holiday season in the face of corporate tyranny and government inaction.
“We have weapons of mass destruction- Our voices, Our Solidarity. Let’s stick together, these times are crucial, we’ve defended our nation from foreign threat, it’s time to defend it from domestic threat. Let us stand together with our brothers and sisters this holiday and achieve the true freedom we all deserve. Semper Occupare, Semper Fidelis.”
The Occupy Movement continues to stand strong this holiday season despite cold weather and efforts by police to break up camps. This is our opportunity to fight for our own freedom alongside Marines that risked their lives in foreign lands to keep Americans free. The Constitution specifically guarantees that every American has the right to assemble, protest, and speak freely. Let’s not forget that we must continue to defend those rights, even during the holidays. Because those who would take those rights away from us, are not taking the holidays off. We must continue to march, protest, and keep the Occupy Movement as the forefront of every mind in America. The Marines are in it to win it. Are you?
Special Thanks: To those men and women in uniform who have fought abroad or still fight abroad, and continue to fight for our rights and justice at home, thank you for your heroic service and unflinching dedication to the people of this nation. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season.
