The fresh breeze of the Occupy movement that is spreading around the world needs to become a sustained wind blowing away complacency, acquiescence, and conventional thinking, clearing ground for even broader, more determined resistance - as well as the emergence of a new, growing movement for revolution that can sweep away the horrors of imperialism and set to work creating a whole new and far better world.

From the Occupy movement websites:
Last night, in the reclaimed Oscar Grant Plaza and in the wake of the massive police assault on Occupy Oakland, their general assembly passed a proposal to shut down and liberate the city of Oakland on Wednesday, Nov. 2nd: "We invite all students to walk out of school. Instead of workers going to work and students going to school, the people will converge on downtown Oakland to shut down the city...The whole world is watching Oakland. Let's show them what is possible." [Read proposal here.] Stay tuned, as the call for a general strike can grow to other cities quickly...
Occupy Wall Street (OWS) saw hundreds take to the streets last night in solidarity with Occupy Oakland. [Watch youtube here.] And OWS is calling for nationwide vigils onight for Scott Olsen, the Iraq veteran against the war who was slammed in the head by a police projectile during the assault in Oakland and remains in critical condition.
Yesterday, as Occupy Oakland was under siege, the L.A. Mayor and various city officials announced to Occupy LA that it is time to "move on." OLA responded with a statement that says in part, "As for a time stamp on our departure, there is none...We are resolved to continue our peaceful occupation...Occupiers across America are bravely and against great odds and obstacles exercising the right to have their voices heard in a public forum, we stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters around this nation and around the globe."
