Happy “Wake-Up Day”!

Happy “Wake-Up Day”!

 

The movie is called “Owned & Operated” and it’s about the world and about society. It’s an attempt to show the world not just as it is, but also as it could be, using Video, Audio, Images, and quotes collected from every corner of the internet… and using all those things, it attempts to create a single narrative thread about these topics… through these contributions of hundreds of different people.

 

The idea is to wake people up, and get them thinking about things they may not yet have been thinking about. Because honestly, it’s time to wake the f*** up.

Plus, it’s incredibly moving. If everyone in the country saw it, it could open countless hearts and maybe even change the national conversation on marriage equality. It’s that good.

First video of Athens night clashes as Greece fights austerity

 

Thousands of protesters have marched in the Greek capital Athens at the start of a two-day general strike, as parliament prepares to vote on sweeping new austerity measures designed to stave off a default that could trigger a crisis in the wider eurozone.
Police were deployed in force in central Athens on Wednesday as protest marches began, blocking a road by parliament and shutting down two nearby metro stations.
At least 3,000 officers were stationed around the city, with additional forces guarding possible targets of violence such as embassies and government buildings.
Most of the country’s professional classes joined the walkout, including civil servants, tax collectors, doctors and teachers.
 

Taxi owners, petrol station operators and bakers also shut down their businesses in protest against the government’s economic policies.
Flights were grounded in the morning after air traffic controllers staged a 12-hour work stoppage.
Piles of rubbish continued to fester on street corners despite a civil mobilization order issued on Tuesday to order rubbish collectors back to work after a 17-day strike.
Civil servants have staged rounds of sit-ins at government buildings, with some, including the finance ministry, being under occupation for days.
“We expect that the strike could be the largest” in decades, Ilias Vrettakos, deputy president of the civil servants’ union ADEDY, said.
“The fact that other sections of society that are suffering from government policies are also participating gives a new dimension to the social resistance by workers and the people in general, and we hope that this mobilization will have an impact on political developments.”

I AM NOT MOVING – Short Film – Occupy Wall Street

 

 

This may be the most powerful video yet to come out of the Wall Street occupation, now heading into its fifth week. It strongly and artfully suggests a comparability between the U.S. government’s response to the nationwide protests and those of regimes challenged by the Arab Spring. —ARK
