The Occupy Movement has sprouted sooo many actions, but as we've gotten into election time work is still being developed. Bum Rush The Vote is creating an open source and running a model campaign in NYS's 12th Congressional District as our candidate Hon. George Martinez @HonGeoMartinez and Bum Rush The Vote run for office as a movement. Yes we mic check events and other candidates - the truth must come out. We're looking for more voluteers, supporters and media to take money out of politics and put the Occupy Movement into Congress. #BumRushTheVote @BumRushTheVote www.facebook.com/BumRushTheVote
Yes we mic check events and other candidates - the truth must come out.
The only "truth" that demonstrates to most people is that the "mic checkers" have nothing but contempt for others' freedom of speech, assembly and so on; but if Occupy Wall Street demonstrates the usual Left/anarchist contempt for elementary civility and the 99%, then OWS will fail, and deserve to, for the usual Left/anarchist political incompetence.
While y'all were NOT writing about Bum Rush The Vote, our electoral direct action managed to do something more concrete then any of the other Occupy encampments and it came right out of Occupy Wall Street on May 1.
George "Rithm" Martinez was officially certified for the June 26th Democratic Primary Ballot in the race to Occupy a NY's 7th District seat in Congress. In spite of attempted voter suppression by GoldmanSachs Velazquez paid for with her corporate monies.
This accomplishment was done with a very bare minimum amount of monies and makes George the first and only Occupy Activist to successfully reach a ballot as opposed to becoming a write-in candidate. Now for those of you that are ready to come on board, the idea is for more and more Real People to step forward and move the 99% Agenda. The blueprint for getting on the ballot without significant money or corporate money is being written.
