babble is rabble.ca's discussion board but it's much more than that: it's an online community for folks who just won't shut up. It's a place to tell each other — and the world — what's up with our work and campaigns.

Why To Occupy? In Favour of the 99%

We designed this site as a go-to for anyone who might care to sample
the many good reasons, valid issues, and eloquent explanations that
are being offered to support the growing OCCUPY movement.

The support comes from a myriad of mortals--economists, actors,
writers, musicians, veterans, scientists, gurus, pundits,
personalities--the list goes on. And will grow. Heck, even the US
Chairman of the Federal Reserve has chimed in with encouragement. Go
figure.

So if anyone tells you this movement is just a bunch of scruffy kids
passing the time--send them here.
If anyone says there is no cohesive cause to the message, send them here.
If your local reporters suggest this is just another rabble-ridden
protest that is bound to dwindle and die--send them here.

And be sure to pass this site on and share it with as many of your
friends, relatives, and colleagues as possible. Especially the
doubters!

Finally, if you have any suggestions for additions to the site, be
sure to let us know. Just click on the envelope and drop us a line or
link.

In solidarity,

Darren Alexander

The video will form the basis for discussion at a political pub night next Wednesday, GS. Exactly what's needed. Thank you.

Excellent. The 'I'm Not Moving' video is really good with contrasting Obama's and Clinton's hypocritical speeches supporting occupiers of Cairo and Tripoli while police brutalize American protesters at home. U.S. hypocrisy at home and abroad is perfectly symmetrical as usual. The mask is off and fangs exposed for all the world to see. It's hideous.
