As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of 
mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us 
together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by 
the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your 
allies.
 
As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the 
future of the human race requires the cooperation of its 
members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon 
corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to 
protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that 
a democratic government derives its just power from the 
people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract 
wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true 
democracy is attainable when the process is determined by 
economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, 
which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, 
and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have 
peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these 
facts be known.
 
-- They have taken our houses through an illegal 
foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
-- They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, 
and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.
-- They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in 
the workplace based on age, the color of one's skin, sex, 
gender identity and sexual orientation.
-- They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, 
and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
-- They have profited off of the torture, confinement, 
and cruel treatment of countless animals, and actively hide 
these practices.
-- They have continuously sought to strip employees of 
the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working 
conditions.
-- They have held students hostage with tens of thousands 
of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
-- They have consistently outsourced labor and used that 
outsourcing as leverage to cut workers' healthcare and pay.
-- They have influenced the courts to achieve the same 
rights as people, with none of the culpability or 
responsibility.
-- They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams 
that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards 
to health insurance.
-- They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
-- They have used the military and police force to 
prevent freedom of the press. They have deliberately 
declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in 
pursuit of profit.
-- They determine economic policy, despite the 
catastrophic failures their policies have produced and 
continue to produce.
-- They have donated large sums of money to politicians, 
who are responsible for regulating them.
-- They continue to block alternate forms of energy to 
keep us dependent on oil.
-- They continue to block generic forms of medicine that 
could save people's lives or provide relief in order to 
protect investments that have already turned a substantial 
profit.
-- They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, 
faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of 
profit.
-- They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful 
through their control of the media.
-- They have accepted private contracts to murder 
prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about 
their guilt.
-- They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.
-- They have participated in the torture and murder of 
innocent civilians overseas.
-- They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in 
order to receive government contracts. *
 
To the people of the world,
 
We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street 
in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.
 
Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public 
space; create a process to address the problems we face, and 
generate solutions accessible to everyone.
 
To all communities that take action and form groups in the 
spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, 
and all of the resources at our disposal.
 
Join us and make your voices heard!
 
* These grievances are not all-inclusive.
