Robert Greenwald is a producer, director, political activist, and Brave New Films founder and president.
The Occupy Wall Street protest is a full bore indictment against corporate greed and dysfunctional government. It's a demand for nation building here at home.
People young and old are taking the streets, sleeping in tents, donating pizza, even publishing their own Occupy Wall Street Journal newspaper, to let our government and corporations know that we are a democracy that's not for sale.
The Brave New Foundation team pulled some of the most powerful images broadcasted from the Occupy movement. We hope our latest video inspires you to make your voice heard and rally with a protest in your city.
The local protests are growing more each day, with some observers estimating the Occupy movement could swell to 250,000 online activists in the coming days.
We've set up a user-friendly database for you to find a protest in your city and spread the word. Already, there are thousands of protesters in New York City and hundreds more in Los Angeles, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, Miami and elsewhere.
What's happening at symbolic sites in almost all of our cities is earning comparisons to the movement reshaping the Arab world.
May this be the beginning of an American Autumn and renewal.
The Occupy movement is deeply personal, there are so many different people taking to the streets- and for so many different reasons. Some are in high school and are anxious about the job market, others have graduated college and are drowning in student loans. Many are working longer hours for fewer dollars and workplace rights, or are unemployed.
Many more Occupying cities are veterans who've served abroad and cannot transition into civilian life without work. The wars abroad have had a corrosive effect on society.
What's happening is living digitally through social media. People young and old have set up media tents, libraries, cafeterias and medical centers and they're getting their message to the public.
We need to help them. We need to participate and make our voices heard today.
They're truly an inspiration. Whether you were marching in the 1960s, the early 2000s or you are in high school and utilizing your First Amendment rights, we can agree a healthy democracy requires the wisdom of crowds.
