Solidarity with Occupy Washington DC - Jobs and Justice

A Formal Endorsement.

Last January 14th on the holiday commemorating Dr. King's birthday, The National Capital Jobs Coalition marched from his new monument (still under construction at the time) to the Lincoln Memorial, site of the "I  Have A Dream," speech.  We marched with our friends Dr. Paul Zeitz, Linwood Martinez-Bentley, Jeff Wolf, Tizzy Giordano, Linda Yahr and a host of others.  We stood on those historic and majestic steps and rededicated ourselves to his vision of Jobs and Justice.

Today we join in solidarity and add our voices to vox populi,  Citizens all over this country are rising up in outrage over the bare faced theft of our nations wealth by a minority of 1% of our population.  We have watched our vote essentially co-opted by corporations  As lobbyists dictate fiscal and foreign policy.  We have watched as Congressmen actually changed laws to allow the few to get their hands more deeply into our pockets.  All parties, Democrat and Republican have been suborned by this voracious global greed machine.   All of it made possible by the bargain basement sale of our representative democracy and its conversion to a republican oligarchy.

The National Capital Jobs Coalition finds the goals of our brothers and sisters on Freedom Plaza and at McPherson Square entirely consistent and congruent with our policies of equal opportunity, transparency, and personal and political integrity.  These are qualities noticeably missing from today's model of governance.  Therefore we formally advocate and endorse OSW (Occupy Wall Street) movements as we firmly believe it represents and exemplifies the moral will of the people.
