We are inspired by this performance!
About Student Protests
from Years Gone By
To Announce That The Student Movement
Is Alive Today, and growing!
In complete solidarity
with Occupy Wall Street
We, the 99%
Stand against economic injustice
Corporations have bought our government
Causing gross wealth disparity
In our city and country
So while millions lose jobs and homes
Bankers steal billions!
And they are stealing our future!
The same way Wall Street took so many
Through Debt Bubbles! And a lack of Vision
And a lack of compassion.
Fellow students! Fellow students!
The people stand shattered
in the face of the destruction of the 99%!
But the Season of Change is upon us,
It is time to Resist!
So we invite you to turn your gaze from the stage
Where the Revolution has been packaged
For your Bourgeoise consumption
And to the Streets!
Where Something New
Happens Right Now!
Hear these words!
Of those who dare to stand in a strong sun,
And cast a long sharp shadow,
As we awake this morning
With our mind stayed on freedom!
O Opera Lovers!
We invite you to join in the struggle
To reclaim the future of the 99%
We guard the truth, an ever-sharpened knife! Believe, survive endurance! Survival is our revenge! Endurance is life!
Off the Stage and Into the Streets!
