We Are the 99 Percent: We are the 99 Percent

wearethe99percent:

Are you drowning in debt that never goes away? Are you facing the real possibility of eviction and homelessness? Are you worried that the social programs you depend on will get cut in the name of austerity? Let the 1 percent know by taking part in the 99 Percent Project. Make a sign. Write your circumstance at the top, no longer than a single sentence. Examples:

“I am a student with $25,000 in debt.”

“I need surgery and I’m more worried about the expense than my health.”

“I’m a homeowner who’s about to face foreclosure.”

Below that, write “I am the 99 percent.”

Below that, write “OccupyTogether”

Then, take a picture of yourself holding the sign and submit it to us. The 99 percent have been set against each other, fighting over the crumbs the 1 percent leaves behind. But we’re all struggling. We’re all fighting. It’s time we recognize our common struggles, our common cause. Be part of the 99 percent and let the 1 percent know you’re out there.

These problems have been around for centuries; you’re just looking for a scapegoat. What do you want from the rich…for them to pay off your loans? To shut down the banks? Can you cite any examples of the rich directly oppressing you, or are you simply frustrated that Harvard alumni who work 100+ hours a week (doing skilled work) make a better living than you?

It’s your fault you chose to study art history in college. And no, you will never be a famous artist, so you might want to find Plan B for paying off those loans.
