> THEY are the government, corporate, and financial powers that wage

> funding occupations that displace millions from their homelands -  
> trampling on the right of oppressed people to self-determination.
> THEY send our youth - victims of the economic draft - to fight over  
> the very fossil fuels whose unrestrained use threatens the future  
> of the planet while corrupt and virtually unregulated oil giants  
> dump billions of gallons of death into our rivers and oceans.
> THEY wage a fake "war on terrorism" at home - the new McCarthyism -  
> that promotes racism and Islamophobia aimed at destroying civil  
> liberties and democratic rights.
> THEY grant repeated and untold trillions in bailouts to banks,  
> corporations and financial institutions while breaking unions,  
> robbing pensions, destroying jobs, foreclosing homes, de-funding  
> education and vital social services and are once again threatening  
> Social Security and Medicare.
> THEY offer no solutions to the current crises other than more of
