All   Together

Jewish song

Young people, our children are there,   on the streets in front of the banks and   stock exchanges. They live in tents, they eat from grills, they   endure   rain and     scorching heat. They   organized,   they keep order, they   stay there for at least a month and   now in   Oakland and Atlanta the police    attacked them   with viciousness.   MSM   reports it as   " town authorities losing patience..' You hear that, parents? Town authorities are losing patience with   your   kids.   They   are   declaring an open season on them.    No, they don't send   the police to   protect them, to help them to   protest, to    retain their dignity. They tear them apart. And we .. we    eat that.

In the old movie with   Jimmy Stewart the lawyer he plays does not approve of his daughter's   protests but he lies down   on the ground beside her when he sees that her right   to protest is violated. Now we   just" criticize from behind. We, the parents   are not worthy of our kids.   We are   the ones who support all those atrocities against them because   we are silent and silence   means   agreement. We comply- they die. They die for us in the abominable wars, they die for us in the streets, they die for us   in the killing fields of Congo, they die for us in the Iraqi mass murders, they die for us in the Palestinian camps. That is because they all are our children and if we betray the OWS we betray them all.

Here   it comes.   It is not enough to just be a     parent,   to provide, to nourish and   to   protect from the diseases. Turned out that the     primary   function of any parent is to stay together with   his/her children, ALL   children   in front of the state machine.   It is   not enough to   have a house and a car; times had come to   make a choice; either you are   the part of the problem   or a part of the solution.   We, the parents must     condemn   the violence against our children no matter who did it and   under what pretence.   We   must   extend our full support to   our kids because   they took the place we were supposed to take if we   were not so cowardly.

The   glorious   Yiddish song   calls all the people to come together   in celebration. OWS movement is the celebration of   the   proud    exhibit of goodness, seldom in the US since   we had our Y2001. It will be an eternal celebration if we, the parents   start doing our job- supporting, helping, organizing our   kind, preparing for the General Assembly, fighting tooth and nail against   that wave of slander   rolling over the movement.   Let's do it together, folks. Help your kids on your soil. Talk in your churches and charities. Demand   actions, demand help,   demand donations.    Let's start with OEN proclaiming its solidarity with the OWS and its goals, offering its   informational resources to OWS as a place of voice.   Lomir Ale In Einem, people.   Together we can prevail.

Let's make it real. Let's show those vampires we are in charge. Do not leave our kids alone   in the   void. Let them know,   like in Chicago in 1968, that they have   the support of   those 99% they are a part of. Don't be afraid, people. Invent the sign of OWS solidarity, the sign and a song.    Let it become     the powerful force sweeping the country and   taking it out of the seizure.   Let our family be together again.   Viva Ben &   Jerry who announced their support. Are   we   worthy of the ice-cream we eat at least?

We shall overcome together!   To all your health,   people.

Lomir zan gizint!
