It’s such honored to come here, here in Tsukadi, Occupy Wall Street. You are being inventing our political universe. You have renewed our collective passion. You have reminded us that it is still possible to build vibrate community of resistance. You continued to show us your commitment, your dedication, your collective labor, your refusal, to asset, to class hierarchies, to racial hierarchies, to gender hierarchies, to sexual hierarchies.
We have come together as the 99%, there are major responsibilities that are lit to your decision to assemble here, in community. How can we be together? How can we be together? How can we be together in an unity that respect and celebrate the difference among us? How can we be together in an unity that is not simplistic , that is not oppressive but rather, complex and masturbatory. Our unity must be complex and masturbatory and so are evoked. The black feminist Audre Lorde, the black lesbian feminist Audre Lorde, “Differences”, she wrote, “must not be merely tolerated but seen as an fund of polarities between which our creativity can spark like a dialectic.
In this complex unity, we say “yes” to life, we say “yes” to community, “yes” to happiness, “yes” to education, free education. We say “yes” to economic and racial and gender and sexual equality. We say “yes” to imagination. We say “yes” to creativity. We say “yes” to hope. We say “yes” to the future.
Finally a few words about my home town, Oakland California. You have heard about the police assault on Occupy Oakland. Scott Osin remind in hospital, “Oakland general assembly met a few days ago, in the park named Froascgrade and call for a general strike throughout the city, on November 2nd, a general strike. This is revolutionary.
