Stephen Lerner from SEIU (the guy who helped create the brilliant Justice For Janitors campaign) gave a keynote address at the 11th anniversary dinner of Grass Roots Organizing in Missouri–a kick ass group that is, like SUN, a part of National People’s Action. Check out the last part of this speech if you need a dose of fire and brimstone, flat-out enthusiasm for the fight to make Wall Street pay for crashing our economy and ending the economic inequality that plagues our nation. Occupy This!
This is our moment
this is what we’ve waited a lifetime for
this is our chance to do it right
this is our chance to change the world
this is our chance to save our homes
this is our chance to get fair taxes
this is our chance to bust up the big banks
this is our chance to save the world
I hope you’re with me
I hope you’re ready to do what it takes to do what it takes to win
This is a wonderful group
There is no better time to believe in justice than right now.
