Economic Bill of Rights for the 99%!!!!

Ever since the early days of Occupy Wall Street, the issue of economic inequality has become a pertinent demand of the movement. Yet, those within the corporate media have mocked & derided the movement for its supposed "lack of clear goals." The Occupy Movement has out-lasted all the smears, crackdowns & other repressive actions by the 1%. As such, it is time for the 99% to establish its first tangible set of policies to address its own demands: an Economic Bill of Rights, which was originally
conceived by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, which includes the right to a job, a living wage, a free education & freedom from corporate exploitation. Please sign this, the fate of our wonderful new movement may depend on it!

SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER!!!!

      Due to recent feedback on Twitter, I've deleted a few of the demands on the petition letter, as they are stand alone issues that have their own movements to contend for. I believe the demands are streamlined now, as I intended this petition to address more labor/poverty-centric elements in the Occupy Movement. My initial aims with this petition is not so much to force policy change in a short period of time; such an endeavor tends to take awhile to accomplish. My aim is to make the Economic Bill of Rights a central focus for the Occupy Movement in the coming months, something that all people involved can get behind. It's time to start pushing for the real, concrete change that all Occupiers have been striving for since Sept 17. So please help to make this viral; such an issue can only further solidify the Movement in the eyes of the general public.

      Due to my own circumstances this year, there should be no more economic inequality or ignorance of basic rights in this country, especially due to greed and money!

      All Americans should have these rights. Basic human rights should not be political. Corporations are not people and should not have more rights that REAL people.
