As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

      We the people are no longer represented by the politicians. Phil Bryant is the perfect example of a politician who could not care less about the wishes of the people. He only serves his lobbyists and the corporations.

      You have no right to deny Occupy Jackson their use of the park for peaceful activities that they see fit. That's it, plain and simple. They have the right to occupy.

      The first amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right to assemble to redress grievances to the government. It does not say that it can only be done during government approved hours or in a government approved place. The US Constituion is the supreme law of the land and supercedes all local laws.
