“Pledge for Nonviolence”

Nonviolence is the fulcrum. Discipline is the lever.

Here is the core message from Dr. M.L. King, Jr., and M.K. Gandhi:

Pledge For Nonviolence

1.    As you prepare for Occupy Wall Street, please open yourself to life, love and the blessings of faith, hope, and charity.
2.    Refrain from violence of fist, tongue and heart.
3.    Walk and talk in the manner of love; for truth and love are the core of life, neither ambition nor the temptations of control.
4.    Sacrifice personal wishes that all might be free.
5.    Observe with friends, with false friends and with your foes the ordinary rules of courtesy.
6.    Perform regular service for others and the world.
7.    Pray or simply ask within to be moved so that all men and women might be free.
8.    Remember that nonviolence seeks Justice and Reconciliation – not victory.
9.    Strive to be in good spirits and in good health. We are the 99% and we must go in peace.

Commitment to nonviolence will be the most important key moving forward. A condition of “winter quarters” governs activity across northern America until March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day.

Then, rebranding Occupy will be critical to defeat right wing Big Lie attacks on these protests.

Agent provocateur “provo” incited riots at Air and Space Museum, August 8th, and at Oakland have been the worst of it for defamation. These were attempts using on-the-payroll thugs to separate Occupy from nonviolence.

Nonviolence, first, combined with love. That is the way Occupy can achieve Justice. That is also how Occupy can achieve Reconciliation with citizens such as the Tea Party people who have been misled into accepting the trillion dollar fraud schemes of Wall Street’s gangsters.
