    What’s that fence? Did they put it up just for the encircling? and thank you for the great demo!

    Thank you Allison for your account of Sunday and encircling the White House. I had been wondering what happened, if enough people showed up, and if Obama spoke to the people. And thank you for representing those of us who could not attend. Hopefully Obama will say NO to the Keystone XL TarSands Pipeline.

    It is heartwarming to see thousands of Americans protesting around the White House on this issue. I have emailed the President consistently, along with my reps. I am thrilled with OWS and how that is playing out. We will take our country back.

    When confronted with overwhelming financial imbalance where all three branches of our government are DUI of greed and extreme concentration of wealth – we must take to the streets. The dominoes of Arab Spring (triggered by self immolation), Wisconsin, Spain’s indignados, OWS (started by tiny magazine ad in Vancouver and flamed and inspired by Bill McKibben’s White House civil disobedience) is a sea change. We the people must right the ship of state before the gold chains around the necks of the uber-rich drag us all down to the depths of hell.

    Every day, We the People give our money to The Alpha Dog on Wall Street and Washington D.C.,
    U.S. Allied Military Industrial & Fossil Fuel/Nuke Complex Inc.
    Simply by voting Democrat or Republican, paying taxes and using electricity, gasoline, natural gas, etc. and buying anything not locally produced or with plastic involved. It’s almost unavoidable.
    Wall Street is driven by supply and demand. We as individuals can greatly reduce our consumption of fossil fuel products and nuclear energy. We must fully support the alternatives.
    We the People must write and sign petitions, register voters and Vote -Out the Well Paid Puppets that are put in office by generous contributions and guided by strong lobbying from
    U.S. Allied Military Industrial & Fossil Fuel/Nuke Complex Inc.
    Most of all We the people must stop financing the
    Global Terrorism for Industrial Resources.

    Obama said he could not do anything without support. Well, look out your window and support us first and then maybe we will support you.

      We’re making him do it. We’re making Congress do it. We cannot stop. It is Good vs. Evil. Imagine how big this movement would be by now if ANY corporate media had covered this story! Matters not. We WILL win.

    Obama’s lack of action on the environment is the only thing standing in the way for me to fully support him in a second term campaign. That being said, I’m certain a GOP candidate won’t off much in the environment arena either.

    While I was unable to come to DC for this rally (despite seriously considering it) our own local Occupy LI event the same day in Mineola to Move Our Money was pretty successful; credit unions benefited from this nationwide bank divestment to the tune of $4.5 billion.

    While we sent the big banks a much-needed wake-up call, you folks made a huge impact for all of us in DC. Thank you for your determination and dedication to our national environment.

    No one has made a rallying cry across the country through the media and even the alternative sites seem to remain silent on the circle around the White House. So glad to have at least one good article to read. Want more! Thanks to those who were there. Keep up the pressure.
