Solidarity Statement: Tayo Ang 99% / We are the 99%:

Filipino Advocates for Justice Stands in Solidarity with Occupy Oakland

Filipino Advocates for Justice (FAJ) supports the “OCCUPY Movement” including the right of Occupy Oakland to peacefully encamp at Oscar Grant Plaza to speak their grievances.

We are in agreement that we need to end corporate greed and the vast accumulation of wealth by a tiny minority. We agree with the growing belief that corporations (especially financial institutions) and the rich are responsible for the economic crisis and have an obligation to help us recover. It is time that the rich and corporations pay a fair tax so we can restore the quality of life we call the American Dream.

There’s no justice in a system that serves the top 1% at the expense of the bottom 99%. Banks and corporations, some of whom received government bailouts, are reporting increased earnings and rewarding executives with multi-million dollar bonuses, while the 99% feel no recovery. For the 99% the cost of living is out of control. Our treasured institutions like public schools, libraries, public parks, and support services for the more vulnerable are suffering for lack of revenue. High unemployment, home foreclosures, teacher layoffs, school closures, soaring college tuitions, public safety layoffs, and cut backs in programs for the elderly make a joke of the American Dream. It is no wonder the 99% are so angry in the U.S. and globally. (more…)
