All around the world from Detroit, Ferguson, to Ukraine, the capitalist class is on the assault. Whether they're shutting down schools, cutting food stamps, shooting unarmed people in our streets, or dropping bombs on innocent people abroad; they've made it clear that there's only one thing they want: everything! Capitalism has proven itself to be a system based on nothing more than profit and does not consider human needs. They've put the squeeze on us, it's time we rise up and put the squeeze on them! A job is a right! Food is a right! Education is a right! No more military interventions! http://www.facebook.com/events/315461158579261/

Calling all of Occupy to open arms in 2014 and to embrace our ideals to the fullest. We will encompass our communities, outreach toward youth, and work alongside our allies. Together we call for justice. Together we can make strides toward a system beholden to the people. We seek: an end to unwarranted surveillance and a right to privacy, an end to corporate control of government, and the restoration of our voices in the political arena. We are opposed to war, war drones, killing and call for peaceful solutions instead. We oppose the polluting and destruction of our planet. We will stand against wage and debt slavery. We demand Wall Street be held accountable and be taxed. We stand firm in support of the rights of women, men, children, indigenous peoples, the elderly, workers, LGBT people, special needs, the poor, exploited, and the disadvantaged. We see the path that the world is on and it is unsustainable. We will work with new modalities that support independence from a failed “stacked against us” system. We will foster freedom from materialism and encourage sharing, communal and urban gardening, re-use, and sticking to essentials. We promote respect for the planet and all its beings. We call for guaranteed minimum revenue for all physical persons, food sovereignty, food justice, accessible and honestly affordable healthcare, and freedom from student loan debt. We honor those activists, whistle-blowers, humanitarians, that have fought for freedom and human rights before us. The raping of our planet and its resources to benefit the 1% is an abomination that can’t stand. We will fight disparity and support actions that clothe, feed, and house humanity. As we watch our rights and freedoms infringed upon, we will mobilize a defense. We have the strength and unity of vision to carry us through the coming challenges. If you heed the call to Occupy and to recommit to our core values in 2014 and beyond, then join us and make your voices heard! For all our trials and tribulations, Occupy remains the best and brightest, hope to restore dignity. In 2014 we open our arms to you and ask you to join us! This is a year long event to rally each other to continue throughout the year to Occupy. (not a specific single day but everyday in ways we can. Dec 31rst is placed above as way to keep the post active all year long) http://www.facebook.com/events/200413986818410/

The peace walk will depart from Hope United at 10:15 a.m., followed by an 11 a.m. program at the Southfield Pavilion, located in the Southfield Municipal Complex, 26000 Evergreen Road. The program will feature remarks from Southfield Council President Donald Fracassi and MLK Task Force President Barbara Seldon as well as a keynote presentation by Sally Liuzzo Prado and Penny Liuzzo Herrington, the daughters of slain civil rights activist Viola Liuzzo. The program will also feature musical presentations from the Deep River Choir and the Southfield and Southfield-Lathurp High Schools combined choirs; presentation of the 2009 MLK Community Service Award winner; and the ringing of the Liberty Bell by the Michigan Black Horsemen. Forty-Sixth District Court Judge Shelia Johnson will serve as the emcee for the program and the ‘Celebration of Diversity Taste Fest’ will immediately follow. The 2nd annual free taste fest is sponsored by Eaton Corporation of Southfield. As part of the 2009 MLK holiday celebration, the Southfield Public Library and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Task Force are also sponsoring the “Viola Liuzzo: An Exemplary Woman in Extraordinary Times” exhibit January 15 – February 6 at the Southfield Public Library, 26300 Evergreen Road. Viola Liuzzo was a white Detroit resident, housewife and mother of five who drove to Selma, Alabama in 1965 to protest for black voter rights and to help with voter registration. Liuzzo was murdered by Ku Klux Klan members as she was driving several local marchers home in her car after a civil rights march. Southfield was the first city in the state of Michigan to hold a Dr. King peace walk or march. The first Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Peace Walk took place on January 20, 1986, commemorating the first national observance of Dr. King’s birthday. The walk continues to grow in size and scope each year, with year-long educational and community outreach activities. For more information, call Barbara Seldon, president of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Task Force, at (248) 358-0432, or visit www.MLKtaskForceMI.org
