15 October 2011, the Occupy Wall St protests have gained attitude and momentum, and have spread virally across the world, calling for an end to corporate greed and injustice, and a real democracy for all human beings on this planet. Simultaneous protests happened al over the world: non-violence towards all, co-operation with police, commitment to clean occupational space, liaising with local business and acceptance of different views whether they be left, right or otherwise. In Lisbon, milliards of people took part of it as a call to stand up in solidarity without narrow political ideals for our rights to co-exist free from the bonds of political interests swayed heavily by high-end corporate greed and intentions. Jobs are being lost and the poverty line is being pushed further down as a result of the 1% gearing the financial and political systems towards their own best interest.
