I went to New York to be a part of Occupy Wallstreet.
Since the raid, I’ve been the ODC and OCH.
During the spring, I’m going to keep on visiting occupies across the country.
I am participating in a protest. In a movement. And being apart of history(: 16 months ago
Øystein Fiskaaenprotest against persecution of christians in Iran, North-Korea and other bandit states.
I was in Stord with a friend of mine Protesting against the persecution of christians in bandit regimes like Iran, North-Korea, Sudan, Somalia and other states that do not respect the human rights for freedom of speech and freedom to have and change one religon.
The perscution of christians seems not to get much media coverage as it should. In Iran people get killed for converting to christianity and many people face threats and tourture in land like North-Korea and Iran. I am sick of warmongers like George Walker Bush who has not made it easier to be a christian in the middle east, war is not answer for peace in the world.
Its time for people in Norway to wake up and face the facts, our politicans are stone cold and indiffernt about the fate of millions of christians in Irans. North Korea is one of the world’s worst violators of human rights. Those who speak out against the regime are routinely tortured, killed or sent to harsh labor camps.The World leaders should react stronger to the atrocities of the North-Korean goverment treatment of their own people.I think the world leaders should be more strict with this country that are violating the human rights. 18 months ago
I don’t know that it’s “better” or “equal” but my petitioning experience for medical marijuana legalization in New York state I felt was comparable and fulfilling. It was a clear day and we were friendly. Some people were not, but others really felt compassion and motivated to consider the issue and the people it would help. What a fabulous experience.. I would recommend any engagement with those who don’t know, those who don’t care, and those who really do feel as strongly as you about an issue that stirs you up and brings you together for positive change. 3 years ago

Protest rallies aren’t what they used to be. My first protest march was against the Vietnam War (or the American War, as the Vietnamese call it). Nixon was president and I was in high school (we took the day off).
Back then, marches were covered on the nightly news and we protesters had the heady sense that we were changing the world. We stormed the streets. It was Us against Them. Nixon’s administration saw it the same way and fought back with police and federal troops—which only helped our cause.
I’m older and quieter now. My early protests have evolved to making phone calls to representatives, purchasing boycotts, and changing my behavior (like trying to persuade rather than argue and being kind, in general). I wonder what happened to all those people I stood shoulder-to-shoulder with. Back then, we seemed to have such a strong righteous sense of common good…or was I projecting my own sense of humanity on the crowd while they were marching to save their ass from being drafted? In any case, the marches were effective and helped end yet another war.
I hope all the marchers who are still marching for the common good (civil rights for all, economic transparency in the world order, reproductive rights, etc.) are as effective and successful as we were back in the day. 3 years ago
I have absolutely no idea where to start.
The things that most touch me include gay rights, animal rights and human rights.
Oohhh ooh oh. I’m a bit of a feminist.
