Occupy Wall St.

Does Our Voice Matter? Does Your Voice Matter?

The Occupy Movement started in NYC on September 17th and has grown into a worldwide movement that has protests going on in over 200 cities across America and has even spread across continents. In NYC there has been an incredible outpouring of support from the general public as well as the larger work unions.

From the beginning of this peaceful protest the NYPD have committed horrible acts of police brutality and arrested thousands of people, infringing on the Amendments that give Americans the right to peacefully assemble. The Higher Concept (THC) has visited these amazing protestors down in Liberty Plaza, and were upset to see how unfamiliar our friends and family with the protests based on the little coverage it has received in mainstream media outlets.  Inspired by the voice of the people, THC wrote a song and put together a music video showcasing what has been happening in NYC over the past three weeks. The video showcases the police brutality and is our attempt to help get the word out about this movement, which is attempting to bring the power back to the people of our once great country.

The media is not bringing much light to the movement and as big as it has become, few still even know that it exists.  The purpose of THC covering this historical event is to make others aware of what is happening, and to show that every voice matters. even yours.  We urge you to post this video on your blog so more people can be aware of what is going on across the country. We hope our song/video, with your help, will bring more people aboard. Join us in doing something about the corruption before it’s to late.  Please also visit any of the numerous websites run by the citizens that are more heavily involved in the Occupy Movement. Thank you for your time.
