Occupy Cape Town Parliament Gardens - Peaceful Protest Event is in Planning Stage.
Date: October 15th 2011
We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.
On October 15th 2011 , we want to see 20,000 people to flood into Cape Town CBD, set up beds, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Cape Town Parliament Gardens.
Watch: Nobody Can Predict The Moment Of Revolution
Like our brothers and sisters at Wall Street and in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in South Africa. We also encourage the use of nonviolence to achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants.
Who is Occupy Cape Town Parliament Gardens - Operation Ubuntu?
Occupy Cape Town Parliament Gardens in collaboration with Occupy Johannesburg Stock Exchange Square - Operation Ubuntu is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.
The original call for this occupation was published by Adbusters in July; since then, many individuals across the USA have stepped up to organize the event Occupy Wall Street, such as the people of the NYC General Assembly and US Day of Rage . There'll also be similar occupations in the near future such as October2011 in Freedom Plaza, Washington D.C.
Now we would like to see if you are willing to Occupy Parliament Gardens.
Who are you?
Are you looking for an email, you don't find who are the organizers of the event, you find lots of manifesto, you are not sure if there is an official site, are you wondering about us?
But the answer is: who are you?
October 15th its a day where people of the world will show they are tired of the world as it is, will take to the streets and start to work for a global change. Nobody has to tell them what to fight for, nobody has to give magic solutions, nobody has to lead the way.
If the call for October 15th belongs to someone, that is you!. Take the ownership of the call, launch it as if you were the main organizer, do the manifesto you want, disseminate it by all media you have, do from it whatever you believe in.
So if people ask you, who is behind the call, you know what to answer, "I am".
Because that is what we need, that people take back the world by themselves, with no partys, unions, associations who tells them what to do, just gathering together, using collective inteligence to start thinking what to do with this planet.
October 15th the world will be under our influence. It will become whatever we want.
So, who are you?
Operation Ubuntu - Ubuntu is a Nguni word which has no direct translation into English, but is used to describe a particular African worldview in which people can only find fulfilment through interacting with other people. Thus is represents a spirit of kinship across both race and creed which united mankind to a common purpose.
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has said "Ubuntu is very difficult to render into a Western language…It is to say. 'My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in what is yours'…"
One definition is: a person is a person through other persons.
