Occupy Freiburg

About 200 people gathered in Augustiner Platz in Freiburg, Germany, in support of the occupy movement.  Though not a very large city, Freiburg is quite international and thus hosted speakers from not only Germany, but from Spain, America, France, and beyond.

They continue to meet every Sunday to voice their opinions and suppressed feelings, whatever they may be.  German is the main language spoken, however there are usually people willing to translate.

United for Global Change

Tomorrow, the 15th of October, there will be demonstrations across the globe in solidarity with the movement that began at grass roots, stretched to wall street and is now all around us.  I'm proud to go out tomorrow and show my frustration with the system that has proven to be less than functional time and time again.  Tomorrow I will go out and stand for my fellow graduates who also can't find work and have loan companies breathing down their necks to pay back the exorbitant amount of money they spent to become educated.  This has been a pain in my side for far too long, and now it's time to get out and join with others who share the sentiment.

Freiburg - 15.00 in Augustinerplatz.  Come one, come all.

Occupy your street.

Many of you may have heard about the "Occupy Wall Street" movement that began in New York and has since spread accross America and even the World.

If you're out of work or stuck working in a job you're over qualified for because there was no other choice. If you can't afford the education you desire and/or need or if you have thousands in debt from your education. If you're out on the streets or living a comfortable life but recognize the injustices done unto others. If you can't afford a decent meal. If you pay your taxes. If you feel your voice is not being heard.

If you care about your future...
Get up, go out and show your solidarity! Occupy your street!

And spread the word!

On October 15th, there is going to be a Worldwide Protest. Check out the link for info on a protest nearest you.  If there isn't one nearby, organize one!!!  This is your chance.  Everyone is getting up and rallying in solidarity, so now is the time to get your voice heard.

First day of October and the air is fresh.

I've neglected my blog, basically all summer long, so you can expect numerous back-dated entries to come with photos from my summer adventures.  But for now, off to the FloMarkt.

For your viewing pleasure, this is the newest (pretty sure, at least) music video from one of my favorite bands, Gotye. They're on tour now, actually.  Check 'em out.
