12-07-11 OccupyMARINES July 8, 2012 Press Release - defining document of the Robber Baron Revival Era
Crystallized message from OccupyMarines - focusing on corruption of the justice system, and betrayal of the US Constitution by senior officers of all three branches of government.

OccupyMARINES in the 2012 NATGAT, Philadelphia, and Smedley Butler (1881-1940) - the inspiration. View as PDF:

Los Angeles and Jerusalem, July 12 - "The OccupyMARINES Press Release, issued in the aftermath of the 2012 NATGAT in Philadelphia, is likely to be remembered as the defining document of our time," says Joseph Zernik, PhD, of Human Rights Alert (NGO).
• The document is remarkable for its brevity, in contrast to previous statements from the Occupy

• In a true military style, the problem, and its remedies are crystallized into three points: o o o

Repealing of the NDAA Overturning of Citizens United Exposing and indicting the 1%.

• The authors show a clear sense of the document's historic significance, and the gravity of our times, by

invoking Smedley Butler's name. The document reflects cognizance of the widespread corruption of the US justice system and betrayal of the US Constitution by senior officers of all three branches of government. Given the Marines' reputation for tenacity, the OccupyMARINES Press Release is also likely to carry a large weight in the current turmoil "The OccupyMARINES Press Release focuses on three ways that today's ruling class established its superiority to the law - the defining feature of our time - the Robber Baron Revival Era," sums it Dr Zernik.
