STATEMENT IN SOLIDARITY WITH OCCUPY LOS ANGELES

 The following statement is in response to the threatened closure of Occupy Los Angeles by city officials at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, November 28, 2011

 Atlanta, GA – The United States Human Rights Network (USHRN) stands in full solidarity with Occupy Los Angeles and the Occupy Movement. Occupy LA and the Occupy movement have issued a clarion call to the exploiters and the exploited, sending a clear message that the violation of the fundamental economic, social and cultural rights of the 99% will no longer be tolerated.
 

We stand opposed to the initiatives of the authorities on all levels of government to destroy the Los Angeles Commune. And we pledge to do everything within our power to fully expose the schemes of the FBI and mercenary forces like the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) to undermine and destroy the Occupy Communes throughout the country, simply because they don’t adhere to the political program of the Democrats or the Republicans.

These violations of the civil and political rights of the 99% will not be tolerated. We will resist and we will win.

Solidarity Forever!

Kali Akuno, Acting Co-Director

US Human Rights Network

The primary goal of the United States Human Rights Network, an Atlanta-based coalition of more than 300 organizations from around the country, is to increase the visibility of the US human rights movement and link U.S.-based human rights activists with the global human rights movement.  Its National Conference and Members Meeting will be held Dec. 9 – 11, 2011, at the Radisson LAX Hotel. The Network’s biannual conference comes to the city during a time of unprecedented discontent with the nation’s Depression Era-level joblessness and growing economic inequality.  Due to the Network’s firm belief that economic rights are also human rights, the USHRN stood in full support of the Occupy Movement in Los Angeles and other cities since their inception, protesting the collusion of government and economic elites.  www.ushrnetwork.org
