#GreenPirateAlliance -- [alternative energy, environmental protection; open internet, open government; legalized marijuana]
... our goal is to encourage #Occupy to embrace the Pirate Party
We support both PPI and WPP [World Pirate Party] strategies.
Below is the WPP manifesto (as presented by Adbusters):
We, the people of Planet Earth, hereby launch the World Pirate Party, a global horizontal people’s party for all those who are ready to stand up for and fight for our blue-green-black platform:
Blue – the color of intellect and imagination – stands for mental environmentalism and our party’s commitment to the vision of internet democracy championed by the Pirate Parties of Europe.
Green – the hue of Earth and immortality – stands for the four-decade-strong resistance movement against environmental degradation which we must win for a sane, sustainable future.
Black – the tenor of struggle and justice – stands for our party’s promise to abolish corporate personhood and institute a new global world order in which corporations bow to the will of the people.

Disclaimer: OTP (Occupy The Polls) is not an "officially" endorsed #occupy page. We have been involved with Occupy since day 1 (Sept 17, 2011), but the movement has always had a somewhat ambiguous stance on the utility of voting. Understandably. We feel, however, that in addition to occupying, citizens need to become radically politicized.

The last two times Crispin Odey, billionaire hedge fund owner and manager of Odey Asset Management spoke, he handed out extra generous portions of fire and brimstone, saying that in due course "equities will be devastated" and that the looming #recession will be "remembered for 100 years."

After raising more in 24 hours than each of the declared GOP candidates individually, Vermont senator and self-described democratic socialist Bernie Sanders went on ABC’s This Week to let America—and the D.C. pundit class that has already written him off—know he’s a real player in 2016.

The former lead vocalist of The Fugees made the announcement in a message on her Facebook page addressed to “Friends and Fans in Israel.”
“When deciding to play the region, my intention was to perform in both Tel Aviv and Ramallah,” Hill writes. “Setting up a performance in the Palestinian Territory, at the same time as our show in Israel, proved to be a challenge.”
Attack Islam and be called a racist. But what race are you supposed to hate?
#Indonesia has by far the most Muslims of any place in the world; therefore, you must be racist towards the #Javanese, whom you may not even know exist.
#Pakistan has the second most Muslims; therefore, you may be racist against #Punjabis if you know of them.
#India has third most Muslims scattered among many Indian ethnic groups; therefore, you must be racist towards all #Indians.
#Bangladesh has the fourth most Muslims; therefore, you must be racist towards the #Bengali if you know of them.
Hence, the nonsense that you are racist for attacking Islam is just that: complete nonsense.
Don’t hate Germans or Nazis, but do hate #Nazism. Don’t hate Arabs or #Muslims, but do hate Islam. Attacking an #ideology is not racist. To hate Nazism is not racist. To hate #Stalinism is not racist. To hate Maoism is not racist. To hate #Islam and #Sharia is not racist, but survival for culture and social progress. The irrational and illogical want #Muslims to make peace with #Israel when they cannot even make peace between #Sunni, #Shiite, and #Sufi. Shia and Sunni started murdering each other in 632 A.D. in a fight over succession after Muhammad died that has never stopped. Muslims and are still fighting Hindus, Christians, and Buddhists around the world. Hate the poisons #Islam and #Sharia, but love and pray for their victims: Muslim worshipers of the two true pagan idols in Mecca, the temple and the meteorite inside it that they inherited from the Yemeni moon and star worshipers. Idols claim to point to, represent, signify, or symbolize God. That is why they are idols, because things cannot point to, represent, signify, or symbolize God. The money from oil is funding terrorism. We must switch to solar, wind, and electric even faster. #Palestinians, why does #Egypt have to #wall its borders with you to protect itself from mad Muslims?
The report was released by the Israeli human rights NGO Breaking the Silence, made up of active and reserve duty soldiers. The group’s mission is to shed light on the IDF’s war practices.
Titled "This is How we Fought in Gaza," the report paints an alarming picture of how the Israeli military’s lenient and permissive rules of engagement led to the senseless death of unarmed civilians and much of the carnage in the Gaza Strip, during the 50-day "Operation Protective Edge."
