I am Occupied/Yo Soy Occupado

Poverty, Race and the "Occupation" movements

By Tiny



Still no resound to be

from the night nor ground

the left nor right giving sound

no riotous revelry. . . . yet!


yet the blood does violently run

to its highest point from within the young

no longer quite with frustration

no longer thrilled by morbid caution

Dark Streets








Someday the Poor Will Run Wall Street

I am a low-income, African-American mother of four. I have worked all my life.  1 year ago after the all the rich people working downtown as bankers and investors were paid 7 billion dollars, my landlord was foreclosed on. I have never owned a house and probably never will, because i will never have that kind of money or credit. But i have rented a rent-controlled apartment which i was evicted out of because of the foreclosure.

Now i am homeless with my children.
