More Health Care, not Warfare, more basic human needs. not corporate greed

This month of October 2011 marks the eleventh year of our country’s longest war in Afghanistan and the onset of the 2012 US federal budget, which provides unlimited funds for war and corporate greed, while withholding funds for basic human needs. On October 6th, a protest assembled at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. with the goal of “nonviolently resisting the corporate machine by occupying Freedom Plaza to demand that America's resources be invested in human needs and environmental protection instead of war and exploitation.”
I agree with the Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Washington DC movements to promote peace, not war, equality not discrimination, sustainable stewardship of our planet for all humankind, with a preference for the poor, the sick and the marginalized.
