OWS: Inspired, Michael Moore calls on Americans to participate

Published: Saturday 22 October 2011

Michael Moore: “The real agenda item is what everyone is going through, the lack of jobs, the reduced income, reduced sick days, no health insurance… these are all now going to be the issues.”

Keith and ac­tivist/film­maker Michael Moore dis­cuss how the Oc­cupy move­ment takes issue with both De­moc­rats and Re­pub­li­cans for ac­cept­ing cam­paign con­tri­bu­tions from the same com­pa­nies re­spon­si­ble for the re­ces­sion. “These politi­cians by and large are bought and paid for by the same peo­ple.” Moore sus­pects that if any po­lit­i­cal can­di­dates at the local level told the peo­ple they would not take Wall Street con­tri­bu­tions, they would gar­ner more votes. Moore calls on both Dems and the GOP to “get on board” with the Oc­cupy move­ment “or get out of the way.”
