Watch the Video | Share It With Your Local OCCUPY Group

Dear Friend,

While the growing Occupy movement targets the 1 Percent, we want to introduce you to the elite among the gang of the superrich: the war profiteersHelp give your local Occupy group the tools they need to fight corporate power by sharing our new video with them and posting it on your social networks.

War industry CEOs make tens of millions of dollars a year, putting them in the top 0.01 percent of income earners in the U.S.

  • Northrop Grumman CEO Wes Bush made $22.84 million last year.

  • Lockheed Martin CEO Robert Stevens made $21.89 million.

  • Boeing CEO JamesMcNerney: $19.4 million.

These guys use their corporations’ massive lobbying dollars to keep their job-killing gravy train rolling. Last year, their companies spent a whopping $46 million on lobbying, corrupting our politics and ensuring that their bank accounts continue to fatten at our expense. These executives are some of the main reasons why we’re wasting so much on war instead of rebuilding our own nation here at home.

We have been deeply inspired by the incredible activism of the Occupy movement, so we created this new video to help highlight a piece of their messaging that’s essential to getting our country back on track: We have to end wars for profit.

Help us expose these war profiteers for what they are: the 0.01 Percent. Find your local Occupy group on Facebook and ask them to show our latest video at their events and on their Livestreams. Then, visit our Facebook page to tell us how it went!

Sincerely,

Derrick Crowe, Robert Greenwald
and the Brave New Foundation team
