Charles Ferguson’s film – Inside Job – won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 2011. It narrates the conflicts of interest between the finance industry, politicians, academics and regulators, which eventually led to the trillion-dollar collapse of 2008. Narrated by Matt Damon.

Occupy Edmonton to Launch Online Help Line and Solidarity Squads.
Edmonton, AB – Occupy Edmonton has decided to launch two new programs as they continue to push for systems that work for people not against them.
The first program they are launching is an online help request service called ‘Occupy Solidarity Squads’. Personal examples of injustice happen all the time and most people have to face them alone. ‘Occupy Solidarity Squads’ aim to change that. The online form allows people to confidentially submit their personal stories and requests for support to Occupy Edmonton. Specific stories will be selected and then the group will act to try to get the person the little bit of justice they deserve.
“If someone is screwed over by a bank, by an employer, by government red tape, they no longer have to face it all alone – now they have a group, a solidarity squad, and a movement to back them up,” said Phil Shaw with Occupy Edmonton. “The system wants to keep us separate, to keep us apart because it knows that collective action produces results. So we have set up a local Solidarity Squad and put the word out that no boardroom is safe, no corrupt bank deal will go unchecked, and no more will we deal with these attacks alone. We are together now, we have seen each others faces, we have slept and occupied together, and now we will respond collectively. And we will respond everywhere.”
Example stories could be a veteran not getting the full benefits they deserve and fought for or a worker injured on the job not getting the workers compensation they were promised. You can see the help form online at http://occupyedmonton.org/ask-us-for-help/
The other program Occupy Edmonton is launching is ‘flash occupations’. These are occupations that will take place for as little as 10 mins to as long as 24hrs. The occupations are designed to highlight issues of injustice and push for the 8-demands the group released last week.
Occupy Edmonton is united with groups and movements around the world that want a system that works for, not against, the 99% of us.

We, the 99% know Harper and his friends want more mining and tar sands projects, not real climate solutions and emission reductions.
We will not let the planet be killed in silence.
