Equal Exchange worker cooperative releases statement of support of Occupy Wall Street | Grassroots Economic Organizing

Equal Exchange worker cooperative releases statement of support of Occupy Wall Street | Grassroots Economic Organizing | Workercoops | Scoop.it

Equal Exchange, a worker-owned co-op with 100 members, wishes to express our strongest support for those moved to Occupy Wall Street and other cities in the pursuit of economic and social justice. We are inspired by your direct, non-violent challenge to those most responsible for the systematic dismantling of the social contract. Corporations and their enablers in Congress have created a morally indefensible concentration of wealth at the top that has been decades in the making and is at the heart of this seemingly spontaneous outpouring of protest. And the human toll has been immense.
