Had a blast at #OccupySF Global Solidarity March. Never screamed that much consecutively in my life! What a feeling of unity and love!

One of the #OccupySF march chants that I liked: "Tell me how democracy looks like? THIS is what democracy looks like!"

One more of the #OccupySF march chants that I liked: "Get off the sidewalk! Get on to the streets!" It called on the crowd to join us. Nice.

So #OccupySF aimed to release "Purple" by raising $5,000 on the spot. I pitched in too but did we make it to our goal? Has he been freed?

💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

@terrapin_sf Yeah. If we've reached it then he's supposed to be released TODAY. I'll wait for their formal annoucement on their website.

Since I appear to be the only person tweeting in double-byte letters at #OccupySF I guess I was the only Japanese there representing Japan?

If #OWS occupiers go viral & withdraw savings from banks around the globe, it will affect the world economy and govts will opt to stop it.

One way G20 govts can do that is they can secretly agree on intnl arrangements to restrict internet use and increase surveillance. #OWS

17/10/2011 06:22:33 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS we have to remain vigilant in what govts might do to restrict our internet infrastructure which is the lifeline of our movement.

17/10/2011 06:24:10 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS This is indeed a global citizens revolution. We are at war with govts that fail to govern and uphold their allegiance to their people.

17/10/2011 06:27:08 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS Let's take back what is rightfully ours worldwide and bring justice and accountability for all of the 99%s in the entire globe, NOW.

💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS The million withdrawal tactics needs more thought. Population in each ctry varies and big countries like Japan might not be affected.

17/10/2011 06:39:57 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS No of withdrawals for each ctry should be tactically tailored to its economic size, population, and demography. We need targets.

@simski1945 I think They are way ahead of us in preparing but they are under the clout of the internet system. Wonder how that plays. #ows

#OWS Nation states need to review what the condition of statehood is. You need a nation governed by a "competent" govt. Nation can choose.

17/10/2011 06:56:42 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS Incompetent govts, by definition, must be replaced. Nation can choose govts to declare statehood of their liking.

17/10/2011 06:58:37 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS http://t.co/t7NQhqHl << This is a globally recognized right. It's called "the right to national self-determination". Govts be aware.

💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS They've been misuse of the term "failed state" in the global community. It's not just govts that sponsor genocide or human rights abuse

17/10/2011 07:03:32 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS Any state that lacks a competent govt to exercise good governance, provide food, health, and shelter should be called a failed state.

17/10/2011 07:05:36 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS In a nutshell, we live in a world of failed states. And they're not minority. They're the other 99% that needs to be overthrown.

17/10/2011 07:07:43 WIB
💫T.Katsumi🌏OfficeBALÉS @tkatsumi06j

#OWS So, the 99% of world citizens must unite to overthrow the same 99% of failed states, to restore statehood in its truest sense.
