<h1>Occupy's Pledge to FIGHT BACK</h1>
<h2>We Didn’t Start the Class War</h2>
- <p>The 1% have exploited their wealth to oppress the world. They’ve wrecked our economy, taken our jobs, taken our homes, and sentenced us to a lifetime of debt and war. We’ve petitioned our governments for change without redress, and fought tirelessly to elect politicians who’ve betrayed their promises. In a world where the 1% have usurped democracy and politicians refuse to serve the people, the people have but one choice—to fight back!</p>
- <p>Electoral politics have failed. For thirty years there’s been a class war, and just now are the people starting to fight back. Revolution is coming, so it falls on each and every one of us to end injustice and build a better world. We’ve been deceived our whole lives into believing the only way to create change is by voting, but now we’re learning there’s another way. Therefore we will cast the vote of resistance each day by using <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_action">direct action</a> to fight back and work towards a system that operates in the interest of all people.</p>

We’ve been deceived our whole lives into believing the only way to create change is by voting, but now we’re learning there’s another way. Revolution is coming so it falls on each and every one of us to fight for what's right. So this election year, we'll cast the vote of resistance. We will use <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_action">direct action</a> to shut this broken system down and work towards a new one that operates in the interest of <em>all</em> the world's people.</p>
