we got sold out

21 Oct

Banks got bought out / We got sold out!
Banks got bought out / We got sold out!
Banks got bought out / We got sold out!

This chant reverberated through the streets of downtown San Francisco on October 15 as Occupy SF gathered force. An occasional drumbeat or the sound of a trombone or another instrument contributed to the chants. The power, however, resonated solely from the vocal chords of the hundreds gathered on a Saturday afternoon, the 99% of Americans asking the 1% who own most of America, to share the wealth.

This was not exactly “music” but it had rhythm and soul.

Show me what democracy looks like / This is what democracy looks like.
Show me what democracy looks like / This is what democracy looks like.
