First of all, I want to thank you for the tremendous work you do on your site. I write you this letter, because the question to which I appeal to you, is very serious. It requires an understanding of the situation in the World generally in economy and politics, education and ecology. And which concerns the movement "Occupy Wall Street".
Recent events in Cairo, show that the power in Egypt seized the military, who are trying to enact laws of a military dictatorship. I send you two links that confirm this fact.
It is highly likely to occur in other countries where dictatorial regime was overthrown, but was not put up clear requirements for what should be a new country, new government and new laws.
We also like you want to change our world and our lives.
We want the movement "Occupy Wall Street" became strong and could really influence the important events and decisions of the Government.
Our project was created for people to express their demands in the Internet, so this will could be executed in an official document.
The demands, which are equally important for both Muslims and Christians, Americans, and Russian.
More about the project on www.signmanifesto.org
We ask you to support this project in every possible way. For example to publish this letter on your website, place a widget for sign Manifesto your site.
Below we publish the text from our website About Manifesto
We look forward to working with you.
In analyzing what is happening now with “Occupy Wall Street” and other social protest movements, the questions arise: “Why do many of them not get the desired results? Why do people who see the need for change, people who know how to realize this needed change in the various spheres of life, not use the existing legal way of expressing their will?”
Meaningful protests or demonstrations can be furthered by the drafting of a clearly stated and formalized petition or manifesto, which is signed by the protesters and supportive organizations.
Otherwise they leave no lasting trace and, in many cases, do not bring about any major change.
Let “Occupy Wall Street” be different.
This is an appeal to those who go out into the streets to protest and to those who cannot go for various reasons (busy, sick, fear).
We have to create and initiate a well-defined, united, and official procedure for the implementation of our vision and for bringing about the necessary changes in the economy, finance, politics, medicine, business, education and environment.
We need to take action now, when so many bright minds are coming together and to begin to build a new world and a new relationship, by creating a Manifesto. This would find support from many people, organizations, foundations, and trade unions.
The Internet has created ideal conditions for the unity, communication and coordination between people. We strongly invite people to take part in this discussion on the Internet, Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media. For this reason we started writing the text of this Manifesto.
The idea is that it will constantly be updated in accordance with the requirements of the time and with the spiritual and technological development of society.
Each revised version will build upon the previous version, just like the new release of computer software and include new additions. Each new change or addition will retain authorship.
It's a free Manifesto, open to any interested person to contribute to, edit, and develop. The most valuable suggestions and timely ideas will be incorporated into the text of this Manifesto. This will be an on-going process.
We see thisl Manifesto as a new mechanism to support the general interaction between people of all countries with international organizations, and governments. This is a mechanism through which the will of the people can be transmitted freely, openly, and honestly, without bureaucratic interference.
This mechanism would also eliminate the opportunity for the authorities to forcefully disperse demonstrators, and to harm and harass them with clubs, tear gas projectiles, and other methods of control.
When enough people sign the Manifesto and create a large enough critical mass, the collective voice of this critical mass will be impossible to ignore.
This allows us to express our social activism and interests in a safer, united, and organized manner.
