Citizens occupy Nelson Opinion by Nick Stadnyk

“This is not a protest, we are celebrating,” read one of the signs at Occupy Nelson on the afternoon of October the 15th. Hundreds of Nelsonites and people from the surrounding Kootenay area gathered before city hall to begin the occupation. The air was filled with political poetry, inspirational and satirical music, and speeches that denounced corporate greed and promoted empowerment of the individual. The Occupy Together movement was born in New York in the now well-known Occupy Wall St. Since its conception, it has swept across the globe causing peaceful demonstrations in over a thousand cities. With no formal leadership, this movement has grown organically across the globe and is gaining great momentum. Occupy Nelson was conceived a mere ten days before the actual occupation, and rallied hundreds to fill the streets. Following the initial rally, the parade started at two o’clock. The crowd walked down Vernon Street and looped back onto Baker Street. The crowd grew exponentially at the West end of Baker. Lead by the “We are the 99%” banner with the accompanying Samba band the “99%”

marched down Baker. Stopping traffic all along Nelson’s main drag, the occupation’s peaceful parade was unimpeded by any police action and seemingly well-received by the local businesses. The procession ended back at City Hall after a half-hour march. Interviews with the demonstrators revealed there was a feeling that the occupation would not impact the system. Rather it would empower and inspire the people to celebrate their own democracy and involve themselves in the greater global community. According to interview with coordinator Allan Middlemiss, the occupations motto is “to remove corporate greed from our democracy, food system and future.” This motto resonated in the crowd along with the desire to create a public forum and create a participatory democracy. The political apathy that once defined our youth is starting to die. More and more young people are starting to get involved and show their support for global change. With social media being a prevalent force in how people communicate, our global emotions are beginning to coalesce and become action.


Bus riders on the march by Robin Murray

On Thursday, Oct. 20, bus riders came out in force to march in protest to recent transit service cuts by the City of Nelson. To chants of “See how long it takes us to walk!” participants marched from the Nelson Public Library to City Hall, where they let their voices be heard. The event was organized by Nelson Transit Riders Community, a group of concerned citizens uniting to restore Sunday Transit Service, and to demand that riders be included as

stakeholders in Transit decisions. In a recent statement spokesperson Curtis Nickason says that recent service cuts mean “seniors, low income, and disabled citizens are prisoners in their own homes on Sunday as they cannot do shopping, get to work, or even attend religious observances”. He goes on to state that “Sunday Service must be restored to some level to ensure a vibrant and healthy community.”

Nelson Carshare adds an SUV to the fleet The Kootenay Carshare Co-op has experienced some exciting changes this fall; it has launched its new website:; and purchased a new vehicle: the Carshare’s first SUV! “The new website will answer all your questions about how carsharing works, give you the lowdown on the vehicles and breakdown the initial and monthly costs of membership,” says Kooteney Carshare Co-op Manager

Colleen Matte. Visitors will also find interactive features like a trip cost calculator and emissions calculator; they can link to the Carshare’s social media pages, and signup for newsletters. This fall, the Carshare purchased their first SUV. “The decision to purchase the vehicle was made based on feedback from the Carshare’s membership,” says Matte. “Members indicated they were interested

in more four wheel drive vehicles with higher clearance that could transport passengers comfortably into the backcountry.” This vehicle will help reduce emissions by allowing members to access the vehicle only when they need it and use more fuel efficient cars when they can. For more information call 250-352-2033 or visit the Carshare’s Nelson office at 410 Hall St.

Publisher’s Note: Nelson Becker

Corporations reflect individual greed The occupy movement is something new and different. In the 60’s the rallying cry was, “don’t trust anyone over 30”. At that time the struggle was very much an “us versus them” with a split down the middle. Today the movement says its 99 percent versus 1 percent. While this is more inclusive, the realty is that we all have some amount of greed inside of us. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones. The problem of inequality that we face in our soci-

ety will not be solved by legislation or electing a certain party into office, it will only be solved if our values change. I propose that we round off the 99 percent to 100 percent and learn to accept one another and our own limitations. Let us lead by example and become the change we wish to see while always remembering that behind even the most powerful corporation lays a reflection of our own greed. Lets all work together to reduce the effects of the sickness called greed.

THE ANSWERS TO LAST WEEKS SURVEY Corporate greed is a problem; agree or disagree? Strongly disagree 6.9% Disagree 6.9% Don’t care 0.0% Agree 17.2% Strongly agree 69.0% “THE times they are a changing” again... let’s hope things really take a turn for the better - less poverty, more equality. WHEN our jobs are being shipped out of the country so the corporation can make more money for personal use I’m against. Our government should stop this practice. Thanks.

I have RRSPs, so I’m a stockholder. I want the corporations that I’ve invested in to do their best to make money. WE place value on those that do nothing (shareholders). We place no value on the people who produce. It is the people who produce that drive an economy. Why do we give our lives to the wealthy?

I just finished a business degree. During that course of study we discussed ethics, and even explored the definition of ‘sociopath’... we came to the conclusion that the Corporation as a citizen is a sociopath. The problem lies in in part with corporate law, which states that the profits of the shareholder must take precedent over other considerations... so CEO’s (the ethical ones) are to some extent over a barrel until the laws change (new legal precedents are set).... and the population changes laws... so make sure you vote! I think the question is redundant as the answer is obvious. MAKE sure that people who are demonstrating know what they are supporting. It’s not about

dissing people who have worked hard and have accumulated wealth through honest means, it’s about people, yes, the 1%, who have unscrupulously gotten wealthy. I worry about low income people dissing everyone who has more than they do. I think the biggest problem is the paradigm shift society has to make from being a consumerist society to a sustainable one. THERE are people behind every corporation... It really comes down to personal greed... Corporation is just a fictitious entity. I am curious as to how would the 99% behave if they had a chance to be the ‘greedy’ 1%? That said, human nature is easily manipulated from the position of power so I am joining the revolution.

Is corporate greed a problem? HUGE divide between the rich and poor and getting worse and i am not hopeful that would change unless action is taken by the poor as well as the once called middle class who are now greatly in debt. I am au fait with the pharmaceutical industry, how it controls health care and the billions it makes. It is completely uninterested in health and only inter-

ested in making bucks. The only way to stop it is to refuse to accept the fear mongering, about blood pressure for example, and refuse to take its pills. Choose alternative medicine. EQUALITY in wealth distribution is wanted, more affordable housing prices demanded!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO one is free until all are free
