Video: The Revolution Starts Now-Occupy Albuquerque

Check out Tom Solomon's excellent video of the October 15, 2011 Occupy Albuquerque event set to Steve Earle's "The Revolution Starts Now." And it does. If we want it ...

The revolution starts now 
When you rise above your fear 
And tear the walls around you down 
The revolution starts here 
Where you work and where you play
Where you lay your money down 
What you do and what you say 
The revolution starts now 
Yeah the revolution starts now 

This week, Occupy Albuquerque is organizing a week-long teach-in at the University of New Mexico. Click for details. Info on General Assembly meetings and more can be found here.

In the meantime, Occupy Wall Street has formed a "Demands Working Group" that has posted a preliminary list of demands and announced a national general assembly to be held July 4, 2012 in Philadelphia.

The Revolution Starts Now (complete lyrics)
I was walkin’ down the street
In the town where I was born
I was movin’ to a beat
That I’d never felt before
So I opened up my eyes
And I took a look around
I saw it written ‘cross the sky
The revolution starts now
Yeah, the revolution starts now

The revolution starts now
When you rise above your fear
And tear the walls around you down
The revolution starts here
Where you work and where you play
Where you lay your money down
What you do and what you say
The revolution starts now
Yeah the revolution starts now

Yeah the revolution starts now
In your own backyard
In your own hometown
So what you doin’ standin’ around?
Just follow your heart
The revolution starts now

Last night I had a dream
That the world had turned around
And all our hopes had come to be
And the people gathered ‘round
They all brought what they could bring
And nobody went without
And I learned a song to sing
The revolution starts now
