Rise up! Rise up!

Global Wave of Civil Disobedience Coming to a Street Near You!

A global non-violent grassroots civil disobedience initiative called a “Worldwide Wave of Action” is set to start this April 4 to coincide with the anniversary of the assassination of civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The idea of the Worldwide Wave of Action, which is organized by activist group Anonymous, is to encourage diverse groups around the world to creatively engage in public acts of civil disobedience, events, private acts of protest, and community-building initiatives, from Friday April 4.

The Worldwide Wave of Action has been called to confront corruption, propaganda and the outsized power of transnational corporations.

The three-month action, described as a “global uprising” by key Occupy Movement organizer David DeGraw, will start at 6:05pm in Chicago, Illinois, which is the approximate time that the civil rights movement leader was shot.

Here’s a collection of #WaveOfAction graphics that you can easily share throughout social media.

For a deeper context about why a global counter-movement to transnational capitalism is not only necessary, but the only peaceful option we have, see Snoopman’s article, Code Purple.
