My apologizes in advance if this has been previously posted. Youtube has "age restricted" the video for its protest violence. (You'll need to register an account with Youtube to verify your +18 age.) For those not wanting a Youtube account the vid is posted otherwise without requirements: (thanks to DrFood for the link): I AM NOT MOVING (NOT a Youtube link)


I AM NOT MOVING - Short Film - Occupy Wall Street posted to Youtube by Corey Ogilvie, the Editor, October 10, 2011. At the time of this post here there were 6,704 views.

UPDATE:  Video transcription provided in comments below by orangecurtainlib. Many thanks for your contribution.


   The people of the Middle East like people everywhere, are seeking a chance to contribute and to have a role in the decisions that will shape their lives.  Leaders need to respond to these aspirations, and to help build that better future for all.  They need to view civil society as their partner, not as a threat.  


   I want to take this opportunity to update the American people about the situation in Libya.  Last month, protesters took to the streets across the country to demand their universal rights and a government that is responsible to them and responsive to their aspirations; but they were met with an iron fist


   Freedom of assembly , Freedom of expression and Freedom of the Press, are pillars of an open and inclusive society, there is a clear responsibility, by the Egyptian government to hold accountable, those responsible for these attacks


   For months, the Iranian people, have sought nothing more than to exercise their universal rights.  We call upon the Iranian government, to abide by the international obligations, that it has to respect the rights of it’s own people.  We call for the immediate release of all that have been unjustly retained.  I am confident that history will be on the side of those that seek justice.


   We are against violence and, we would call to account the Iranian government that is once again, using it’s security forces and resorting to violence, to prevent the free expression of ideas from their own people.  


   Instead of respecting the rights of his own people, Ghaddafi chose the path of brutal suppression.  Innocent civilians were imprisoned,  (OWS Protester Female: “I have not been read my rights, I have not been told why I am being detained.  OWS Protester Male: “We want to know the people who are in there. We want to know all their names, and what they are being charged with).  And in some cases beaten, (OWS voice “He can’t breath officer, please get off his neck ) …campaign of intimidation and repression began.  


   It is the responsibility of the government of Libya, to respect the universal rights of their own people; including their right to free expression and assembly


   Demonstrators have been beaten, attached, it is absolutely clear that the Syrian government is running out of time

OWS Protester Male:

   Each new depiction of the abuses of the police on the first amendment, the more people will show up here in NYC, and the more waves of occupation will spread across this county   And you should be proud of that police, because you participating in our media publicity campaign.  Thank you for attending.


   What is absolutely clear, it that we are witnessing history unfold. It’s a moment of transformation, that’s taking place because the people of Egypt are calling for change.  They have turned out in extraordinary numbers, representing all ages, and all walks of life, but, it is young people who have been at the forefront. A new generation, your generation, who want their voices to be heard.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
