In the past 3 to 4 years something I have observed is we seem to be going through a revolution of word. This is not a bad thing to my understanding, but more of a necessary phase of the evolution of human consciousness.
What I mean when I say verbal revolution (which has not been entirely verbal) is we have been speaking out on a bigger scale than ever about things that were not common knowledge before. I good example of this is the debate on different strains of cannabis and hemp being used for many medicinal purposes, and also the debate about corruption in the pharmaceutical industry.
People questioning the true story of what happened at the world trade centre on September 11th. Concerns being raised about the American prison system for profit and the bringing to light of institutionalised racism.
The reason (in my opinion) for all these conversations starting is due (in part) to the rise in the use of smart phones, social media and the use of the internet in general.
This combined with the features to record injustice as it unfolds, share stories of healing using alternative means and hold the system accountable using the instantaneous power of a social media following has given (some) power back to the people.
Bringing all this out into the open verbally was a necessary part of the process, but it now feels like we are at a merging point between a verbal revolution and an action based one.
We have had lots of global action taking place of late, with one of the biggest stories (in alternative media) being that of standing rock. In which Energy Transfer Partners are trying to lay an oil pipeline threatening the local water supply in North Dakota.
It was announced on the 4th of December that president Obama had denied the final permit for the Dakota access pipeline, however only hours later Energy Transfer Partners released a statement saying “As stated all along, ETP and SXL are fully committed to ensuring that this vital project is brought to completion and fully expect to complete construction of the pipeline without any additional rerouting in and around Lake Oahe. Nothing this Administration has done today changes that in any way.”
This is illegal for many reasons that I cover here, however for now I think the time has come to move from verbal/action based protest to effective thought out strategies that will disrupt the illegal activities of corporations such as Energy Transfer Partners.
Many of the the actions we have been taking of late have involved people turning up and showing support for causes, however bar the social pressure for companies, this can often have little impact on their bottom line. It is time to add more pressure and this is something we are working on with a new organisation called the Conscious Media Coalition. Watch the video, as we are calling for unification of groups and a boycott on the banks supporting this pipeline.
