Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
The worldwide Occupy movement began on Sept. 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, in the Wall Street financial district of New York City. Initiated by the Canadian activist group, Adbusters, the gathering protested social and economic inequality and it soon inspired similar protests around the world.
On May Day, Occupy holds an International Workers Day General Strike, building on the international celebration of May Day and other general and student strikes, the Occupy movement has called for A Day Without the 99%, when workers, students, immigrants and the unemployed will stand together in 125 U.S. countries for economic justice.
"Together as One" is the new anthem for the Occupy movement, celebrating the power of the people and emphasizing the need to end poverty and homelessness. "Together as One" has been played on Air Occupy, KUNM and radio stations and shared on Facebook and Twitter.
Written by Eric Heithaus , Jeff Nelson and Josh Reed, and arranged by Nelson, "Together as One" combines music, videos, footage and photographs of Occupy protests around the country, interspersed with stark facts about the homeless and poverty rates and other economic indexes.
"Together as One" offers a poignant look at the rise of the Occupy movement, and the conditions that have economically brought the country to its knees. With Angel Diamond on lead vocals, Jimmy Russell and Faith Amour singing backup and Reed singing rap, the song also features Heithaus and Steve Hill on guitar and Nelson on bass and synths.
