#OccupyWallStreet Official Demands, MLK on #BasicIncome: A Reasoned Response to Accelerating Structural Inequality #99percent

Per @OccupyWallSt, "The only official demands will be off our website and the GAs."

Though if you're more anxious for demands right now, MLK made them 45 years ago.

"We are demanding an emergency program to provide employment for everyone in need of a job, or if a work program is impractical, a guaranteed annual income at levels that sustain life and decent circumstance." 
"It is now incontestable that the wealth and resources of the United States make the elimination of poverty absolutely practical." 
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community? 1967.
