article imageGearing up for May 12 protests — United for global change

By Anne Sewell     May 11, 2012 in World
With only a few hours to go, people worldwide are getting ready to head to the streets to make their voices heard. Will you be among them?
As reported on Digital Journal recently May 12, 2012 will see a worldwide demonstration, a peaceful revolution in cities all over the planet, on virtually every continent.
Since this earlier reporting, more "red dots" have appeared on the worldwide map which can be viewed here and on another map here.
Sometimes dubbed "Global Evolution", often called the "Global Spring", each event will have its own unique theme.

Whatever the theme of the event, people are uniting globally to say "Enough is enough". With the loss of basic human rights in so many countries and privacy being taken away from mankind step by step, it is time to make a stand.
The world is in crisis - people are going hungry, cannot find employment, losing healthcare, losing their homes and education is deteriorating. The constant threat of war hanging over their heads is terrifying, as the U.S. continues with its so-called "war on terror".
