Every child should have the rights of protection from adult subject matter in the public arena. We are Occupy Cultural Media and our demands: the have the federal government ratify/enforce the ERA and the UN's Convention for the Rights of the Child (CRC), petition enforced regulation on the FTC and the FCC. The creators of this massive cultural influence control a multi-billion dollar industry that profits greatly at the expense of our children. By allowing this industry to own the message we have been complicit in its delivery. By allowing constant bombardment of our children with hyper- sexualized images, we are grooming our girls to believe they are objects to be scrutinized and used for sexual pleasure. We are grooming our boys to be aggressors incapable of experiencing truly intimate relationships. Sadly, we have created a fabric of cultural influence where both genders suffer in immeasurable ways. At Occupy Cultural Media, with decades’ worth of supporting statistics, we are claiming an emotional and mental state of emergency for our younger citizens. Our goal through this movement is to reclaim the public dialogue and space via all media for our children, for our women, for our men. We are supporters of the rights of free speech and freedom of expression.
We do not believe in censorship.
