When in the course of the Third Age it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political and economic bonds that bind them, a decent respect to the opinions of The Peoples of Middle Earth require that they should declare the causes which impel them to this separation.


We the Orcs of Mordor have hereby gathered, as is our right under Eru, to demand a redress of grievances that have arisen through the continual betrayal of the People by their government. We work solely in solidarity with the international Occupy movement that began (tragically) with #Occupy Valinor by the Numenorians in the year 3319 of the Second Age, continuing through the Third Age and most recently manifesting itself (gloriously) in #Occupy Lonely Mountain just a few years ago.

For thousands of years the Orcs of Morder lived in harmony with the land, gradually improving their lot on this Middle-Earth. But in these last years, dark powers and trolls have usurped our wealth, growing rich off our labor while we suffer the lash. The legitimate government of Mordor has allowed itself to be covertly replaced by a "shadow government" comprised of 'An Eye' and 'Nine Mortal Men', none of whom were elected.


The government has allowed itself, in its quest for War, to be purchased by troll corporations and has allowed economic power to dictate its policies;


The government has betrayed the trust of the People by allowing itself to be corrupted by corporate trolls at the expense of the common good;


The government has misled those who have chosen to dedicate their lives to the defense of Mordor, claiming that Men and Elves are the enemy, when indeed it is the troll one percent who have sucked the orcblood out of our country;


The government, with its never-ending so-called 'War of Terror', has denuded the country; where once were fruitful plains now are slag heaps;


The government

   a. Has denied us health care when we are wounded.
   b. Has provided us with no education other than in the firing of poorly constructed bows.
   c. Has denied us the right to organize slave unions.

Therefore we, the Orcs of Mordor, declare:

We have labored in the Shadow too long.

We have been duped and enslaved.

We have died too many deaths.

And so we Proclaim to All of Middle Earth:

We are legion.

We have #Occupied Barad-dûr.

We Will re-#Occupy all of Mordor.

We Will Not Be Moved.

We are the 99%

p.s. Give our regard to Broadway (at 14th Street, In Oakland)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
