Willie Nelson “Stands with Humanity” In Occupy Support Video
October 24, 2011

In this simple video, country singer Willie Nelson and his wife Annie D'Angelo recite a poem of support for the Occupy Wall Street protestors. The video offers a statement of solidarity with the Occupy movement, and includes some gently funny lines, considering Willie's history of tax troubles: "The whole tax setup is a little unfair / But some of us don't mind paying our share / We're the ones that we've been waiting for / We're the ones with the 99".

The couple sends their best wishes from afar: "...even though all our bodies can't be there, we'll be there in spirit because we really care". They also mention "Z Park", which is a reference to Zucotti Park in New York City where the protestors are camped out.
