Occupy Wall Street Marks One Month

18-10-2011 11:18

Clinton & Egyptian-Activists
Is Occupy Wall Street Another Colored Revolution? “Manufacturing Dissent” ... There is a grassroots protest movement unfolding across America, which includes people from all walks of life, from all age groups, conscious of the need for social change and committed to reversing the tide. The grassroots of this movement constitutes a response to the “Wall Street agenda” of financial fraud and manipulation which has served to trigger unemployment and poverty across the land. Does this movement constitute in its present form an instrument of meaningful reform and social change in America? What is the organizational structure of the movement? Who are its main architects? Has the movement or segments within this movement been co-opted? This is an important question, which must be addressed by those who are part of the Occupy Wall Street Movement as well as those who, across America, support real democracy.

St Paul's protests - Who is fleecing us and how?

17-10-2011 09:57

Yesterday I went around the "village" hearing a lot and telling a lot with anyone that wanted to tell and hear.

No doubt there is a lot of peaceful passion. But there's still enormous confusion around what exactly is the problem.

1. We know we are being fleeced big time.
2. We know from which direction we are being fleeced.
3. But we don't know exactly who is fleecing us, nor how.

This makes our case very poor in the eyes of the sleeping majority and the media.
