Default #occupywallstreet

Has anyone else heard of this?



On September 17, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months. Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices.

Tahrir succeeded in large part because the people of Egypt made a straightforward ultimatum – that Mubarak must go – over and over again until they won. Following this model, what is our equally uncomplicated demand?

Not heard about this at all - but it sounds like an awesome idea - Power to the People

We were in London over the weekend, and noticed the tents erected around Parliament Square in protest to the occupation of Afghanistan - there didn't seem to be too much going on tbf, but i couldn't help think that if there were 1000 tents, or even 100 tents - then it might start to make a difference.

The trouble is with people in the UK, they seem to domesticated (on the whole - me included lol) to actually make a stand.

Good luck to them

Good luck to them indeed, they are going to need it. Of all the places to protest Wall Street may be one of the toughest places to do it. It will be interesting to see how many they get to do it. But if the US defaults it would give them a big shot in the arm.

The rozzers don't want the idyll "DEMOCRACY NOT CORPORATOCRACY" - they will want to hang onto their power (assumed power) and likely will take whatever measures they can to defend their reality of CORPORATOCRACY over DEMOCRACY - the worlds eyes will be on their every maneuver though - it will be interesting to see how they react.

If they react with force, then they acclaim that DEMOCRACY fails before CORPORATOCRACY, they show their true allegiance (stanse against democracy) and the house of cards starts to fall.

They might very well find themselves stuck inbetween the rock and the proverbial hard place.

The problem seems to be in the US when there is A demo of any kind the police brutally come down on it and the corporate media dont report it and it never happend..A bit like the spanish reveloution..I know few people in Spain who were even aware of it.
I think letting the sheeple know its happening is key.

This is also where Britain falls down - there doesn't seem to be enough pro-activision and media attention.

In France when the Gvt do something that the peeps disagree with, they go out and do something about it, protest, blockade etc - University fees in France - meh, they'd have the country in lockdown in less than a week

The generic programming is key to apathy....... Getting the word out through bloggs and social networking must be key to seeing a successful foundation and growth of public interest and then the media interest fed by public demand allows the entire arena to go viral.

It's the first I have heard of this and I really like it. Hopefully some of the recently and soon to be laid off Wall Street workers will join in.

Huffington Post
June 22, 2011
NEW YORK -- Layoffs have returned to Wall Street as investment banks bemoaning economic malaise and disappointing revenues are moving to pare their payrolls, by far their largest expense.

Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have announced plans to eliminate hundreds of employees, UBS and Credit Suisse are reportedly preparing to cut thousands of jobs and Barclays Capital has already imposed two rounds of layoffs this year.

But as banks again resort to pink slips, they appear inclined to spare the most generously compensated executives -- the people who enjoyed the biggest gains from the bubble in mortgage-related investments that savaged the economy -- while instead dismissing less-expensive employees.

In June, Barclays Capital cut employees, including first-year analysts who had been hired last year out of college to work in the New York investment banking division, a person familiar with the situation told The Huffington Post. Morgan Stanley released plans earlier this year to lay off up to 300 workers in its retail brokerage, including trainees. At Goldman Sachs, employees losing their jobs will include "junior people," the firm's chief financial officer said during a conference call this week.

"Length of time at the firm doesn't matter, it doesn't help you," said Kim Woodle, 54, who was laid off from his job as a computer programmer at Morgan Stanley in 2009, in the midst of the Great Recession

when white collars get laid off with the blue collars, its good to see them unite instead of peeps giving it the "haaaaaaa"

its seen as wise to shit in only one part of the wood, otherwise you may find yourself in something rather unpleasant of your own doing
