Coming To A City Near You!Posted: 28 September 2011
Unless you are an activist you probably do not know too much about the recent Occupy Wall Street protests and all the bad choices the police have made in dealing with the protesters….I have written about and all my “lefty” friends have also….but not many “regular people” know that the occupation of Wall Street was not the end but the beginning of the story….
The American people are seeing that the corporate bosses are screwing the country into the ground and protests are popping up everywhere…… including in Europe……from an article in Raw Story…..
Small groups of demonstrators in major American cities have started their own “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrations and organizers are planning further actions in more cities across the United States.A diverse coalition of people have pledged to occupy Wall Street until something is done about corporate greed and the financial system’s undemocratic influence on the U.S. government.
The protesters have been camped out in New York’s old Liberty Plaza, one block from the Federal Reserve, since Saturday.
“The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99 Percent that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the one percent,” said a statement on the Occupy Wall Streetwebsite.”Occupy Los Angeles” protesters plan to begin a demonstration at City Hall on October 1. The “Occupy Los Angeles” Facebook page had nearly 2,000 likes as of Tuesday afternoon.
Another demonstration popped up in Chicago over the weekend. Around 20 “Occupy Chicago” protesters gathered at Willis Tower, formerly known as the Sears Tower, on Friday and then marched to the Federal Reserve Bank. Some protesters have remained camped out in front of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and the organizers said the “occupation” had grown from 4 people to about 50.
Other “occupation” protests are being planned for Detroit, Denver, Cleveland, Boston, Phoenix, Seattle, Kansas City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. The site occupytogether.org has been set up in hopes of coordinating the protests.
Go to the websites and see if there is an “Occupy” near you….then go and be part of the movement….be part of the solution…….let your voice be heard…..let Washington know that they are part of the problem…..let the greedy bastards know that we are tired of their shit!
The country needs YOU! The American people need YOU! Help the movement get the news out…the media will not….it is up to YOU!
