"The problems we are facing were not created by us, but we deign to shed light on them and so we are blamed for them. The truth is, every person at our protest is there because the system is broken." Samuel Rutledge, Open Newswire, Portland Indymedia
The fascist financiers of the Money Party are growing restless. Occupy Wall Street began with a call to action from the activist online group Anonymous in August. It was barely featured in the mainstream or alternate media. Instead of a small crowd that could easily be ignored then disbursed, fifty thousand citizens showed up at the headquarters for the world financial system, Wall Street. Despite the best efforts of Mayor Bloomberg and NYPD, the Occupy Wall Street continues. The message went out to the country and the world. Now, there are over 100 occupy events in Oakland, Kansas City, Washington, DC, and elsewhere. ----------- Frequent Money Party propagandist, the New York Times explained away local government police actions against demonstrators as arising "amid growing concerns over health and public safety." Establishment tool, Mayor Sam Adams, used this excuse to attack Occupy Portland last night. The occupy camps were not "sustainable." They had to be shut "to restore public health and safety." Mayor Michael A. Nutter of Philadelphia is massing police around Occupy Philadelphia due to his concern about "growing public health and safety concerns" Note the similarity of statements by Adams and Nutter to the New York Times talking points. ----------- Time to Shut It Down
The fascists financiers of The Money Party are now paying attention. They're using the normal tactics they employ against domestic assemblies of citizens who present grievances: lies, misinformation, police bullying, police attacks, claims of "safety and public health" concerns. They'll ramp up soon to massive police actions and claim that citizens caused the coming police riots.
They have no other choice at this point. What if that 43% pubic sympathy for the Occupy Wall Street movement becomes 53% or 63%.
What if there is the possibility, no matter how slim, that real change will occur?
What if they're investigated, tried and put in jail?
