World "Occupy Wall Street" Protests

Hollywood actor Sean Penn became the latest celebrity to offer his backing to the movement, saying on CNN late Friday: "I applaud the spirit of what is happening now on Wall Street."
"This generation -- and this does begin, I think significantly with the Arab Spring -- is starting to tell the world that we cannot be controlled by fear anymore and we will not be denied," he said.
Angelo: The report claimed there were not yet demands. We have demands. All troops back from all overseas bases and wars, not in drips, all of them today and a complete debt jubilee on essentials like a place to live and necessities would be a good start and it would cost less than we wasted bailing the banksters. Lucky thing is our currency is just imaginary and backed by nothing more than hot air so I think that actually simplifies things. Just reboot.

Private FED Moves To Ban Critical Video!

"I will cover this in more detail on the radio Monday, but I can't take the Bankster Fed pushing people around any more! Now the Fed wants to take down the video where we prove the Federal Reserve is a private bank impersonating a Federal agency. The Fed is the fraud that gives the globalist their power." Alex Jones.

Occupy London - Police Clash With "The Indignant"

Police in London thwarted protesters' efforts to set up camp outside the Stock Exchange. Several hundred activists heckled officers for preventing more people from joining the rally. Thousands of protesters nicknamed "the indignant" marched in major European cities on Saturday as demonstrations against corruption, capitalism and austerity measures went global. Demonstrations that began in New York linked up with long-running rallies against government cost-cutting and failed financial policies in Europe. 

Tensions Rise Between NY Police and Protesters

Tensions are rising in the ongoing standoff between the New York Police Department and "Occupy Wall Street" protesters who have rallied growing numbers of people. Protesters in New York's Lower Manhattan, where the "Occupy Wall Street" movement began on September 17, marched to Times Square to rally at the offices of JP Morgan Chase Bank.At Times Square the police are out in large numbers, including riot police units that have been deployed to deal with New Year's Eve-sized crowds gathered to rally against corporate greed.Police have barricaded the streets, preventing thousands of demonstrators from moving on. Peaceful demonstrators are being picked out of the crowd and dragged away at will, according to eyewitness reports. Some have been arrested face down on the ground.
Angelo: The tower of babel and divide and conquer come to mind. That is the problem for the people. This is the reason I repeat that a way/mantra must be found that unifies the 99. Must we find a way/mantra to accept/be inclusive of our anarchic tendencies. Is anarchy not what goes on behind closed doors every day, perhaps it is in fact what unifies us all. A fellow agitant "Canuckistan" has suggested that - Peaceful protests and street wars are fine for now, but the OWS movement has to evolve to the next level to be successful:
- a countrywide and worldwide general strike across many industries, including work stoppages, work-to-rule, work-slowdowns – pick a date and everybody strike at the same time for a week or more, however long it takes
- targeted boycotts: don’t do business with corrupt banks and corporations
- tax-avoidance: work under-the-table, barter, trade.

Rome In Chaos - Protests Turn Violent

What was initially planned as a peaceful “Occupy Rome” protest turned into a violent demonstration in the Italian capital. Police reportedly used tear gas and water cannons to disperse crowds of angry Italians. Protesters wearing masks and helmets threw rocks, bottles and other objects at police in riot gear. Some wielded clubs, while others were armed with hammers. Residents and peaceful demonstrators have been forced to find shelter into buildings and churches as militant protesters ran amok. Smoke is rising over many parts of the city center. Some of the peaceful demonstrators, however, clashed with the more militant protesters and turned them over to the police. At least 70 people were wounded in clashes with police, who used tear gas and water cannons against the protestors. Three of them in serious condition. The mayor of Rome, Gianni Alemanno, declared that those who have been smashing windows and burning cars are not the protestors, but a group of well-organized provocateurs who joined the rallies on purpose to provoke violence and unrest. reports rt.com
