Georgia - They started it!
Is it a first amendment violation?
I'm sorry, what?
What requirement and what about it?
I still say that this is where the protests should be happening:
On the frontline of Obama's tax war: Survey reveals the wealthiest towns where America's millionaires live
No cake, pie.
I heard they need more pizza pies at the occupation. Send more pies, feed the people.
there were literally like 8-10 halal food trucks surrounding the plaza the other night
That's very interesting. The kosher foods are being delivered to the buildings on Wall Street.
What does it all mean?
its actually called gobbing.
People getting rich off anti-capitalist protests. Nice
yes. I cant seem to find one in los angeles.
anti-capitalist protests??? How's that?>
Hilarious(?) comments on that article
Lol occupy wall street. Dirty gross smelly hippies in EFG masks. I hope they all get arrested.
You got close enough to smell?
Unfortunately yes :C
Guess Im a hippy then.
wasn't that obvious already?
We are fed this view of the "hippie" that makes the word itself into an insult.
We are fed this idea that the hippie just burned out on acid trips and free love
and that they were too fucking lazy to ever really accomplish anything.
But what really happened?
They got SHOT IN THE FACE
MLK jr, jfk, robert kennedy, malcolm x, john lennon, kent state, etc
And how much stuff was done that we don't know about, not to mention that a huge chunk of that particular generation was being flown off to the furnace halfway around the world
The soldiers drafted into vietnam were part of that generation, they had that same dynamism, and they were capable of the most radical action because they were the most disenfranchised
We are given the impression that the hippie is an ineffective loser, while, on the contrary, the hippie had the whole deck stacked against him from the start, yet he still effected change despite that.
That's why i hate the use of the word "hippie" in a deragotory sense.
MLK jr, JFK, Robert Kennedy, Malcolm X were not hippies by any measure. MLK was a pacifist and republican. John Lennon was a hippy, but finally became enlightened before he got shot.
....not to spoil your fantasies, just sayin'.
get a hair cut hippy.
DAY OF RAGE!!!
MLK hung out with communists (said he wasn't one himself but did find some Biblical justifications for it) and was not fond of Republican ideologies and the guy who said that John Lennon changed before he died has been convicted of stealing from the Lennons and other, closer friends have said he's full of shit.
And this is somehow comforting to you?
People grow up, it happens.
Watching this op and the continued BART protests with interest, my sense is Anon is nimble on the web and a bit awkward irl, at least the vids I've seen. But most protests are, with weak chants, visuals and messages - great protests are almost a work of art, certainly a collaborative, creative effort is needed to pull them off well & ftw. And I think there's a lot of good will towards anyone willing to flick their teeth at Wall Street right now, so this could have legs and have a chance to get past the initial message fail. But who knows, the DC tarsands protests/arrests were barely news and that was with celebrities and NGO elites.
Code Pink is notorious for being big on confrontation and winging it on message, as well as wasting time on pc protocols in coalition situations. But Medea Benjamin also runs Global Exchange (with Kevin), which has been confronting the IMF, free trade deals, globalization and corporate welfare for as long as anyone in the US. A mixed bag there, imo. She was not the easiest person to deal with at the Seattle WTO, I think of her as the Nancy Pelosi of the far Left.
If we are not found of Republicans, we are hippies?

really that's all you have to say?
Did not know. That is gross.
I liked you better when you were on Whatis-Theplan.
Your unnecessarily baww post doesn't address the fact that the protesters literally ARE dirty smelly old hippies.
w/e otis can eat my shit. He's not a local.
THIS. If ever there was an argument for a constitutional amendment, it is this.
Well, since Otis has been dead for over forty years, I think its a moot point.
