It's "Comrade David" lol. Fuck off, Tovarish Firestein. Srsly.
They invaded a YMCA. Wat?
They vandalized shit. Wat?
It's this kind of behavior that loses public support. Happily, OSD is already bypassing the general assembly and holding events without their knowledge. That's funny right there. No confidence in the self-appointed "leaders."
It is to lol!
london evicted today article on google had virus but here notice. The BBC article was ok. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-16785001 clean no virus.
1. A march was stopped at Telegraph Ave and William St.
2. All park exists were blocked off
3. The crowed was ordered to leave without being allowed any exit
4. Gas / Chemicals, projectiles, batons, and explosives were used on the marchers
I was not sure during the filming, but gas was definitely used on this residential area. I definitely felt sick later as the gas reached my apartment.
Protesters did not destroy any personal property. Building windows and cars remained untouched (in this area at least).
I have no doubt that the number of marchers will increase next time. This group started with camping - The city's responses seem to be slowly turning them into a militia.
At 4:12 the tear gas starts...
"Quan said that at one point, many protesters forced their way into City Hall, where they burned flags, broke an electrical box and damaged several art structures, including a recycled art exhibit created by children."
Jean Quan is a known liar. Don't trust her.
"We support the goals of the Occupy Wall Street movement: we have high levels of unemployment and we have high levels of foreclosure that makes Oakland part of the 99% too. We are a progressive city and tolerant of many opinions. We may not always agree, but we all have a right to be heard." -jean quan
remember that? Yeah we support them by putting peaceful protesters in the hospital.
She should resign...NOW.
Here's an update to let you know that Occupy the Movie is ready. This press release details an upcoming screening in Vancouver. Quote:
Thursday, February 23, 2012, 7:30 pm until 9:30 pm
We are hosting a film screening night at the W2 Media Cafe, which will showcase selected films from our Occupy series. Each film will be followed by a short Q&A period with Corey Ogilvie, director of 'I Am Not Moving' and 'BC's Huge Gamble.'
The collection of short films that we have produced so far are merely the precursor to the to the full-length feature documentary that we are making. Corey Ogilvie and producer Andrew Halliwell will speak briefly about the success that we've had so far and the worldwide network that we have established as a result.
Most importantly, we want to communicate our goals for the future. Currently, we have a month-long trip to the eastern seaboard of the US planned for the spring. There, we will be conducting interviews with politicians, representatives from the media, and other key individuals.
We hope that you can make it as this will be a great opportunity for us to engage in conversation with our audience about the issues that surround the Occupy movement.
It doesn't matter if you're an avid supporter, a neutral observer or a skeptic, we want you there!
If you're not sure what any of this is about, please check out the following links below.
(I'm probably posting in the wrong place -- bear with me, but I don't come to this forum often.)
I work near (not at) San Quentin prison (Marin County, California, USA). Apparently there is going to be an "Occupy" protest there tomorrow (Monday, 2/20/2012).
The reason I know this is that I got an email from my work warning us that the police were going to prohibit parking near/around San Quentin -- places where it's usually free to park. They actually advised us not to come into work that day -- anticipating it's going to be chaotic.
I imagine that the police are prohibiting people from parking to try to prohibit people from protesting. (It's called the First Amendment...)
There's the Larkspur Ferry Terminal that lands quite near San Quentin -- it could be a long-ish walk to the actual protest, but it's there.
I hope this info might be helpful... that parking will be an issue at that protest... rather, the police are making an issue of it.
Wondering what huggy reason people have to Occupy a prison?
I'm sure it's to protest the prison-industrial complex.
Occupy Congress Liberty Plaza being arrested live
also Occupy DC:
update: 10 arrests so far. http://www.livestream.com/occupydc is down.
Also, looks like they're doing a march this morning or at least trying to.
Occupiers: they take a lickin' and keep on tickin'.
Gotta' admire 'em.
Here's video of #NYPD quickly tearing down a tent in #LibertySq tonight, then leaving
#OWS #M17 #OccupyWallStreet Girl Seizing Following Arrest, Cops Mishandle Her Situation
What kind of idiots are these people? Who the hell needs training to know that when a person is seizing and banging their head on the ground, you put your hand under their head to prevent them from cracking their skull on the concrete. If these fools have the authority to arrest droves of people, and detain them, they should be able to quickly and professionally react to medical emergencies. This helps to show people how incompetent the NYPD is.
Moar #OCCUPY SOCIALIST FAIL
Just wooly claims, has made people think! Srsly?
I don't know you're making some pretty good points for the other side.
Try posting what occupy has ACTUALLY achieved!
It changed the conversation.
and its still evolving.
Worth all the effort then.
imo absolument. Mocking greedy and ethically-challenged people and institutions works and helps people.
Quite an achievement.....for a years work, the costs involved to all parties, inc the tax payer.
It's got people talking......dang!
Seems to have worked on us, anyway...
Occupy is a modern day spruce goose.
Let it go
and you have no spine. Also when shit like this happens regularly...http://www.nypost.com/p/news/business/bulletproof_2hHuvQYhgIGmTzDqpG9fXM#ixzz1pzIC3zDD
Its time to get out and Occupy to at least voice your opinion. This is not acceptable.
Or maybe you like being told what side of the street you can walk on? Or which street you can walk on period?
Occupy Wall Street @OccupyWallStNYC
Wait, is #WallStreet not a public street?
I agree about the protesting if you feel a real need to, but to go out and block streets, parks and public places with no real unifying message is pretty futile, to then turn those areas into campsites without any planning, just turn up and pitch all sorts of shit there is asking to get a reaction, the occupy movement didn't have momentum, it stumbled quickly because it got high jacked, due to its confused demands, and because the imaginary 99% it supposedly represented saw it for what it was and didn't run with it. I think a lot of you got carried away and tried to turn it into some kind of "American spring" which was never going to happen.
The London version was a complete disaster, especially when infra red cameras revealed that the majority of protesters went home at night, not sleeping in their tents, real devotion to the cause eh! And to occupy a tourist attraction that has nothing to do with what the protest was about was inspired stupidity on a huge scale!
It's been doomed from the start, and unfortunately it's a long drawn out death because some won't admit it's dead and go home.
So the protesters who admitted to going home lied?
Dox that a "majority of protestors" admitted to going home at night?
he has no Dox this guy talks out of his ass.
At least I talk with a clear mind, not one fogged up by the fat one that's just been lit.
Lurk moar, it's out there
Oh, and when they dismantled the shanty town there were only a handfull of protesters left, really put up a fight though lol, funny how the cops moved in at night and most of the tents were empty, strange that.
So no dox huh?
Plenty of dox out there if you can be bothered to look, I can't be arsed
so NO then. Thanks buddy.
