Occupation News

The "Occupy" movement is too large to ignore now, and too important not to keep up-to-date about. Media blackouts are lessening, but in lieu of that, we are now getting a deliberate misinformation campaign. But you still do not see the coverage that the protests warrant on the news. I have been keeping up-to-date as best I can, and feel that it is a duty of mine to spread what I have learned. Below are links and videos on this issue.

Many people are doing what they can from where they are. People are moving their money out of the big banks and into credit unions. Did you know as few as 147 companies pretty much own everything and control the economy? They are speaking out and making demands. Even if many of us are weary. You, too can make a difference. Here is what others are doing:

Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, and others join in at Occupy Columbus Circle, NYC:

Protests at Occupy Maine are disrupted by someone throwing a chemical bomb to disrupt it.

A Marketing Professional orchestrates a Bank of America Walkout:

Children's author Lemony Snicket writes about the occupation and asks other authors to join in.

Videos are being produced that tell what we want as a movement:

Meanwhile, Bank of America pushes forward with record breaking profits and a plan to charge $5 per month to use your debit card.

One Marine versus 30 cops (after he watches them brutalize protestors and bystanders in NYC):

Occupy London blog reports that many Christian denominations are with them.

I encourage you to post your links to this important movement. Together, we can stay informed.

  1. Late in reading this as well as viewing the vids. Have posted on Facebook and shared publicly. Why should I, a Filipino who doesn't even live in the US, care about OWS? Because Wall Street greed hurt us, too. THANKS for this!
