This is Crazy

"This is a major, major, major deal. And I can't emphasize that enough, man. This is crazy... Now get off your asses and do something..." -New Orleans Mayor, Ray Nagin, to the federal government (following Hurricane Katrina in 2005).

MAY DAY! MAY DAY! #OWS

Flipping through the TV channels last night it became apparent the news media were not sufficiently going to cover the global Occupy Wall Street Protests (once again).

There were plenty of talking heads blabbing about Obama's speech, however. The main news networks seemed to see coverage of both events as mutually exclusive.

Tens of thousands of people in the streets protesting greed, corruption, and failed policy is a big deal. Our future hope lies in this sort of political awareness and action.

Occupy Wall Street seeks the restoration of democracy in America and ending the corporate-run state. It represents a vital and emerging consciousness that many fear.

Just because corporate media do not like the Occupy Wall Street message doesn't make it disappear.


THIS IS NOT HAPPENING!

WINTER RAGE:

OWS is gearing up for Summer 2012, but many kept the presence alive in places during the winter months.

THANK YOU!

Here are a few images of smaller OWS gatherings in New England this past winter:
Occupy The New Hampshire Primary

Occupy Keene, New Hampshire

Occupy New Haven by Yale University

Good Question: "Why is it called democracy overseas and called anarchy here?"

AND LET'S NOT FORGET ABOUT THIS...

It's pretty obvious Barack Obama does not truly care about Occupy Wall Street or the 99%, but we should still expect some basic support of citizens' rights.

"I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR IN CALLING UPON THE EGYPTIAN AUTHORITIES TO REFRAIN FROM ANY VIOLENCE AGAINST PEACEFUL PROTESTORS. THE PEOPLE OF EGYPT HAVE RIGHTS THAT ARE UNIVERSAL. THAT INCLUDES THE RIGHT TO PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY AND ASSOCIATION, THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH, AND THE ABILITY TO DETERMINE THEIR OWN DESTINY. THESE ARE HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE UNITED STATES WILL STAND UP FOR THEM EVERYWHERE."

-BARACK OBAMA. JANUARY 28, 2011

  1. The United States is a haven of hypocrisy and greed. The U.S. Criminal Government actively subverts other nations. It tells others how to conduct themselves. Yet, we have a history of trampling all over those who are not powerful. It makes me sick!
