The right wing is so predicable. They will carry on about how low the attendance "actually" was while also denying the cause/effect of austerity. The old Thatcher/Reagan propaganda worked very well to con millions into thinking massive corporations and financial institutions represent the best interests of working people. Silly silly right wingers, oh how you have sold out your fellow man at the alter of a failing ideology. The thing is, your bad ideas are chained to the rest of us. This fawning sycophantic support for "free market" dogma...for slashing public services and support for a perpetual war waged on the working class.

You have been conned into believing you're rich. Conned into thinking the top .01%'s interests align with your own. You are the problem. Just as much as any economists or politicians. Your support makes all this possible. Pat yourselves on the back for a job well done. You've made dependable lackeys. Next you will shift the blame to "immigrants". Very very predicable.

One minute people whine about governments spending too much and then they whine when they try to cut back on spending. It must be nice to be delusional.

God I'm embarrassed to call myself an American.

Go Britian.


You can always renounce your citizenship and move.

Just saying...there are solutions to your "problem."

Yes to all that, plus they have sown the seeds of destruction . The beast that's created is expansionist, it has to be to work . That's way this model works.

They didn't learn anything from Greece and Venezuela, did they? The OP said "Legitimate Benefit Claimants" like they have a right to it.

Funny, what is it people have been doing on Wall St? Who caused all this? Who was bailed out? When we get right down to it, who is creating the productive value within our economies? Workers on Main St or magicians on Wall St moving money around and betting against each other? Where is all this money coming from? How has all this accumulated capital been generated? On whose backs?

I really think a lot of people on here are logging on from public housing with their free internet, and as they puff on their doobie, think of ways to annoy those of us who have done something with their lives.

These people aren't protesting against austerity, their motives are entirely selfish. These gatherings would be better called the 'Stop Limiting the Expenditure Growth in the Services that Affect Me' protests.

The truth is the UK is running one of the highest deficits in Europe as a percent of GDP This Is Money.

This government, as imperfect as they are, are doing a reasonable job in slowly lowering the deficit Guardian.

Since this government came to power, social spending has increased UK Public Spending. How this translates into 'benefiting the rich at the expense of the poor' is beyond me...

In America the working poor are on welfare because corporations don't pay enough. Why do you want corporate welfare to go unnoticed? Do they also drive Cadillacs and have 15 kids? The old "welfare queen" right winger lie never seems to die. Not only is corporate welfare paid via low wages but it's paid outright and the numbers are staggering.

From the article below:

"The size and range of the subsidies the tool has uncovered helps explain the burdens taxpayers must bear because so many major corporations rely on welfare for much or all of their profits rather than earning them.

Such burdens are especially hard on the poor. The bottom fifth of households in all but one state pay a larger share of their income in state and local taxes than the top 1 percent of earners. This means that corporate welfare effectively redistributes from the poor to those rich enough to own corporate stock."

If you want the government to listen your going to have to get a lot angrier than that.


Don't worry eventually people will figure that out

All it takes is enough time and enough suffering.

There was a time when I would have supported these protesters.

These days, they strike me as nothing more than recalcitrant, political zealots.

They're the same ones who think it's ok to destroy UKIP banners and hurl abuse at people who don't fully support their own narrow worldview.

I have no time for them, it's all a sham.
Austerity is a sham, this demonstration of "popular revolt" is a sham, democracy is a sham.

What was written almost 100 years ago resonates well to what is coming now lol

V.I. Lenin : Letter to American Workers
www.marxists.org...



The history of modern, civilised America opened with one of those great, really liberating, really revolutionary wars of which there have been so few compared to the vast number of wars of conquest which, like the present imperialist war, were caused by squabbles among kings, landowners or capitalists over the division of usurped lands or ill-gotten gains. That was the war the American people waged against the British robbers who oppressed America and held her in colonial slavery, in the same way as these “civilised” bloodsuckers are still oppressing and holding in colonial slavery hundreds of millions of people in India, Egypt, and all parts of the world.

About 150 years have passed since then. Bourgeois civilisation has borne all its luxurious fruits. America has taken first place among the free and educated nations in level of development of the productive forces of collective human endeavour, in the utilisation of machinery and of all the wonders of modern engineering. At the same time, America has become one of the foremost countries in regard to the depth of the abyss which lies between the handful of arrogant multimillionaires who wallow in filth and luxury, and the millions of working people who constantly live on the verge of pauperism. The American people, who set the world an example in waging a revolutionary war against feudal slavery, now find themselves in the latest, capitalist stage of wage-slavery to a handful of multimillionaires, and find themselves playing the role of hired thugs who, for the benefit of wealthy scoundrels, throttled the Philippines in 1898 on the pretext of “liberating” them, and are throttling the Russian Socialist Republic in 1918 on the pretext of “protecting” it from the Germans.

I hope the elites read this, because if things keep going this way and the inequality grows. Then they may find there doors getting kicked in and hundreds of angry poor people clawing and kicking till there nothing but torn flesh and pulp. They really have gone too far.

1000000000000000000000000000000000 x Infinity in support of these people!

FREEDOM AND EQUALITY JOINED FOREVER TO GO HOME!

Anyone forced into banks, real estate and ownership, slavery has massive IOU's owed to them, because they have natural rights to land and resources as does all of nature.

Mom and Dad, Equality and Freedom, and its time for people to take this earth back and for their children. No banks, no money, no real estate agents, clean technology.

Anything else is crimes against humanity.

No more musical chairs of who is a winner, and who is a loser.
