As I said in another tread I will be in the next few days looking into ways to inject my self into a local group. If I can't find one I'll be on the corner with my signs along with my friends. Thanks for the constructive criticism. =D

Brave? Protesting is your RIGHT in a democracy. It shoudn't be dangerous at all. If it becomes dangerous, then you should protest about protesting being dangerous!

If you really need to be brave to use your rights then these Bilderberg mutants are really successful in their project of making us their communist slaves.

Use your right to protest or lose it!

i was just stating the truth, i agree with you, but i was just stating the truth

check out the way a lot of protests end

not real peacefully, and a lot of the times the cops do resort to violence on some level, and the majority of americans have seen and realize that

it may be a right, but its one of those rights we seem to have lost

but if you or anyone else know of anywhere theres going to be a peaceful legal protest that the powers that be are going to allow, let me know ill be there

but ill know where the exits are for when the tear gas, bean bags, and high pressure hoses break out from behind the riot shields

they are all too dumbed down by miley cyrus, sports, and food and cop dramas on tv

but if it gets bad enough and the supermarket shelves actually run out of chicken wings on superbowl sunday, and someone kidnaps miley and a major sports team

its called mind control , the dumbed down society is the result of the mind control.
the chicken came before the egg

i agree with you also, it is a result of a form of mind control that has turned america into a nation of consumers with no other worries other then consuming and continuing the downward trend to make companies bigger and more profitable by the second

however, it is pathetic that so many people have fallen for it soo easily

maybe we understand this because we are lucky enough to be educated and smart enough to realize whats going on, but it truly is sad how many of our peers have absolutely no clue and are completely blindly ignorant to the way things are

and in calling peers ignorant isnt meant as a insult, it is just the way things are and unfortunately a large majority fall into that group of peers

The fact of the matter is that rarely happens. A protest is exercising your right to decent against your government, it's what your country was founded on. If our founding fathers were willing to face bullets and were not willing to face tear gas for our freedoms, we deserve to loose our freedoms.

The fact that largely peaceful protests are met with violence from the authorities shows how far we've sunk from a free society. It also shows that they don't care for our Constitution and deserves decent.

But please sip your Starbucks coffee, watch your Superbowl as your country where you were raised and care so much about goes down the drain.

It is sad. America has been bending over and taking up the as* for to da*m long! No one in America is going to do anything. We didn't do anything when Bush stole the election, when the USS Cole was bombed, when Barak HUSSIEN Obama was elected. Hell we barely got our fat as* #es up and did anything after 9-11, I am not referring to the men and women who were sent to the Middle East, I am referring to the average Joe in America. God forbid we actually get up and kick a#s! We are to lazy to do anything but push buttons on a remote. Admit it, America and what it used to stand for is gone, no one cares anymore about protecting our rights. America should be as bold as France. But anyone did do something like France, the other half that didn't do anything would have those that did locked up like a bunch of loonies. Right, if anyone got out and protested they would be hauled off, shot, beat by the police and verbally slanged by the media would they not?

its a shame, these big protests with big government bailing out the banks at the expense of ordinary citizens should of been big in the U.S.

But it seems Americans want government bailout of banks.

The world is doing what the U.S. people should be doing.

Sad times we live in.

25,000 workers to protest in houston

It is small by comparison, but it may get some momentum.

Hi all, sorry for my english,

I just discovered this website and it looks interesting.

As long as our Majesty Napoléon Sarkosy wants to minimize our standart of living, people will protest in the street.
The french model is not the best, I would prefer the Swedish's or Finland's one.

A lot of changes are going to happen pretty soon. US, China, Europe, the world won't never be the same...

Sarkozy is a ..., you know, that certain group of people that govern the economics of the world...

I am not saying the word, I do not want to be labeled as a racist.

i fully agree with you, i dont even like starbucks and the only reason i care about the superbowl is it gives me a reason to throw a party with my friends

but unfortunately what you bring up is the consensus of the majority here in the states

i fully agree if our forefathers did that for us, we owe them a lot more then what we do now. if this was the days of the revolution, id be packing my musket right now

but im also a realist, so if no one else is going to go out to fight, i might as well try to find some other way to get a message to the masses rather then go out and protest alone and waste a way in jail when i could be finding a way to beat the system constructively

i guess my point is something we probably all agree on, we've slipped too far for protests to work, as our "captors" no longer allow protests to continue peacefully and are always met with aggression when peace-fullness is attempted

ive lately learned a tactic that almost always work is the old adage, "if you cant beat em join em"

so my plan to do what i can, is to do just that, try to find a way to break into the media and political compartments that run things and try to find a way to change things from within

as like i said, the days of the peaceful hippies are no longer possible, protests, catchy slogans and chants no longer work

I could not agree more. I'd like to understand what you all would like to see come out of the protests. Is it more government hand-outs, public lynching of bankers, what is it?

Americans won't protest in mass because that is not who we are. Its not some "MSM, NWO, who ever else might be in the mix deal", it is because Americans will just figure out what to do to survive this cyclical cycle. The socialism in Europe is an absolute disaster. 35 hour work weeks, huge vacations, free services. It all sounds great, but what do the french make? what do they export? where is their innovation and how do they advance the world with technology, drugs, anything?

I suggest that some folks who are full of "power to the people" do a bit of research on what true socialism looks like. First, you won't even come close to finding one that is in a multi-cultural society and frankly you won't find one that works, period. It all sounds terrific, with images of folks sitting around on hill sides, listening to Marley and playing frisbee, but at the end of the day, that really is not going to make for a sustainable society.

I agree that capitalism and the American model has its excesses and problems, but they are nothing compared with the problems that other systems.

Again, what practical things would you like to see come out of the protest? Tell us all what you would change in real terms, not simply "the average guy is not going to keep get screwed by the government" crap. What would you change and how would our lives be different?

Just seems like a ton of ranting to me with no solution.

The solution, IMO is to get back to work, and don't rely on the government. In the US, at least, when close to 50% of people don't pay taxes (although they get "tax cuts", which are handouts) what else do you want? As one of the tax payers, I'm not interested in making any more contributions to some ill-conceived utopia.

I'm not surprised how this has got NO media attention in America.

Yeh they don´t want Americans protesting this early. They havn´t built all the camps yet and infra structure yet.

Thats one thing I like about he French, they don´t take any crap and show it when they don´t like whats going on.

Most other countries get on with being enslaved and watch their TV shows.

Hell yea, more power to them
That's exactly what we need to do, exactly. Americans like to call the french soft but those guys have more balls than we do.

Well at least the french are saying enough is enough rather than make small talk about. Alot of people would rather live as a slave rather than die free, its all about how bad you want it. At the same time its a matter of pissin off the wrong person at the wrong time

Ill see you there janon!

To me it looks as if George Soros (the famous businessman that funds numerous NGO's across United States, Europe and the World) and Zbigniew Brzezinski (another powerful player in the Global political scene that is backing Barak Obama) might be walking hand in hand and are testing a destabilization plan for Europe in order to evaluate and gain assets that can later turn against the now powerful Russian economic interests that utilize in Europe. has any European government that made lucrative deals with those been targeted, or is this all something completely different?
I am just trying to find answers.

Matthew 24:6 And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

Lets paraphrase Matthew 24:6

And you shall hear of protests and rumors of protests: see that you be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the real thing is not yet.???

For every action there is a reaction.

For when there is order there is Anarchy and Anarchy resolves back into order.

Reform is coming the currency system is outdated, credit is false security.

America was built on the intent that the government is the slave and the people rule, this is dissolved, it's only a matter of time before the illusive and orderly world we live in is completley toppled over into a new enlightened age.....Seems rather close to 2012 yes?

Scary though, for it would seem there is too many people on this over crowded planet....whats going to happen?

Are the FEMA camps going to turn into concentration camps where we're baked in ovens?

Is the National Gaurd going to turn into Nazi-Like secret police and take people from their homes?

My causin is a marine in Iraq atm and he stated to me "I fight for the people of my country, Not the fat rich politicians".

Could that one sentence go to show that just maybe the military isn't keen on killing fellow americans because they are labeled as "terrorist"?

Civil War?

No offence meant,but there are a few Americans here who seem to be getting all jittery about this.

Will there be riots about this in America?

One thing I admire about the French is that they will always protest or riot about things which has angered and upset them.Barely a year goes by without such an incident.Hell,one time even the police and firemen rioted against each other!

Surprised it hasn't been reported in the news;why?
The US media is well known for not covering events around the world.

This is the French doing what they do best.
And,as I said,every year folks.This ain't something outta the blue.

Ok i all see and i'm sure the NWO sees the same thing and that is people holding sign saying different things. Now does everyone expect NWO to fold because of signs? AS far as roits in america all i hear is talk and no action, either start the protest or hush.

posted on Feb, 1 2009 @ 09:03 PM
the French are always the first to respond to anything Economic for some reason. But that's just a precursor to a more world-wide riot I don't want to see coming in the future that I can see.

We need to find solutions and I'm not sure what those solutions are. Just feeling overwhelmed by it all. I'm in America and things don't look good at all. I know, let's move to another planet!

Seriously though, I wish everyone everywhere the strength and courage that is needed in these dark times. It's like our governments have no common sense or compassion for their fellow man. Money and power matter more than human beings.

So what are our choices anyway? We can call our representatives and write letters and protest...but what will it give us in the end? They will do whatever they damned well please. I am so frustrated and angry!

One can't really be surprised about how little coverage there's been about the French protest internationally. Obviously anyone, no everyone, who's made it to the top of the political food-chain has a top priority --self preservation, above all. The ruling class in any nation dreads protests like these and will go far as to not give the public knowledge of such protests going on elsewhere.

Unfortunately, the way things are currently being run, I don't really see any other way we can go. Things will have to get messy, before we can begin to create a better future.

Kind regards to all and Vive la France.
