The protest has to stay nonviolent, or the MSM will jump all over that.

However, if we do stay nonviolent, there is absolutely nothing they can do(:

I SO agree with what you are saying but what is bothering me the most is I have seen some genuine young people sincerely wanting real change. I have heard a rare few on this thread too... These are the ones I am trying to focus on....future patriots

How can we wake them up without alienating them>? That's the question I want answered!

So not true! The longer it remains non violent and legal the more support it could gain. Passive resistance has great power!

Take your cause to the court of public THAT and you win

But first you need to know what exactly you are protesting about. The reasons and demands are all over the map, the public can't get behind a protest that is about RAGE and global warming and social's just too fricking vague and lacks a clear direction.

Stay peaceful and legal, get focused and organized, don't dance to the tune of the ones funding this thing..... pick a few key demands and voice them clearly....and you will win the heart of every old hippie in the country my friend! Don't think they aren't watching with deep interest, they are...if you stand tall for The People, the people will stand tall with you. To me this is the very heart and soul of what makes our country unique, and brought it to greatness once.

You have a very significant chance to make a huge difference if you play it smart....or spark the demise of the country if you aren't

passive resistance ahahahhahahahahaha they protested aginst nuclear testing - did nothing protested against the vietnam war did nothing had half a million people show up just to see john stewart and co talk and nothing happens - and you think that standing there chanting is goes to shake the foundation of daily life in america - the last time they had a revolution in this country that actually worked involved a little more than pleading for change.

It's nice to see the Islamic Spring finally reach America.

Seriously though, I don't really support the cause of the protesters in NYC, it seems a little immature if you ask me. Oh noes, rich people have money and I don't so I'm going to protest. Grow up. This is nothing like the great protests and marches of the past because it is lacking in substance and the backing of clear moral purpose.

What I do find interesting is that it feels like the worlds population is collectively growing restless albeit for differing reasons. Keep an eye out and see if this starts spreading into other areas of popular displeasure and spawns new protests completely unrelated to the Occupy Wall Street bs. Also watch for world governments to over react & begin placing limits on internet freedom since that's playing a large role in these many individual movements. Nothing seems to scare our governments more than the free and open sharing of ideas & information.

I think you have a very bad understanding of how the World works if you think that's a god idea. That kind of thing is going to get people shot. I think mutual respect is a better bet.

the police and the military are the governments weapon against revolution...showing them respect or being peaceful will get you nowhere...if everyone did that the government would just be able to control protests and nothing would get solved. the government put restrictions on protests so they can control them and ignore them.

its a shame because if the police and military realised they are being used as porns by corrupt leaders they would probably join the protesters.

the only way to get governments to listen is with force, they need to know they are not more powerful than the people

We are so sheltered, we Americans. Most other countries know revolution is contagious. I was talking to a friend online from the Middle East....over there it's common knowledge. Russian immigrants have interesting things to say about the signs they see of things to come...

It is after all...the end of an age.... Internet control is certainly coming... globalists are making more and more open decisions...

It's going to be a ride however it turns out, I think most Americans know what happening and thus the restlessness...

I was pretty young when some of the stand out events happened in the 60s but some of them really impacted me.

Bobby Kennedy's assassination was one of them... I remember trying to understand why on earth ANYONE would fo such a thing. Adults all said the same thing: Politics

I still don't understand it on a different level now

NYPD bought and paid for by JP Chase Morgan, nothing but thugs and hired mercs. You cant ignore the fact JP Chase "donated" almost 6 mil out of the kindness of their hearts right? The KKK protest the police protect and assist , Westboro Baptist Church protest the police protect and assist them. Peaceful protesters protest Wall Street Bankers well... break out the zip ties, mace kettle women followed up with brutality and ask for predator drones.... obviously this subversion is unwarranted. Obviously the NYPD serve and protect the banking scourge before the people. Because a charitable cause enough compensation to do the bidding of Bankers.

Banker: whats your price Those damn protesters are drawing us too much attention. SHUT THEM UP!

Police: my squad car needs a laptop hell throw that in with that windows 7 also a new squad car and laptop for me and my buddies Sal and Carmine and we have a deal

Banker: done and done your whole force has new lap tops and cars, .

Dons, Capos the mob never died this is mob rule. They just wear badges and drink champagne on a balcony while the undesirables make them uncomfortable. We are the elephant in the room now. We will not be silenced, we will not go quietly in to the night. We will not be intimidated. A sleeping giant has awoke! Expect MORE of us.

there might be some changes ahead. also, if julian does not
give his support to these occupation protests, well then...
we're all doomed.

also, does anyone think that "arab spring" was as fake as it gets?
beer with me. if these occupy guise are "inspired" by fake arab
revolutions, what does that tell you?

oh, wait. critical thinking is forbidden here. i forgot. shun.

I am intrigued.

Can you explain why it is important to NOT turn violent? At some point, there must be violence to trigger the event

This protest (or what ever you call it) is a joke. There is a loosely organized mob of people who don't have a single unifying message. It's important that this doesn't turn violent for many reasons.

1) There's no need! How do you fight when you don't even know what you stand for?? LOL
2) They will be locked up for civil disobedience or assault, innocent people will be hurt and property will be damaged.
3) They will accomplish nothing except furthering the administrations justification for Marshal Law.

As best I can tall, this is a group of angry liberal, atheist, anarchist, hippie, communist, socialist, union, welfare-loving, angry-at-the-world-for-being-born, idiots. Please share with me ONE SINGLE VIDEO of a sane person participating in this BS. I haven't seen one yet!!!

I'm down for violence in the defense of something sacred. Been there...done that...have the medals! But people...seriously...this detracts from the REAL event that might very well take place in our future. For the most part, these people are complete idiots!! When the real event happens and the true patriots rises up...that movement will be compared to THIS BS and we'll be marginalized. They'll dismiss the real (necessary) uprising as just "the second Occupy Wall Street Event". I'm not liking this...and I hope they stop soon. I don't know about the rest of you, but these folks aren't playing on my team!!

So go join them and put them straight soldier boy!
Or do you still think all is right and well in the world.
Everyone I've seen interviewed at the protest(s) seems to be pretty clear what they stand for: 1% of the world controls the other 99% for their own self interest. They believe the 99% can have and deserve a better quality of life if the 1% had their power revoked. I agree with them.

the 1% control the organized firepower/media/print/banks/money/corps/stores/prices/cities/nations/puppets/and everything else that the 99% need to use to take over. short of a blood bath of martyrs 'change' isnt happening on a massive level, but it will happen on a personal level for each individual hauled off to lock up.
it's a shame yeah but its the reality.

So let me get this right , in order to protest in a democracy you need a permit ?
you need permission to protest peacfully in a democracy ?

If you protest peacfully but dont follow the orders of the police they can arrest you for civil disobediance
obediance implys that you are being obedient , like a dog to its master !

Yeh arent there ammendments in the constitution that give you guys the right to protest without a permit ?

posted on Oct, 3 2011 @ 07:35 AM
If you are protesting in the street and blocking should be removed or arrested....its a simple as that...i don't understand why people would think this is ok. Im ok with the protests and I believe almost everyone is including the police...but you can't mess with everyone else that has to get to work by blocking the street!

posted on Oct, 3 2011 @ 07:36 AM
I have to agree with many people here.

The fact most of these people don't know what they are protesting for. It seems the protest is aimed for a change to communism or just complete anarchy, i can't see what else they are trying to accomplish.

I personally believe in communism, the issue is some people won't accept it. People are too greedy to accept that if they work "harder" they won't get better benefits. I believe humans should work together to further our race. We should all pool together to help each other and not ourselves. We seem to have forgotten this importance.

If i were protesting right now, it wouldn't be about wall street, or even against the elite in general, i'd be protesting to start the space program again, because seriously, how are we as a species supposed to survive on earth with all the random # that could happen at any moment?

Step one - stop greed - step two - ensure survival step three - better the human species.

I am disheartened by the entire reaction of America to this.

You people act like the protesters are disorganized while everyone has a theory on why this is a bad idea, or how to do it better, and on and on while doing nothing. At least these people are Doing Something. Go and organize them and tell them the "truth" then. Even the main alternative news sources have turned on this. Because actually doing anything is bad. I believe in the "controlled opposition" now. Both sides want you to do nothing. Not really.

To change a completely illegal and immoral system it's going to take breaking a few of the "systems" laws. It seems like all hope is lost if the "alternative" crowd is being divided so easily on helping protest the injustice of this world. It sickens me.
