There is a lot of information in here we may have never seen before,all connected to OWS.

Occupy Wall Street is an ongoing demonstration in New York City.The source of the revolution was called on by a Canadian Activist group known as "Adbusters:"it drew inspiration from the Arab Spring movement in Cairo which initiated the 2011 Egyptian Revolution.

I was gonna keep going but I think this information needs to be seen by everyone.Here is a quote from within,mind you,this is Wikipedia.
OWS


Occupy Wall Street is an ongoing demonstration in New York City.[4] The protest was originally called for by the Canadian activist[5] group Adbusters; it took inspiration from the Arab Spring movement, particularly the Tahrir Square protests in Cairo, which initiated the 2011 Egyptian Revolution.[6]

The participants of the event are mainly protesting against social economic inequality and corporate greed, among other concerns.[7] Adbusters states that, "Beginning from one simple demand – a presidential commission to separate money from politics – we start setting the agenda for a new America."[8] The protest's organizers hope that the protestors themselves will formulate their own specific demands, expecting them to be focused on "... taking to task the people who perpetrated the economic meltdown."[9]

Hmmm....they don't seem to be financed by TPTB if this is who is behind OWS. And their message is consistently anti-corporate.

What I can't believe is there's this much information on here since September 17th.

I noticed that as well, just seems damned odd to me.

True but the part I don't like is this:

The protest's organizers hope that the protestors themselves will formulate their own specific demands, expecting them to be focused on "... taking to task the people who perpetrated the economic meltdown."[

I think this has connections to the United Nations. Look at my post... www.abovetopsecret.com... The one organizing the worldwide occupy protest on September 15, 2011 is the spouse of an Egyptian UN representative.

Am I missing something? I ask this for myself, and most likely a slew of other people who have no idea what we are supposed to be seeing. Is this group supposed to be something malicious? They seem fine to me.

Yeah, i am all for finding out the truth about these alleged organizers, but I need to see proof of them being apart of the problem.

I'll flag for now

What part of that causes you concern? Allowing the protestors to formulate their own demands?

I kind of think that this "organized chaos" that is OWS actually helps to keep the shills out. No leaders that are prone to being corrupted by power and influence, if you catch my drift, but one goal from people covering all walks of American life.

The goal is clear to me: End the marriage between our government, wall street, and the other major corps that have #ed us right in the street

If that is the goal of OWS, then I support that. But I definitely want to know whose hands are involved in this.

I'm always cautious. Like any CSI/Profiler would do, "always follow the money trail". AJ did this, as well, (for whatever you think of AJ), but the whole OWS/"bankster" theory is certainly part of his usual M.O.

I do not support any one particular view, nor do I discount any, at this point. I will, however, look a gift horse in the mouth, if said horse appear Greek, in nature.

Who donates to AdBusters? (information outdated, but interesting, to me, at least).

I am not promoting *anyone's* agenda, here, only offering Devil's Advocate perspective.

As always, YOU should make the final determination.

What's the best way to kill something? Make it fashionable.

Ad Busters is a popular alternative magazine. It's very radical, and some would say 100% correct in it's analysis of the system.



Ad Busters is not a mystery, and they come up with these gimicky ideas all the time.

I can definitely see 9/11 becoming a major issue in this,along with the global warming crew.This will definitely help in uncovering the perpe-TRIATORS.

Completely not seeing any cause for alarm. Shocking that social activism is being carried out by social activists...

As I posted in another thread...

This is hardly a secret. Occupy Wall Street started as a mere suggestion on the adbusters blog and actually came to fruition. Having worked with adbusters and being very familiar with Kalle Lasn I can tell you that you have nothing to fear. On top of that Kalle is not running this movement.. merely helping foster it at this point. After the #occupy movement started to spread the media here in Vancouver interviewed Kalle Lasn regarding the #occupyvancouver starting up.




Occupy Wall Street began with a call to action on the blog of Vancouver-based advocacy magazine, Adbusters, in July. On Sept. 17, protesters began occupying a park near the New York Stock Exchange. “We’re the people who catalyzed this thing, but we’re not the people who are running it,” said Adbusters co-founder Kalle Lasn. “The people on the streets who have the guts to sleep out there night after night, those are the people who are really driving it.”


Here it is for you to observe in a paranoid fashion and make insane conclusions from.

www.canada.com...

Vancouver has a long and proud history of activism. It is a very green city with a very ethically oriented population. Greenpeace was also born here for example.
Relax. Kalle Lasn, of all people, is not working for a NWO and, despite previous comments, isn't stupid enough to have some agenda to spawn a socialist dictatorship and take your car away. I promise you that.

This doesn't appear to be some gimmick..Check out this related article:
Source

Unions are working to direct the energy of the anti-banker protests into their leftist agenda. “The challenge is, how do you transfer protest into power?” asked Robert Master, legislative and political director of the Communications Workers of America and a co-chair of the Working Families Party. “At the end of the day, you have to figure out a way to take this energy and turn it into legislation that really changes people’s lives.”

The Working Families Party is an ACORN front. ACORN enthusiastically supported the election of Obama, although this is supposedly not allowed under its non-profit 501(c)(3) tax status.

Well it may not be of any consequence to you but these same individuals are behind the protests in Cairo and probably other places as well.

Let's not forget the military machine that made it's way through as a direct cause of these protests.How many deaths have been caused because of the Arab Spring?
