Wow, never before have so many people had so many views about what they want.

Great to see people standing up for what they believe in but it sure does seem to lack a clear focus and sadly that won't do the movement any good at all in my mind.

But hey we all have different views.

It's a bit like an verbal army that wants to attack everyone instead of directing all the troops toward one target in order to achieve the maximum impact.

I hate to say it but unless someone takes some sort of control this could end up as a verbal war of hot air with no winners other than the rich and powerful being even more convinced that we the people are nothing more than a disorganised rabble.

I don't mean that condescendingly either. I want the people to win but boy do we need some organisation.
Great job though and S&F to you.

It is a verbal army.Getting the message out there.
I attended my first occupy today here in Louisville,KY.
It started today and by the time I left(kids coming home from school) there where about 100 or so people.
It was energizing. People passing by cheered us on.No police presence.

This is nothing but the hippie fringe making asses of themselves. Sad too because there is a lot to stand up and protest about, but these people for the most part can't even put together a proper sentence let alone explain exactly what it is they are protesting except wanting "change".

well then get your condescending ass down there and give them some order, purpose, and grammar lessons. stop criticizing people who are doing what you think about. there is a lot to stand up and protest about yet all you can do is hate on people who have "stood up" while you're sitting behind your computer being negative.

I've noticed this 'hippy' label is trigger word chosen by the media, however I think these people are far from hippies. These people have had enough and they got off their ass and are saying something about it. So many people are calling these people bums, but they aren't in their shoes, and why shouldn't they go to their government for help, this is the same government that has taxed them for years and invade other countries. I think these people's feelings are warrented. Sure, some might think it is silly, but who cares, at least they are doing something.

That's the thing I don't really get, because if you actually take a look at the majority of people there, they aren't what you would typically label as "hippies". Most of them are unemployed or underemployed, a lot of people that look like they're barely scraping by, a lot of people who look like they're still relatively comfortable (albeit concerned). The crowd really transcends all demographics. There are people in suits next to people in rags. Today the protest grew by a multiple, namely because a handful of labor unions joined the march. While people are saying different things, fundamentally, there is a core understanding of what the point of all of this really is, and that is what's important. People are tired of choosing to see either black or white. People are tired of having to choose between either Republican or Democrat. Certainly, the average Democrat of Republican does not follow the party to a 'T', and that's what this is, this movement isn't about following a set list of rules and dogma verbatim, it's about the freedom to choose and to live without being told how you can live or what you can do. It used to be, that if you worked hard you could earn an honest living; privilege had little to do with it. That isn't the case anymore, and this is why people are on the streets and putting their effort into something that they can believe in.

They are organizing quickly, and there are quite a number of intellectuals there in support of the cause. There will be mass boycotts against targeted corporations soon, in an effort to drive stock prices of evil-doers down to zero. This could be an interesting little game changer. Keep your eyes peeled, and come join the cause if you think you can do better.

I feel like a lot of the movement are or should be ATS members. The people down there are really nice, and the general vibe is positive and spirited. It is very surreal, and I can't wait to go back again.

Great job O.P.

Occupy goes Global 15th October.

Get out there and demand change. The two party system is just two sides of the same coin. We have been and continue to be duped.

One question. Did you come across George Soros? Because so many people believe he is the true leader of this movement, which of course is False. The MSM are trying to sell us this in order to discredit the movement.

What I can tell from your video, there are so many issues people are protesting against, and all of them valid.

Peaceful Non Compliance!!

No Soros at all. It really did feel authentic being down there. This is a very exciting event to watch unfold. This is a peaceful protest, all walks of life, a real movement.

Yeah this was quite a show the other night. Bloomberg said the protesters can stay at liberty plaza as long as they want, so you have to give the guy some credit for not being a complete turd. Anyway, thanks for sharing the video, and for those of you beating around the bush, get involved and join us!
