Make up your own mind. Use the links provided here to know what is really going on.

The Occupy Movements - the 99%s, are like a steam roller. Now, in over fourteen hundred cities...

It can no longer be claimed that this is a "hippie movement", or "disgruntled youth", or "folks jealous of the wealthy", "those looking for free handouts", ACORN, or Unions or even the "far-left dingbats" without making yourself sound misinformed and/or dumb (or maybe just trollish).
Although, some dissenters might actually be "Shills", "dis-info agents" and/or "agents provocateurs" as those types do exist in any/every movement. This is a rEvolution.

There is a message - There is a stand which is being taken... Most folks from the occupy movement simply ignore those who aren't "getting it" or those who are still standing on some socio-political platform left over from the last century. The repeated media hype and old stale rhetoric stands still as the movement passes them by.
Young interent users are pretty swift and from years on sites like Youtube, 4Chan, facebook, myspace, and Reddit they know a "troll" and/or ignorance when they see it. Everybody has heard all of the agendas and propaganda (ad infinitum)

This thread is about YOU getting YOUR own info and understanding YOUR own ideas.
Don't fret about the 99% -vs- the 1%, ... The 99% idea is merely a slogan as we are all the 100%. As you check the links you will grasp the meaning of the movements and what they are about.

Spreading to a city near you (world wide)
As Occupy Wall Street has been the main focus the movement is/has quickly spread.
Much can be found on facebook and Twitter (twitter #OWS or #OccupyWallStreet);
England - occupylondon.org.uk...
France - www.facebook.com...
Ireland - www.guardian.co.uk...
Germany - www.facebook.com...
Australia - indymedia.org.au...
Using the hashtags below you can find cities in the USA on Twitter (*i attatched their messages)
#OccupyMadison - *Showing solidarity for the fellow 99% fighting hard with occupy wall street. Wisconsin wont rest, corporate greed has touched us greatly.
#OccupySTL (Saint Louis)
#OccupyChicago also #OccupyChi - *We are the 99% We will be at the FED - Chicago, IL @ LaSalle & Jackson. Join us to create a system that is actually For The People!
#OccupySacremento ... Plus, there are many many more...

Although some politicians are nervous about joining the Occupy movements or favoring the message, some of those known for being outspoken have concurred with the protesters...
(R) Buddy Roemer: thinkprogress.org...
(D) Bernie Sanders: www.youtube.com...
(D) Dennis Kucinich - (I) Ralph Nadder - (R) Ron Paul - and Prof. Noam Chomskiwww.youtube.com...

Passive protesters abused by police as crowd chants shame!(at the police) and ask them, "Who are they protecting?"... www.youtube.com...

And here for your interest or amusement is and example of what kinds of things the 1% spend their money on when not buying politicians and legislators. Here are two links:
A Falangcai vase, expected to sell in excess of $23 million. 80 lots, estimated to bring $81-121 million, offered in a special evening sale during Sotheby’s Spring Sale Series in Hong Kong www.allartnews.com...
And of course Mansions and castleswww.lasvegasbahamas.net...

For every chant on ATS and other sites claiming "Wake Up" and claiming others are "Sheeple" this is the time.
We may not get there in an hour, or today or without some getting their heads cracked and arrested, but we are going to get there... with or without you...

I really wish they'd stop calling themselves "the 99%"

You had me until "The great Flava-Flav", lol.

Either way thanks for the info and all of the links. I agree that this is just the infant stage of the real movement and have said as much. I also agree that there will be some cracked heads. Violence is inevitable. It didn't need to come to this, but control is a hard thing to give up.

My wife read it to me off of the CNN crawl on the bottom of the the news as i started typing this. But here is a couple of links to other sources making the same claim...

Press TV:
"The anti-corporatism campaign, which began in New York's financial district under the name Occupy Wall Street, has now spread to more than 1,400 cities across the globe... ...The website of Occupy Together, an umbrella group for the national movement, reported that there were 'Occupy' events currently running or planned for October in 1496 cities across the world".

I wanted to thank the op for the info. The main stream news is reporting a watered down version of the facts as usual, if they report at all. I am curious though what the comment below means about ,
"Indeed but then propaganda is what they are best at" What do you mean by "They" ?

From the link in the thread referenced in my above post. (Google translate used, Im not sure how well it is translated)

translate.google.com... 2%2Fboelge-af-finansprotester-rammer-nu-koebenhavn%2F&act=url


In Denmark, people are ready to go to the streets to demonstrate against the big banks' greed and capitalism in general.



It is grotesque that while we have helped banks with billion warranties, and they simultaneously before allowed to borrow at low interest rates in the National Bank, then, thousands of Danes sacked and punished with higher interest rates," he says


It looks like Denmark is protesting against the big banks in general. They also have a facebook page where Im guessing they have more info, but most of it is in Danish and I can barley read it.

This


(Denmark Scandinavia) We are the 99% and we can't swallow any more. We want equality for all and no more predator capitalism to exploit us and our planet. We just want to live in peace with the world and have our kids grow up in an equal world.


or this

www.facebook.com...



So no real targets just all big biz and banks
because "our rights are being undermined by the alliance between politicians and big corporations."

Thanks everybody for posting new links to the world and other cities...

There is a new Wikipedia page up now too... en.wikipedia.org...

Also, i've heard several times on Austin feed and Indiannapolis feed and on twitter that Oct.15th is going to be global revolution... It's been vague and i don't know what is meant by it...

Always remember through love anything can be accomplished. Hate and violence is the old way, time to turn the page - everyone creates the future and when our children and grandchildren look back on us and wonder what we were thinking, what will it be that we were thinking? And if hate and violence over-rules we wont be here anymore anyway.

Be happy or not

La Paz y
Mucho Amore

PS. This is the poster for the Occupy Movement... i was told that this is the #1 demand

Here is another "Occupy Wall Street", related facebook link calling itself - BANK TRANSFER DAY - and here's a blurb from the site...


"Together we can ensure that these banking institutions will ALWAYS remember the 5th of November!!
If the 99% removes our funds from the major banking institutions to non-profit credit unions on or by this date, we will send a clear message to the 1% that conscious consumers won't support companies with unethical business practices.
www.facebook.com...

We should also keep in mind the difference between "Wealth Inequality" and "Income Inequality" (although sometimes interrelated).
Those who acquire a great deal of financial wealth do so primarily through the appreciation of fiscal portfolios. For this reason, financial wealth involves only stocks and mutual funds, and other investments. Hence the difference between the 1% and us the 99% (i'm pretty sure no one in the 1% is on ATS).

As the saying goes, "No Man is an Island". We all rely on each other...

How you feel about where you put your money is your business (mine was already in a credit union just for convenience). It was just another link in which i was directed.

Bolshevik revolution 2.0

It went well for the Russians didnt it? Yeah.

90% of the kids in the street are just pissed off and looking for anything to pissed against...regardless of the fact that they have no idea on what to do about it.

The other 10? Van Jones, Steven Lerner, and Soros (likely many more).

This is your ows group.
