The whole movement seems to gain in momentum quite rapidly, it's actions like these that tell a story of frustration in regards to the financial corruption that is going on and a youth that is ready to fight for their futures.

I do support this, and I do hope that things will change accordingly.

You support red paint and egg throwing as a means of protest?

Perhaps things are different in Italy, but, if things keep escalating in that fashion, it will be red blood on the walls and other places.

That, I don't support.

even though the criminals control the governments writing the laws, the common people can still smell a criminal.
the pupets of these criminals are writing the laws, so nothing they do is illegal.

the financial sector has become a fat parasite destroying the world economy.

there is no future for the next generation if they don't get rid of these parasites.

This was not a peaceful protest.

And answer your own question here. If things get that bad to where peaceful protests are no longer effective, are you going to surrender your own life to make a point?

I bet not, but you will be saying it's ok for somebody else to do for you, right?

I think its about time someone storms goldman sachs but the corruption does not stop there. Ask yourself why did it take so long to figure out "something" is wrong with capitalism. Even here on ATS you see sooooo many people supporting it along with the corruption it espouses.

It seems you have to accept the whole package...the good with the bad....and there is no other way. If you say your a socialist then people jump to the ignorant conclusion.....oh commiee here...lets club him/her to death!

Capitalism had its chance and miserably failed, partely to 24/7 corporate propaganda and partely to greed of the babyboomers. Yes I want part of the pie tooo mr rockefeller!!!! Can I have?

Too little and too late if you ask me. The laws made the last 30 years in america and the sellout of europe to interested private parties has done much damage. Socialism is not just tax and spend for welfare benefits, its more than that. The unionists were the only people defending socialism but they got #ed by the ignorant masses wanting "the american dream".

Instead of throwing eggs at a building. Maybe they should be throwing eggs at the CEO of the Goldman Sachs? But wait they are the ones behind these uprisings. Never mind.

Call me uninformed, but how did capitalism ruin amerika? From my understanding, governent regulation is helping only select companies prosper and fall. Gibson is a good example. Fender has not been prosecuted even though it is said they both get their wood from the same place. So again, more regulation destroyed capitalism.

In regards to socialism... its a great idea....but it ends there. An idea.

The protests were quickly dispersed by police and security was restored to the elegant building, though red graffiti was daubed on its walls expressing anger at Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and proclaiming "Give us money."

Protesters in Italy's financial capital also hurled eggs at the .quarters of UniCredit, the country's biggest bank.
That's awesome
. These people probably got arrested for this, but at least they made a statement and took one for the team.

Good on the youth and why not, they are the ones that will end up paying for all this corruption if nothing is done to stop it.

ok, Uninformed,

Government regulation and judicial reforms IN THE USA have helped select companies. Why? BECAUSE THE US GOVERNMENT IS IN ON IT. That's the kind of stuff that happens in a country where capitalism has reached the imperial stage and corporations have enough power to influence political policies and law. This has nothing to do with socialism or how you perceive it to be a failure... by the way, maybe you should actually study what socialism is and how many popular governments around the world use it to provide for their populations.

Capitalism is ok if it's just individuals and small to medium sized companies.

Once you have big business and big banks they corrupt society and turn people into slaves- whether they realize it or not.

The government isn't the main problem- massive wealth concentrated in a few hands and corporations is the problem. Most of the political problems are caused by these wealthy people bribing the government to do it, so it's their fault no matter how you look at it.
