Those of us whom are contend with our own lives, regardless of high and low pay, accept the slavehood status quo for ourselves, have no right to judge those whom are suffering immensely, more so those in Europe.
We do not not know their lives, nor live them, but we do know our mankind's aspirations for peace, prosperity, progress, equality, justice and freedom, and if any of those are denied, and despite pleas that went ignored, only violence will result, as seen in Rome, and more to come soon.....
The leaders had failed, and no matter what they do, they can never extinguished the aspirations of humanity, even if they succeed with this generation, they will still fail the next innocent generations to come, if the leaders continue to ignore, use violence and determine to continue with their mistakes...

I've taken a lot of heat lately concerning my lack of enthusiasm on OWS and their Day of Rage solidifies that i can't get behind those people and anyone who supports them.
Maybe if you didn't Cherrypick the bad parts from the Occupy Wall Street movement, you wouldn't get heat (and yes, I'm fully that the people on the other side do the same in that they only show the good).
Elsewhere, bright autumn sunshine and a social media campaign brought out thousands across Europe.
In Frankfurt, continental Europe's financial hub, some 5,000 people protested at the European Central Bank, and some were setting up a tent camp aiming at permanently occupying the green space in front of the ECB building.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange spoke to about 500 demonstrators outside St. Paul's cathedral in London, calling the international banking system a "recipient of corrupt money."
U.K. police contained most London demonstrators in the streets around the cathedral, near the city's financial district. Protesters erected tents and asked supporters to bring them blankets, food and water as they settled down for the evening.
Several hundreds more marched in the German cities of Berlin, Cologne and Munich and the Austrian capital of Vienna, while protesters in Zurich, Switzerland's financial hub, carried banners reading "We won't bail you out yet again" and "We are the 99 percent."
In Brussels, thousands of marched through the downtown area chanting "Criminal bankers caused this crisis!" They pelted the stock exchange building with old shoes then marched on to the European Union sector.
Protesters also accused NATO, which has its headquarters in Brussels, of wasting taxpayer money on the wars in Libya and Afghanistan, saying that one European soldier deployed to Afghanistan costs the equivalent of 11 high school teachers.
In Helsinki, around 300 activists held a peaceful, creative rally with homemade signs and stalls full of art and food.
In Spain, the Indignant Movement established the first around-the-clock "occupation" protest camps in cities and towns across the country beginning in May and lasting for weeks. Six marches were converging Saturday on Madrid's Puerta del Sol plaza just before dusk.
Portuguese angry at their government's handling of the economic crisis were protesting in downtown Lisbon later. Portugal is one of three European nations — the others being Greece and Ireland — that have already needed an international bailout.
Across the Atlantic, hundreds gathered in Toronto's financial district, converging close to the Toronto Stock Exchange and the headquarters major Canadian banks to decry what they called government-abetted corporate greed. Protests were also being held in Montreal and Vancouver.
In New York, protesters marched on a Chase bank to protest the role banks played in the financial crisis, and demonstrations were culminating in an "Occupation Party" in Times Square.
Jesse LaGreca, a leader of Occupy Wall Street, said on "The Early Show on Saturday Morning" the spread of the protests around the world "speaks to the amount of resolve people have. We are seeing our future stolen away from us while the wealthiest one percent get richer and richer, and I'm glad people are taking a role and participating in their democracy."
The growth is "happening very organically," he says. "There is communication (among protesters worldwide) through Twitter, through Facebook, through social media and facebook, though social media, and just through friends who are concerned about each other. But the organic nature of this movement just can't be denied."
