The mob—The crowd—The mass has arrived...

It's inevitable that these protests will become more common and grow. The financial collapse is looming and our elected officials look more impotent everyday. Our media has only played the role of trying to pacify us and divert our attention.

Debate on Sky news between Tax Alliance member, and Guardian Columnist over the Protests in London. What gets me in this debate, the dude from the tax alliance call those who are protesting jobless. Us they wouldn't be there if the banks had helped out those businesses in trouble.

Complete Hypocrite, he does not represent the ordinary working individual.

A friend of a friend is one of the head spokes people for Tax Payers Alliance. I wasn't surprised to hear her boyfriend is a banker in London. Ever since knowing that , I've never been a big fan of the Tax Payers Alliance.

Yes, that's right - did you know that it takes twenty-five 9-year-old children 4 days work in a far-east sweatshop to manufacture one Billy Bragg song - the evil exploitative swine! Not only that, they get beaten if they forget to knock all the aitches off the words and put in the glottal stops....

the guy who works for the taxpayers alliance just showed himself to be an obvious dumb, government shill "Maybe if they all went and got a job and started paying taxes..." At least that woman put him in his place. Good find! Not that I trust the Guardian either but there ya go...

Why don't they go out and get jobs and help the economy??? Is he for real! This is ONE of the reasons this whole thing started is lack of jobs.

I dislike the Guardian and don't hold Tonybee with much better regards but she has gone up in my expectations a notch after that!

You don't call the fire brigade and expect the reply of "Well if you put the fire out yourself we won't have to do anything and your house wouldn't be on fire" do you!

Has anyone noticed the Mainstream, Media are not covering this as much as they have over the weekend. I swear the Government is inter veering and pressuring them to stop showing footage of the Protest.

We the funders off the BBC should write to them demanding that since we pay for them to broadcast they should be covering this protest.

I have been listening / following this story on the BBC. However, to be fair on the "mainstream media" there are more important things to report over and above a protest against capitalism. However, just checking at 2217 I can confirm the BBC are reporting the Occupy London / Corporate Greed. Oh look, it's also on the Sky website and ITN.

Go on, write to the BBC, or perhaps look before you leap.

This is nothing more than a PR move on behalf of the CofE, who have been in decline for some time. They are not doing this because its the right thing to do, they are doing it to hopefully gain more converts.

Police told to move along as anti-bank protesters camp out at St Paul's
Occupy London protesters set for long haul outside cathedral as global action against financial institutions gains momentum

In their stand against mammon, protesters occupying St Paul's churchyard to vent anger at reckless bankers found heartwarming support emanating from the house of God.

Far from requesting that the 300-strong crowd be removed from the cathedral steps on Sunday , the Rev Dr Giles Fraser, canon chancellor of St Paul's, requested that the police themselves move on as the Occupy London Stock Exchange protest entered its second day.

A line of officers had taken up position at the top of the steps to "protect" the building. "Which was very good of them," explained the canon. But then he had asked them if they would leave, "because I didn't feel that it needed that sort of protection"

Absolutely fantastic. I had to read this twice just to make sure I wasn't imagining things.

And for those idiots who keep harping on about it being socialists or communists, I think the next quote pretty much sums it up.

"I'm 40. Never been on a protest before. But I found myself here," said one man, who asked not to be named, from Sheffield. "I'm pretty middle of the road politically, so I wasn't sure about all the Socialist Workers placards at first. But this issue has attracted people from all walks of life. I'm a diehard atheist – there's a woman over there with a 'Jesus is Calling' placard. It's all of us."

"And for those idiots who keep harping on about it being socialists or communists"

Mate, you don't seem to be getting it lol.

The reason they're gunna be picked out in the Media is cos it's a Psyop. It's goin to be promoted as a "Major" part of the "Occupy" movements, even tho there's all kinds of people turning up to these protests.

Because, eventually, that will be the sort of society the globalists will usher us in to.

People like you prolly think the "Red Shirt" uprising, with Socialist ideals, was a good thing.
That was just like the "Arab Spring". These sort of uprisings are infiltrated/Supported by Western powers/institutions. When the old regime, that didn't play ball with the El-ite(Saturnalian Cult), globalist, establishment, the Western powers move in and guide the changes to that specific country. Why? Because the new people at the top will be easily controlled by the sort of political policy the globalist want.

Information about reducing your own support of Corporatism/The Global Economy and details of what I am talking about, in regards to the control of political "Uprisings", such as the "Red Shirt" protests in Thailand, can be found here, under the section called....
Globalist Reactionary Hand-Wringing

You'll have to read through half of it to get to that section.

My point being, the OWS/Worldwide, growing "Occupy" movement, isn't totally bad, because the grassroots ideals, such as ending "The Fed" in the US, the End of privatized Central Banks running all economy's should be a priority. Plus, the downsizing of government, stronger regulation, fairer tax band and the exclusion of Corporate influence on our nations policies. But, we cannot just simply jump on boar with any so called "Uprising" without proper investigation of the people at the top of said movement. We need to properly look into the money trail, the backing by political leaders/NGO's and the way the MSM portrays them, is a must.

Look at the NLP style of the "People's Microphone" lol. Also, the sort of people who turn up to speak in these rally's. Take this guy for instance...

Ivan Marovic

He was part of the Serbian Otpor movement, that was lead the protests in 2000, I think. Here's a link to the agency, called USAID, that backs them USAID

Otpor became the Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS)

Look into their influence in the Balkans and the Arab Spring Here
This is just one of many threads you can find on them, connection to US funding, US NGO's and people like George Soros' Freedom House, as well as links to his funded foundation, called Ad Busters. (I put most of this in my previous posts in a another thread, before it's deletion)

"For the last decade, globalist foundations promoting democracy and freedom have been active in fomenting uprisings all over the planet, and fresh off their international successes they have finally come home to roost within the"

"OPTOR’s support and funding network reads like a who’s who of CIA and globalist front foundations, including well known CIA front organization USAID, George Soros’s collectivist front foundation Freedom House, and the National Endowment for Democracy whose operational successes include the Rose Revolution in Georgia, the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, and the Tulip Revolution in Kyrgyzstan, each heavily financed and backed by groups funded by or connected to the U.S. government. Likewise, events in Tunisia, North Africa and Egypt were orchestrated out of the finest detail, and it seems that events surrounding the OWS movement are no different."

These last two quotes are from Infowars, which I know, play the fear card, give little answers to problems and who's front man, Alex Jones, is a money grabber and known to sensationalise. But, the info is real, I've verified it, and it's easily researchable, through multiple sources.

We can't just follow the leader, the sheep and just jump on board the "Occupy" Bus, without properly investigating the movement. To repeat again, what I said in the previous "Occupy" Thread....

I think some of the ATS Community need to check that motto again!

Just the other day a thread asked what song do you find motivational, I responded with 'Feed the Birds,' a song from Mary Poppins about kindness to those that may be in need, as a woman begs for money to feed the birds on the steps of St. Paul's. The children wanted to help her but in contrast the bankers wanted the children's allowance for themselves...

I just find the connection of the themes of the movie being greedy bankers vs St. Paul's interesting. I'll have to think about this some more.

They do what a flying report, Both the BBC and Sky news have been doing that for the past couple of days. Maybe next time you should look before you accuse others of Leaping first!

And Yeah I have already written to the BBC, I will see if I get a response.

GOTO fake arab spring sponsored by western corporations and think-thanks. this ain't much different.

orco ab chao.

also, yes, it is beautiful to see a commie sharing "something" with a jeebus camp freak.
they're both human, eh? how riveting. and surprising, right? so, let us join our hands and
pat ourselves on our respective backs because we, as a society, have indeed come a long
way. commies and jeebus freaks sharing something in common...

que surprise, eh?

It's so wonderful to see how OWS has grown and is becoming global !!

Its awsome to finally see so many different cultures worldwide joining together and uniting as one in a movement that has the potential to change our world ...kick out those that are ruling us, brainwashing us, making our lives negative, and stealing our money and lives !

But whilst I think its really fantastic the good Rev asked the police to go away, I am also wary as its a prime opportunity for organised religion to hijak the movement and look for lost sheep to bring back to the flock..
..another control mechanism that has been known to hide the truth.

Jesus was and still is great dude....and I am sure he is watching over and helping, just like all the great teachers that have guided us, but I just feel that it would be a great pity if this oneness we are all feeling is divided because religion comes into it and seperates the unity everyone is having without beliefs in religion.

Hope I'm wrong and paranoid, and the church really does believe in the movement.

Peace Love and Tranquility to Earth and All.

Its one thing to have a peaceful protest and its another for the small amount of people that only go to cause trouble.

I think that protestors should be kept away from buildings of high social value like churches, cathedrals etc...

Thats just my thought.
