for these protests.
These people are there to protest for the 'little people' and 'standing up to the elite'.
Yet there are reports of areas that are occupied by these protesters being inundated by garbage, human waste and vermin
Who's going to clean up this mess?
Seems to be a double standard going on here.

Actually, where I just returned from in St Louis, WE Occupiers did police up our own trash, bag all the garbage and nicely stack those bags for the
city trucks as well as frequently walk the entire width and breadth of the park...vegetation and all...to insure everything was picked up and looking
tidy. It worked. Porta-Pots were also on-site and serviced every morning.
Of course Occupy STL also has a very cordial and effective working relation with Police as of this time, and I've heard nothing since returning home
from there that leads me to think that changed. So, perhaps St Louis is different in a number of ways, as other camps I see in the media almost look
like a cholera outbreak waiting to happen. Then again, perhaps they aren't that different and the media is simply showing what they went there
specifically to find. I suspect it's a little of both.
That is the nature of a diffused movement with no leadership as such, and no national guidelines to keep it all looking uniform from one location to
the next. Growing pains.....that is one donation no one need make. Occupy has plenty of those, but they are improving.
