Many of the early threads and posts were quite supportive and positive about this movement and people were really interested and waiting to see what
would happen....as the movement grew and caught fire and travelled around the globe, people got worried.... not only those with something to lose (The
1%) but also those who don't want change, who are scared of what change will bring and are worried by anything new and revolutionary.
This is when the lies and propaganda started.
This is when people started with the rape, murder, robbery, nazi, theft and all manner of other BS stories and lies and propaganda about the
It's sad that so many believe the BS being spread and parroted by people who are trying to bring down a truly organic and global movement.
Europe and the Middle East had been protesting and rising up for a year or more and then America (New York to be specific) had their own little sit
down, peaceful protest.... who knew then that this would spread and unite the already existing protests and angry people.
People who we know, come from all walks of life and from every political angle and persuasion.
We have young and old..... conservative and liberal.... rich and poor.....unions and business owners.
It is fantastic.
And despite the best efforts of cowards, liars, disinfo spreaders and absolute idiots on the news, on ATS and out there in the real world, this
movement continues to press forward and continues to be the main news... people the world over are discussing issues they never did before... these
issues and protests are still the basis for most news programmes and many people's conversations.
I think the fact that the movements do not have a leader or a clear goal have worked to their advantage... people need a single figure or single idea
to beat and break down and ridicule.
OWS provides no such figure.. which is why we have seen the kinds of disgusting lies and propaganda and underhand tactics used by the idiots who seek
to attack and destroy this movement.
They cannot beat a thousand ideas spoken and put forward by millions of people.... they just can't.
So keep on keeping on.... these Global Occupy protests are just the start.
People are angry and they now know that they have a voice again.
The economy will get worse, more joblessness and more poverty.
This makes for more pissed off people...
If I were against or afraid of these movements, I would be very worried about the future.
Thankfully I completely support this movement and so pleased and proud of what my fellow human beings have accomplished and continue to do.
