Here come the big guns. They've been planning for quite a while and you have all been warned of this for months now. www.abovetopsecret.com... This is the reality of a radical Renaissance.

All the players are now in the same sandbox and they will soon be fighting for the same toys.

Welcome to Occupy Spring. The Occupy Movement has become more sophisticated, how? It now officially has big name backers like the Teamsters, Moveon.org and other groups.

Its 40 co-sponsors include big names the United Auto Workers, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Moveon.org, and UNITE, the hospitality industry union.

When The 99% Spring was announced in February, organizers vowed to train 100,000 people. It looks like they’ll easily make that goal when their training programs kick off next week.

There are already 918 planned around the country. All the group needs is about 10 people at each session to meet its goal, and many of the programs have dozens of participants signed up.


Wow these groups will all be fighting for attention

But just how many groups are calling for Occupy action this Spring?

Jobs With Justice, United Auto Workers,National Peoples Action, National Domestic Workers Alliance, MoveOn.org, New Organizing Institute, Movement Strategy Center, The Other 98%, Service Employees International Union, AFL-CIO, Rebuild the Dream, Color of Change, UNITE-HERE, Greenpeace, Institute for Policy Studies, PICO National Network, New Bottom Line, Veterans of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement, SNCC Legacy Project, United Steel Workers, Working Families Party, Communications Workers of America, United States Student Association, Rainforest Action Network, American Federation of Teachers, Leadership Center for the Common Good, UNITY, National Guestworker Alliance, 350.org, The Ruckus Society, Citizen Engagement Lab, smartMeme Strategy & Training Project, Right to the City Alliance, Pushback Network, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, Progressive Democrats of America, Change to Win, Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, Campaign for America's Future, Public Campaign Action Fund, Fuse Washington, Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment, Citizen Action of New York, Engage, United Electrical Workers Union, National Day Laborers Organizing Network, Alliance for a Just Society, The Partnership for Working Families, United Students Against Sweatshops, Presente.org, Get Equal, American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, Corporate Accountability International, American Federation of Government Employees, Training for Change, People Organized for Westside Renewal (POWER), Student Labor Action Project, Colorado Progressive Coalition, Green for All, DC Jobs with Justice, Midwest Academy, The Coffee Party, International Forum on Globalization, UFCW International Union, Sunflower Community Action, Illinois People's Action, Lakeview Action Coalition, Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, International Brotherhood of the Teamsters, Resource Generation, Highlander Research and Education Center, TakeAction Minnesota, Energy Action Coalition.

The Ruckus Society is my favorite!!
Do people really believe that these groups represent the majority of people in this country? Really?


99% Spring Action Training

We're at a crossroads as a country. In recent years, millions have lost their jobs, homes have been foreclosed, and an unconscionable number of children live in poverty. We have to stand up to the people who caused of all this and confront the rampant greed and deliberate manipulation of our democracy and our economy by a tiny minority in the 1%.

Inspired by Occupy Wall Street and the fight for workers in Madison, Wisconsin, the 99% will rise up this spring. In the span of just one week, from April 9-15, 100,000 people will be trained to tell the story of what happened to our economy, learn the history of non-violent direct action, and use that knowledge to take action on our own campaigns to win change.

We'll gather for trainings in homes, community centers, places of worship, campuses, and public spaces nationwide to learn how to join together in the work of reclaiming our country through sustained non-violent action.

Will you rise with us and join a 99% Spring action training?

civic.moveon.org...


Over the weekend, the UAW sent emails to its members, encouraging them to take part in a training session. The goal is to make The 99% Spring “as big as possible,” the Teamsters said last week. “We’ll learn to tell the story of our economy and what went wrong, and we’ll learn how we can take action and create great change in this country.”

I like how something as primal as revolution can't even escape commercialization and private interest in America.

Wonder how much, if any, media attention it'll garner.

Probably generate a lot more stories than the OWS last year, due to so man powerful unions involved.

hmm. interesting.

What's radical isn't the "resistance" as you call people clinging to their very livelihoods and liberties.

Radical is what the mega corporations and government are doing to us.

Fortunately, these groups contain many people who like to poop in the streets, sell drugs, and burn flags. The unions have already lost credibility with the American working people.

Unions have surpassed their time and necessity. There was a time when it was necessary to have unions to protect the worker. Now the country needs to be protected from the unions. Can we look at their tax exempt status now?

I recently read the one of the reasons the American industry has failed. People aren't smart enough to take factory jobs anymore. They can't do simple math. They can't write legibly. They can't keep up with the foreign workers education. Guess the new math works everywhere but in real life.

Neither one is radical. Radical, in the context you use it, is by definition a marked departure from the norm. The protestors are not markedly departing from any norm but are proudly walking in the shadows of those protestors who came before them forging a "Civil Rights Movement" and since that time there has been a consistent flow, sometimes trickle sometimes rush of protestors pumping their fists and howling at the moon.

It is, of course not radical that government and corporations are running roughshod over the disenfranchised, this is par far the course.

What would be radical is for individuals to pull out of the highly corporatized system and create their own free and unregulated market, but that is not anything near what these so called "Occupy" protestors want.

Even more radical is the pure fact that these people have no clue regarding how they are being manipulated be the very groups listed in this thread. The people marching on the streets are simply being used as a "means" to an end.

May Day is right around the corner and I highly doubt there is enough money in the coffers to bail everyone out of jail. Oops!

Fasten your seat belt!

the worse part is the OWS protestors are too stupid to realize they are being used... Just like before with Moveon.org, Soros and anon pulling the strings... Now the thug unions are going to pulling the strings... Should be fun to watch !

Exactly. You also see how deep the unions' pockets are.

I think the Tea Party should take a page from the socialists' playbook and send some operatives to their training camps. Then act as agents provocateur and start some sh** at the protests (if the cops don't beat them to it [operative word: beat]). See how they like it when it happens to them.

And this is supposed to represent the 99%?

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Like I've said in the past, this is generated by those in the White House.

Later this summer, they'll be passing out HOPECHANGE buttons!

I checked my area and the closest event is being sponsored by my local USW (United Steel Workers) Go figure. Some events are even being hosted in peoples homes. The thought of registering for one of these events has entered my mind
Just to hear the banter and to conduct my own "Mic Check". Priceless! I'll be sure to skip my showers for about a week prior to attending. Gotta blend in!!

oh its ridiculous where all this money comes from.. It's all fear based money collection too.. Which is as bad as blood money in my opinion

So basically OWS is being supported by blood money at this point... Makes it so much easier, heres the real question I wonder how many of the sheeple protestors that are "train-washed" will vote for Obama now...

You can't call yourself a "peoples movement" when unions and corporate sponsorship are driving the vehicle!

Looks like the "the people" will be "riding shotgun" on that one too.....

As with the other thread linked in the OP (this is the same thing btw), this has nothing to do with Occupy. Any of you would know this if you bothered to look to any Occupy sources. It's difficult I know, to read anything sans hate and lies, I'll hold hands though and get ya through.

Couldn't these be called. . . um. . . er. . . domestic terrorist cells?

That's if they decide to cause damage, create discord, cause harm.
