They are going to demonstrate in front of the House of Representatives. People is fed up with politicians’ corruption and private debt. Far-right and far-left groups are marching along with liberals, libertarians, social-democrats, conservatives, communists, anarchists against the political corruption.
A Government’s representative has said that this demonstration is a coup d’etat. Hope everything goes fine.

Apart from making themselves hoarse with shouting, the only revolutionary activity I saw last night amongst the demonstrators was their constant, narcisssistic pointing of their cameras towards themselves to capture the moment of their latest public protest for all their relatives and friends back home. When they started getting cold, the demonstrators predictably returned home rather than throw Molotov cocktails, overrun the police lines and storm government offices to end their corrupt, bankster-controlled government. And so it will continue at the next demonstration. A bunch of sheep bleating in protest whilst their lives and futures get blighted and ruined by intangible forces that they cannot confront and overcome.
Is this a model for change. Nah! If protest ever really got to the point of threatening to changed the ruling order, it would be banned and martial law declared. So protest politically all you want - it's just a mechanism permitted by the ruling order for releasing frustration, nothing more. What we are seeing is the gradual destruction of Western society caused by the criminal abuse of its business model by greedy, powerful people. Changing the faces of who sits in parliament pretending to "represent the people" alters things very little because democracy is based upon the illusion that it provides real, alternative choices and that the view of the winning majority is always the wisest and the best.

Does protesting really do anything? Sure you all get together and start holding up signs and yelling for more justice, when in reality, all you are doing is playing into their game.
It's like blaming the President for current issues, you have to look behind the scenes, that's where the corruption is, not some puppet used every 4 years.
You know what we should do? Follow Arron Russo's idea of getting every congressman and senator to sign an alfadavid saying that they will vote to audit the Federal Reserve. But, to be honest, I can't see that happening any time soon.
Protesting is just another trick, a way for real change to not occur. Stop playing into their system!

So what would be more useful, standing outside, holding a sign, and pretending your democracy works.
Or, getting every Congressman and Senator to sign an Alfafavid to audit the Federal Reserve? What would be a long term solution? What would end global slavery faster then, say, eliminating Global Central Banking?
Please, ENLIGHTEN ME.
