I have tried to assist where possible, and I do see your point. Many people have their own ideas about the occupy "protest" and many have large
misconceptions. I will try once to break it down for them, and for you.
* I am not affiliated with ad busters nor do I personally know any member, this writing is merely the product of personal research in the matter
directly from its sources. From what I've gathered ....
The protest is an awareness campaign created by an anti-capitalism group to further their goals in minimizing the power of the corporation in all
areas of your daily life. They do not wish to see the corporation control a government as this is a fast road to fascism, nor do they want the
corporation to be valued over citizens in any courtroom or legal proceeding. They also obviously do not want society brain washed with advertising,
hence the title Ad Busters.
The awareness campaign is meant to effect every person across the globe, and has achieved this goal with the evidence clearly shown in the news, the
water cooler at work, and on this very forum. This awareness campaign is being measured as any campaign is, and is only one stage in a greater
production. The people at the core of its creation are battling a myriad of issues that have been thrown into the works, including the multiple
attempts at momentum shifting by other movements, political ideology's, and people that have somehow decided to take it upon themselves to start
their own websites, and organize voting as well as become "leaders," and "official sources"
The creators are extremely organized individuals, and have a set agenda that is less a list of demands, as they are not expecting any "demand" to be
met, but rather a road map on how to repair a system that has obviously gone off the rails. This road map will include legal actions that will be in
response to many of the items listed in the general outline off 22 problems. I seriously shouldn't have to link this, but ... not the original list
but close. coupmedia.org...
When these legal actions are brought to the forefront, there will be an audience that is paying attention, that may not let the actions die. This is a
pressure tactic to get the whole world watching, and then ask for true action on the issues. The lawyers are ready, the media is ready, and the people
are ready its just a matter of the filings and the execution of the campaign being streamlined to take into account the myriad of unexpected new
This is not over, it has just begun.
