Focus:Civil Rights
Action Request:Protest
Location:United States

According to the Seattle Times of April 30,
"...city officials have 'evidence that other people may be coming to Seattle' intending to disrupt peaceful protests and commit violence and property damage."
"El Comite' [an immigrant advocacy group planning a May Day march] issued its own statement Sunday........ the statement says 'We are working with members of Occupy Seattle to make each of our events both safe and effective.' And, the statement added, the committee asks 'any individual or entity to immediately cease any attempt to subvert and dismantle the work that we have undertaken for over 12 years'."
----------------------------------------------------------
THOSE WHO ADVOCATE VIOLENCE, ARE EITHER THE SLAVES, OR THE DUPES, OF THE CORPORATIONS.
I will repeat that. I mean it.
THOSE WHO ADVOCATE VIOLENCE, ARE EITHER THE SLAVES, OR THE DUPES, OF THE CORPORATIONS.

In other words, either agents provocateurs {slaves, altho being paid for it},
or DUPES, those would-be "macho" teenagers who thoughtlessly allow themselves to be MANIPULATED by the agents of corporate/government power.
That's it, EITHER SLAVES, OR DUPES.
DUPES, even tho they may not have the slightest idea of how they are being manipulated and USED!




Those who advocate violence, are likely to PREVAIL, this May Day.
Unfortunately, it only takes a very few, to "start something". And, when it is "started", the police very often look the other way! After all, it is some of THEIR OWN, starting the violence!
Then, those COWARDS who started the violence, "fade back into the crowd". Then, it is a signal for the police to start BEATING AND ARRESTING NON-VIOLENT MEMBERS OF THE CROWD OF PROTESTORS.
We have seen this happening again & again & again.
Those who actually committed the violence, the agents provocateurs, seldom get arrested -- or if they do, it is only a matter of form, to keep up the deception -- they get released with a wink and a pat on the back, and a "well done!".

My advice is: if and when there is violence, STAY AWAY.
If violence is anticipated, it is a good idea to SEPARATE YOURSELF COMPLETELY -- physically, in space and time, as well as morally.





My prediction, for what it's worth:
This May Day, unlike what the article says and hopes, will NOT "revitalize" the Occupy Movement.
There is going to be, in several cities, too much uncontrollable violence -- which I am getting reports, in some cities has already started.

The IDIOTS!!!!!!!! How do they think randomly throwing things at targets, while shouting and cursing, will bring about any "revolution"??????
It will bring about the exact OPPOSITE of a Mass Movement -- which the Occupy Movement has {had} the POTENTIAL of being. People will be either FRIGHTENED, or DISGUSTED -- mostly BOTH -- and will AVOID the Occupy Movement. Which is, OF COURSE, EXACTLY WHAT THE CORPORATIONS SPONSORING THE AGENTS, HAVE IN MIND.

It is very significant, that LABOR, the UNIONS, are NOT getting behind the Occupy's "General Strike" message. A "General Strike" without the input of Organized Labor? A FARCE from the very get-go!

NOT TO WORRY, THO.
There is ANOTHER Occupy Movement, which is right now organizing under our noses and will, LIKE THE LEGENDARY IMMORTAL PHOENIX-BIRD, ARISE FROM THE ASHES OF THE "OLD" OCCUPY MOVEMENT.

This May-Day may very well put the NAIL IN THE COFFIN of the "old" Occupy.
This will be GOOD, as it will make room for a New, and Non-violent, "Family-friendly" Occupy.
Plans are underway, as we speak. Plans to contain and ISOLATE COMPLETELY, and AVOID, the pro-violence elements, are being put forward.
THEN, the Occupy Movement, or what replaces it, WILL have the Potential for forming the NECESSARY MASS MOVEMENT to bring about the Social Change so badly needed.

I posted this on the Seattle Occupy Non-Violence {NV} Group Facebook page:

"Those who promote violence are the DUPES of the Corporations"

I avoided the morning march that turned violent {and yes, destroying windows and automobiles IS DEFINITELY violent, and is perceived that way by the Public, ALWAYS perceived that way by the Public, no matter what anybody SAYS in "justification"}.

In the afternoon, I joined the march to Seattle Center, non-violent as far as I could see. I WAS CARRYING THE ABOVE SIGN. I got LOTS and LOTS of favorable comments on it from passers-by! And my sign's picture taken a LOT. So many people told me AT LENGTH why they approved of my sign!

"Those who promote violence are the DUPES of the Corporations"

Chris Hedges is indeed correct: "The Black Bloc is the CANCER of the Occupy Movement".
I believe, that the BEST WAY TO FIGHT THE BLACK BLOCK, WHICH IS DESTROYING ALL WE STAND FOR -- is with RIDICULE and INTENSE, CONCENTRATED SOCIAL DIS-APPROVAL.
Words like DUPES, IDIOTS, COWARDS, IMMATURE, IRRESPONSIBLE, ADOLESCENT -- take away from that "cool, macho" image they THINK they are projecting.
To take them on their OWN terms, as "big and bad and tough", is NOT the way to move them.
Tell them that BREAKING WINDOWS IS A SEXUAL RELEASE FOR THEM {which it most certainly IS!}.
Tell them {and the rest of us!} that they are EITHER SLAVES TO THE CORPORATIONS {if they are paid agents provocateurs}, or DUPES IF THEY FOLLOW THE LEAD OF THE SLAVES -- AGENTS PROVOCATEURS.
After all, an agent provocateur NEVER NEVER YET has advocated PEACEFUL protest! That tells you something! Those who advocate for violent methods, are NO DIFFERENT from the police agents -- ONLY their MOTIVES are different; their ACTIONS are EXACTLY THE SAME; and that is what the Public perceives, ONLY THE ACTIONS.
EITHER SLAVES OR DUPES. Those who advocate violence, NECESSARILY fall into ONE OF THOSE TWO CAMPS. There is no other way for them.
This should become a MEME of the Occupy Movement. How we FRAME things is important.
RIDICULE, LAUGHTER, DIS-RESPECT -- and NOT "fear" of their violence, that just FEEDS their inflated childish egos!
ARE YOU WITH ME ON THIS???????????? Seattle non-violent group?

"Those who promote violence are the DUPES of the Corporations"

This meme, this sign, ought to GO VIRAL.
"Either SLAVES, or DUPES."
-------------------------------------------
Think this is a good approach? Lots of people have told me so!
