START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
START A PETITION
x
May 1, 2012
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.
