Occupy Wall St, occupy wall street

@ Michael C. - Yes, non-violent means CAN overcome the 1%, and they will. No, they did not respect us, or even their peers, but that does not mean that we should disrespect them.
Hopefully, these demonstrations will continue to spread across the US, and continue on, to become America's "Arab Spring." Our American Autumn.
We are well past our time for renewal, to paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, "change is our right, our responsibility."
People, lets take America back from the 1%, they are trading on your future. These people are traitors to the true American way. Let us see heads roll.
The question is, since the 1% didn't respect the 99% yesterday, what efforts will be needed for us to call upon. Can we get there with non-violence, god knows the 1% doesn't respect Non-violence, not in a violent world of their own making.
"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

Thanks for posting.
Yes! We on the West Coast are joining the East Coast wave and hopefully wash this nation clean of the corruption that has been sucking the life out of our wonderful country. Shame on the media for distortion! Most Americans have tv's, but for those who have access to the internet, we will reach with the truth! Keep forwarding the pix! Like prisoners of war, somehow we will get the truth out to the world!
Thats my hometown.Haven't been there in a while thumbs up.Glad to see one of my former homes taking a stand.
They are a bit organized. They have a nice tent community with a nice sofa for intellectual conversations or stargazing. They are low on funds, especially after investing in the portable potties, but smart enough to ask for donations. Oh yes, they even have workshops, I presume, for making signs.
Their little community is so inviting that I actually had to fight off a slit-second compulsion to pack up some stuff and travel to Oakland, California. When I was a little girl, my grandma lived on Piedmont Street. That was 45 years ago.
We need to keep turning out in larger and larger numbers, like John Lennon said if there's violence you can count me out that needs to be the motto. Think before you fully support the commercialism that binds corporate power. Support a new corporate power that is run by us of safe clean alternative energy.
Good to see this action occurring all over the world. Be the change you want to see!
The silent majority is starting to find its voice. Makes me want to make my own sign and just stand out in front of my house in support of the 99s.
