I wish the people of the US would stand up for their rights and unite in the streets like this and most of all I wish that should that happen that we had news outlets and organizations that would report about it. Article noted and shared.

The people of the world have had it with being exploited and with the destruction of the planet. The world seems to be run by oligarchies, and the masses are rising up against them. I wonder when it will begin in the U.S. and Canada.

You know you're in trouble when even the National Soccer Team stands up with the protesters.
Sue you have a good idea but the real way to get the Elites' attention is for everyone to stop paying their taxes en masse.

We have the Republicans destroying everything worthwhile and the sheeple stay at home, but in Brazil they raise fares 10 cents and the country goes up in flames. Maybe a little interbreeding would do both countries good.

BTW, my nephew married a delightful Brazilian girl. She went back to Brazil to see her parents and the government wouldn't let her leave because she had skills they needed. After 15 months of court battles she's back here with the court ordered right to go visit home and return anytime she wants.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. Good to see this happen. And, we DID have people in the streets all over the country during Occupy. We also had hundreds of thousands in the DC streets prior to the Iraq invasion. Seems like we need people to report from within the system like Ed Snowden, and reporters like the late Michael Hastings.
