update: occupation goes global

just one week ago when I wrote about the Occupy  Wall Street protests, it was below the radar, it is HUGE what has happened in just one week…. there are now 1,000+ cities that have protesters including all across the USA, Canada and Europe, even Australia. There is a group protesting the Federal Reserve as well as the London Stock Exchange.

lawsuits have been filed…

BOSTON/Dewey Square – At 1:30 a.m. this morning, elements of the Boston Police Department, Transit Police and the Massachusetts State Police – with assistance from the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department – arrested approximately 100 protestors who engaged in non-violent civil disobedience in defense of a second encampment started by #OccupyBoston activists adjacent to their existing Dewey Square encampment yesterday on a stretch of the Rose Kennedy Greenway bounded by Purchase St., Pearl St., Congress St. and Atlantic Ave.

They love making fun of the demonstrators’ looks, but it’s pretty difficult to step outside the system and live outdoors without looking a little rough in the eyes of the moneyed classes. Jesus and his disciples probably looked pretty rough to some people, too. I’m sure the rich people looked down their noses at Him after He overturned those tables.

That’s not done in polite company.

Think about it: A guy rides into town on a donkey. Then he says the moneyed interests are exerting too much influence on the government – and on some of the religious elite, too. And what was that about the wealthy? Oh, yeah – “It’s easier for a camel to pass through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to enter heaven.”

No matter what you believe or don’t believe spiritually, it’s clear that oligarchic wealth has corrupted our politics, polluted our culture, and debased our basic sense of morality.

And that’s why they’re we’re protesting. I’ve been to New York’s demonstration, and Washington’s. Next stop is LA. But they’re all over the country.

If you haven’t been to one yet, why not stop by? ‘m not an organizer, just an admirer, but consider this an official invitation: Your presence is requested as democracy – and history – unfold before us.

Dress is casual. If you’re part of the 99%, come as you are. (Sandals optional.)

  1. Here is a prime example of inequity in outlr society (but not in banking). In TN thus week a state legislator was arrested for DUI. He also had a gun in his car. The other legislators called it an unfortunate mistake and hoped he could keep is job as chair of a committee. If this had been a regular person- especially a young black man- he’d be labeled a threat to society. I’m tired of a two-tier society based on class structure.

  4. Can I simply say what a comfort to find someone who really knows what they are talking about on the web. You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people really need to check this out and understand this side of your story. you certainly have the gift.
