“Democratic change has been demanded across the Middle East. But was what seems like a spontaneous revolution actually a strategically planned event, fabricated by ‘revolution consultants’ long in advance?“

Excerpts From SourceWatch About Optor
Otpor type of activities entail organizing a militant section of society to instill cynicism in the government, drown out the government’s message, and convey the impression that there is broad based support for the opposition. Its activities amount to disrupting the government’s message and tarnish its image. NB: the same formula has been re-used in Ukraine, Georgia, Albania and Belarus. Otpor’s principal activities were:
- graffiti encouraging cynism against those in power.
- massed concentrations with flags for the benefit of camera crews
- Organizing student groups
- Shouting down government speakers at public events
- Hostile questioning of government officials and demanding resignation; booing… and in general disruptive and intimidating actions
Occupy Wall Street Gets Graphic
Graffiti artists worldwide have been occupying walls and shop windows with slogans promoting the movement.
In Boston over the weekend a wave of grafitti hit nearly two dozen downtown buildings, mostly banks. “End the Fed.” “Tax the Rich.” “Burn the Money.” A Bank of America branch got a big blue anarchist circle-A on the sign above its doorway. (MotherJones)

Occupy Student Walkouts Encouraged:
I hope that all of my friends who might be out participating in – or even just dropping in to check out the Occupy encampments – stay aware, stay alert and stay safe. I have no doubt there are a lot of really well-meaning and goodhearted folks out on the streets protesting the screwed up system we’ve fallen into; I also have no doubt there are some really unsavory people who are ready and willing to use these protests to suit their own purposes and push their own violent agendas.
Whether or not I agree or disagree with the protests, it doesn’t change the fact that I do not want to see innocent bystanders get caught up in violent riots that could easily be sparked by the malcontents who are milling around the marches and camps.
This week, the Occupy Oakland protest turned violent. The protest had moved to the Port of Oakland and successfully shut it down. Protesters then broke into vacant buildings, set fires, broke windows in the downtown area and sprayed graffiti on buildings.
As Oakland police in full riot gear moved in to stop the violence, protesters stared throwing Molotov cocktails, chunks of concrete and metal pipes at the police and fired off roman candles at them. In the melee between the police and the protesters, a number of protesters were injured with four of them ending up hospitalized.
The once peaceful protest turned violent just three days after United Steelworkers International Union president Leo Gerard sent out a public appeal for more militancy. It appears that Gerard got his message through to the mob in Oakland.
Gerard has a history of taking an active role in protests and clashes with the very establishment that supports his union and buys their products. In 1999, Seattle, Washington made the news when they hosted the World Trade Organization meetings at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center. Prior to and during the WTO meetings, protestors gathered outside the building. Gerard and United Steelworkers VP Tom Conway were filmed as they drug two large concrete planters into the middle of the intersection to help block access to the meetings.

”The General Strike in Oakland had many marches throughout the day including this march against Capitalism. Thousands took to the streets in the Californian city and shut down operations in one of America’s major sea ports.”
They also broke windows, destroyed private property and interfered in other people’s rights to earn money and feed their families. The longer these occupations go on, the more they devolve into chaos…the less I am able to remain a neutral observer.
This is not a peaceful protest; this is criminal activity carried out in broad daylight – and there is no way in hell I would ever support destructive packs of thugs running over everything in their path while they scream about human rights and equality…
The hypocrisy of Occupy Wall St. is endlessly amusing to me. These folks could not have organized their ‘movement’ without the tools corporations have provided them. If they had, perhaps I’d have a little more respect for them or still be standing in support of them. I think it is sad that this protest has been hijacked by extremists and has been so poorly directed and carried out.
The NYPD has arrested over 700 protesters who were occupying the Brooklyn Bridge in what could very well be a defining moment in the battle for freedom and liberty in America.
The police apparently corralled the protesters (depending on whose story you believe) onto the Brooklyn Bridge and then started their arrests of American citizens protesting the very banks that have destroyed this country from within.
The NYPD is essentially doing the dirty work for the banks, which makes complete sense when you consider the fact that JP Morgan actually FUNDS The New York City Police Department.
That’s right, the very police department that has been filmed numerous times beating and macing the Occupy Wall Street protesters has received a considerable amount of money from the very banks that the protesters are targeting!
This is an obvious conflict of interest that the NYPD and corporate controlled media do not want you to know or talk about.
Obviously there are good people on the NYPD force but how are we supposed to believe that the NYPD as a whole just wants to protect their city when they are funded by the very banksters being targeted by the Occupy Wall Street protests?
