#OCCUPYWALLSTREET Orientation Guide

One final strategic push.

Good news culture jammers!

The weather forecast for tomorrow is partly cloudy skies and highs of 68°F. Nighttime temperatures will reach a low of 52°F. There is a small chance of rain later in the week. Bring, at minimum, warm clothing, sleeping bag, food, water and a tarp.

Saturday's occupation begins at noon in Bowling Green Park. The first people's assembly will start at 3 p.m. at One Chase Manhattan Plaza and continue until our one demand is agreed upon by all. Check out the full schedule of events.

A leaked bulletin from the New York Police Department reveals that they expect at least 5,000, and maybe even 20,000 people to swarm Wall Street tomorrow. That just might be enough for us to pull this off!

A telephone support line has been set up by occupywallst.org. For directions or help call (877) 881-3020 to speak with a local activist. For legal advice, or to report an arrest, call the National Lawyers Guild at (212) 679-6018.

Democracy Now!, Bloomberg News, the Washington Post and CNN covered #OCCUPYWALLSTREET today. The CNN article is a good summary.

When asked about the occupation, the mayor of New York City responded, "People have a right to protest, and if they want to protest, we’ll be happy to make sure they have locations to do it. As long as they do it where other people’s rights are respected, this is the place where people can speak their minds …"

Anonymous says they will release their new hacktivism tool at 7am in solidarity with #OCCUPYWALLSTREET.

While Michael Moore and the rest of the mainstream left continues to be largely silent about #OCCUPYWALLSTREET, American rapper Lupe Fiasco has been vocal in his support. Lupe has vowed to donate 50 tents to the occupation and has written a poem celebrating our efforts.

President Obama will be in New York City at a private $38,500 per person fundraising event on Monday, September 19th starting at 5:30 p.m. at 820 Park Avenue. Maybe we can go there and invite him to join our people's assembly?

For those who cannot attend one of the many solidarity events happening in Milan, Madrid, Valencia, London, Lisbon, Athens, San Francisco, Santander, Madison, Amsterdam, Los Angeles and now Algeria and Israel, there will be a live stream of events at: livestream.com/globalrevolution

This is your last chance to send a message to all your friends via Facebook, Twitter and phone asking them to join you tomorrow.

For up-to-date information follow occupywallst.org, nycga.net and @occupywallstnyc

Good luck … Hang in there!

Optimistic but ...

I run my own business and break my balls to net 40k a year as well.. And so do millions of other people.. Most aren't so lucky. And then there are leeches that suck the life from each one of us until we start abusing or own people. And we do, as trying to put the spotlight on the real criminals is like trying to storm into the 'white(elephant)house' with a list of realistic demands that wold have a positive effect on the general population.

For the SHOCKING naked tip of the iceberg truth, read all bellow..

It is perhaps a measure of America's resilience as an economic power that its demise is so often foretold. In 1956 the Russians politely informed Westerners that "history is on our side. We will bury you." In the 1980s history seemed to side instead with Japan. Now it appears to be taking China's part.

These prophesies are "self-denying", according to Larry Summers, a former economic adviser to President Barack Obama. They fail to come to pass partly because America buys into them, then rouses itself to defy them. "As long as we're worried about the future, the future will be better," he said, shortly before leaving the White House. His speech is quoted in "Eclipse", a new book by Arvind Subramanian of the Peterson Institute for International Economics. Mr. Subramanian argues that China's economic might will overshadow America's sooner than people think. He denies that his prophecy is self-denying. Even if America heeds its warning, there is precious little it can do about it.

Three forces will dictate China's rise, Mr. Subramanian argues: demography, convergence and "gravity". Since China has over four times America's population, it only has to produce a quarter of America's output per head to exceed America's total output. Indeed, Mr. Subramanian thinks China is already the world's biggest economy, when due account is taken of the low prices charged for many local Chinese goods and services outside its cities. Big though it is, China's economy is also somewhat "backward". That gives it plenty of scope to enjoy catch-up growth, unlike Japan's economy, which was still far smaller than America's when it reached the technological frontier.

Buoyed by these two forces, China will account for over 23% of world GDP by 2030, measured at PPP, Mr. Subramanian calculates. America will account for less than 12%. China will be equally dominant in trade, accounting for twice America's share of imports and exports. That projection relies on the "gravity" model of trade, which assumes that commerce between countries depends on their economic weight and the distance between them. China's trade will outpace America's both because its own economy will expand faster and also because its neighbours will grow faster than those in America's backyard.

And more thoughts...

We keep thinking about how easy it would be to save America. We're almost tempted to send a letter to the president or something. But why bother? He wouldn't listen. He wouldn't understand. He wouldn't care.

The country is in decline precisely because it is not in his interest to understand. That's what zombification is all about. The zombies take over. They control the government, the military, the schools, the doctors...even big businesses. They rig the system so that competition is difficult...and honest work scarcely pays.

It is a situation vividly illustrated here in Baltimore. It's a great city in some ways; it has more liquor stores than churches, for example. But it is a zombie city too...living largely off of taxes and debt. The more "services" the city offers to zombies...the more it attracts zombies to take advantage of them...the higher taxes go...the more the real, private sector moves to the suburbs...and the more zombies are left in control of the city.

It would be easy to fix Baltimore, if the zombies would let you. Just cut taxes...and eliminate the warm flames that bring the zombie moths hovering around. Cut city jobs. Cut handouts. Stop paying people to do nothing.

Maybe we'll run for mayor. Our slogan: Zombies Out of Baltimore!

We'd get 2 votes. Maybe three. You don't get elected in Baltimore — or America — by criticizing the zombies. They're the biggest single voting bloc!

*** But what caught our attention recently was the problem of security. People are worried about terrorism. Signs up on US 95 still ask for "Terror Tips," for example.

So here...we've got a tip. You want to stop being a target of terrorists? Easy. Stop asking for trouble.

First you have to realize that the Pentagon is as zombified as every other bureaucracy. "Fighting terrorism" is just another zombie make- work project. But it is not just a waste of money. It is worse than that. It makes enemies. America has more enemies now than it had before it began its 'War on Terror.'

It is a lot less safe.

Plausible deniability!
Gareth Porter explains:

In December 2007, at a conference in Washington, DC on al Qaeda, former State Department Coordinator for Counterterrorism Daniel Benjamin offered a laundry list of things the United States could do to reduce the threat from al Qaeda. But he said nothing about the most important thing to be done: pledging to the Islamic world that the United States would pull its military forces out of Afghanistan and Iraq and end its warfare against those in Islamic countries resisting US military presence.
During the coffee break, I asked him whether that item shouldn't have been on his list. "You're right," he answered. And then he added, "But we can't do that."

"Why not?" I asked.

"Because," he said, "we would have to tell the families of the soldiers who have died in those wars that their loved ones died in vain."

His explanation was obviously bogus. But in agreeing that America's continuing wars actually increase the risk of terrorism against the United States, Benjamin was merely reflecting the conclusions that the intelligence and counter-terrorism communities had already reached.

greezyone

We understand that some of us have lively hoods that are rooted in Wallstreet. However, it is not destablizing anything by assuring that money and politics are as seperate as church and state. That IS the correct thing to do. Your job would still be there. We are in no way trying to take away someone's job, that would be counter revolutionary. Instead this movement offers you the opportunity to maintain your lively hood through your work and job, just do what is right and let the consiquence follow.
