Occupy Wall Street ‘protest’ has started and it’s going well.. Thousands of people have showed up in New York City and have been occupying all day. This protest will continue for the next couple months! The police are allowing people to set up tents and so on.. The NYPD has sent hundreds of police officers to monitor the event, Wall Street has been completely blocked off and even the bull statue has been barricaded by dozens of police officers!
These occupations are also taking place in San Francisco, London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Lisbon and Athens. Those cities also have a nice gathering and the people are getting their message across by peacefully protesting the system! The media has been blocking this event from all news coverage and even twitter has helped in censoring this event. Everyone has changed the hashtag from #OccupyWallStreet to #TakeWallStreet, and it’s number four trending topic in the New York area.. You can watch the protest live here. Here is the original Anonymous video setting up these protests:
I really think this is a start of something new! Maybe people are starting to wake up and realize that the bankers, politicians, government, federal reserve and everything else that takes away from the citizens is the problem of our failing economy and the suffering of millions of Americans! This may start a new revolution inside of America and I’m glad people are starting to see the light! The only media that has been covering this topic is RT news and they are always reporting the truth but on the other hand; regular U.S news stations are claiming that the protests have now been shut-down and only 700 people showed up!! What a bunch of lies.. Are you surprised? Some new stations are not even mentioning this huge protest which over fifty thousand people actually showed up to protest against Wall Street… Clip from RT News:
There is a lot of different and very interesting videos from the protest. Now I came across this video from the Keiser Report, which states that these people should be surrounding the NY Federal Reserve building which is only a few blocks from Wall Street. I believe that’s true but I’m sure the NYPD wouldn’t allow anyone to protest there. Just do a quick search on YouTube for more videos from the event.. Here are some pictures from the event:
Why We Protest Lawfully… #usdor #occupywallstreet
US Day of Rage endorses our peaceful and legal horizontal mesh tactical plan for the occupation and creation of independent block assemblies of people. Our plan represents the strongest test of the 1st amendment on the PUBLIC SIDEWALKS of Wall Street.
YOU DO NOT NEED A PERMIT TO OCCUPY OR PEACEABLY ASSEMBLE ON PUBLIC SIDEWALKS. Under a 2000 federal court ruling, the use of “public sleeping as a means of symbolic expression” is allowed on public sidewalks in New York City as long as you do not block pedestrians or doorway entrances and exits. See METROPOLITAN COUNCIL, INC., Plaintiff, -against- HOWARD SAFIR, Commissioner of the New York City Police Department, et al., June 12, 2000 [99 F. Supp. 2d 438; 2000 U.S. Dist.]
US Day of Rage does not endorse any tactical plan for #sept17 that plans to converge assemblies of people on private property. The NYC General Assembly, for example, has proposed that Chase Manhattan Plaza be used as the site of a temporary convergence assembly on #Sept17. We know, however, that the CEO of Chase Manhattan, however, has a fiduciary responsibility to shareholders to prevent any occupation or assembly on bank property. He would be obliged to call the NYPD and seek the removal of trespassers according to NY State Law (as of June 23, 2008) Section 140.05 Trespass. A person is guilty of trespass when he or she knowingly enters or remains unlawfully in or upon premises is in violation of the law.
In that scenario, the NYPD would be duty-bound to remove people in the same way as they would be duty bound to act on your complaint if an assembly of people set up camp in your front yard.
The NYPD will be acting in accordance with the law as a result of an unlawful trespass and the occupation of private property from a citizen.
US Day of Rage’s plan to lawfully occupy and create sidewalk block assemblies on PUBLIC SIDEWALKS is in accordance with the law of the land. The right to freedom of speech and peaceable assembly represents a make or break moment for Mayor’s office. Any attempt to remove protestors would be directly in contravention of the 1st amendment of the Constitution. Citizens United, the Department of Homeland Security, and the NYPD/CIA protect corporation’s freedom of speech when it comes to campaign financing. Real citizens, real people, should have the same right to the 1st amendment on the PUBLIC SIDEWALKS in New York City.
I really hope people wake up from this occupy wall street protest.. Screw wall street, the bankers, and the corrupt system that puts people in debt! We really need to start waking up and making the people who created this disaster, to be held accountable for all the lost jobs and houses that were created because of the multi-million dollar bailouts! If your close to NYC, please stop by Wall Street and show your support.. Ill be adding more information as it becomes available about the protests.. If you would like to send me photos or other information about this protest, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
