Occupy New York Now Without a Home
« on: November 16, 2011, 09:47:06 AM »
The anti-Wall Street protests, which are being driven from their urban encampments across the nation, now face a pivotal challenge: With their outposts gone, will their movement wither?

In New York, where the police temporarily evicted Occupy Wall Street protesters from Zuccotti Park early Tuesday, and in other cities, dozens of organizers maintained that the movement had already reshaped the public debate. They said it no longer needed to rely solely on seizing parks, demonstrating in front of the homes of billionaires or performing other acts of street theater.

They said they were already trying to broaden their influence, for instance by deepening their involvement in community groups and spearheading more of what they described as direct actions, like withdrawing money from banks, and were considering supporting like-minded political candidates.

I think this is the end of the road for the movement. They never really had a good chance, then they were pushed from the steps of Wall Street to the park, and now they aren't even allowed to stay there. What a waste of time and effort, they could have done something if they focused on getting the bums out of DC.
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. -Eisenhower

Don't they still live with their parents?  ;D

This is definitely the end. Agreed, Conely. Misplaced energy.
