Who is protesting on Wall Street? Protesters speak up
NEW YORK — One is a Harvard graduate who was laid off from her publishing job. Another is a retired teacher. Both marched this week in lower Manhattan, protesting for the first time in their lives.
As the Occupy Wall Street protests expand and gain support from new sources, what began three weeks ago as a group of mostly young people camping out on the streets has morphed into something different. It’s now an umbrella movement for people of varying ages, life situations and grievances.
Karen Livecchia has what she calls two “fancy degrees,” including a master’s from New York University. The 49-year-old never thought she’d be chanting in the streets. But on Wednesday, she was collecting signatures at the march.
Nancy Pi-Sunyer also was drawn into the fray. The 66-year-old couldn’t protest during the civil rights movement or the Vietnam war. She wants her voice to be heard now.
Thousands of demonstrators take to the streets of major American cities, demonstrating against the financial system, inequality, the high jobless rate in the U.S. and ‘greedy’ corporations.
The woman above really doesn’t look like much of a threat to society now does she?
This the typical American criminal these days. If you can’t shut them up then throw them in prison. Your tax dollars hard at work. Is this how you want you tax dollars spent? All she was doing was standing up for her rights as an American citizen and she was also standing up for your rights as well. The ones running Wall Street are the real criminals, not her.
Have you ever really though about how your tax dollars are wasted.
Arresting innocent people cost taxpayers a fortune. The cost of arresting the woman above will cost you the tax payer, about $20 to $30 thousand dollars or more. Inflation you know. All because she was standing up for your rights.
Bailouts cost the American tax payers a fortune.
War costs tax payers a fortune.
Corporations cost tax payers a fortune. Their pollution not only costs money to clean up, but it kills people. Try getting rid of a polluter in your neighborhood. The IMF and World Bank help polluting corporations into third world countries to steal resources, pollute the environment and steal the land. Nice bunch of criminals I must say. .
Free Trade agreements cost taxpayers a fortune and jobs. They also increase poverty anywhere they have been implemented. Free Trade agreements also give Corporations more power then Governments.
Not only do the corporations make money, the US politicians make a fortune on these things. They certainly know which stock options to buy to get rich now don’t they? The American Government is one of the most corrupt bunch of criminals you will find along with Wall Street.
Seems the protesters are not the criminals here. They are the ones who want to expose who the real criminals are.
Knowing what I know about the American corruption, my heart goes out to all the protesters.
Seems to me the protesters are the ones who took the time to get educated on the facts.
Education is suffering in the US and elsewhere. They are not teaching children as they should. The survey says and I have heard this thousands of times. Why did they not teach us this in school. The fact is they are not teaching you, because they do not want you to know the truth. They teach you only what they want you to know.
The stupider you are, the easier it is for them to manipulate you. If you want an education, well these days one has to educate themselves.

US politicians, including President Barack Obama, have been calling on Europe to fix its debt crisis, amid fears it will have a negative impact on the fragile US economy.
But there is evidence that the Greek debt crisis began on Wall Street, at the hands of one controversial US bank.
According to former financial regulators, Goldman Sachs made a dozen derivative deals with the Greeks a decade ago, writing its debt off its balance sheet for a number of years.
They also say that Goldman and Greece were not the only ones working such transactions.

Teacher Patricia McAllister was crucified for daring to simply say outloud that Zionists controlled Wall Street while helping in an Occupy Wall Street demo in Los Angeles. She was fired for simply telling the truth. LA talkshow host Bill Handel said on his show just a few days earlier, quote, “My Tribe Controls Wall Street why should I be upset about that?” Of course, he wasn’t fired because he is part of the tribe that runs the media.
So, what are the facts? This video lays out the facts of the Zionist control of Wall Street and International finance like nothing else!
