'Occupy' Protesters Prepare to Go Global

By GOPUSA Staff

As if the Occupy Wall Street protestors weren't annoying enough, now they are preparing to take their message across the planet. In conjunction with May Day observances, Occupy protesters will hit New York and other locations to complain about the "man" keeping them down. If the "man" is doing anything, "he" should be saying, "Get off your butt and do something productive."

You can see 'Occupy's' link with the communist party here.

Occupy Wall Street demonstrators, whose anti-greed message spread worldwide during an eight-week encampment in Lower Manhattan last year, plan marches across the globe today calling attention to what they say are abuses of power and wealth.

Organizers say they hope the coordinated events will mark a spring resurgence of the movement after a quiet winter. Calls for a general strike with no work, no school, no banking and no shopping have sprung up on websites in Toronto, Barcelona, London, Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, among hundreds of cities in North America, Europe and Asia.

Read the full story at Bloomberg

CNSNews.com reports that protest organizers in New York are hoping for the "biggest shut down the city of New York has ever seen."

The announcement went on to cite how Occupy Wall Street had shut the Brooklyn Bridge and another closure of that bridge, as well as the Holland Tunnel. The release claimed: "But this May 1, we will create the biggest shut down the city of New York has ever seen." "We are announcing these blockades now as a fair warning to the rest of the working people of New York and New Jersey who are considering joining the strikes and mobilizations of the day: the city will be shut down, so enjoy the day without the 99%!" warned the site.

Occupy Wall Street has been a global anti-capitalism protest that, according to OccupyArrests, has resulted in 6,877 arrests so far. While the movement went largely dormant over the winter, it has vowed to come strong in the spring.

If they start pitching tents again, somebody please give them some soap.

    …”resurgence of the movement after a quiet winter”
    So after a fairly mild winter over most of CONUS, these morons who believe oh so much in what they preach, are not willing to “suffer” a little to keep the objective’s momentum going throughout the winter?
    Must not be worth much.

      Typical mod without a cause!
      Same kind of nonsense as when “the green weanies” shut down the logging in the northwest. They get paid to demonstrate and have no interest at all in the actual cause. Prostitution in a whole new light; selling ones body but not sexually! Sadly, they do make a difference but only because the legal system stands behind them at the cost to everyone but them.

    Nevertheless, apparently OWS is politically effective if conservative outlets like this website are complaining about them.

    Its all about strategy, complaining about the opponent is meaningless to the undecided voter, it only energizes the base.

      Who’s complaining? These people are just an extension of the old Soviet poster “Workers of the World Unite” with the possible exception that these people do not actually work. Wonder why they are doing it on May Day? Wasn’t that traditional for the Communists?

      How could OWS be “politically” effective if they have not produced any legislative changes and if they are keeping the 99% of employees from earning a days pay by shutting down their work forces? The only thing they are effective at is causing a commotion and causing unrest. There is ALWAYS violence, arrests and injuries. You ought to tell OWS to look at the Tea Party more closely and consider why the Tea Party has been politically effective. That is who is effective. They have produced legislation that went to congress, they are in the political arena via candidates and there has NEVER been an arrest, an injury or unrest at any of their gatherings. So get a life, you are so clueless and are accomplishing nothing. No one likes you or thinks you have any common sense or intelligence. Big waste of tax payer money is all you guys are and we WILL be billing you soon! HA HA! LOL FOOLS

      Actually Dingbat36, MayDay originated in the early pagan world as a rite to celebrate spring and “ask” for the fields and animals and people to be reproductive. The MayPole – think phallic symbol – was a central activity for the festivities.

      The communists – as they did for so many things – “stole” the celebration and turned it into a celebration of their own ideology.

      You’re so right davnkatz! The May Day celebration started before the Christian movement in Europe. It was indeed a celebration of fertility and the end of “seeding” the fields. It evolved in the US as a day of coquettish friendship with placing baskets of flowers or goodies on porches, ringing the bell or knocking, then running away as the intended party answered the door.

      It’s typical that wannabes and cling-ons would turn this day of vibrant juvenile celebration into something sinister and dark.

    All of these avowed “anti-Capitalists” and “Progressives” are nothing but Communists that don’t have the gumption to acknowledge that truth. May day has ALWAYS been the national day of Communism so this is no coincidence. This includes the President of the United States, who was born of Communist parents, had most of his friends as Communists and was raised a Communist. If you look at a line representing the forms of economies and governments you have pure capitalism on the right and pure communism on the left. If someone says he is anti-capitalism, what is he? Read the Communist Manifesto and then read the Democrat Party platform paying attention to income re-distribution, gun control, anti-religion, rich against the poor, workers unions against management. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, then it must be a ,…..!

      Norman Thomas was a three time Socialist party presidential candidate, 1940,1944 and 1948. This is an excerpt from a 1944 speech…….
      “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism.
      But, under the name of “liberalism”,
      they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program,
      until one day America will be a socialist nation,
      without knowing how it happened.”
      “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party.
      The Democratic Party has adopted our platform.”

MayDay originated in the early pagan world as a rite to celebrate spring and “ask” for the fields and animals and people to be reproductive. The MayPole – think phallic symbol – was a central activity for the festivities.

    “The release claimed: “But this May 1, we will create the biggest shut down the city of New York has ever seen.”"

    They probably didn’t get the memo about the scope of Nine/Eleven …

    Cops and mayors got a look at OWS last fall, and some of them were buffaloed into being taken advantage of.
    I don’t think citizens are going to sit quietly if politicians plan to allow it to happen again.

      And just what are the citizens going to do? If our government won’t put a stop to it, who do you think will pay if the “citizens” try? This is a vicious circle we are in and if we don’t get rid of the riffraff in November we will be so lost there will be no return. AND in the meantime, we had better go to our prayer closets and reach out to the only source that can accomplish what is needed!

    So, they are celebrating their big day on May 1st, the Communist holiday. That just figures, guess the truth of what they stand for is finally coming out more clearly.

    Now, if they want to shut down the bridges into NYC they can try but I’d sure hate to be the protester trying to stop the NYC taxi driver from getting his fare. I’ve seen the taxi drivers practically run down even the most agile people…blocking traffic seems a sure way to get hit.

    The Occupy Movement is NECESSARY for our citizens to expose the corruption which Big Business has infected our Government with. Every single person occupying the streets and protesting Corporations is a hero and a patriot. I was compelled to lend a hand and create some new posters for the movement which you can download for free on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/11/propaganda-for-occupy-movement.html

      Memaw: It has historical context from the early days of the Bolshevik Revolution. Comrade Lenin viewed those street protester’s as ‘useful idiots’ to achieve the ends of his Marxist takeover, but were expendable once the ends were within reach.

    This “occupy” thing is a rather pitiful and marginally amusing story. The only reason they have any effect at all is because in libtard/”progressive” areas they are ALLOWED to go through all their adolescent, childish, crude and rude antics. If they tried it is many areas….jail is what they’d be “occupying” instead of dirtying up a street. Why don’t they try that stuff in Red Square or Tianamin? They’d get bullets instead of “latte”. Can you imagine what the Iranians would do to them?
