Occupy Wall Street Protestors Seeking To Go National! And They Have Demands!

| Filed under: Politik

occupy wall street has demands

Shiz is about to get REAL.

Last Saturday, approximately 15,000 to 20,000 Occupy Wall Street protestors occupied Times Square for a New York general assembly, in which they reportedly formed a "Demands Working Group."

The group "established a website and fairly educated/articulated list of solutions," which we're hearing COULD become their national platform. Wow.

Aside from posting their list of demands, they also made the following announcement about a national convention, which they'll hold on July 4, 2012:

"WE, THE NINETY-NINE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, in order to form a more perfect Union, by, for and of the PEOPLE, shall elect and convene a NATIONAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY beginning on July 4, 2012 in the City Of Philadelphia."

The group's list of demands suggestions include the following:

- Ban on private contributions to politicians seeking or holding federal office and instead public financing for campaigns
- Constitutional amendment to reverse the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court
- Single-payer national health care
- immediate passage of the DREAM act
- A Jobs plan
- A deficit reduction plan
- Recalling military personnel at all non-essential bases

We're hearing that it's still not 100% confirmed that the Occupy Wall Street movement as a whole is supporting this, but we're sure more details will come out soon!

    I have been part of this movement and I am very pleased to see someone actually vocalizing specific demands for our representatives in DC. Every single demand on that list is necessary and would be beneficial to America, with the exception of two; The DREAM Act and healthcare. What we are experiencing in America now, with all the suffering, inflation, and unemployment, can be attributed to crony capitalism/corporatism and our monetary policy. We need to get our house in order before we can further burden ourselves financially, which is exactly what those two demands that I object to would do. Government and corporations are too intermingled as it is, and these two would only further exasperate this. I hope all of America is paying attention….. this is a crucial moment in our history. We need to get rid of the status quo in DC. Obama proved there's no difference between the parties anymore… they both serve the welfare/warfare state. Time for REAL change. Vote Ron Paul 2012

    Re: jaycie – I completely agree!! If the Dream Act passes millions and millions of illegals will then get benefits which will bankrupt this country, and the same is true for single payer health care… The people that want these things must not have a TV, and are not watching what is happening in Europe over these exact issues… If you take those 2 things out, Occupy Wall Street and the Tea Party have the same concerns and are on the same page!

    Re: buck – your list is ridiculous! Perhaps you should pick tomatoes for 14 hrs, on a hot summer day of 100 degrees, make less than minimum, and have no insurance. I THINK IT'S HILARIOUS how everyone talks about immigrants and yet now the crops are going to waste because no one wants to do the job. PEOPLE NEED TO BE PAID PROPERLY NO MATTER WHAT THE JOB IS!

    Re: buck – demand 6. Pay your employees properly and you can throw away your first 5 demands. VERY SIMPLE!!!

    Re: jaycie – Perfectly said. A++. Get your weapons ready kids, this is not a drill. We are 12-14 months away from the collapse. These marxist protesters who have no real knowledge of what the Federal Reserve actually is and who actually owns it is unfortunate, when Americans will stand up and most likely take the US back in a 'coup', the marxists protesting at Occupy, will hide beneath their parents floor boards playing with their Star Wars figures and shitting their pants, as it is now known that George Soros has been funding 'Occupy' since its inception. WESTERN EUROPE HAS CONTROL OF YOUR CURRENCY AND YOUR LIFE. It has to stop now. We must get rid of this administartion, as what they will implement in the next four years will be very difficult to reverse by 2016. Ron Paul 2012.

    Rothschild will NEVER allow the US troops from military bases where they really should not be or need to be. That is because, the US DOLLAR is the world reserve currency. The World Reserve Currency is what all other currencies are pegged to. It is OUR MILITARY AROUND THE WORLD, that ensures that the countries occupied by our military - 'take or accept the US dollar as the currency of choice' or face a bullet. The truth.



  14. 14

    The DREAM ACT demand is so fucking laughable - a clear and present ploy to get Obama re-elected.

    Re: knoursense – Gee dumbass, thats because corporations like MONSANTO have bought up and removed most of the farming in the US. We need bring back LOCAL FARMING at an ASTOUNDING LEVEL and get people back to basics in terms of healthy living. THE GOVERNMENT WANTS TOTAL CONTROL OF FARMING IN THE USA. Next they will take over operations at Whole Foods, and then what? They want to force GMO, Plastics, Pesticides down our throats in the hopes that one day we will create one or more of the new hundreds of variations of cancers that will give us an early death. The New World Order wants POPULATION REDUCTION of 80% (stated by David Rockefeller).

    These children think they are 'revolutionaries' - not the protestors who show up, but the leadership of 'OCCUPY' needs the SHIT kicked out of it. First of all what we need is not just the elimination of campaign contributions, we need total transparency of all moves made by our 'ELECTED OFFICIALS'. Second and most important, we need a 3RD PART AUDIT OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE OF NY going back to 1913. THEN…. we need to either NATIONALIZE THE FED and give to the Treasury Dept. with FULL transparency, or…..DESTROY THE FED once and for all and go back to Gold Backed sound money. Finally, we need to round up and show to the American public for the first time (because 75% of the United States can't read) just WHO has owned the Federal Reserve for 99 years and the looting, payoffs and funding of war that has gone at the Tax Payers expense. This would include Nuremberg style trials of the Banking Families of Europe and the Rockefellers. Elimination of the Federal Reserve Tax Act of 1913 > FOREVER!

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – dude calm down, they are 12 year olds that are what 20,000 people, i know that sounds like a lot to you but that less than 1 percent of the u.s. population, consider all those who are just college kids there cuz they want to protest cuz they never have before in ur life, this shit shall pass,

    Re: hcoboy – Please stop with your 99% or 1% bullshit theme park handout flyer. Its silly. They need the TRUTH not celebrity pats on the back soliciting faux capitalism. They should be rallying against the Euro Collectivist criminality that is perpetuated by the FEDERAL RESERVE. Thank you.



  19. 19

    Re: hcoboy – You know what, of you can take that flyer and wipe your ass with it. Thank you.

    Our government should tax the yell out of companies that hire from overseas and penalize them for taking work away from our citizens. The Dream act is cost prohibative and a stupid idea… But all these protesters are a bunch of hippy losers too…



  21. 21

    99 percent?! LOL that's laughable. Not EVEN close. These people are delusional…



  22. 22

    It's about time American citizens woke up and demanded to be noticed by the politicians of this country. We're losing our rights daily while the rich get richer due to our blood, sweat, and tears; as well as being under the constant threat of losing our jobs and homes.



  23. 23

    Lols to all of the people complaining about "they took our jobs" seriously were were you guys when the U.S. was the extreme winner of globalism, everybody was happy. now because your job is oversees ur bitching? its called get a different job one that you as an american counterpart can do better than the rest of the world. the u.s. has moved from a product producing economy to a service economy you need to move with it



  24. 24

    Re: hcoboy – That is incorrect as you usually are. US jobs were directed en masse overseas by the Corporate heads in the US to avoid tax loop holes and to offshore profits that the US would never know about. Revolution must take place to bring back production, regardless the US going head to head with China in a 'Trade War' which is inevitable, but GOOD as it will purge the system and we can get on an even par with fairness in the import export game which right now is lopsided in favor of the Chinese. WE SHOULD NEVER MOVE ALONG WITH A SERVICE ECONOMY. You must enjoy fascism or feudalism because that is exactly where they are trying to lead us all with their TROJAN HORSE MARXIST policies in tow, on behalf of European Total Control.

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – lol your like one of those illuminati believers. I want you to wake up and smell the roses one day and realize that so what if the politicians do some shady shit and so do corporate heads, WE ARE THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD AND HAVE THE BEST GOVERNMENT. how many countries do you know were their government does all ours does? how many countries were those who don't work HAVE FOOD ON THE TABLE. how many countries that provide welfare etc etc. yeah your government may screw up at points, but guess what it is the best one out there. and what is wrong with what you said about moving the jobs out of the country. we can't compete simply that. yeah lets move all the fucken jobs back so that the next time i buy a t shirt i pay 50 bucks for it the cheapest because here people have to get payed more. your car costing more? everything you cost more you moronic buffoon, we would not have this luxurious life, because yeah it is luxurious even when ur poor here compared to other countries.

    Re: hcoboy – That is the most beautiful hallmark card I have ever read. Your definition of the United States is amateur at best and it really speaks to the U.S. post 1995. The greatest country that once was is being taken down and destroyed systematically, and delivering the 'wealth' of the country to the East. The Illuminati refers only to about 6,000+ people which include Royals, Jewish Banking Cartel, Vatican groups (Jesuits), extended political families, and the original bloodline banking families of Rome. In other words, the 'Western European Elite' that control currency in the United States and most parts of the world with their 'central banking system'. If you can control currency in ANY country, you can eventually control all of industry and finally redirect what that country will become. All I have done is follow the money. Thats all, but just know that in corporate America, corporations class A shareholders are usually hidden and its hard to determine who owns what. This is the crux of Europe's control through numerous proxies in hiding their presence.

    Re: hcoboy – Dont talk to me about your model of business or 'chicken math' you ripped from CNN in regards to how goods and services are produced. We are heading towards a Trade War with the Chinese which will actually be GREAT for the U.S. as the import export deal in place is lopsided in China's favor. Derivatives trading, $4Quadrillilon in debt globally, bailouts worldwide through central banks worldwide - THIS is ALL under the control of European banking institutions and they have used the New York banks and the Federal Reserve (central bank) as its proxy platform. This is FAR more diabolical that you speak of and the last thing to go will be the laws in the United States which you clearly are blind to. Then what will you do? I hope you have a bb gun and a slingshot. Dick.

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – hahaha you clearly are a piss poor, undedicated trailer trash hick. your definitely white and not enjoying the white race benefits lol

    Re: hcoboyRe: hcoboy – Awful response. You have to assume what you think you know to make this 'personal'. Have at it. But to your second response, you really NEVER DO know who you are talking to. Good day. :-)
