Occupy Wall Street: A Bottom Up Revolution in Need of Leadership to Define Its Mission

Post by Jobless_in_Ma on Tue Oct 18, 2011 2:36 pm

With all of this positive energy and support for them, Occupy Wall Street must mature into a thinking, functioning body, with organized leadership and a clear vision of what it is they want to accomplish and change. It is time to create that list of demands, giving the movement direction and a larger purpose. All kinds of organizations and unions have offered their names in support of the movement, but Occupy Wall Street must be careful not to be co-opted. Indeed, they are surely aware that some of the names suddenly supporting them are nothing more than extensions of a sellout Democratic party that has become a branch office for the special interests, located right next to the GOP's.

I hate when people politicize it. But if these are all dems that makes me very happy. This should not be a left right thing but the Tea Party are steering it that way. Corruption transcends both sides.

The entire point of this occupation is NOT to have anyone in charge or define one point as their mission. The people are in charge, not one party who only represents a fraction of the people or corporate money. The message is clear, we want decent wages, lower taxes, our social security, government that is for the people who elected them, not the corporate money, rid politics and government of big money, decent education for children and adults, affordable health care for all people and the banks to not be able to just use our money as they please. Most of all, when the people take to the streets to shout, they want someone to listen, not blow them off and quote a non-existent poll that reflects their core values.

Hardball was just interviewing two of the many protesters at occupywallstreet and getting their views on what it means to them and why they are there.
