One Year Anniversary Of Occupy Wall Street Protecting Our Right To Poop In The Street

September 16, 2012

About 300 people observing the one- year anniversary of Occupy Wall Street marched to a small concrete park in New York’s lower Manhattan that served as headquarters for the protest movement. Protesters marched from Washington Square Park and headed south down Broadway to Zuccotti Park, chanting as they went. The group later thinned out. The march came on the first of three days of planned events. The official anniversary date is Monday. Occupy Wall Street’s protest against economic disparity eventually spread to other parts of the country and world.

February 3, 2012

The catchy rumor ahead of Facebook’s initial public offering filing was that the company’s record IPO will create 1,000 millionaires overnight.With a current plan to raise $5 billion in its stock sale — the largest Internet IPO in history — employees who were granted stock options in Facebook when they were hired certainly have a lot to gain.  The Daily Mail reported that the company will have “well over a thousand” employees who will be millionaires after the company goes public, based on comments from an anonymous former in-house Facebook recruiter.

Occupy Sacramento Forecloses On Homeless With Curb Appeal

November 9, 2011

As the Occupy Sacramento movement settles in for another night inside Cesar Chavez Park, another group sits, watches and wonders if they’ll ever get what they call “their park” back.

“These homeless people have been out here alot longer than you have,” one homeless person tells CBS13.

For years this plaza in the heart of Sacramento has been a homeless hide-away. But some just want the Occupy group to go away: “I just wish they’d give us our park back,” one homeless woman says.She’s one of dozens of homeless who’ve signed a petition:

“They got their own security, they act like the police,” one man tells Lopez. “Anytime you do anything they say you can’t do this and that … and we’re saying ‘you’re not the police.’”

Eye View Sports, Bama LSU Showdown Creates Occupy Endzone

November 5, 2011

Just how hot a ticket is Saturday’s substantial showdown between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ala.? Judging from the demand for tickets the prices those ducats are commanding should provide all the insight into the game’s enormity according to secondary online ticket markets.According to online ticket search site SeatGeek, LSU-Alabama tickets purchased within the last week have sold for an average of $606. That figure is over $200 more than the average price of LSU-Alabama tickets purchased in early September, and a whopping 1,100 percent higher than the average face value of Alabama football tickets ($55).

Listings on SeatGeek have ranged as high a $7,706 for a seat in the lower portion of the South End Zone section at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

The only college football matchup within the past two years to exceed this level of demand was last year’s BCS National Championship game between Auburn
and Oregon, with tickets reaching $1,352 on average. But average ticket prices for this weekend’s game are in the ballpark with those of other major sporting
events, such as Game 7 of this year’s World Series ($601.42) and Game 5 of the 2011 NBA Finals ($686.61).

ACORN Officials Scramble, Firing Workers and Shredding Documents, After Exposed  as Players Behind Occupy Wall Street Protests.

Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York — operating as New York Communities for Change — have fired staff, shredded  reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for  leaking information in an effort to explain away a FoxNews.com report last week  on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to  sources.

NYCC also is installing surveillance cameras and  recording devices at its Brooklyn offices, removing or packing away supplies  bearing the name ACORN and handing out photos of Fox News staff with a stern  warning not to talk to the media, the sources said.

Occupy Wall Street Kids Live In Opulent Homes, Parents Quickly Remodeling As Protests Continue

November 2, 2011

Many “Occupy Wall Street” protesters arrested in New York City “occupy” more luxurious homes than their “99 percent” rhetoric might suggest, a Daily Caller investigation has found.

For each of the 984 Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested in New York City between September 18 and October 15, police collected and filed an information sheet recording the arrestee’s name, age, sex, criminal charge, home address and — in most cases — race. The Daily Caller has obtained all of this information from a source in the New York City government.

Among addresses for which information is available, single-family homes listed on those police intake forms have a median value of $305,000 — a far higher number than the $185,400 median value of owner-occupied housing units in the United States.

Some of the homes where “Occupy” arrestees reside, viewed through Google Maps and the Multiple Listing Service real estate database, are the definition of opulence.

Using county assessors and online resources such as Zillow.com, TheDC estimated property values and rents for 87 percent of the homes and 59 percent of the apartments listed in the arrest records.

Even in the nation’s currently depressed housing market, at least 95 of the protesters’ residences are worth approximately $500,000 or more.

Occupy Wall Streeters Continue To Get Free Stuff, Sex Ed In Schools Fail

November 2, 2011

It’s the Autumn of Love!

Occupy Wall Street protesters are flocking to nearby health clinics for STD  and HIV testing after getting their freak on in ’60s-style hookups with crusty  strangers, sources told The Post yesterday.“We give directions to clinics if people ask for information regarding STDs,” said the volunteer, who identified himself only as “Captain” and added that  pregnancy tests are also a hot item.

“Like anything else, it happens. People ask, and we do the best we can for  them.”

Volunteers at the medical tent hand out cash, usually $15 or $20, so the  randy radicals can visit clinics that cater to a low-income clientele, the  source said.

“Last week was free love,” said a medical professional at a clinic located a  short walk from Zuccotti Park, referring to the number of people who organizers  have referred for sexually transmitted disease testing. A volunteer at the park admitted concern among protesters about STDs.

Experts said it’s the right thing to do. Occupy Wall Streeters failed sex ed..

 

 

 

 

Occupy Wall Streeters 99% White

October 29, 2011

Two weeks into Occupy Wall Street’s takeover of Zuccotti Park, a group of Bronx community organizers and friends rode the subway down to Lower Manhattan to check out a movement they supported in principle.

When they got there, they recalled, they found what they had suspected: a largely white and middle-class crowd that claimed to represent “the 99 percent” but bore little resemblance to most of the people in the group’s own community. That community, the South Bronx, is one of the poorest areas of the country and home almost exclusively to blacks and Hispanics.

“Nobody looked like us,” said Rodrigo Venegas, 31, co-founder of Rebel Diaz Arts Collective,a center for political activism and hip-hop run out of a warehouse in Mott Haven. “It was white, liberal, young people who for the first time in their life are feeling a small percentage of what black and brown communities have been feeling for hundreds of years.”

OWS Protestors Not Interested In Personal Goals

October 17, 2011

The month-old Occupy Wall Street movement continues to grow, with nearly $300,000 in the bank and participants finding satisfaction in the widening impact they hope will counter the influence on society by those who hold the purse strings of the world’s economies.

For the most part, the protest action remained loosely organized and there were no specific demands, something Legba Carrefour, a participant in the Occupy D.C. protest, found comforting on Sunday.

“When movements come up with specific demands, they cease to be movements and transform into political campaign rallies,” said Carrefour, who works as a coat check attendant despite holding a master’s degree in cultural studies. “It’s compelling a lot of people to come out for their own reasons rather than the reasons that someone else has given to them.”

The demonstrations worldwide have emboldened those camped out at Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, the epicenter of the movement that began a month ago Monday. But there is conflict too. Some protesters eventually want the movement to rally around a goal, while others insist that isn’t the point.

Media Has Unconditional Peace With Occupy Wall Street Movement

October 16, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street movement that has sparked protests across the nation and the world enters its fifth week today as more demonstrations are planned. On Saturday, protesters gathered and marched in effort to bring awareness to corporate greed in Birmingham, Ala.  Occupy Birmingham organizer Allyn Hudson said demonstrators are tired of the wealthy one percent and corporations controlling political decisions.

“People in America are concerned with having their voices drowned out by an endless tidal wave of money that is purchasing our politicians. We want our government to be free of such influence,” Hudson said.

“Economic and social equality that we seek cannot be achieved without complete and unconditional peace,” she said.
