The Encampment in Liberty Plaza

With the Occupy Wall Street movement going into it's forth week, many people have felt the need to take heed to what the movement is calling for action on. Yesterday, thousands of people attended the larger general assembly in Washington Square where people were able to use a soap box to get their opinions and suggestions out in the open. The reason why the organizers decided to bring the general assembly to Washington Square Park is mostly because the movement has grown beyond the small size of their home base and encampment at Zuccotti Park.

Just going to Liberty Plaza and seeing what is happening there is the reason why this movement has been as important than any other movement that this nation has endured in the past. It is a movement that is exposing the facts about the failings of our socio-economic system and we will no longer sit by as giant financial institutions gamble our lives away.

The NEED Act & Ron Paul / Dennis Kucinich 2012?

Everyone who lives in America knows the dire situation our country is in at this present time. Millions of Americans are without jobs and wall street has taken every bit of wealth from the people and transferred it to themselves. There are protests erupting all over the country under the "Occupy Wall Street" banner and we really need to support some type of radical reform from our government to actually make a change for the better. We now realize no lone President is going to save us from this mess.

Although it is still going to be very hard for Ron Paul to obtain the Republican nomination, both he and Rep Dennis Kucinich are the only politicians coming forward with a real plan for reform that is scaring the daylights out of the elite. The NEED Act (H.R. 2990 - The National Emergency Employment Defense Act) could very well possibly end fractional reserve banking and the federal reserve all together.

Ron Paul has a very strong following and also supports ending the federal reserve system and giving the power to coin money back to Congress. Dr. Paul also suggested recently that he would be open to having Kucinich in his cabinet. This would be truly something that only good could come from for the American people. It would be a great thing for America & American politics to see Republican & Democrat working together for the common goal of restoring America to its former glory. The wealth of this nation belongs to its people, not the private banks.

Let us, we the people, use the new momentum we have obtained from the Occupy Wall Street movement to support honest people like Representatives Paul & Kucinich and support an agenda that will change this country for the better.

Is the war in Libya really justified?

For months now NATO and many supporting countries around the world have been supporting rebel forces in Libya. No matter what your stance may be on the issue, one fact is clear, many innocent civilians have been killed in the relentless fire fights, shellings, & bombing campaigns. Do you think this support mission is truly justified? Is this no different than most western countries foreign policy goals of the middle east region? Libya has a lot of oil, just remember that.

Over 700 Protesters Arrested on Brooklyn Bridge

Watch live streaming video from globalrevolution at

Whether you have already heard about this movement or not, no one can deny that the Occupy Wall Street movement is growing with each passing week since its inception. Today is the beginning of the third week of the protests and this weekend is already shaping up to be more confrontational than last week in terms of police response.

Over 400 protesters were arrested when the NYPD led a section of the protesters onto the Brooklyn Bridge. Police kettled hundreds of people and called in buses and vans to escort all of them back to the 1st precinct in lower Manhattan. Traffic was blocked for hours.

Was this entrapment? The NY Times reported that this was a pre-planned move on the NYPD's part. If so, then the police are really making a hard case for themselves as protectors of freedom.

It also doesn't help the fact that JP Morgan Chase recently donated $4.6 million dollars to the NYPD. Is this a protection racket? You decide.
