On this date last year a tweet went out;
“7/15/11 11:04 AM
Sept 17. Wall St. Bring Tent. adbusters.org/blogs/adbuster… #OCCUPYWALLSTREET”
two months after this tweet was sent a couple hundred people answered the call and converged on Wall Street. This sparked an international movement that saw occupations spring up in every major city in the United States and around the world. Since this tweet thousands of hard working Americans and citizens round the world have been arrested or injured at the hands of our own governments, yet despite the States best efforts to suppress the movement and silence the majority the movement keeps growing and getting louder.
The call has gone out once again to Occupy Wall Street on the one year anniversary of the occupations beginning. You’re not going to find this story in the main stream media so I suggest you do a little digging of your own on the internet to find out the real story. Just remember, the LIBOR scandal is the largest banking scandal in history undoubtedly involving the CEO’s of all the major banking institutions yet our own media, CNN, FOX, MSNBC and ABC have dedicated a mere 12 minutes combined covering the story and investigation. The NYT’s is reporting that the U.S. Justice department is seeking criminal charges against traders. Good you say but that’s not enough, they need to go after the architects of this scandal but that won’t happen because as stated earlier this criminal act had to include the involvement of government officials and the CEO’s of the banks that carried out the price fixing.
