Just watched a short doc on the Occupy camp in Newfoundland, Canada. At the end they talk about how they are supported by the city and peacefully coexist with the police force.

Can you truely say you are occupying a city if the city actually SUPPORTS you and doesn't mind that you are there? Isn't the point of protesting to be visible and make them listen to you? It seems ass backwards to me.

The video is here

One of the aims of the movement is full awareness of who we, the 99% are.

Acceptance of that, is a good thing.

To that end, this just might be one the most successful occupies around.

Aita pe'ape'a!

Why is that backwards? The point is to create public awareness about issues.

People with money run Public Service Announcements and Ad Campaigns, the poor and disenfranchised have movements and protests.

And is it failure if no one is belligerent or no one is being stifled? Must they find a nerve to touch?

I don't see why it's a big deal. You can't spread the word if you get shut down.
