If the citizens of America don't have a place to protest , the government has failed to represent our Constitutional Amendments !

Police and Military are there for us , and all , !

They do the law and we don't have enough space to do our civic duty , as stated in our U.S. Constitution, to voice in mass in 1 space, our grievances against our Representatives = law must allow citizens to have enough space to do so even , and especially , if it is personal property for such a citizens gathering for a protest against it's Representatives !

Property gathered upon by such a movement = manifest destiny = "OCCUPY" !

Should the masses be allowed to do this legally / morally / for the interests of the U.S.A. / the World ?

We need our own citizen police force that routinely videos and protects us FROM the police.

That's what we're paying "them" for !

The prize for being the 1st to comment is a life time subscription of O.W.S> !

Welcome !!!

Thanks. I feel VERY strongly that we don NOT have the space to make a stand. "Give me a place to stand, I shall move the Earth"~Archimedes. This is why the elite wants no public space, or to limit its use, or create so many hoops to jump through that we basially have no free speech. Private sidewalks are rampant in certain cities = no place to take a stand.

I see you and I are in the minority since this post is being pushed down !

I thought the only restrictions so far have been 'no camping.' Aren't you all allowed to assemble?

[-] 1 points by ropeknot (359) 2 years ago

Zucotti park is private property .

As far as camping goes , That's always been pushing it even if you're homeless .

I think if there are that many homeless in 1 spot they wouldn't know what to do .

I think that's part of what Occupy is trying to show .

States ,cities and towns have their own ordinances .

Let's quit saying we are doing this for the world. No you aren't.

[-] 2 points by ropeknot (359) 2 years ago

Then you're not with the rest of world let alone O.W.S. !

Go back to sleep !

[-] -2 points by Rowsdower (27) 2 years ago

Okay. How are you people doing anything for the rest of the world?

[-] 2 points by ropeknot (359) 2 years ago

By not being arm chair warriors !

[-] -1 points by Rowsdower (27) 2 years ago

That is not an answer. How is this movement helping the rest of the world? And are you so sure that all of them want your help?

[-] 2 points by ropeknot (359) 2 years ago

look at all the unrest in the world , the toppling of governments , all the protests .

Do you think O.W.S. had no part in it ?

To not be able to voice ones' opinion or have a venue for peaceable assembly , as in the post , we are left to Dictatorship .

Please listen carefully: OWS had nothing to do with the revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. Good gods what ego!

OWS is in solidarity with the rest of the world. OWS won't stop at just fixing the US, because this kind of corruption is global. Even other countries were corrupted by the US. As late as OWS is, it's now or never.
