Maybe we should march to City Hall and request for Bloomberg and Raymond W. Kelly to step down.

Just a thought. Please flame responsibly.



Read the Rules

If OWS sets up a couple of card tables with literature and has twenty or thirty people standing around it chatting with subway riders looking for something to do, it would be nice. But if anybody starts pushing and shoving riders and yelling and causing a mess that's something else. I want to see OWS do more to keep things respectable.

I'm not worried about us pushing the riders, I am worried about the cops pushing us into the riders, the riders being lost in the crowd and inadvertly being arrested or wounded or just simply the cops shut down the trains preventing people from going home to their families.

Obviously all of this goes back to upsetting our base and losing support.

I agree, it will only piss off and cause problems for working people, the ones we purport to want to include.

Bloomberg, the mayor who bogarted himself a third term and now wants the city to go back to a 2 term limit.

Strictly speaking, his rule as mayor is not even legitimate.

That's my point my friend.

To be honest, I seriously think marching to the Subways is a really bad and dangerous idea. Marching to City Hall, though also somewhat dangerous due to the police, makes a lot more sense.
