I would like to know what you think about some of our units showing up at OWS protests.

We can't get what we want alone and neither can you.

Would you support us for what we want if we support you for what you want?

We want to put a stop to this Corporatocracy form of power, a power that effectively rests with a small, elite group of inside individuals or institutions.

this sounds like a question for a local GA - but more information is required.

There is no reason in theory why different groups cannot come together to support each other, OWS and the Labor Movement are an example, with some mixed results thus far.

OWS and the Black Block are another example, again with mixed results.

However, it should be carefully noted that weapons do not belong on the picket line. I do not represent OWS, but for me weapons on the picket line represent a line not to be crossed.

Violence can only feed their fight and give them more excuses to build a tighter prison around us.

We can beat this and we can do it the right way with democracy and independence. You can fight them by fighting the addictions they have made us dependant on, like effortless food. You can boycot the poison crap they are feeding us and promote your own communities and gardens.

However, what we have to work with is litterally set in concrete. How can you grow your own food if everything is private property and pavement?

I feel like the whole world should go on strike until we can establish a government that responds to public scrutiny and supports independence. We need to take care of our food, cultivate our environment, and slow way down on everything else.

We really need to beat these addictions of effortless living. We really have nothing to fall back on, and they have an army of zombies to work with, which are most of us.

State militia or militia independents? Our local militias here in NY are essentially anti-regulator societies; while we generally support town or community governance in American form that is probably the full extent of our allegiance. But it would be interesting to see all this camo command the media.
