Occupy Wall St. is not a leaderless movement.

Occupy Wall St is a revolution full of leaders.
OWS chooses not to appoint a “Head Leader” or “President” because everyone who has participated understands that everyone is a leader.
I am one of the many leaders. Every participant is a leader!
The term “Leaderless Resistance” is being used against the 99% to try and give a general notion to the general public that the occupiers are an unorganized group who lacks foundation. Thos who has attended an OWS General Assembly knows that this notion is false.
People who choose to use their voice are leaders. The General Assembly respects and hears any individual’s voice. Equality and freedom of speech is the basis of the Democracy that rules every General Assembly. This type of Democracy is the reason why OWS general Assembly is incorruptible which makes it a formidable force. Each individual is encouraged to speak any concerns, questions and friendly amendments. The General Assembly addresses any false information and corrects them in front of everyone.
We should change the general information in the OWS webpage to reflect this idea.
The “leaderless” verbiage is paraded by the media and the oppressors to force the hands of all OWS into appointing a single “leader” to try and make it political. WE MUST NOT COMPLY!
If OWS ever appoints a single “leader” or “president”, that individual will be targeted to bring down the whole movement.
The oppressor will deploy the common tactics of name smearing, dirt digging, corruption and lies to try and take down the “leader” and everyone else that is part of the resistance.
We must all understand that once a single “leader” is appointed to be the voice of the whole movement, everyone becomes a follower. This will create a division between the people and the different groups all across the world. This will create inequalities between everyone who participates and that my friends will be the beginning of the end.
DO NOT COMPLY! We do not need a single leader, we are all leaders!
