For my friends in the Occupy Movement, everywhere:

I was watching the news (Russia Today, they have great OCCUPY coverage) and the reports about the newest wave of brutal arrests in New York, when I had an idea. People, when you are protesting, and they come to get you in their riot gear and helmets, START SINGING.

"The whole world is watching" is good, but frankly, they don't care.

START SINGING! Sing "The Star Spangled Banner"! Sing, "My Country 'tis of Thee"! Sing, "This Land is Your Land"! Sing every patriotic song you can think of. ALL OF YOU TOGETHER!!! Sing while they march in on you. Sing while they surround you! Sing while they beat you! Sing while they pepperspray you! Sing while they throw you to the ground! Sing while they cuff you, and drag you away! Sing the songs of AMERICA, as if your hearts are breaking with love and pride!

It might just stop them in their tracks.

It might not.

But it will surely send pictures around the world of true AMERICAN PATRIOTS, singing and protesting with one heart and one voice, and being beaten and arrested for loving their country so much.

And WE ARE Patriots, each and every one of us.

So sing. Sing with the hearts and voices of men and women who love their country.


God Bless America, and Occupy

Well, your suggestion does present a rosy picture to those in the backround and may be just the thing to boost morale, on the other hand my suggestion to the demonstrator about to get arrested would be: save your breath. You're going to need it. Without going into too much detail I put 3 out of 6 policemen out of work for two weeks (without pay) as a result of my arrest. But yes, I think that you have a very good idea that would probably work best if effected by those not undergoing arrest. That way people could hear them.

Can somebody help me?

I am trying to figure out if the OWS revolution is a temper-tantrum, or a strategic catalyst for hardcore reformation.

What are the SPECIFIC demands that the OWS movement requests?

Is there any place I could find an itemized summary of the goals the OWS movement wishes to fulfill by virtue of their activities?

I hope the OWS movement is not an expression of anger, or an avenue of therapy for frustrated citizens. I hope the OWS is a credible organization with clearly defined demands and goals that, by advocacy in protest thereof, will materialize into solid, moral, and ethical action by our government and key private sector decision makers.

Please post a link as to where I can find such information. Thanks!
