The song is "How It Ends" by DeVotchKa.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (8281) from Phoenix, AZ 9 years ago

it says so many things,

and most of all it tells us about the people who did it, and that's why we will win...

[-] 2 points by mrtimmy (14) 9 years ago

You're so right!

I love that not only the people who grabbed the money see the message, but that they will have to think about it again right before they hand that money over to someone else. Maybe even just for a second, but they will have to think about being the person handing that same message to someone else.

And that person will in turn read it and think about it. And so on and so on.

I get so happy and excited just thinking about it.This was such a good idea! So much better than just handing out a plain ol flyer!

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (8281) from Phoenix, AZ 9 years ago

You are so right...people don't throw money away.

[-] 1 points by MicCheckWallSt (141) 9 years ago

Some of us have been talking about hand writen letter campangian for mininum wage increase (and hopefully index to CPI) do you think there be any interest in this?

The idea being that a handwritten letter would be more effective than a form letter?

the cops started screaming at people to clear the street. the guy on the corner was just standing there. all he said was, "you yell like my grandmother!" and that was enough to set the cops off. pushing him and pulling down his hat, calling him a "bitch", and taunting him like "what are you going to do, tough guy?" as he was trying to walk away.

The day the NYSE went Yippie

Forty years ago, Abbie Hoffman and friends invaded the heart of American capitalism and sprinkled dollar bills on the exchange floor. Did it make a difference?

By James Ledbetter, CNNMoney deputy managing editor August 23 2007: 2:51 PM EDT

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- It remains perhaps the most striking act of guerrilla theater in American history, certainly in the financial world.

On a steamy summer morning forty years ago - Aug. 24, 1967 - about a dozen young men and women led by James Fourrat and Abbie Hoffman entered the visitors' entrance to the New York Stock Exchange at 20 Broad Street. (The trading floor gallery had been open to visitors since 1939.) They waited while a member of the security staff approached; the group had previously phoned the exchange and asked for a tour, but the guards became nervous about the way that some in the group were dressed.

Still, the group went up to the visitors' gallery, two stories above the busy trading floor. They snaked their way past exhibits showing the virtues of the industrial revolution and the development of modern capitalism. As they turned the corner, they encountered a horde of reporters and cameras.

This made exchange officials nervous. John Whighton, the captain of the exchange's security force, told the group that no demonstration of any kind would be tolerated. Whighton asked the group for a name, and Fourrat said: "George Metesky," and identified his group as ESSO, the East Side Service Organization (the first a reference to New York's "Mad Bomber" from the 1950s, the second to the successor to Rockefeller's Standard Oil). The guard wrote "George Metesky and friends" on a pad, and escorted the group up to the railing directly above the trading floor.

Immediately, the group of pranksters began throwing handfuls of one-dollar bills over the railing, laughing the entire time. (The exact number of bills is a matter of dispute; Hoffman later wrote that it was 300, while others said no more than 30 or 40 were thrown.)

Job cuts from subprime: 18,000 and counting

Some of the brokers, clerks and stock runners below laughed and waved; others jeered angrily and shook their fists. The bills barely had time to land on the ground before guards began removing the group from the building, but news photos had been taken and the Stock Exchange "happening" quickly slid into iconic status.

Once outside, the activists formed a circle, holding hands and chanting "Free! Free!" At one point, Hoffman stood in the center of the circle and lit the edge of a $5 bill while grinning madly, but an NYSE runner grabbed it from him, stamped on it, and said: "You're disgusting."

If the prank accomplished nothing else, it helped cement Hoffman's reputation as one of America's most outlandish and creative protestors. Along with Jerry Rubin and others, Hoffman had founded the Youth International Party earlier that year, and the "Yippie" movement quickly became a prominent part of America's counterculture.

[-] 3 points by MicCheckWallSt (141) 9 years ago

This was definitely part of the inspiration behind part of it :) Though unlike Hoffman, the intent was totally for all the money to go right back into circulation with the message ;)

[-] 2 points by ShubeLMorgan2 (1088) from New York, NY 9 years ago

What was the impact on the media, public opinion, etc.?

[-] 3 points by MicCheckWallSt (141) 9 years ago

Overwhelmingly super positive.

It was only our 3rd action as a group, and no one had any experience with the press so we probably could have handled that better (had a press release ready, contacted them before hand to tip them off, etc. haha).

As far as the press goes, we ended up on the news on a couple stations every day at 5, 11, and 6 am for a minute or two over several days. Like, "This weird thing happened!", "Wait, here's a little video from that weird thing that we mentioned yesterday" kind of thing. Our local indy paper (home of Dan Savage actually) who we did tip off never bothered to show up or write about it at all (before and after), which we found both really surprising and well, lame haha.

As for public opinion it was resounding positive as well. People just on the streets were talking to each other for days and days about it. Many of us would overhear conversations about on the bus, on the street, in cafes, etc. Even 60 year ladies were talking about it positively while waiting for a bus it a few days later! Again, had we handled the press part it correctly it would have been a far more informed discussion we're sure, but it did get people talking and thinking and we'd chime in and fill them in when we could.

That said one of the best parts, and a really big part of the intent, was broken down by "mrtimmy" someplace else in this thread. I'm just going to quote him cos I'm being lazy haha:

"I love that not only the people who grabbed the money see the message, but that they will have to think about it again right before they hand that money over to someone else. Maybe even just for a second, but they will have to think about being the person handing that same message to someone else. And that person will in turn read it and think about it. And so on and so on. I get so happy and excited just thinking about it.This was such a good idea! So much better than just handing out a plain ol flyer!"

[-] 1 points by ShubeLMorgan2 (1088) from New York, NY 9 years ago

I can imagine this sort of action being duplicated in other places too. I'm an old guy who was stationed for a while in the army at Fort Lewis and Seattle is where I spent 24 hour passes. I have a warm spot in my heart for Seattle.

[-] 1 points by MicCheckWallSt (141) 9 years ago

When we announced the action we hoped it would catch on but we planned to do it anyway. I think most people we know thought we were kind of crazy or that it wouldn't "work" somehow or be interesting. We were super happy with how it turned out tho

No kidding, one of our members just finished basic there.

[-] 1 points by ShubeLMorgan2 (1088) from New York, NY 9 years ago

I was a clerk in the Reception Center at Fort Lewis for part of 1968. We processed the paperwork of the new recruits who in those days either were draftees or "volunteers" who were trying to avoid the infantry by signing up for specific MOS' (military occupational specialties) in return for another one or two years of their lives. What possesses anyone today to join the Army ?? If he's an occupier I'd expect he's read a newspaper lately.

Do you know why a cop may poke you in the chest or ribs when they ask you a question? They hope you will take a swing at them or poke back or push them away. Just like anyone would to anyone else. It is instinctive reaction to physical confrontation, and a good way to say that you assaulted them or tried to. Unless the whole incident is caught on camera, good luck claiming your right of self defense or that you just reacted to their initial jab. Cop always right until proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be the instigator.

Just sayin, if you were wondering about those cops actions in the video.

[-] 3 points by shaman17 (59) 9 years ago

I think that cop was being a complete jerk. totally out of line, excessive and unnecessary. legal or not.

[-] 2 points by MicCheckWallSt (141) 9 years ago

agreed!

[-] -1 points by DKAtoday (33802) from Coon Rapids, MN 9 years ago

True. No argument here.

But you see it is also a tactic. One they use often if not oftener.

[-] 3 points by shaman17 (59) 9 years ago

Yeah... but I mean that doesn't make it right! and I don't it doesn't make it something we can change, right??

[-] -2 points by DKAtoday (33802) from Coon Rapids, MN 9 years ago

We can change it, just not at the moment.

Why? we are in a major fight that we need to win, when that is accomplished we can address proper conduct and the fact that no one is above the law.

For now we do our best to deal. We record and we protest. If the opportunity presents we file charges and a law suit.

[-] 3 points by shaman17 (59) 9 years ago

I don't disagree but I think we can do more than one thing at once. I mean that guy can at least be reported for his conduct or exposed to the media (or at least try).

I realize it wouldn't "fix" the problem, but it could at least get one guy who shouldn't be carrying a gun off the streets!

[+] -4 points by DKAtoday (33802) from Coon Rapids, MN 9 years ago

Very true I will not argue one little bit. It will be piece work for a long time, even after we are able to address this full on with full authority. There will always be weeds needing to be pulled.

someone suggested below that maybe occupywallst.org would be interested in posting this video. we've no clue how that works or who to contact or anything, but we thought you might? or know someone else on here who might? we tried writing a message yesterday to the OccupyWallSt account on here, but didn't get a response. we asked a someone else on here but they didn't repsond either. anyway, since you liked it, we thought you might be able to point us in the right direction :)

There is contact information at the top of the page - on the tool bar - just click "ABOUT". You could also try talking to jart. But I would try the contact info 1st. Some times return messages/contact can be slow as this is not a full time staffed site - or at least that is what I think. Anyway hope this helps.

If you run into any trolls send them to me, you know on hockey teams they have enforcers?

Have you ask "rising" about who to summit the video to for consideration?

I see the numbers on YouTube are growing for views :).

Sometimes the hardest thing about this, as with all things, is the ego. When you put so much thought and love into something you care so much about you want everyone to see it, you know that it will make a difference. When doing something for the good of all, it is harder to catch our egos at work, “It’s not for us, it’s for the cause.” Now don’t get me wrong promoting creative work is as important as doing it in the first place, but however it turns out, feel good, do good.

Know that we are many, and we all know this same thing, we know the truth. Don’t stop, as long as one will listen, the only way we lose is if we stop.

well, you may be correct (we're not lawyers or experts), we're not sure that pulling his cap like that was ok. in any event, calling him a bitch on top of all that, while maybe technically within their rights, was totally unwarranted and unprofessional conduct in our humble opinion.
