Battle for the Soul of Occupy

Alright you jammers, occupiers and Springtime dreamers….

First they silenced our uprising with a media blackout… then they smashed our encampments with midnight paramilitary raids… and now they’re threatening to neutralize our insurgency with an insidious campaign of donor money and co-optation. This counter-strategy worked to kill off the Tea Party’s outrage and turn it into a puppet of the Republican Party. Will the same happen with Occupy Wall Street? Will our insurgency turn into the Democrats’ Tea Party pet?

It’s up to you to decide if our movement goes the way of Paris ’68, the dust bin of could-have-been-insurrections, or something more daring, more inspiring, something not yet dreamed.

Will you allow Occupy to become a project of the old left, the same cabal of old world thinkers who have blunted the possibility of revolution for decades? Will you allow MoveOn, The Nation and Ben & Jerry to put the brakes on our Spring Offensive and turn our struggle into a 99% Spring reelection campaign for President Obama?

We are now in a battle for the soul of Occupy… a fight to the finish between the impotent old left and the new vibrant, horizontal left who launched Occupy Wall Street from the bottom-up and who dreams of real democracy and another world.

Whatever you do, don’t allow our revolutionary struggle to fizzle out into another lefty whine and clicktivist campaign like has happened so many times in the past. Let’s Occupy the clicktivists and crash the MoveOn party. Let’s #DEFENDOCCUPY and stop the derailment of our movement that looms ahead.

.The US Day of Rage held despite police presence
Sun Sep 18, 2011 4:6PM GMT
Anti-capitalist protesters have continued their rally against U.S. corporatism in New York despite heavy police presence in the U.S. financial hub.

Protesters in New York prepared to bed down in Zuccotti Park, a park a few blocks away from Wall Street. Several hundred protesters remained after the anti-capitalist protest that began at noon on Saturday. The protesters had hoped to “Occupy Wall Street,” but were kept away by a large but benevolent police presence. Storyful

For months the protesters had planned to descend on Wall Street on a Saturday and occupy parts of it as an expression of anger over a financial system that they say favors the rich and powerful at the expense of ordinary citizens

September 18, 2011
(NATIONAL) — Some left of center websites and bloggers are not happy that there has been virtually no media coverage by the big corporate news outfits on the “Days of Rage” protests Saturday, yet by comparison every time Sarah Palin sneezes a national news story pops up, or so goes the argument.

"Most Americans are being kept in the dark about the US Day of Rage by the corporate cable news giants at CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC who have imposed a de facto blackout on the protest," complained in a story about the protests and lack of coverage.

The left of center website said even though estimates have varied from hundreds to as many as tens of thousands that came to Manhattan and others cities around the country to nonviolently disrupt the “disloyal, incompetent, and corrupt special interests which have usurped our nation’s civil and military power, spawning a host of threats to our liberty, lives and national security,” the three cable news networks devoted no airtime to the story.

The bigger complaint is, according to the website, that this sort of non-coverage of events that challenge corporate America is becoming all too familiar.

"In Wisconsin hundreds of thousands of regular people took to the streets each weekend to protest the theft of their rights, and were completely ignored by CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC. Sarah Palin’s Iowa tea party speech was 1/50 as big as the Wisconsin protests, yet she was deemed worthy of national media coverage," said the report which you can read here.…

Anti-Capitalist Movement

This weekend, people converged on New York City and Wall Street for a new round of protests against international capitalism. The time is ripe for a rejuvenated anti-capitalist movement, given the global economic crisis, the expanding class war by the rich against the poor, and economic austerity measures being inflicted on working people. Even New York mayor Bloomberg is warning that economic riots are coming to the United States.

The Occupy Wall Street protest was called by Adbusters magazine and includes other groups.

OWS is not part of any two party system, nor is OWS any “ism”.  Here is one spokesperson from OWSNY.  Occupy Wall Street is one month old. The protests displayed their enormity this past weekend when Occupy movements went worldwide and also stopped up Times Square. Katie Davison, a member of the Occupy Wall Street Media Center, gives us her thoughts if Obama matters to the movement or its demonstrators.
