100 tons of liquid uranium is at the bottom of each of these reactors and no one has any clue how to stop the fission. This will continue for hundreds, maybe many thousands of years. No one has any clue how to stop this fission. We have never had liquid uranium on planet earth before. This means the end of Japan. I posted more links on my facebook wall.

from Occupy London:

Occupy London, part of the global movement for social and economic justice, today pledged to continue the campaign it started over four months ago in solidarity with similar campaigns in the US and beyond. Today, the Court of Appeal ruled that none of the five applications presented by Occupy London and Anonymous UK supporters would be heard.

Tammy Samede, the representative appellant on behalf of Occupy London commented: “It is a travesty that today’s decision will limit voices of dissent within the City of London. However, Occupy is far from over. We’ve cut our milk teeth at St Paul’s and now we are maturing, growing and learning how to run. From our work in schools to outreach in communities to even creating a record label, the creativity and imagination of the Occupy movement is beginning to bloom and our voices will be heard.

“The City of London is being wreckless in not providing a timetable for any action they wish to take and it is of great concern that they have refused to rule out the possibility of a nighttime eviction, in contravention of the guidelines set down by the Ministry of Justice.”

Occupy London Stock Exchange at St Paul’s Churchyard, the longest running Occupy encampment of its size, has now been in place over twice as long as Occupy Wall Street’s occupation of Zuccotti Square, which was cleared by NYPD in mid-November in controversial circumstances. Unlike their counterparts in New York, city authorities in London have been forced to comply with the rule of law and pursue their case through the courts.

John Cooper QC commented: “The five day trial and the hearing last week in front of one of the most influential courts in the country has firmly established Occupy as a leading and influential force in public debate. The legal proceedings recognised their integrity, determination and influence for good in modern Society.”

“Of course my clients are disappointed that in accordance with the strict interpretation of domestic law, they have not prevailed today but they do not regret one second of the chance afforded to them to make their case and challenge the approach of the Corporation and the Church.

“My clients will now be urgently considering their next legal steps with their legal team and will, we anticipate, be bringing their case to the European Court of Human Rights to give that Court the opportunity to consider the state of public protest law in Britain.” Professor John Cooper QC will continue to advise pro bono.

This is only the beginning

The first press release issued from Occupy London on the occasion of its first General Assembly on 15 October said: “Our movement for change transcends political affiliation – you don’t have to be left or right. Come and join us as we begin to open up a space in London’s Square Mile to start much needed conversations about changes in the financial sector and government, so that they better serve and protect the interests and well being of the country.”

On the terms we set for ourselves, Occupy London’s first four months cannot be seen as anything other than a resounding success.

This is just the beginning. The movement is growing and evolving beyond its spiritual and symbolic home by the steps of St Paul’s near the London Stock Exchange. That we have been able to make our points in court – unlike so many of our sister occupations around the world – secures fair process for all protests that come after us.

"We need some public space and we will have public space necessary to protest." Occupy London looses battle for space to peaceably assemble. Case to go to the World Court on Human Rights.

Occupy Portland calls for a national day of non-violent direct action to reclaim our voices and challenge our society’s obsession with profit and greed by shutting down the corporations.  We are rejecting a society that does not allow us control of our future. We will reclaim our ability to shape our world in a democratic, cooperative, just and sustainable direction.

We call on the Occupy Movement and everyone seeking freedom and justice to join us in this day of action.

There has been a theft by the 1% of our democratic ability to shape and form the society in which we live and our society is steered toward the destructive pursuit of consumption, profit and greed at the expense of all else.

We call on people to target corporations that are part of the American Legislative Exchange Council which is a prime example of the way corporations buy off legislators and craft legislation that serves the interests of corporations and not people. They used it to create the anti-labor legislation in Wisconsin and the racist bill SB 1070 in Arizona among so many others. They use ALEC to spread these corporate laws around the country.

In doing this we begin to recreate our democracy. In doing this we begin to create a society that is organized to meet human needs and sustain life.

First Tunis…
Then Cairo and Egypt…
Then Spain and the “Indignados”….

Spain’s “Indignados” and the Globalization of Dissent

The Occupy Movement has taken much of its inspiration from Spain’s “Outraged” Movement: what lessons does Spain have for Occupy now?

December 31st, 2011 - President Obama signs the Declaration of War on the USA.

January 3rd, 2012 - NY Police use “New American War Powers” in Brooklyn New York, against Occupy live streaming website, to shut down “live streaming” internet communications between all Occupations.

The Real Terrorists are on Wall Street. 

Occupy “Die In” at Iowa DNC protests NDAA, Corporate Control Of Politics

Occupy The Caucus took aim at Democrats on the eve of the Iowa caucuses, holding a “die in” to protest President Obama signing a law that could allow Americans to be held indefinitely without trial if they are accused of terrorism. “It’s a slippery slope of what is terrorism and coming at the American people.” said one of the group. Protesters also wanted Democrats to know they were just as guilty as Republicans when it comes to allowing corporate money to heavily influence the nation’s policy decisions. Protesters lay on the floor of a hotel that houses the Democratic National Committee’s Iowa “war room”, playing dead while one read a statement. “The people lying before you represent the victims of the one percent’s war on democracy both at home and abroad. We are determine to remain here until Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chair of the Democratic National Committee agrees to meet with us to discuss our demands that corporate money be removed from national politics and civil liberties be restored to their primary position in all public policy. We seek a discussion about how the democratic party will stop serving the interests of Wall Street and corporate money and start putting people before profits.” On Sunday, the group had invited Schultz to meet with them, but she declined the invention according to an Occupy press release. Twelve of the protesters were arrested for trespassing. Video by Roger Routh.

It was not 10,000 as reported by PBS. 50,000 women marched in Cairo. That night 12/20/2011 Occupy Hartford called a snap event. Good signs and Latuff cartoons
