    Re: Occupy 6-Month Anniversary Protest Ends With Zuccotti Park Arrests

    Now, can the Occupy Movement evolve into something constructive, meaningful, & powerful?

    yes. but they have to decide to have a 10 point platform. They have to be willing to disallusion many of their current supporters, for the sake of standing up for something. they have to 100% commit to non-violent protest and inform the police on instigators who intend on being violent & destructive. they have to work with & support like-minded politicians & candidates.

    they have to start pushing for legitislative change, and demanding specific pieces of legislation get passed.

    this is how they will start getting major support from the American people. this is how they will become the left-wing version of the Tea Party.

    or...they can continue their games, bull****, and violence...and become the laughing stock of political movements.

    its their choice. if they REALLY want to represent the "99%"..the road is clear.

    The whole occupy movement is a leaderless movement. Anyone can be a part of it the right or the left. They have several main goals but much of the movement differs on many of the goals.

    yes, there are maybe 100 different Occupy groups.

    they have no unity. which is partially why they are a joke.

    It's a little hard distinguishing the Woodstock 1999 riots and the OWS. The biggest difference between Woodstock 1999 and the OWS is that the OWS have been much more destructive.

    Harnessing Public Discontent

    "As Marc Dixon so succinctly puts it, Occupy “has got people talking about inequality.” Dixon, along with Elizabeth Cook, also point to the important influences that the movement has on its participants. The encampments are free spaces, where activists form close ties and discuss, deliberate, disagree, and decide the movement’s future direction.

    Yvonne Yen Liu says in describing Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement that, “camp living has proved to be important preparation in transforming atomized individuals into collectively minded occupiers.” Social movement scholars would speak of these Occupy influences as political, cultural, and individual movement outcomes, and across the board there is obvious evidence of the Occupy movement’s wide-ranging impact. A new survey by the Pew Research Center finds that two-thirds of Americans agree that “there are strong conflicts between the rich and poor” in this country. This is up from only 47 percent saying this just two years ago. The Occupy movement has been heard.

    As Bill Gamson says, first and perhaps foremost, Occupy is about “cultural change.” And if the Tea Party movement was able to shape the national debate immediately after the financial collapse, the Occupy movement now has the stage to fundamentally shape the national political discourse as we head into a presidential election year, and this has the potential of having long-term and lasting effects."

    They have unity over several things reform campaign financing so that big business doesnt gain control over politicans, arrest the banking execs that lead to this melt down, and close corporate tax loopholes. What they disagree on are probably social programs etc.
