amodernmanifesto:

In May, the 99 percent will open up new avenues of resistance as activists around the world gear up for the intensification of popular protest and direct action.

And we’re back! After months of relative quiet, interspersed with a handful of mass protests and radical events — like the general strike in Spain and the re-occupation of Wall Street — our movement is on course to escalate into a massive social orgasm of non-violent popular resistance against the diktat of finance capital and the military-industrial complex.

Long left for ‘dead‘ by the mainstream media and political institutions, we once again finds ourselves in the luxury position of the underdog — capable once more of harnessing the element of surprise to grab the system by its proverbial balls when it least expects it; twisting, twirling and turning right where it hurts.

Who knows what this spring will bring! Perhaps May 2012 will forever be remembered as the month in which the worldwide resistance against a defunct global capitalist system spiraled out into orbit? In its latest tactical briefing, Adbusters alluded to that legendary spring 44 years ago, urging us to be inspired by the revolutionary legacy of May ’68, while avoiding the failures and pitfalls that beset the social movements of the past.

It is quite disappointing that journalists are being arrested. They aren’t the paparazzi. Depriving the press of covering the movement but inviting them to come see and write about the mess…

gravewisdom:

A group of “Occupy Springfield” protesters attended the 7th District of Missouri Republican Assembly’s monthly meeting on Saturday to make their viewpoints known, according to KY3 News.

“Major corporations and very wealthy individuals have more influence on our political process than the average person does,” said Christopher Smith. “I would like to restore the level of fairness that I believe all of us really want to have in our system of government.”

The group did not disrupt the event, but Republican Rep. Todd Akins said some people felt the protesters had “[crashed] their party.” But he acknowledged that the group also made the meeting more interesting.

Look at that violent son of a bitch up there.   I think that’s Mike Tyson.

“The individuals who linked arms and actively resisted, that in itself is an act of violence,” UC police Capt. Margo Bennett said. “I understand that many students may not think that, but linking arms in a human chain when ordered to step aside is not a nonviolent protest.”
Psh.  These stupid kids act like holding legal public demonstrations is some how more effective than sitting at home and yelling at the tv.  Once they mature and lose their hope for tomorrow…then they’ll understand how the world works.

yea… the media and some police are such tools.

anti-propaganda:

‘The police will be given a public order power allowing them to clear the streets and tell the public to leave an area during a riot or other disorder, under proposals for curfews outlined by the Home Office.

The power entitles a police superintendent to declare a specific district a public “no go” area for a limited time – for the first time since the Riot Act was removed from the statute book for England and Wales in 1973.

A Home Office consultation paper published on Thursday stops short of making it a criminal offence to be outdoors in a curfew zone, but says it would be an offence to refuse a police instruction to leave the area. It leaves open the question of what penalty might be imposed.’
