Occupy Confused? Not on Dame Street–or in Philly either.

A continuing complaint about the Occupy Movement is lack of focus and vague demands. Apparently some folks are hearing impaired and have serious trouble reading. Maybe that’s due to the lackluster education system in America? Or is it selective hearing and intellectual denial? Indeed none of this fits well into 30 second mainstream news coverage soundbites.  Probably because the issues are too big and complex and hence mainstream news mentality FAILS dramatically with anything requiring their attention beyond 5 minutes viewing span.  It’s clear many people still think this movement is a ‘joke’ that will vanish with winter snows and freezing temperatures.  Well, even if the symbolic tents do disappear via snow or police action–the people involved have not and they will not be invisible nor silent — even if corporate controlled mainstream media continues their puppet plays.

While much protest music has come from the past, for example, John Lennon’s “Imagine”, there are new songs being written too.

To protest the recent Budget Cuts on the backs of the people who did not create the continually swelling economic disaster The Spectacle of Defiance and Hope filled Dame Street with scarlet in many forms–including spoken word.

Confused? Maybe  Curly can help clear up a concept or two.

 

If that doesn’t work maybe Peadar  O hlci ‘s  song “Occupy Public Spaces”  will do the trick.

 

Recently a “pigeon” delivered a letter of Solidarity to Occupy Dame Street from Occupy Philly.  So it seems fitting to connect this post about Occupy Dame Street with a tip of the tubes to Occupy Philly with their fierce Foreclosure of Wells Fargo on November 18, 2011.  If this action had aired LIVE on any television station in Philly as it did on Livestream—how could anyone who suffered foreclosure in Philly not have joined Occupy Philly at Wells Fargo?

Oh yeah, they stayed!    And look who WAS watching:

That’s not an American accent, is it?  O my, Occupy unites the world?

    As the movement gains strength so to does the level of response of those opposed to change. ;-(

      And yet the movement continues to grow and evolve. Push back must be expected whenever the status quo boat is rocked.

    great summary with these vids, eva.

    *waving hi, and wishing yu a better 2012* =)

      Waving back, Samanthamj! Wishing you great 2012 too. Summary is only of one occupy in Ireland. I hope it gives some sense of the global perspective of people. Since this post the Irish Budget has come out and it’s a huge OUCH for people who had no part in creating Ireland’s debt. 2012 is not looking too good for many families in Ireland–cuts in heat, disabilitly, education etc that are really going to impact every day living.

    Thank you for all of that. I must fit into the kind of person you described in your first para
    alas
    as no, I didn’t much “get it”. I’m thinking big corporations will always be there, & we’ll still be wanting an IPOD (which I don’t have) or a laptop (which I do), which big corporations will make.

    But your post & the videos explained to me more than I had realised, and it only challenged my attention span mildly 😉

    • January 21, 2012 at 5:03 pm

      Glad to only mildly impose uppon your attention span, WordsFallFromMyEyes.
      One thing for corporations to just ‘make’ things like laptops–another for their owners to try to rule the rest of us with dumping their millions and billions into politics.
      Thanks for exploring what you did not ‘get’.
      By the way, Ireland is in worse finincal trouble than even Greece.
      cheers
