This is the “Civilized” Country We Live In

Watching this video, I felt like I was watching something that occurred in the 1950′s. Prepare to be infuriated.

Although the report does not appear to be from or related to MSNBC, the footage is real.  The footage is of the Occupy Wall Street protest.  If you haven’t heard about it, here is a bit of info from the Occupy Wall Street website.

Our Mission

On the 17th of September, we want to see 20,000 people to flood into lower Manhattan, set up beds, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months.

Like our brothers and sisters in Egypt, Greece, Spain, and Iceland, we plan to use the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic of mass occupation to restore democracy in America. We also encourage the use of nonviolenceto achieve our ends and maximize the safety of all participants.

Who is Occupy Wall Street?

Occupy Wall Street is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%.

The original call for this occupation was published byAdbusters in July; since then, many individuals across the country have stepped up to organize this event, such as the people of the NYC General Assembly andUS Day of Rage. There’ll also be similar occupations in the near future such as October2011 in Freedom Plaza, Washington D.C.

 

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.
