Protest Training! Get Your Protest Training Here!
The folks from Move-On Occupy “whatever” want to provide you with some training for an upcoming series of demonstrations. Crime, disease, violence, conflict and arrests are all part of the occupy picture so far…so it will be interesting to see just what topics are covered. This is from the invite email I just received ….
“I’m putting together an amazing event here in Yakima on Saturday, Apr. 14, 2012, at 11:30 AM and I want you to come! I’m one of more than 800 people across the country who have stepped up to plan a 99% Spring action training.
“We’re going to prepare ourselves to join a huge wave of progressive direct action nationwide this spring. All over America, the 99% movement is getting ready for 60 days of protests, sit-ins, rallies, marches, and more this spring—all aimed and confronting the power, greed, and influence of the 1%.”
The say they will follow in the footsteps of Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.—to win change. Hmmmm how’s that last “change thing” working out?
Once trained, your mission is clear…again in the words of Thomas M. of MoveOn…
“We’ll be gathering massive crowds to confront CEOs and top executives at annual shareholder meetings of Wall Street banks, dirty energy polluters, and corporations that refuse to treat workers fairly. And we’ll be doing everything we can to call out the corrupting influence of corporate money on our elections. “
So, there you have it. Something to do this Aril 14th…God Bless America…or does the 99% allow for that kind of hate speech???
