OFFICIAL List of Demands from Wall Street Protest
Here is the official list of demands:
We – the 99% – DEMAND …
No Official Demands
If you can’t see the list, you’re not alone.
Contrary to widespread myth, there is not an official list.
When Fox Nation reports on an official list, they’re wrong.
When brilliant and dedicated activists point to official lists, they’re mistaken.
When people call OccupyWallSt.org the official site for the protests and cite various lists there as official (there were over 1,000 different proposed lists at last count), they are incorrect . That website itself states:
OccupyWallSt.org is the unofficial de facto online resource for the ongoing protests happening on Wall Street. We are an affinity group committed to doing technical support work for resistance movements. We are not affiliated with Adbusters, anonymous or any other organization.
As I noted last week:
High-level economists support the protests, so don’t write them off as being uninformed or without goals or focus. The mainstream media should “play dumb” … everyone knows what “We’re the 99%” means, and that the failure of the richest 1% to follow the rule of law or the wishes of the American people, and their corruption and manipulation of the economic and political system are some of the core structural problems which must be changed.
