I wish AdBusters told everyone to meet on Wall Street a long time ago.
It’s great to finally see this happening. Between the revolutionaries and mainstream Democrats attending these rallies, I’m not sure this movement can gel into something with a solid platform and demands–but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The concept of Hope” helped win an election, so a broad “the rich have fucked us” theme might have some staying power–and the benefit of being true!
I love the amorphous nature of it. The olds really aren’t getting that at all and it’s funny watching pundits furrow their brows in frustration at the movement’s refusal to conform to something they can stuff into a soundbite.
