It has been revealed that a coalition of organizations, are planning a coordinated "Day of Rage" in major cities across the USA. With an incendiary name like that, people are envisioning London style anarchy.
The main target of this event is New York City, with protests planned to spread across the nation. Ground zero will be Wall Street and it's symbol, capitalism. Seems the aim of this "protest" will be to disrupt Wall street, AKA: Heartbeat of the financial activity of the nation....The planned date for this event is September 17.
I just checked the calendar and this date happens to fall on a Saturday. Uh, hate to break this to you, but Wall Street is closed on the weekends. But why worry about minor details!
Maybe the intent is for a long term "happening" as advertisers are telling participants to "bring their own tents" and plan on having an old fashioned sort of "tent city" in downtown Manhattan. This sounds interesting, I wonder if "smore's" will be on the menu, cooked over what sort of campfire?
"Day of Rage" is a borrowed term from the original event planners,1960's domestic terrorists Bernadine Dohrn & Bill Ayers. Close advisers/friends of President Obama over the years, Bill and Bernadine have not yet replied to their RSPV's to this modern version of their event.
Some of the organizers behind this are the SEIU and elements of ACORN. Other than to disrupt capitalism/Wall street, US Day of Rage website is not specific about the purpose of the "Day" other than calling for "integrity" to be "restored to our elections."...Uh I thought ACORN had already taken care of that? They also accuse corporations of using "money to act as the voices of millions, while individual citizens, the legitimate voters, are silenced and demoralized by the farce." Of course they don't say that they themselves are corporations.
They are advising participants on ways to best practice "civil disobedience", how to resist police arrest and disrupt court hearings.
However this turns out, lets hope it is peaceful. This is America where it is the right of every American citizen to peacefully assemble and protest. But it is not the right of a few to shut down the nations financial system to make their point and New York City, unlike London will not stand idly by if anarchy starts to rule the streets....Especially just a few days after the 10 year anniversary of 9/11.
