Austerity Nut rides the New York City subways preaching the virtues of budget cuts, and the need for working-class sacrifice for the sake of our suffering brothers and sisters on Wall Street. He reminds riders, “Ask not what the billionaires in your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country’s billionaires.”
Wall Street Tsunami: #OWS grows in force
“Say: ’ They Don’t Know Why They’re Protesting!”
It’s funny how we use the most the most creative elements of our humanity to develop destructive and inhumane treatments of others, that we utilize our Godness to cast judgement on others when our Father the Creator has taught us to love.
I know that it’s rare for a positive thought, a selfless emotion, or collective ideal is promoted but I believe someone somewhere that you know needs to hear this. They need to know that our world is not ending but transitioning beholding the passing away of negativity, dissent, hopeless, and turmoil, it is only in these spaces, spaces in which the soil of the soul has been disturbed that it is primed to begin tilling thoughts of truth, plowing through propaganda disposing the obstructions we were told were valuable. We must replace these lifeless stumps with seeds of life, growth, and oneness. We are all descendants of the most high. Only then can we begin irrigating our spirits with the nourishment and purity of the divine deep within the wells of hearts. And when this is accomplished we reclaim our place in the garden of Eden as the trees of life we were created to be. As we reconnect with Life, Love, and God.
This video you should know about. In no way is this acceptable. Shame on the damn NYPD. Such scum.
this is what happens when a bank buys out a police force
Citibank Customers Locked Inside and Arrested for Trying to Close Their Accounts
Note: The woman outside, whom the police decided to arrest also because she had just been inside the bank, wasn’t even a fucking protester.
So apparently, it’s legal for a bank to lock its customers inside against their will until the police get there, and also legal for policemen to force people standing OUTSIDE back inside to then arrest them for “trespassing.” Oh. Good to know.
Seriously, fuck everything about this. Words do not even come close to my rage. As quoted on the video by YouTube user Klank123, “I don’t think the police could be anymore useless in this country if they tried.”
If you’re a member of a large bank and would like to take a pretty simple step in efforts to put an end to this bullshit, there’s the Move Your Money Project, which is (straight from the website) “a nonprofit campaign that encourages individuals and institutions to divest from the nation’s largest Wall Street banks and move to local financial institutions. Little has changed to prevent another financial crisis or to end ‘Too Big To Fail,’ and with Congress unwilling to act, we are encouraging individuals to take power into their own hands by voting with their dollars and no longer contributing to a financial system that has led our country astray. We are a campaign that gives people real, concrete actions they can take to create a more sane, stable and localized banking system.”
It’s a great way to actively protest, especially if you are not able to occupy anywhere, and you’ll be helping yourself in the long run because with credit unions and regional banks, you’ll get better service and will save yourself from monthly fees and everything else that comes along with banks like Shittibank here. It’s at least worth looking into. Just please be very careful and leery with regional banks. Some of them are owned by corporate banks and could prove to be a pointless change if you don’t do your homework and research. Credit unions will always be your safest option.
