Response to Joe the Revelator (Reply #18)

Thu Aug 23, 2012, 09:47 PM

54. 50,000-100,000 people marched in NYC on Mayday

 

From a huge OWS rally at Union Square. With thousands of people from the unions, the black community, immigrants rights groups, students, economic justice groups, antiwar and anti-imperialist groups, hippies and all the rest. At least twice as many saw us marching down Broadway, with the march at one point extending from behind Houston to past the Woolworth Building. Several thousand people ended up at an open private-public space downtown, on the Hudson. An enormous police action was staged to force them out within a couple of hours.

Not one media truck. Not a single one. Almost no reports. On the shameful NPR, the report was that "hundreds" of protesters "clashed with police."

In small part, this media blackout on the continuing protests and organizing activities exists so as not to antagonize the smug systemic conformity of persons such as yourself.

No move can be made to set up a protest anywhere in this city without police action to evict the protesters.

Meanwhile, the numbers of people organizing all over the country for the long haul is greater than ever.

It's not going to manifest itself on your schedule, and for good reason, for you are no friend to it. It's not going to manifest itself on anyone's schedule. As was the case last year, the system itself by providing its own routine economic and other atrocities is going to constantly organize and regroup its own opposition.
