Links to 2 in-depth articles on Occupy Protests

Following are links to two in-depth articles that deal with the most fundamental questions, problems and solutions, and strategy and tactics of the 2011 American Protests (Occupy Protests).  These need to be reviewed and considered for the creation of goals, agenda, strategy, and tactics.   1.  http://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2011/10/16/occupy-wall-street-potentials-and-limitations-of-the-2011-american-protests-by-fazal-rahman-ph-d/   2.  http://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/occupy-wall-street-problems-of-the-dialectics-of-diversity-uniformity-and-unity-by-fazal-rahman-ph-d/ 3346



The anarchists + other individuals that smashed bank windows + tagged Whole Foods delegitimize the entire Occupy Oakland movement + need to be held accountable for their actions.

Letters to our Politicians???

After participating today in the Nov. 2nd General Strike and Occupation of the Plaza in Oakland, I came home and did some research. On September 17th, the start day of the Occupy Wall Street movement, word of Obama’s Tax Plan to tax the rich, hit the news. This plan was to raise taxes on those who make $1 million or more. I searched again and found that the original plan was to raise taxes on those who make $250,000 or more, but Senate Democrats “ditched” that as the definition of … Continued
