Occupy Oakland was supposed to stand for Economic Injustice and to represent the 99% of the population. Why are you then further taxing the 99%? Who’s interest are you really looking out for? If you really cared for us, why aren’t you out there taxing Mountain View or any of the other Silicon Valley cities where the 1% of this country lives? Why doesn’t Occupy Oakland focus on the real situation that’s affecting America – the Economy??? What about coming up with real demands like: demanding Congress to give up their ridiculous pensions and having them purchase their own retirement like the rest of us, or what about their crazy salaries that are coming from OUR tax dollars?? Why is it that all Occupy Oakland cares about is the persistence of the encampement when the encampent has given no real demands to impact/change the economy. All I hear from Occupy Oakland is their gripe about police brutality. Occupy Oakland needs to get with the program and focus on the real issue that OWS was about – the incresingly depressing state of our economy. It’s sad that Occupy Oakland is wasting away their movement. They could have been a real voice for change. Instead, it’s just becoming a hippy camp, that the rest of us are sick and tired of hearing about. I am part of the 99% – if you truly care, stop wasting our tax dollars and do something to actually make a difference. So far Occupy Oakland does not have anything to show that they’ve made any progress to side with us.
