Occupy Wall Street! Another spontaneous protest?


From New York to New Delhi, the rage is being ‘used’ in a new form. Organizers are ‘behaving’ differently.

Activists scuffled with police in London and decried the wealthy in Hong Kong on Saturday as an unprecedented outcry against corporate greed and government cutbacks spread worldwide.

Inspired by America’s “Occupy Wall Street” and Spain’s “Indignants”, people took to the streets in a rolling action targeting 951 cities in 82 countries from Asia to Europe, Africa and the Americas.

It was the biggest show of power yet by a movement born on May 15 when a rally in Madrid’s central Puerta del Sol square sparked a protest that spread internationally.

Anger over unemployment and opposition to the financial elite hung over the protests, which coincided with a Paris meeting of G20 financial powers pre-occupied by the eurozone debt crisis. (via Occupy Wall St protests find echo around the world – Hindustan Times).

Cairo, New Delhi, New York …

A few days ago, we had revelations that Anna’s ‘spontaneous’ movement had elements of choreography by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

Why would people in Hong Kong be bothered by an American Protest? Were London protests really spontaneous?

Spreading doubts

Till it was limited to Wall Street, one was willing to believe that this was a protest movement.

When it ‘spread’ across the US, doubts also spread.

Now that it has spread across the world, there is no doubt in my mind. This is choreographed.

Soon, we will see, the Anna movement without RSS?

What then, Anna?

    anurag.. whether its spontaneous or organised from background, what do you feel about these protest? is it destined for good or bad?

    In my view, this is a silent ideological battle, with organisers in the background.. probably a part of the wikileaks drama??

    I think these protests are good in a small way.
    They are stopping the Government from becoming too arrogant or comfortable.

    The ideology behind Wikileaks, Anna-Baba, Jasmine Revolution is simple. My clothes are now smelling and dirty. I gotta change.

    The appearance changes. The ‘beast’ inside the clothes is still the same.

    No change there.

    so you mean, the system is same, only laws change.. am i right? and the solution is discarding existing corporatised system?

    And everybody is copying the same laws.

    So, when Australia wants a new law, they study American, British, Canadian, New Zealand law – tweak it, and pass that law.

    When the French want to do that, they study, American, German, Swiss, laws – tweak it and pass it on.
