Some Occupy Wall Street Links—General Strike Called In Oakland

University of Oregon professor Gordon Lafer writes in The Nation how Occupy Wall Street is not looking to Washington for solutions. Our p[olitcal system is so corrupt with money that people are begining to see that they will have to take personal responsibility for addressing the problems.

Occupy Oakland is preparing for a November 2 general strike in Oakland to respond to police violence against Occupy demonstrators in that city. Oakland is where Marine veteran Scott Olsen was attacked and seriously wounded by police.

In Des Moines last week, Occupy Iowa protestors marched to the Obama Iowa headquarters to protest the President’s policies on the economy and immigration. Anybody who thinks that Occupy is a recruiting station for the Obama 2012 campaign is going to be disappointed.

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich writes that public opinion is shifting towards the views of Occupy Wall Street on issues such as distribution of wealth and additional taxes for the most wealthy.

England’s The Guardian newspaper has been giving extensive coverage to Occupy efforts across the globe.

Here is the Occupy Wall Street website.

Please take the time to learn about and consider the Occupy movement.
