#occupywallstreet

"…CLGC’s memo proposes that the ABA pay CLGC $850,000 to conduct “opposition research” on Occupy Wall Street in order to construct “negative narratives” about the protests and allied politicians. The memo also asserts that Democratic victories in 2012 would be detrimental for Wall Street and targets specific races in which it says Wall Street would benefit by electing Republicans instead…"

This needs to be seen so we can be prepared.

From an Email apparently going around:

“As you all may have seen over the last number of years and particularly the last number of weeks. The seditious left is attempting to strike at the heart of Capitalism itself - Wall Street!
"We can no longer stand idly by, while these Leftist radicals attempt to collapse our free market system.
"Using the left’s own playbook - Rules For Radicals, we will "Infiltrate and Humiliate" the Marxist hoards. We will NOT reveal ourselves, We will NOT have a website, We will not have any visible leaders. Our goal is to humiliate and embarrass. We will sow the seeds of paranoia and doubt among the left. We will expose them for the fools they are.
"Our plan is simple : Infiltrate and Humiliate.
"If you are with us, please respond.
"For God and The Republic”

Reeks of astroturfing, really. Here is some information on “protest warrior,” a group dedicated to distrupting peaceful protests on behalf of war mongers and oligarchs.

For those who cannot make it

domestic-terrorism:

Send a letter to the NYPD expressing your solidarity with the protesters and urging the police to exercise restraint. Also, tell them the world is watching. And thank them for all their hard work.

Imagine what affect it would have if the police got 100,000,000 letters of support for the protesters. Edit. x2 It’d be hard for the media to dismiss all the protesters as wackos and hooligans with that outpouring of public support.

It goes without saying, but don’t be a douche. Don’t send anything offensive or dangerous.

Do it. It takes 5 minutes.

(that’s where the bull statue is)

Labor Day Twitter Bomb

occupywallstreet:

On Labor day tweet @KeithOlbermann @TMorello @MMFlint @CornellWest @DylanRatigan

Tweet @ each of them individually tagged #occupywallst

Ask them for their help and support, basically for their voice. Be interesting, funny, and/or persuasive, stroke egos.

“End American plutocracy. Sept 17th #occupywallst. Lend us your voice Mike. @MMFlint

“This is the last Labor Day we celebrate in bad faith. #occupywallst needs your voice @KeithOlbermann”

If you don’t have a twitter, get one (or two actually) and do this, Between them, they have millions of followers, viewers, active supporters, and fans. Tweets seem stupid I know, but if they mean a few hundred or a few thousand more attendees, they could bring us to critical mass; we can begin the end of corporate rule-by-wealth. Time is becoming crucial. Please do this.
