Minimale opkomst Occupy Nijmegen

De Nijmeegse occupy-beweging heeft vooralsnog weinig aanhangers weten te vinden ondanks het optimisme van de betogers. ‘We hadden niet verwacht dat het nu al zou gebeuren.

FOX News heeft ook zo z’n mening over Occupy Wall Street

Het rechtsconservatieve FOX News heeft het verrassend genoeg niet zo op deze actieclub en laat dat in hun programma’s maar al te duidelijk merken.

How Occupy Wall Street Cost Me My Job

You don't fire someone for potentially iffy cause if you can just lay them off due to budget cutbacks. One is majorly lawyer-uppable and the other mostly isn't. I've managed hiring/firing and this is a no-brainer. Also, if you have a choice as to firing someone for cause over poor job performance as opposed to political controversy, you always go with poor performance, which will be harder to defeat in court. Firing someone for political expression on their own time is the fastest way to lawsuits and bad publicity. 2. Fired NPR host sees "McCarthyism" - Occupy Wall Street.

Egertsrom teaches the basics of "General Assemblies" while facilitating a conversation Wednesday night on the Law School campus.

Nelson. Why We Need Occupy Harvard. I didn’t expect to support Occupy Harvard. While I agree wholeheartedly with the broader Occupy movement’s critique of the financial industry and think the current level of economic inequality in the United States is beyond defense, I had strategic reservations.

I thought the occupiers should have targeted members of Congress with the power to pass legislation benefiting the 99 percent, rather that banks that aren’t going to be persuaded of their own evils anytime soon. Occupiers, I reasoned, should get up in the faces of the people actually holding the cards. But Occupy Harvard is doing just that, by congregating in front of University and Massachusetts Halls, where the people with the power to change course are working. It is easy to dismiss the tent-dwellers on Harvard Yard as dumb hippies with inchoate demands, but as the group’s press release yesterday showed, they know exactly what they are doing.

Just days before the first revelations of hackgate started to emerge, I remarked to a left-wing friend of mine impatient at the failure of the causes we share to gain any wider traction, that it was nearly always “corruption” scandals involving elites rather than the power of reasoned critique which opened up a window for profound and lasting change.

The observation stemmed from the insight of Robert Darnton, and other scholars of revolutionary France, that it was not so much the rational arguments of the Enlightenment philosophes, but the relentless attacks of the libellistes – the French gutter press - on the greed and depravity of Louis XVI and his wife Marie Antoinette, which led to the French populace’s disillusionment with monarchy and ultimately the downfall of the ancien regime. More recently, we saw in Egypt, how the malfeasance of Mubarak’s government, as exposed by Wikileaks and others, played such an important role in spurring on the protesters.
