La folie est de toujours se comporter de la même manière et de s'attendre à un résultat différent. Albert Einstein CMB Arkea/ Michel Madec S’ils te mordent mords-les !
Publié le 11/12/2011 à 03:47 Ils sont une poignée. À savoir qu'on les compte sur les doigts d'une main. Ils, se sont les Indignés agenais qui, chaque samedi après-midi, depuis plusieurs semaines, campent près du porche de la cathédrale Saint-Caprais, côté place Foch à Agen. Gilles est l'un d'eux. Des Indignés qui refusent la société de consommation alors que là, tout à côté d'eux, ce n'est que ça en ce premier samedi dédié aux enfants avec l'arrivée du père Noël.
Occupy Vancouver protesters met in the city's Downtown Eastside on Saturday to talk about the future of the movement. The protest camp disbanded last month, five weeks after the movement began, after failing to establish a new encampment following two evictions. As about 100 demonstrators reunited on Saturday, the discussion included whether they should bring back the encampment. "I hope to see and take the temperature of the crowd and find out what people are thinking about that," said Hugh Stinson, who has been involved in the Occupy movement since the beginning. "There are different strains of thought on that. We have had some offers of land, we have had some land that we have just considered taking.

Only a few miles from Wall Street the devastation of poverty in East New York, Brooklyn , one of the poorest neighborhoods in the state, is ubiquitous; foreclosed signs and vacant houses litter block after block after block. That is why last Tuesday’s National Day of Action, reclaiming abandoned homes for the homeless , marked an important next step in the Occupy Wall Street movement. The 400-person march on foreclosed properties, led by homeless families and neighborhood residents, began just after 1pm and included local community groups like VOCAL-NY , Union Healthcare Workers East , Organizing for Occupation , Picture the Homeless and Take Back The Land .
On Tuesday 7 December, just before representatives from Occupy London were due to meet the FSA’s CEO Hector Sants, the City of London Corporation delivered a set of documents to the legal team representing Occupy London.  These documents were released on the Corporation’s website and it appears that media were also alerted. These documents were the witness statement (dated 6 December) of the Registrar of St Paul’s Cathedral, Nicholas Cottam, together with supporting evidence, all of which Occupy London’s legal team will contest at the High Court in the hearing that begins on 19 December. Present at the FSA meeting were the Bishop of London Rt Rev Dr Richard Chartres, Robert Gordon of St Paul’s Institute and Ken Costa, former Vice-Chairman of UBS Investment Bank and Chairman of Lazard International. Indeed, they had brokered the meeting to bring the FSA and Occupy London together as part of the St Paul’s Initiative.
Birmingham University successfully obtained a high court injunction to ban 'occupation-style' protests. Photograph: Martin Bache/Alamy UK human rights groups have condemned one of Britain's biggest universities for "criminalising" sit-in protests, describing the move as worrying, aggressive and censorious. On Thursday it was reported that Birmingham University had obtained a high court injunction banning all occupation-style protests on its 250-acre campus for one year. The injunction prevents "persons unknown" from staging any "occupational-style protest " for 12 months unless they obtain prior written permission from university management.

Boston est la dernière ville des États-Unis où les autorités ont forcé l'évacuation des indignés, quand, en France, à Marseille, un campement a également été vidé manu militari. Sur le modèle des Indignés de la Puerta del Sol , en mai dernier,ceux de New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphie et San Francisco, regroupés dans le réseau " Occupy ", ont eux aussi été expulsés des espaces publics qu'ils occupaient. Après Wall Street ou Portland récemment, c'est le campement Occupy Boston , au Massachusetts, qui a été démantelé samedi , alors que des policiers ont défait des tentes et arrêté des dizaines de manifestants qui y protestaient depuis dix semaines. Une porte-parole de la police, Elaine Driscoll , a indiqué que des agents avaient commencé à circuler dans le campement aux environs de 5 h, afin de s'assurer que les indignés "respecteraient le règlement municipal sur l'intrusion".
11 December 2011: Luis Moreno-Caballud and Marina Sitrin on connecting the occupy movements and the Spanish May 15th movement We write this letter as participants in the movements, and as an invitation to a conversation about which we write. We hope to raise questions about how we continue to deepen and transform the new social relationships and processes we have begun … to open the discussion towards a common horizon.
Some meandering thoughts as I prepare for the West Coast Port Shutdown tomorrow . . . My husband and I moved to the Bay Area about 15 years ago when our son was starting high school. We wanted to immerse him in what has come to be known as “San Francisco Values.”
