OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVES TO AUSTRALIA

IN case you missed it, the protests against corporatism have now moved to Australia, specifically, to Martin Street in Sydney, that country’s version of Wall Street. The following article was sent to me by a member of this website:

“Anti-greed Protestors to Occupy Sydney
“On Friday 14 October 2011, 14:54 EST

“Demonstrators inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement in the US will set up a permanent campsite outside the Reserve Bank in Sydney in an effort to spread their anti-corporate greed message.

“The protest, listed as a public event on Facebook will run from 2:30pm Saturday the 15th of October until 6pm New Years Eve 2011. Similar protests are already running in 190 cities in America, Canada, Britain and now Australia with further protests planned for other Australian cities.

“One of several facebook pages dedicated to the Occupy Sydney demonstration lists the group’s mission statement as follows: (More From Yahoo!7 Finance: The Faces of Occupy Wall Street)

“‘To follow in the footsteps of the revolutionary people in New York City and establish a permanent and peaceful occupation of Martin Place in line with global occupations. To put an end to the destruction of our land and the poisoning of our ground and drinking water for the good of foreign economies. To put the lower, middle and working classes on the same equal footing as the mega wealthy.’

“The Occupy Sydney protest comes as police in New York City prepare to clean out protestors from lower Manhattan following weeks of protesting. During this time, police have arrested more than a thousand people as the movement looks t”o be gaining traction amongst the general American population.

Meanwhile, American investor Warren Buffet has continued to defend his proposal to increase taxes on the super rich. (More From Yahoo!7 Finance: The Richest People In America)

“Buffett reportedly sent a letter to a Republican congressman disclosing that he earned almost $63 million last year, yet paid less than $7 million in federal income tax.

“‘To exclude a few of the super-rich who can contribute US$20 billion extra is a terrible, terrible mistake,’ Buffet said.

“The Berkshire Hathaway Chairman has continued to defend his proposal to increase taxes on the super-rich – the so-called “Buffett Rule” – joking that he always “dreamed of having a tax named after me.” (More From Yahoo!7 Finance: Outrageous CEO Apending Abuses And Perks)”

Given what we stated yesterday in connection with the article by Norman Lamont, a Rothschild eurozone banker, we may be looking at one of two things: (1) a spontaneous protest against central banking, or (2) a movement being globally coordinated by the very banksters via the internet. After all, folks, these people aren’t stupid, and what is a powerful tool for the alternative community is also a powerful tool for them as well. We may thus be looking at a third alternative: (3) a movement that, indeed, is spontaneous and which the Anglo-American elite is attempting to capture and channel to its own purposes.

For the moment, I entertain the latter possibility as being the most likely, for it remains to be seen if these protests can cobble together anything like a coherent analysis of the problem, and anything like a real solution to it: an end to private monopolistic, cartelistic, central banking and monetized debt functioning as money.

  1. Andrew Breitbart speaks of several hundred hacked e-mails that indicate OWS was heavily influenced by socialists, anarchists, and some democrats. I didn’t read the hundreds of e-mails because I have given up on trying to peel the onion layers. I’m not a Breitbart fan. I just scan his site(biggovernment.com) every 2-3 weeks. I probably fall into #(3) in the above options as laid out by Dr. Farrell.

  2. The seeds were planted long ago, by the very organizations that will vehemently oppose them/ while controlling them(counterinsurgency 101). Other groups, ‘spontaneous’, will be multi-targetd by multi-faceted means; again, all being controlled by the same unaccountable center.

    For latest in ‘Occupy Wall Street google: Max Keiser Report 199. In this current show(26 minutes) his analysis is on what Dr. Farrell is expressing, plus the second half of this show analyses digital captitalism(with it’s ‘high frequency’ trading) as evolved ‘into systemic ignorance’. The guest Michael Betancourt breaks down his cuttin/edge digital theory, in relationship to the ‘Occupy Wallstreet Movement’.

  3. Hermes: I weary of seeing/hearing the term “old white men” as the root of all evil. Get a grip. Liberal racists (ageists) are no better than redneck racists. The good, bad, and ugly range all ages and melanin groupings.

    • What is the difference between what “anti-racists” say about Whites and what Hitler said about the Jews?

      Hitler said/Anti-racists say, the Jews or Whites are especially evil.

      Hitler said/Anti-racists say, the Jews or Whites are purely exploiters of others.

      And don’t tell us race is just “Melanin” unless you are making a funny joke. lol

      Anti-racists deny race, but they sure know who is White, when it comes to Demanding massive immigration and forced integration, for all White countries and only White countries and telling everyone to “mix in”.

      Even a child can see that means only White people will disappear.

      They want White Genocide.

  4. From the very gitgo I have said that if Amerikans are concerned about their freedoms that they will stage mass protests consisting of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people AT THE AIRPORTS against the perverts of the TSA who grab your wife’s pussy right in front of you. (While Joseph Farrell might delete this comment for such choice of words, keep in mind that I am only describing everyday life in “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”)

    Yet Americans won’t do this. Instead, whether paid by the high and mighty or because of their own stupidity, which is rampant, Amerikans are taking to the streets to foment bloody Communist revolution following a proven game plan that is over a century old.

  5. It won’t mean anything here in Australia unless the protests target the big miners (our ‘Big Oil’) who had an epileptic fit when the Government had a crack at raising the Mining tax.

    And what happened-the banksters-or in our case the ‘minesters’ threatened everything under the sun.

    Now we have almost no production industry (after having an amazing high quality one), almost no Agricultural industry (after having perhaps the finest in the world) and now we are China’s sand pit!

    Not to mention the monster mining boom we are having-of which only 30% is owned by the Commonwealth.

    Funny how we are in the biggest mining boom on the planet and yet, even with the world’s most highly regulated banking industry-MY POWER BILL HAS INCREASED 150%, MY WATER IS UP 150%, FUEL HAS TRIPLED IN 10 YEARS,

    MINING BOOM MY ARSE

    AND THEY WANT A CARBON TAX THAT TAXES THE BIG MINERS AND THEN COMPENSATES THEM FOR WHAT THEY HAVE TO PAY

    WTF!!!!!!!

    We have a massive short fall in housing-and plenty of empty houses owned by rich Chinese who leave them vacant, drive up the price of houses and then fleece them-to wealthy Indians.

  6. Layers…its all three on many layers. The question you are really asking, which one is dominant. It would seem option 3 is the more powerful layer however looking at their GA demands being scheduled for July 4, 2012…that right there makes me suspect. On top of that – Denninger does a good job ripping up the good/bad in it…

    But there are glaring omissions to my untrained eyes. One – to wait nearly a full year after it starts to hold a national GA seems a bit long in the tooth as if the fruits of this are being planned for not now. I’m not digging that…the other is the total lack of acknowledging the central banks being the main reason for all of this $hit.

    I dont know what people don’t get about their unit of exchange being in the hands of a few dozen old white men…Even China is at their mercy and they know it! The oil sheiks are at their mercy because of their petrodollar agreements! The whole world is tied together through this unit of exchange and we all just want the margins to change?

    No thanks…look at how Wall Street is being tasked for the blame. Sorry its not WS that is to blame…middle men matching buyers and sellers is a very necessary, functional piece of a modern economy. But by placing the blame at their feet, they can be beaten to a pulp which means capitalism will (it already is i realize) get beaten to a pulp, hollowing out our capital formation system that has worked up until recently.

    And the legal system is basically British too boot! The legal system is just as much of a part of this problem as the central bankers!!! So how can we use that in its current form to “fix” this?

    Blaming CORP’s in general is another red herring! This thing seems like they are trying to coopt it, failing at the moment, but they have time (so they think) and nearly unlimited resources…only the human spirit will carry us across this rubicon in unity…lets hope we can all tap into ours and stop any violence that will be cooerced out of people so the thugs can do what they know. Cops dont know how to deal with peace…they are no peace officers…ask my dad, he’s 25 years…and he never understood that term, its marketing…like al rhetoric.

    We need a RESET…I’m doing part…

  7. Let’s see….An amorphous movement embraced and endorsed by both the Communist Party and the Nazi Party. Then there is the Woodstock element–sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Then there are the comments of the participants themselves from the bad acid tripper (who it turns out is trust fund baby), to the incoherent and unintelligible (a la Leno’s man-in-the-street), and those that reflect as many reasons, or should I say feelings as there are participants. It also seems that the meaning is contingent upon the country or city in question. Is Rome comparable to Sydney? Is it like 1968, with hippies in San Francisco, the yippies in Berkeley, and the barricades in Paris? Or is it the Wiemar Republic? I don’t know…but we will know more the weather gets cold…

  8. Well in NYC they are protesting in front of Brown Brothers Harriman (think a Goldman Sachs you’ve barely heard of) and one building to the east of Brown Brothers is the old Chase headquarters from before Chase merged with JP Morgan and then directly north across the street from Chase, and diagonally across an intersection from the east side of Brown Brothers, is the New York Federal Reserve.

    My guess is the third option.
