About 80 people have been arrested as demonstrators who were camped out near the New York Stock Exchange marched through lower Manhattan.
The "Occupy Wall Street" protest is entering its second week. Demonstrators said Saturday that they are protesting bank bailouts, the mortgage crisis and the U.S. state of Georgia's execution of Troy Davis.

What does capital punishment have to do with protesting the financial industry???
Why did the capital punishment protesters make Troy Davis a cause celebre, but ignored the execution the very same day of the guy who dragged James Byrd behind his truck? The timing presented a doubleheader protest for the death penalty opponents, yet they didn’t even mention the execution of the killer of James Byrd.
Exceedingly violent? LMAO!!!! NYC is not a great place for a protest.
Let these activist commies go protest in Iran and see what real excessive violence is?
The following is from their website:
"Gleeful about the raging riots that held England captive this week, the tweet has gone out to activists and disaffected youth to occupy wall street Sept 17 today. Social Networks FaceBook and Twitter are abuzz with plans for coming anarchy on U.S. soil.
The Days of Rage will continue beyond the occupation of Wall Street with activists being told bring your tent.
The original "Day(s) of Rage"
Days of Rage riots (1969)
The Days of Rage riots in Chicago took place over a 4-day period beginning October 8, 1969, after members of the Weathermen, a militant offshoot of the Students for a Democratic Society, converged on the city to confront police in the streets in response to the trial of the group of anti-Vietnam War activists known as the "Chicago Eight".
Exclusive: Bill Ayers Talks About Election Night in Grant Park
From NBC Chicago, Jan 21, 2009:
Bill Ayers was "overflowing with happiness, relief, love" when he and his wife went to Grant Park with tens of thousands of Chicagoans to celebrate the election of President Barack Obama.
Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, spoke exclusively with NBC Chicago's Dick Johnson about why they joined the Election Night celebration in the park, where 40 years before they helped stage the Days of Rage riots.
The couple said they got last-minute tickets from a friend to be in Grant Park that night.
"I couldn't stop crying a couple of times. I found the exact spot where I was beaten 40 years ago," Ayers said. "But I've never been in a crowd that large that wasn't edged with either anger or drunkenness or gluttony, and it was really an extraordinary feeling."

"The raised fist (also known as the clenched fist) is a salute and logo most often used by left-wing activists, such as: Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."
A common Anarcho-Syndicalist flag.
In the early 20th century, anarcho-syndicalism arose as a distinct school of thought within anarchism. With greater focus on the labour movement than previous forms of anarchism, syndicalism posits radical trade unions as a potential force for revolutionary social change, replacing capitalism and the state with a new society, democratically self-managed by the workers.
Anarcho-syndicalists seek to abolish the wage system and private ownership of the means of production, which they believe lead to class divisions. Important principles include workers' solidarity, direct action (such as general strikes and workplace recuperations), and workers' self-management. This is compatible with other branches of anarchism, and anarcho-syndicalists often subscribe to anarchist communist or collectivist anarchist economic systems. Its advocates propose labour organization as a means to create the foundations of a non-hierarchical anarchist society within the current system and bring about social revolution.

October 24, 2008:
(note the red communist star, and anarcho-syndicalist red and black, on his shirt)
Bill Ayers: "I considered myself partly an anarchist then and I consider myself partly an anarchist now. I mean, I'm as much an anarchist as I am a Marxist which is to say I find a lot of the ideas in anarchism appealing."

Revolutionary ferment in Greece a taste of what is to come for the whole of Europe
protesting bank bailouts, the mortgage crisis and the U.S. state of Georgia’s execution of Troy Davis.
Package deal protest.
How do you protest a crisis?
Why did the capital punishment protesters make Troy Davis a cause celebre, but ignored the execution the very same day of the guy who dragged James Byrd behind his truck? The timing presented a doubleheader protest for the death penalty opponents, yet they didnt even mention the execution of the killer of James Byrd.
I wondered the exact same thing ...
Not a word about Brewer in the national news ... no protests about executing him ... but, he was white and that, by itself, is an executable offense in its own right to some.
Im not a 100% sure, but I think this is the group that had a Facebook poll where the fans decided on what to protest. So they really just wanted to protest something, and voted on the banks. But a few probably still wanted to protest death, as well.
“protesting bank bailouts, the mortgage crisis and the U.S. state of Georgias execution of Troy Davis.”
These communist groups always come to the defense of viscous murderers, cop killers. The more brutal and ruthless their crimes the more the revolutionary commie left loves them. Mumia, ‘Tookie’ Williams, etc.
Holy cow—a veritable horde. 80 idiots get nationwide coverage because they can’t find anything better to do with themselves than hang around Wall Street.
Wish they’d all move to Cuba.
Logic and consistency are not Marxist strong points.
>>These communist groups always come to the defense of viscous murderers
Have done an anti gun control protest near the UN and a pro Iraq liberation rally, both in NYC. If you follow their instructions, the police are quite courteous. Of course, none of us conservatives tried to block the streets or sidewalks or to smash windows.
On an unrelated topic, although I personally agree that the second amendment is your carry permit, I would urge all freepers not authorized to do so to NOT bring a firearm to NYC. The powers that be will cheerfully prosecute you for doing so and the police get extra points for an “illegal gun” arrest.
they all look like scum.
The leftist media is trying to pump the movement, which as you can read above in my previous posts, is a global one.
