2011 may quickly be coming to an end, but the Occupy movement said it plans on sticking with its same old strategy on New Years Day in 2012.
KNX 1070′s John Brooks reports organizers announced plans Thursday to crash the Rose Parade in Pasadena.
An organizer from the Los Angeles demonstration has launched the Occupy The Rose Parade website to rally supporters.
The protest will reportedly focus on the role of banks and corporations in the political process as well as the militarization of the parade itself, said organizer Peter Thottam.
Thottam is planning protests at at least three locations along the parade route.
Theres no single location, there are a number of strategic spots that we are scoping out and weve got various ideas, all protected by the First Amendment, said Thottam.
The group expects upwards of 40,000 protesters at the parade a turnout that may be used to make what organizers are calling a human float.
But no matter what happens, Thottam asserted the assembly will be peaceful and law-abiding.
I met with the Rose Parade staff and the Pasadena police department, he said. Everything will be on the up-and-up.
Organizers with the parade have so far declined comment on the planned protest.
"...not quite gonna be the aroma of lilacs and roses"
Perhaps a truckload of manuer...
Initially, the OWSers had the sympathy of a large chunk of the American public.
They’re quickly going to piss off a majority of people with these tactics (this started with Oakland).
I say let them try, it’ll make our jobs easier.
They will defecate and or urinate on the floats.
Shoot to kill, Pasadena Police.
How about the Mexican charros with their roping skills catching & dragging a few of them down the street??? Might be a Pay For View event, then.
Didn’t they do something like this in Animal House?
My first thought as well.
They should occupy the doo-dah parade instead.
I believe that if they try anything at the Rose Parade they will anger the audiences more than the cops. People are going to get tired of their smell. Occupy away!
Good. They will generate votes for Cain—just as the protesters in Chicago in 1968 generated votes for Nixon and Wallace.
“Human Float” = stinky people w ice cream on their head?
Since it takes place in California, the Californians will no doubt shower roses at them.
I for one would love to see this happen.
California is the most beautiful state I have seen. Too bad it has been wasted on leftest nuts.
The real question is:
Is the Ease Coast Rose Parade broadcast too early for popcorn?
More like a ‘Planet of the Occupier Apes’ float.
You hear they are pissing on by-passers now?
These idiots need to occupy a prison cell.
Take a whiff on me, that ain't no rose!
Roll up yer window and hold yer nose
You don't have to look and you don't have to see
'Cause you can feel it in your olfactory
(name that *appropriate* tune)...
My wife and I celebrated our 30th anniversary in June, she always wanted to go to a Rose Parade, so I said let’s do it, we have our seats, plane and hotel reservations.
Any of these knuckleheads disrupt our viewing their face will be disrupted by my knuckles, and I will gladly spend some time in lockup if necessary.
