Another protest on Wall Street is scheduled for October 5, 2011. Under and Unemployed NYU film students and New York City teachers will once again march across the Brooklyn Bridge. With camera phones drawn like pistols while shooting streaming social media bullets, thousands will shout obscenities at Mayor Bloomberg’s terror-ready police force once again. Hundreds may again be arrested and carted to Central Booking, “the tombs” to face charges of civil disobedience.
A powerful union has filed suit against the city because during a recent protest march, public transit buses were used to cart away handcuffed protestors like the fall harvest.
Corporate controlled, multi-billion dollar media giants report that there has been no “unified voice” to these marches on Wall Street. CNN claims many marchers are angry over immigration and education issues, missing the key theme of the parade, which is simply Wall Street.
Until disobedience is directed toward the two corporations primarily responsible for our current double-dip, ranch flavored, salsa recession, JP Morgan Chase and Bank of America will continue to have the nicest storefronts along all of Wall Street and New York City.
Mayor Bloomberg may once again hide the metal trash cans that line the protest route, but how long will this billionaire be permitted to ride the subway to work, as if this were still the land of the free market?
