Thread Name: BS: Wall Street Protesters...
Subject: RE: BS: Wall Street Protesters...
Hmm. Occupy Wall Street was the brainchild of Adbusters, an anti-consumerist magazine based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Last July they declared that on September 17, 2011 they would begin the protest. Adbusters is partly financed by multi-billionaire George Soros' Tides Foundation.
Several labor unions are involved in the OWS protests. One of them is the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). Former SEIU official Stephen Lerner spoke last March about bringing down the stock market and destabilizing the nation... Read it for yourself.
OWS is far from spontaneous and leaderless and unorchestrated and all that. Soros. You don't get much more establishment than that.
