They’re baack! Occupy plotting to flood Wall Street. Tent cities, barricades, calls to resist National Guard, police
The Occupy Wall Street movement is calling for protesters to flood lower Manhattan in September, where they are to set up tents and barricades while resisting any police or National Guard attempt to dispel the crowd, KleinOnline has learned.
“If we hang in there, 20,000-strong, week after week against every police and National Guard effort to expel us from Wall Street, it would be impossible for (President) Obama to ignore us,” reads a call to arms posted on the website of Adbusters Magazine, which has been behind Occupy since the movement’s inception.
“Our government would be forced to choose publicly between the will of the people and the lucre of the corporations,” added the announcement.
After largely breaking for the winter, Occupy is calling for the encampment to begin Sept. 17.
“On September 17, we want to see 20,000 people flood into lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful barricades and occupy Wall Street for a few months,” reads the Adbusters announcement.
“Once there, we shall incessantly repeat one simple demand in a plurality of voices…We demand that Barack Obama ordain a Presidential Commission tasked with ending the influence money has over our representatives in Washington.”
Occupy to target Democratic convention
In January, KleinOnline reported that a coalition of U.S. radical groups, including the Occupy Movement, are preparing protests to start in September, including the targeting of the Democratic National Convention that takes place that month in Charlotte, N.C.
The Occupy movement is likely to escalate months before the Sept. 3-6 event. A slew of extremist organizations, some tied to Obama, are preparing protests to coincide with major NATO and G-8 summits slated for Chicago in May.
Foreshadowing possible violent confrontations, some of the same radical trainers behind the infamous 1999 Seattle riots against the World Trade Organization have been mobilizing new protest efforts geared toward world summits.
The plans for the Democratic convention are posted on a central website, ProtestDNC.org. More than three dozen organizations, including labor, anti-war and so-called civil rights and immigrants rights groups are joining together to initiate a coalition.
The group calls for:
Good jobs for all! Economic justice now – Make the banks and corporations pay for their crisis!
Money for education, health care, housing and all human needs, not for war and incarceration!
Justice for immigrants and all oppressed peoples! Stop the raids and deportations!
The protest coalition is complaining that the city of Charlotte has already denied their requests for permits to march. The city told the coalition that the DNC itself has reserved major parks in Charlotte during the convention.

Lou Buren of TWAU BLOG: I like the way they say they will be setting up peaceful barricades. And that they will be resisting police and the national guard. Anybody else but me see that those things are not peaceful?
The things they are demanding are easily obtainable by getting a good education and making the right choices in life. Things they have apparently chose to not do. We have many articles on the occupy crowd in our archives, feel free to search for them.
It's time for the city/state leaders to dismantle this group of criminals for good. They are becoming quite annoying. And just so it's clear, the occupy idiots are not affiliated with the GOP. And they are not a peaceful group like the Tea Party. The occupy group is made up of young thug like punks and people who have failed in life. And now they want to complain about things.
