A letter to "Occupy" movement

Recently I saw movie containing protesters from Occupy movement disabling a port in Oakland, California and I thought "guys are you completely out of your mind?" If you want to occupy something then occupy congress, wall street or another parasitic institution, not a port which gives something useful and tangible (like manufacturing/consumer goods) besides by paralysing a port you interrupt work of 99% who you claim to represent...

You have to understand that corporate media (especially faux newz) will use every opportunity to present you as parasites, idiots, whiners, lazy jobless entitlement sucking people and so on... So think before you protest and affect fat cats not ordinary people (like port workers) with your demonstrations...

Peace

Try saying us, unless you are the 1%.

Korki, the purpose of a general strike is to disrupt the normal goings on of daily life to pull attention to the protest. The port is an excellent venu to strike, because it is importing the goods of our exported jobs. You would have far more affect on what you have to say if you didn't refer to the occupy movement as "you." Give a listen

- Recently I saw movie containing protesters from our Occupy movement disabling a port in Oakland, California and I thought "WE must be completely out of OUR minds?" If WE want to occupy something then occupy congress, wall street or another parasitic institution, not a port which gives something useful and tangible (like manufacturing/consumer goods) besides by paralysing a port WE interrupt work of 99% who WE claim represent...

WE have to understand that corporate media (especially faux newz) will use every opportunity to present US as parasites, idiots, whiners, lazy jobless entitlement sucking people and so on... So think before you (here it is OK to use "you" since you are refering to the actual actors) protest and affect fat cats not ordinary people (like port workers) with your demonstrations...- 

This is WE. Our cause. Port athority workers and long shormen have been dwindling in pay and union representation. Dock workers have seen their pensions slashed, workers replaced with part time, non-perminent employees and the ports sold to foreign owners. We want dignity, we want the ability to retire someday, we want to be able  to pay for our kids to go to college... Occupy, bring on the general strike we are in solidarity with you..
