Confused About Why We Are Mad? Occupy Movement Explained in One Minute

30 Oct

Are you confused why we are mad and wondering “What Is All This Rabble About?”

Are you angry we are in public spaces or “in your way” during your daily routine?

Are you a member of the media reporting on the story, and really don’t know for sure what it is we’re fighting for?

Listen to Alan Grayson, former Democrat representative of Florida explain the anger in just over one minute.

    Good morning anonymous person,

    Sorry to hear that you have decided to attack our education and employment status as your opening debate points, but let’s address them anyways.

    Personally, for one, I have a job. A full time on, in fact. During my own lunch hour when I could be reading a book, I decide to go to the Plaza and participate in open discussion. As an added benefit, the walk between work and the Plaza gives me a great way to keep fit, too!

    You’re right; we are not in the USA. This is why we have stated we broadly embrace the Occupy Wall Street movement’s efforts, and make clear note that Calgary is a unique place with its own challenges. It is those differences we wish to discuss in specific.

    As for banks not having receiving any government funding, and attacks on supposed “lack of education”:

    Quote: “Through Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the federal government aims to purchase up to $125 billion of insured mortgage pools. This will provide long-term stable funding to lenders and will help them continue lending to Canadian consumers and businesses. ”

    I wish you the best, anonymous person. :) Be well and happy travels!

      Thank goodness we don’t! Otherwise we would be in real trouble instead of seeing it looming on the horizon. Canada still has time.

    Here’s another explanation that’s maybe a touch longer. Again, it’s more directly addressing the U.S. situation, but still applies globally:
