It is a fundamental right of the American people to speak and protest as the please as long as they do now harm to others or their property. The local and state governments are violating the Constitution with their actions.

Ummm, do you comprehend what you wrote?

The occupation of Zuccotti Park harmed privately owned property; denied the rights of others to enjoy and use the park; denied the rights of local businesses owners to make a living; denied the rights of local residents to a quiet, safe and peaceful neighborhood.

The only unconstitutional action that the City of New York did was to deny the rights I listed above for as long as they did.

While I don't agree with every action the movement has taken I have seen it progress and have become more comfortable with how the movement is being conducted. The fact that no one person swooped in and took over the movement as a single leader is a good sign that the movement still seeks to satisfy many needs of the American people. If the movement itself was more organized and more defined it would without a doubt have a lot more support.

OWS brings the important framing of the discussion around common sense solutions to ending the corporatocracy of the 1%.

OWS agenda is to have more debt for future generations so they, today, can have something they are unable to attain on there own. If you want something go earn it.
Isn't this clearly demonstrated within our Asian American cmmunities? They "make things happen". There is a role model for OWS. They call it pride.
