The international uprising against Wall Street has made its first definitive statement in Chicago. On October 15, the city was the scene of a big Occupy Wall Street march and rally of 5,000 people, who took to the streets with chants of “People over Profits! Occupy Chicago!”
In a premeditated plan to suppress a peaceful protest of more than 5,000 people, the New York City Police trapped and arrested more than 700 people yesterday in lower Manhattan as they marched from the Occupy Wall Street encampment to Brooklyn.
Imagine if George W. Bush had received a four-year extension to his term of office and he alone had presided over the bailout, the surge of troops in Afghanistan, the deportation of 1 million immigrants, and the bombing of an African country.
