Occupy Newark takes to the Streets

Posted on November 20th, 2011 | by A Worker |

Mike Bloomberg’s storm troopers marched into Liberty Square and destroyed the tents, the kitchen and even the people’s library, but they could not destroy the the Occupy movement.  Sorry Mike all those billion$$$ and all you did was make people more determined.  It’s like Mao Tse Tung said, “To be attacked by the enemy is a good thing, not a bad thing.”  And the Occupy movement grows.

#OccupyNewark  is established in Military Park and now building a base for resistance against the one percent’s plan to construct a world economy based on a model that will mean opulence for the few and austerity for the many.

#OccupyNewark is uniting the working class across all the phoney divisions that the one percent create — generation, race, gender,students, workers.  Billionaire Mike has stirred the sleeping giant.

Unity is a Winning Strategy

The movement in Newark is small but growing.  On Saturday about 50 people gathered at Military Park.  Many of them marched down to City Hall to a hold a brief but spirited rally on the steps.

March to City Hall

Folks shopping on Broad Street responded well to the impromptu action.  Many raised their fists in support, some looked a bit bewildered, a few were negative.  But #OccupyNewark and the Occupy movement is changing the the conversation in the US.  People are now talking about class and wealth distribution instead of how they will survive unemployment and the cuts in education and social services proposed by both major political parties.  The Occupy movement is bringing hope that a better world is possible.  And that’s why 99% are listening.
