Occupy London: Tank-Driving Protesters Want To Put “1% On Trial”

Dr. Michael LaitmanIn the News (from The Huffington Post): “Occupy London protesters have driven a small tank to a former magistrates court where they intend to hold mock ‘trials’ of bankers and corporations accused of financial greed.

“Occupy plans to use the court for a series of mock trials of bankers and other figures it considers to be part of the ‘1%’ responsible for the financial crisis.

“A spokesperson for Occupy London told The Huffington Post UK that qualified solicitors will conduct the trials, and that anyone accused will be invited to defend themselves.

“A list of people and companies to be tried in the courts will be released soon, the movement said.

“‘These trials will be about economic crime, about companies that have not paid their taxes or people who have made profit out of the recession,’ said Spyro, a spokesperson for the organisation.

“‘We need to see justice,’ he said. ‘Our court will be a symbolic peoples court.’

“The movement said that the building was chosen because it was a highly ornate, visible and expensive development that had been abandoned for many years.

“‘We want to give back to the public,’ Spyro said. He added that Occupy was not concerned that its message would be diluted by PR stunts, and argued that ‘PR is a good thing.’

“The organisation also rejected the criticisms on Twitter and other social networks that the ‘prosecution’ of the 1% could have an unpleasant resemblance to ‘show trials.’

“‘Ours in an open movement,’ the spokesperson said. He added that the public would be welcome to watch the trials.”

My Comment: The rich should be afraid, and that’s why it’s in their interest to introduce integral upbringing for society so that it can understand that our egoism is the cause of what has happened, and now we all must get out of it. We need to rise above it in unity, abundance, reasonable consumption, and the realization of the higher level of nature. “The Phantom of Gaddafi” is flying over them, and as soon as the masses are jobless and hungry, it can descend upon them….
