In the News (From BBC News): “Several hundred people took part in Saturday’s march, which was intended to draw attention to ‘corporate greed and corrupt politics’ in the US.
“Participants carried banners supporting a range of other issues, including healthcare reform, an end to US wars and the scrapping of the death penalty.
“The march came after a week of protests by the Occupy Wall Street campaign.
“Protesters, who are mostly young, initially numbered some 1,500 but their numbers had fallen to about 200 by Saturday’s march.
“There was a heavy security presence in the district, with police deploying nets to block off major roads including Fifth Avenue and to protect the New York Stock Exchange.
“Police said most of Saturday’s arrests were for disorderly conduct and blocking traffic, but one person was charged with assaulting a police officer. One officer also suffered a shoulder injury, said police.
“They have not commented on protest organisers’ comments that there had been an ‘unprecedented level of police aggression’ on display.
“‘Our nation, our species and our world are in crisis. The US has an important role to play in the solution, but we can no longer afford to let corporate greed and corrupt politics set the policies if [0f] our nation.’
“Inspired by urban occupations in cities including Madrid, Cairo and Tunisia, they have said they will camp out in Zuccotti Park, a private park near the financial district, until their demands are met.”
My Comment: This is still neither the feeling of crisis nor an anti-crisis protest, like in Israel, but merely students’ freedom games. But when the feeling of cold, hunger, and darkness will overwhelm people, then true unrest will begin. We can prevent all this if we try. People should learn about the higher plan of nature, evolution: to bring the entire humanity to the society of mutual guarantee, unity between themselves and nature, like in a single organism. All our efforts should be aimed at the execution of this plan.
