林教头是怎样被逼上梁山的

Rebel leader Thorin Cristo explains why GreenWood Heroes want to flee to Water Margin:

"We are here because we know the time is running out, not only for Americans but for the entire world population."

guardian.co.uk:

The protest has morphed into a wide-ranging anti-capitalist demonstration that has attracted attention – and support – from around the world

Casey O'Neill had no regrets. He had travelled thousands of miles across the country – and gave up a well-paying job as a data manager in California – to sleep rough in a downtown Manhattan public square, enduring rain and increasingly chilly nights. Police keep a close eye on him every day.

he protest has attracted wide support and has a sophisticated social media operation. There is a live feed onto the internet and a huge presence on Twitter. Supporters around the world have even been sending in orders to a local pizza shop to keep the protesters fed. So much so, in fact, that some organisers have asked them to stop ordering pizza as they had more than they could eat. Now most help comes in the form of money or – most importantly – more people coming.

ne thing many of the protesters do know is their facts and figures. For every hippy talking about world peace or traveller wanting to heal the world, another will mention the exact tax rates that rich Americans pay, or that 20% of the US population now control 84% of the wealth. Or that the richest 400 families have the same net worth as the bottom 50% of the entire nation.

开熙.欧内尔离开了加州的一份报酬优厚的数据管理员工作,从几千英里之外赶到曼哈顿,风餐露宿于公共广场,忍受着秋雨和越来越冷的寒晚,以及警察一刻都不放松的监视。但他一点都不后悔。

一个多星期来,抗议活动已经发展成一场大规模的反资本主义示威运动,并引起了全球性的关注与支持。

每天都有大量分布于世界各地的支持者通过网上或电话订购将比萨饼送到抗议者的手中,以致抗议运动组织者不得不呼吁停止订购以免浪费。现在,更多的人以现金形式资助运动,另有一些人干脆亲自跑去加入抗议大军。

参与抗议的人都非常了解这样一个冷酷的现实,那就是美国富人到底交了多少税。据统计,美国最富有的400个家庭的财富净值相当于整个美国中下层50%的人所拥有财产的总和。
