"Capitalism Isn't Working"
How Earl of Locksley Becomes Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest
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."
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.
