Don’t understand what the movement is about? Turn off the TV, put down the newspaper, get online, and do some research.
The mainstream media isn’t going to tell you what this is really all about. Their main objective is to make the occupy movement look like a disorganized freakshow.
If you look a bit deeper, you may realize that you actually already support this movement.. you just didn’t realize it until now, because you’ve been getting your information from unreliable sources.
So, of course you’re ignorant.. of course you’re angry.. of course you hate the movement.. of course you think we’re all a bunch of homeless hippies who want a free ride, a hand out, and are too lazy to get jobs.. I probably would too if I was getting my information from the same sources as you. But I’m none of those things, because I’m informed. I’m also down at my local occupy camp every chance I get, because I believe in this movement.. and I’ve seen first hand, the kind of people who are involved. Most of the campers down there go to work and school in the morning after freezing their asses off all night in temperatures below zero.
I invite you to go get informed too. And then when you are, I invite you to join us.
