Occupier: “Anti Capitalists” controlling money and message

Via filmmaker Justin Samuels, interesting interview with Sage, who has been an Occupier since day one with OWS in NY.

Sage confides that money and messages meant for Occupiers are not reaching them. He also states his belief that “OWS is not anti-capitalist” but that the “anti-capitalists” have taken over communicating the message and were cutting off the money and messages.

This follows multiple internal questions and fights with regard to transparency as to finances. Within OWS,  the question of where did the money go seems a continuing question.

    Oh this is too rich…OWS is complaining because their message (?) has been hijacked by anti-capitalists along with their money. I thought they didn’t care about materialistic things!? Wasn’t the whole protest about making corporate America pay for their greed?

    • True, although his point is also a good one. If people are donating money to Occupiers, why is it not actually getting to the people doing the occupation? There has been a lot of infighting about transparency, fraud and “where did the money go?”. This has been going on for weeks and weeks with people not satisfied with the answers as regards the financing. Psst, hey IRS?
