Adbusters tries one more time but does anyone actually care?
Adbusters has announced another Occupy action. Based off the effort in Spain to surround the Congress there, they are trying, one more time to get folks to DC to protest.
Alright occupiers, trick or treat,
Let’s all go to Washington, DC, and have a Halloween night party!
Let’s celebrate the wonderful Coke/Pepsi presidential election now in progress … and the honest, feisty way our elected reps in Congress have conducted our nation’s business … pay tribute to the bold visions they’ve put forward.
At dusk on October 31, let’s gather on Capitol Hill, trick or treat Congress and party like we’ve never partied before.
PS And if you cannot make it to DC then party in front of the Bank of America in your community… outside your city hall… or in the squares.
Of course, their efforts to have “a million on the mall” turned out to be no more than a thousand, and the efforts for NATO in Chicago were dismal at best. The left has actually had more people out for things like the G20 even before Occupy started.
Of course, wearing a mask around the capitol is going to go over so well. Not.
So after you have another few hundred people out, yelling blocking traffic and getting arrested one more time, then what? Ah, let’s have a Christmas action!
Seems like some are getting the futility of all this from the comments to the Adbusters’ announcement. When you try to harness anarchistic tendencies, sometimes you may find, well, they don’t like the pointless organization.
-Please, please, PLEASE stop calling for actions that you have no intention on doing any work for in cities that you do not live in. It’s really annoying when REAL activists who do REAL work have to put up with planning these idiotic convergences with a month’s notice because Adbusters says so. We will not be planning anything around this stupid call to action. Let everyone know that they are not welcomed to come trash our city for your stupid publicity stunts.
