Have you seen the new mini-documentary, "Nobody Can Predict the Moment of Revolution," highlighting the Days of Rage protests and delving into the reasons why people continue to "occupy" Wall Street? Allow me to recap.
The video, which was created by Iva Radivojevic and appears to praise the leftist protest, starts with a voiceover that rails against American actions, both domestically and abroad:
"I see corporatism, fascism, crony capitalism. I don't see a free market. I see a police state. I see an American empire. I see 700 military bases in a 135 foreign countries. I see 5,000 dead bodies in Iraq -- a welfare, warfare state which gives out billions of dollars in foreign aid for dictators to build up huge armies. I see, uh, America that's lost its way...Finally, we've risen up."
Following this "uplifting" message, individuals are shown throughout the video, as people, both young and old, who attempt to explain and legitimize the protests.
One young woman says, "It's a model for a new society...it's not a protest in the sense of being against something. It's a way to formulate, um, something new."
Another young main described it as, "A mass awareness. A mass realization...an awakening of the masses, to the, to the, to the...obstruction of justice that has been a part of our lives for too long now."
Confused? We don't blame you. Below, watch the full video for more:
Also, there's a new online space for the "Occupy Wall Street" movement -- OccupyTogether.org. This web site, which is apparently intended to aggregate all of the protest content, describes itself as follows:
Welcome to OCCUPY TOGETHER, a hub for all of the events springing up across the country in solidarity with Occupy Wall St. As we have followed the news on facebook, twitter, and the various live feeds across the internet, we felt compelled to build a site that would help spread the word as more protests organize across the country. We hope to provide people with information about events that are organizing, ongoing, and building across the U.S. as we, the 99%, take action against the greed and corruption of the 1%.
In what proponents are dubbing "a leaderless resistance movement," Americans who are angry with Wall Street continue to "occupy" downtown Manhattan. We'll leave you with another (borderline creepy) protest video:
