P1n3apqlExpr3ss:MikeSkyrme: On another note, I see that there is a protest planned in Auckland today, in Aotea Square..? Will be interesting to see what happens when they all need to visit the little room...
Thought they were just camping up at Aotea for as long as it takes for them to get recognised? Saw them massing by Britomart on saturday and the ones i took notice of just seem like bored university students or hippies
As for the 99% vs 1% debate, we voted half of them into parliament in this democracy, you're not going to find a 4.4 million person government any time soon. Plus you have the referendum this November, no idea if that would change anything. Oh and the other half we can avoid by not buying their goods and services, dont like the corporate greed of say... Apple? Dont buy their stuff and encourage others not too, simple as that.
Most of these people are young? Theyre meant to be the entrepreneurs and not the protesters, leave that to Minto and his loony crew
Ok, I am not sure how long they plan to be there, I broke one of my own rules and used information supplied by the NZ HErald which stated they planned to stay camped out for 6 weeks.
I must confess, I have read your second paragraph a few times now and really do not understand what you are saying... My point was that the protesters should not claim they represent 99% of the population, as they clearly do not.
I agree with your last comment, these people should be the entrepreneurs.
The whole protest (IMHO) really comes across as a case of the 'have nots' complaining about the 'haves'.
