dvtv live broadcast 11.03.11: RESISTANCE
Michael Bloomberg - America's twelfth-richest man -- blames congress for the financial collapse and claims that the protesters have chosen a totally inappropriate target in wall street - as if the banks were ever forced to do anything. The banks rushed into a loan market because of greed -- plain and simple. Congress merely laid the groundwork; besides mister mayor -- you know damn well that there is a mechanism to hold congress accountable -- it's called an election. You might remember your last one -- you stole it.
As the occupy movements fight colder weather and police harassment and violence -- they are also fighting elements within their own. Violent demonstrators willing to provoke police and destroy property provide an excuse for authorities to attack a demonstration. Up till now the American public largely supports the aims of the demonstrators -- and largely supports the non-violent movement. Many in power who wish to see the movement fail know all-too-well: images of masked or helmeted youths throwing Molotov Cocktails or smashing storefronts on American television screens would derail the movement in a media minute.
