    I saw Dragon allude to that date, and I could swear there was a thread about it but I did an advanced search and cannot find it. If it doesn't exist, can somebody in the know tell me what's expected?

    The ECB meeting is on December 9th. If the bankers don't get their way, the OWS will have defeated all the multi-national banks by December 10th.

    How will OWS be directly at the front of the defeat of a bank ?

    Clue #1

    Clue #2

    Clue #3 - Today Central Banks around the world are pumping liquidity into the banking system (printing money) in order to prevent the failure of large multi-national banks (mainly Bank of America) before the December 9th EU/ECB meeting.

    Follow discussion in The € EURO thread for more info.

    So, as proof that OWS affected banks, you link to an article explaining how all kinds of stuff affected banks, which doesn't mention OWS.

    THAT is your idea of proof? :rofl:

    12/10 is laid on for a number of demonstrations on 12/10, and in fact for action all through the month of December.

    Here's probably the most ambitious undertaking: Support Grows for Occupy Movement's Coordinated West Coast Port Shutdown on December 12th : Indybay This is intended to be a shut-down-the-ports strike all along the West Coast. It was originally called by Occupy Oakland, but has been picked up by the movement in San Francisco, LA, and Seattle as well.

    December 10 was set up as a Global Day of Action calling for multiple demonstrations in many places. Here's the statement from Occupy Together: Call for an Alternative Day of Action on Human Rights Day Saturday, December 10th, 2011 | Occupy Together

    The point is that this movement is very much alive. The eviction of the tent encampments is not going to stop it. It will simply speed up the move into different tactics, which IMO was due anyway.

    That is an absolutely horrid video. The OWS should be guarding all those small business store fronts instead of driving away their business, destroying them & burning them. Your enemy are the multi-national bankers, hedge funds, insurance companies & government officials. They live & work in penthouses, sub-burbs, Long Island & in DC.

    - Edward M. Liddy - Goldman Sachs & A.I.G.
    - Robert Rubin - US Treasury Secretary & Goldman Sachs
    - Tim Geithner - US Treasury Secretary & Goldman Sachs
    - Hank Paulson - US Treasury Secretary & Goldman Sachs
    - Dan Jester - Goldman Sachs, Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac
    - Neel T. Kashkari - Goldman, PIMCO & Treasury Secretary Assistant on TARP Bailout.

    - Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme
    - Jimmy Carter - started the CRA
    - Money laundering UBS-AG Swiss bank
    - Marion and Herb Sandler invent Wells Fargo option ARM
    - Kathleen Corbet S&P AAA ratings
    - Lew Ranieri coined MBS securitization
    - Hedge funds & John Devaney
    - Joe Cassano of A.I.G.
    - Fred Goodwin of Royal Bank of Scotland

    December 10th, What To Expect:

    - Scruffy beards
    - Worthless college degrees
    - Bad hygiene
    - Bad music
    - Hacky sacks and skateboards
    - Random yelling
    - Drugs
    - Rape
    - Shitting on cop cars
    - Provoking cops


    But outside the smelly hordes of people gathered in isolated areas, nothing out of the ordinary day.

    Oh, noes. What was I thinking. I posted that video because I really hoped the looters would go after the small businesses. And I certainly didn't listen to the words, ...

    Seriously, dude. When you start assuming people are that dumb, you deserve whatever ridicule and scorn come back at you.

    It's a good video. It's a good song that perfectly fits the movement. When people get angry, the riots happen where they live. That's just the way it is. The song isn't advocating, it's reflecting.
