mind yourself and good luck
Pops in from where I am thousands of miles away south of Cuba to say well done all
Hello again! Hope you're well!
I've got some friends who are at the protest so I'll hopefully putting up a blog post soon.
Good luck to everyone there Trying to keep a low profile at the moment re: getting arrested and smacked round the head with a truncheon, but I'll be getting involved soon I hope
yes but still no evidence for scuffles aside from your own word, which i am not disposed to trust.
Show me this posts/thread (or clue what to search for) & explicit call from organisers pls. Can't answer til I know what u know. thax
As it happens I am both poor and real. It's an awkward issue of course, but a real one as I was speaking to someone directly affected 2 days ago. Any successful occ will, as a bi product, probably end up doing an unpaid social services function. Speaking to the issue would be more helpful than smarty pants sarcasm.
Erm... Why has the #occupylsx hashtag dissapeared from trends on Twitter?
Well, there's the OP in this very thread for starters. An op which presumably you read as you managed to 'like' it.
This sort of thing is not acceptable.
Thanx for pointing it out - I'd missed that originally and expect others did too
#occupywallstreet didn't 'trend' in the US either
Some photos from the protest:
The strange thing is that it's trending worldwide, but isn't trending in the UK. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but......
I checked on the linked facebook group, and there's no mention of 'troofers' on their call to protest from the info page.
So then I checked on the linked website, and again, no mention of 'troofers' in their call to join the worldwide throng of OCCUPYers.
It's there in the opening post though:
It's all over the web. Eg, indymedia.
Yeah. Pity that's in the OP - what's written by the actual organisers is far more inclusive.
The 'official' blurb says:
Is it possible to change the OP to reflect the OCCUPY call, rather than some mangled blurb that google-matches U75 to 911trutherIckeatemyZOGhamster websites?
What, they only said one single thing over the last few weeks did they? Clearly, and this thread is evidence of it, they didn't.
And as part of localised (i.e. U75) protest against troofer dufus types associating with the OCCUPY movement, then the OP can be changed to reflect the actual OCCUPY blurb as it stands today.
The 'truthers' phrase was posted far and wide all over the web, so I certainly have no inclination to airbrush it out of history.
The Rome protests are turning violent.
Ok. It was posted to about 25 or so mainly fringe locations - not that many in the grand scheme of things
Hardly pointless and not stalinist either to suggest a change of OP to the non-troofer one(s).
I unliked the OP when told it contained a call to troofers.
There are other announcements elsewhere on the web which don't have troofer blurb in, so I *like* those instead.
But you still want to change history? It's not all about what you 'like' -it's about an accurate record of what happened.
No, I don't want to change history. You pointed it out. You complained about my response to your pointing it out. Basically, no matter how I respond to you, you won't be satisfied, so get off my back, mack.
All it says to me is where the OP gets their information from. Don't make a big deal out of it. It's not about me. I didn't start the thread, and if I had, it wouldn't have had any troofer blurb in it - I'd have used the non-troofer blurb.
Woo hoo! http://twitter.com/#!/search/#OccupyLSX is now trending
