The Wall Street protests are getting media attention.Â How will you help? What protests are planned for your community?
On Thursday, Oct. 6 there’ll be a large protest in D.C., directed not just at Wall Street corruption but also at the out-of-control militarism and the general corruption and lack of accountability in our nation’s capital.
Here are photos of protests at Westlake Park in Seattle: http://www.seattlepi.com/local/gallery/Wall-Street-protesters-in-Seattle-31216/photo-1643321.php.Â I expect there will be more protests at Westlake.
Injustice is rampant. Let’s hope that the protests are (of course) peaceful and that they lead to constructive change and not to a resurgence of right wing populism or to anarchy.Â Â If the protests encourage President Obama to ride the wave of progressive populism, that may be positive. But it’s also possible that the president will try to co-opt the movement without actually delivering.Â And if the Tea Party benefits from the anger, that could be disastrous.
