What a wonderful day for a protest. The Occupy Vancouver Wall Street Protest went off without a hitch. Very peaceful. Very well represented.
Guy Faux was even there.
Interesting concerns about the legal liabilities of Corporations.
A lot of references to the Bull of Wall Street.
Even references to castrating the Bull.
A call to abolish the Federal Reserve.
Acorn was present.
A call to Water board Wall street.
An add about George Bush's upcoming visit to Surrey.
There was even a group of people meditating.
Tents are being set up for the occupation.
A stroll down memory lane past the old Vancouver stock Exchange. How ironic. Perhaps the focal point of the entire demonstration. Vancouver no longer has a stock exchange because they couldn't control the corruption. It was full of fake pump and dump stocks.
Cars broke out signs waiting for the march to pass.
Heart warming singers.
A call for money to be spent on housing instead of war.
An inspiring graphic design artist making free souvenir T-shirts. He was just accepting donations for more shirts. He ran out pretty fast but said he'd be there all week. If you bring your own shirt I'm sure he'd silk screen it right there for you. He designed the logo himself.
It says Occupy Vancouver with an open hand and the saying "You can't shake someone's hand with a clenched fist." A lot of calls for peaceful demonstrations and it was very peaceful indeed. A great start to an important message. Oh yeah, the 911 truth movement was well repressed too. Imagine that.
