    Our leaders make campaign promises never kept. The problem goes beyond the parties and politicians, it's the system. All our politicians are in the pocket of a few elite who own, lobby, litigate, bully and bribe their way into every element of our lives. From what banks have done to the people of the US, to Monsanto's destruction and making us ill with no labeling required, to the big oil companies with private profits and public liability. 20 years of litigation was the answer to First Nations dieing downstream from the tar-sands. Average earner salary has dropped while the 1% has made 300% profits in the last 10 years. Our public servants serve these Corps. with bias data, subsidies and bias media. It's profit for very few, to the huge detriment of every aspects of all our lives. After 9 "secret meetings", presently our Harper Gov. wants to sell our water, energy, education, health, food, public services etc... with "CETA". Our current monetary systems are broken with virtual bank money being paid back with real money and real interest by real people. Over 1500 cities worldwide are in "Occupation" to bring to light these issues and demand better of the "system" and "leaders". From what I gather. ;^) David Suzuki speaks at Occupy Vancouver with Details to substantiate the atrocities subjected by the 99% by the 1%. The description won't allow for all the links to support documents, so I added them to the end of this video as well as my blog: http://kim-hunter.blogspot.com/ Equality, Justice, Peace

      This is a video compilation made of Occupy San Diego on the evening of Friday, October 28, 2011. Local labor unions came out to show their support for the movement and to give voice to many of the Occupy Wall Street concerns. Disclaimer: The opinions expressed in this video are the opinions of the speakers. While I agree with much of what is being said, I do not personally agree with making personal insults to individual 1%-ers in our community. I believe that through respectful dialogue we can get our message across in a way that most people, especially those in the 1%, can understand.

            our mayor bloomberg has been predicting that the wall street demonstrators would leave as soon as the weather got cold. well, it did. it was a freak of nature for there to be snow on october 30. it was freezing cold and my hands and face became numb. the demonstrators didn't go anywhere. they stood their ground and in a sense it was somewhat heroic. the noises that you hear on the soundtrack are the snow, the rain and the wind.
