50,000 to Occupy Chicago During G8, NATO Summit in May
Those that fail to learn from the mistakes of the past, are doomed to repeat them.
Forty-three years later the violence and chaos that encompassed the 1968 riots are long forgotten or were never taught in the first place.
Negative elements of the past and that which has been allowed to fester for decades will come together this summer, its end game will be to create chaos and destroy the economy.
Adbusters, the organization that brought the world Occupy Wall Street has placed a cattle call for 50,000 Marxists from across the world to converge upon Occupy Chicago’s G8 and NATO Summit aka G8 Chicago 2012 this coming May.
The goal is to pull off the “biggest multinational occupation of a summit meeting” in history by any means necessary.
“…And this time around we’re not going to put up with the kind of police repression that happened during the Democratic National Convention protests in Chicago, 1968 … nor will we abide by any phony restrictions the City of Chicago may want to impose on our first amendment rights. We’ll go there with our heads held high and assemble for a month-long people’s summit … we’ll march and chant and sing and shout and exercise our right to tell our elected representatives what we want … the constitution will be our guide….”
Yeah right. Why is it that the only time Progressives want to lay claim to the Constitution is when they are taken to task for trampling upon the liberties of others?
“…And when the G8 and NATO meet behind closed doors on May 19, we’ll be ready with our demands: a Robin Hood Tax … a ban on high frequency ‘flash’ trading … a binding climate change accord … a three strikes and you’re out law for corporate criminals … an all out initiative for a nuclear-free Middle East … whatever we decide in our general assemblies and in our global internet brainstorm – we the people will set the agenda for the next few years and demand our leaders carry it out.
And if they don’t listen … if they ignore us and put our demands on the back burner like they’ve done so many times before … then, with Gandhian ferocity, we’ll flashmob the streets, shut down stock exchanges, campuses, corporate headquarters and cities across the globe … we’ll make the price of doing business as usual too much to bear….”
The Marxists (community organizers, anarchists, behind the scene politicians and unions) running this show are now openly preaching violence and economic terrorism.
You can bet that Rahm “Dead fish” Emanuel is not going to be at all happy about this mass convergence upon his city but he will be prepared and it is said preparations that sit uneasy with those setting this potential disaster into place.
Below is an open letter from community and labor organizations dated January 13, 2012 addressed to Chicago’s City Council expressing their so-called concerns over the preparations being setting forth by the City of Chicago for the G8/NATO summit and invasion of anarchists. Take note of the co-signers at the bottom of the letter. They are all the usual suspects.
The measures as proposed by Emanuel were overwhelmingly approved by Chicago’s City Council on January 18. Depending on which side of the fence one sits also depends on how one feels about the measures being put into place by the City of Chicago.
Are the rules too stringent as some claim or is Emanuel kowtowing as Progressives usually do to this movement? Time will tell.
