Also, Storm Saxon's Gall Bladder linked to this: Three men killed protecting homes/businesses[UPDATE: The 3 were Pakistani]
Twitter has played an important role in this both for and against the riots. I noticed something brewing here:
@USDayofRage The United States of America 1 citizen. 1 dollar. 1 vote. Official hashtag #USDOR #OCCUPYWALLSTREET, #Sept17 Lower Manhattan. Bring your tent. Then #occupyDC #Oct6 http://www.usdayofrage.org
I don't think the above is a Tea Party event, just sayin...
UPDATE: I wondered why I thought Day of Rage sounded familiar, domestic terrorist Billy Ayers' Oct '69 Days of Rage It's the same bs, just another year:
The Days of Rage demonstrations were a series of direct actions taken over a course of three days in October 1969 in Chicago organized by the Weatherman faction of the Students for a Democratic Society. The group planned the October 8–11 event as a "National Action" built around John Jacobs' slogan, "bring the war home." The National Action grew out of a resolution drafted by Jacobs and introduced at the October 1968 SDS National Council meeting in Boulder, Colorado.Maggies Notebook jarred me memory and is a must read
The resolution, titled "The Elections Don't Mean Shit—Vote Where the Power Is—Our Power Is In The Street" and adopted by the council, was prompted by the success of the Democratic National Convention protests in August 1968 and reflected Jacobs' strong advocacy of direct action as a political strategy.
US Uncut/Facebook is part of this group. This is what they posted about the London riots:
"I don't call it a riot... I call it an insurrection of the masses of the people. That is the nature of the historical moment." Bet BBC only broadcast it once - live The revolution will be tweeted, liked, & shared. We the People Win. #epic www.usuncut.org @usuncut #usuncut US UncutThis is the video posted:
Just a friendly FYI of what's brewing in the twitter world.
