The activist group behind the Occupy Wall Street protest nine years ago, Adbusters, is planning a 50-day “White House Siege” next month.
“Drawing wind from #MeToo, #BLM, #ExtinctionRebellion and protests against Trump’s lethal bungling of coronavirus, we’ll inspire a global movement of systemic change — a Global Spring — a cultural heave towards a new world order, the activists say in a “Tactical Briefing” posted by Adbusters magazine.
The Adbusters Media Foundation is a Canadian-based anti-capitalist, enviromentalist group founded in 1989. Adbusters prompted the “occupation” of Wall Street in 2011 saying that had “one simple demand — a presidential commission to separate money from politics” that would “start setting the agenda for a new America.”
The activists say the launch date of the “seige,” Sept. 17, is the Occupy anniversary, making it “the perfect day to trigger another global big-bang moment — a massive collective action of the sweetest kind of disobedience.”
They complain that in the nine years since Occupy Wall Street — more than five of which were under Democratic President Barack Obama — “the shadows have only grown longer.” (Read more from “Unnerving: ‘Occupy’ Radicals Now Plan ‘White House Siege'” HERE)
