Cars Circle Central Moscow in Anti-Putin Protest

Thousands of cars flying white ribbons or balloons circled central Moscow on Sunday in a show of protest against Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. More protesters stood along the side of the road waving white ribbons and flags as the vehicles passed, their horns blaring.

Putin is running in a March 4 presidential election to reclaim the post he held from 2000 to 2008. He is expected to win, but is under pressure to show he can win fairly.

The protest movement has been driven by young professionals, cultural figures and other members of the urban middle class, many of them connected through online social networks.

President Assad Denies Ordering Deadly Force:

He’s on an American PR mission denying any involvement with the violent, government backed crack down on public protest that has plagued Syria for the past several months. Sounds kind of desperate.

Occupy protesters wear out welcome in L.A., Philadelphia — Wall Street protesters in Los Angeles defied the mayor’s early Monday deadline to vacate their encampment near City Hall, with about 1,000 flooding into the area as hundreds of tents remained standing as they have for nearly two months.

For Spain’s INDIGNADOS, last Sunday’s election delivered a mandate for struggle and resistance: “They don’t represent us” and “They are all the same,” the slogans of the indignados (the Spanish progenitors of the Occupy movement, who have mobilised hundreds of thousands across the country) are now mainstream.

On election day the indignados got protest-voting trending on Twitter with a three-pronged strategy: to abstain, spoil one’s ballot, or attempt to break out of the bipartisan system by voting for a minority party. Rather than just staying at home, people actively registered disgust at the choices on offer, and the number of spoiled ballots on Sunday was double that of the last election in 2008

    Politicians still don't realise the power of social networking and communications for the younger generations. The party that can use social networking along with Occupy will demonstrate an understanding of the younger generations, an understanding of their problems and of their language, and that party will do well. The question is whether that party will deliver after they do well.

    Very well said. In many countries the recession is real, the anger is real and valid; but no political party seems to have the solutions for the problems. But if they all cleanse themselves of dishonesty and corruption the Occupy movement would have achieved something useful.

Dorian Lynskey has a great blog (http://33revolutionsperminute.wordpress.com/) that complements his book on the history of protest songs, “33 Revolutions Per Minutes”. Among other things, Lynskey offers trenchant observations and coverage of the Occupy WS movement.

As I was reading the blog, I came across a live performance of REM’s Final Straw, a rousing protest song written in response to the war in Iraq. No matter where we stand (or sit) on the political spectrum, let’s hope there’s broad agreement that the act of protesting is fundamental to democracy.

Discussions Discussion Occupy Wall Street” Protests
Jenny Knuthsen, Oct. 30, 2011

Beneath the gleaming skyscrapers that house some of Europe’s most powerful banking institutions, a committed core of protesters have huddled together in a small tent village to vocalize their opposition to what signs posted across their makeshift camp call the “dictatorship of the financial markets.”

Inspired by the demonstrations on Wall Street in New York, thousands of sympathizers have joined the Occupy Frankfurt movement and taken to the streets of Europe’s financial capital to protest growing social inequality in Germany and throughout the 17 member eurozone currency union. They managed to pump up their morale this Saturday night with some great music.

The month-old Occupy Wall Street movement continues to grow, with nearly $300,000 in the bank and participants finding satisfaction in the widening impact they hope will counter the influence on society by those who hold the purse strings of the world’s economies.

The demonstrations worldwide, held on October 15th, have emboldened those camped out at Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park, the epicenter of the movement that began a month ago today. Protests turned violent in Rome - video

Occupy Wall Street protests spread worldwide as activists plan to take over Seoul, South Korea. A group of about 30 civic groups are expected to join in the Occupy Seoul protests against financial inequality by holding a two-day sit in across various parts of the city. It will kick off Saturday afternoon and encompass the financial district Yeouido. OCCUPY THE WORLD!!!
