Occupy Wall Street is to celebrate its first aniversary, on Monday, with the blessing of the NYPD spokespman, Paul Brown, who said: “We accommodate peaceful protests and make arrests for unlawful activity”.
Few words, but behind the scarce phrase there is this eloquent image: sheeps resignedly flowing on the streets surrounding the temple of the mighty financial wolves.
We have no business with Paul Brown. It is this image that is bothering us. Because, what good is a protest if does not fulfill its ultimate goal, to get those financial gurus by the balls and firmly (ok, maybe a bit painfully) instill to the bearers a higher sense of public responsibility? How unlawful can this be?
Or, to seriosly ask a serious question, how did we allowed this to become unlawful?
