June 17th was the the 9 month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Most of the world outside of occupy is not aware of this, as the Main Stream Media (MSM) keeps pounding it into their heads that "Occupy is dead". But this is not the way it looks to many on the ground, as we see what happens day to day, we follow the writings, the live streams, the blogs, and tweets of other occupiers all over the world. Unfortunately most of the world outside Occupy does not follow, or might not even know these things exist. They don't see us on what MSM calls "News" so out of sight, out of mind. There isn't a great amount of media coming out of the occupations, generally because we are really busy with what we are doing, and we always could use more help.
After NATO we had some visitors from Occupy Chicago and Occupy Wall Street join us here in Los Angeles! They need supplies! We need prepackaged non perishables, bottled water, sleeping bags, tents, socks, hygene supplies, ect. We can accept donations at GA, or email me lizsavage.occupyla at gmail.com to find out how you can donate items! Thanks everyone!
Right now we are in the midst of an information war. Mass media ignores us, and only covers what they are told to. Instead of seeing the truth behind the stories, you only see their twisted, PC, version of some kind of alternate reality. During protests the media has always skewed the perspective of the piece based on who is writing it, who is paying for it, and who the target audience is. Journalism is dead, as its all being turned into a production rather than just straight facts.
