Occupy Protests - #3802 - VIDEO: Bunny-Style Hopping? You'll Want to See the Videos of Occupy Training for it's 'May Day' Protest - The Blaze (2) 'The 99% Spring' Launches By Training 100,000 Activists - The Blaze

YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE FOLLOWING VIDEOS TO BELIEVE HOW THEY ARE BEING TRAINED, HOPPING LIKE RABBITS. I WONDER HOW MANY ACTUALLY HAVE A JOB.  THEY ACT LIKE ROBOTS, HOW CAN THEY POSSIBLY THINK THEY ARE MAKING A PROFOUND DIFFERENCE.
Just as professional sports teams hold pre-season training sessions to make sure their players are game-ready, the Occupy Wall Street folks are also holding spring training sessions to prepare their rookies for the movement’s “opening day” on May 1st: the “May Day” protest. The OWS Spring Training camps have been in session for a few weeks now. These classes are held in a couple of locations in lower Manhattan and consist of trained leaders teaching the inexperienced Occupier the basics of the OWS movement. The Zuccotti Park location teaches how to communicate using the “mic check” technique and also educates the faithful in what these folks call “civil disobedience.” This first of these clips (shot for The Atlantic) shows a curious group hug that is triggered by a leader shouting “Love is the answer”: Yes, those people are hopping to the circle where they execute the group hug. (And nowhere is the strange hopping explained.) In this next clip, the facilitator is instructing the protesters on a technique used to avoid arrest called “Civilian.“ When the word ”civilian” is heard, the group is supposed to break apart and start acting like civilians: (According to the teacher, civilians would just walk away, make a cell phone call or “check your Facebook.”)  To watch the videos...........



'The 99% Spring' Launches By Training 100,000 Activists - The Blaze - The “Occupy” movement and its associated “99%” are soon beginning the spring initiative they planned all winter.  “The 99% Spring,” a website dedicated to the endeavor, explains:  This Spring We Rise!  April 9-15 we will gather across America, 100,000 strong, in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets to train ourselves in non-violent action and join together in the work of reclaiming our country. History is calling; it’s time to step up. Rerouting to a MoveOn.org site after clicking on “get involved,“ more details about the ”spring training” emerge: Inspired by Occupy Wall Street and the fight for workers in Madison, Wisconsin, the 99% will rise up this spring. In the span of just one week, from April 9-15, 100,000 people will be trained to tell the story of what happened to our economy, learn the history of non-violent direct action, and use that knowledge to take action on our own campaigns to win change.  Read more.......
