This pretty much sums up what the protests are about.

i know thats what it about and i agree, i think its wrong that this is happening

but like its not like the civil right movement, where they demanded and wanted equal rights for blacks and such and then they got it

here i dont know they are trying to get. do they want a check from the top 1% instead? er i dont clearly understand the true demands.

It's a pretty peaceful start to the class warfare debate. Not that the class warfare has to be violent, bu that's what it definitely is.

2nd, a lack of accountability for the government to protect peoples rights over corporations rights.

People know why they are protesting, the banking system is wrong, the economic crisis showed a lot of flaws, people live in poverty and yet the bankers and most wealthy 1% get richer and refuse to share their wealth with the people who need it.
But it's hard to form demands if you don't know how this happened or how to solve it. The banking system is not exactly transparent, and neither is politics or governments making decisions, most people have no idea how the country is run. And the people who run it probably don't know exactly how things work either. And it's not simple, it's all complex and incomprehensible.
And to make it worse, it's not in the interest of politicians or bankers to change anything, they got rich and wealthy because of this system, why should they change it? And because no one knows how it works, it's easy for them to sustain it, because no one knows how they could do a better job.

I think the economy and everything will have to get a lot worse before people start to actually change anything.

i think a clear demand from the protesters should be, well at least one of them, is to "bail us out". so many people are in trouble and on the verge of losing homes and etc etc. If the banks were about to fail and before they did they got bailed out, then a clear message and demand should be to bail out the people of this country. i would love to get bailed out on student loans

I don't think there is enough money in the government to bail us all out. Some structure needs to be changed instead as the economy recovers.

I personally think these protesters are full of crap that want their poor decision bailed out by the taxpayers. I wonder what Matt Bellamy thinks of it all. After all in "Unnatural Selection" he writes "It's time to push this beyond a peaceful protest". Did he really mean it - or was he writing political porn?

Occupy St Pauls is still well underway in London, although now it's just squatting really. Can't say I agree with the protests really either. "Oh bankers get paid far too much, they should give money to the poor". Well, some do. If they don't, then tough titties - it's their money. Whether they want to believe it or not, the life of the ones who are getting these millions isn't exactly easy. They've had to work extremely hard to get where they are, and continue to work that hard to maintain it. It's a massively high pressure environment, and the money they are paid reflects that. Perhaps it is excessive, but I wouldn't say by much. Sure there are some professions who work extremely hard and don't get those rewards, but hey, it's an unfair world.

Occupy Wall Street has still failed to gather any sort of leadership. I feel bad admitting this, but the tea party was able to reach a higher level of organization, clarity, and semi- level headedness about how they present themselves.
