No Right To Protest In America: Occupation Of Wall Street Thwarted Thanks To Ignorant Police

Back in July, Adbusters began promoting a move to occupy Wall Street in protest of the rampant corruption, market manipulation and out of control greed that is destroying our nation today.
Adbusters was hoping for a turnout of some 20,000 angry Americans who would occupy Wall Street for months.
Unfortunately, it appears that the number was less than 1/20th of their goal or less than 1,000 activists, according to AFP.
However, different news outlets are reporting very different numbers. MSNBC reported that “More than 1,000 demonstrators descended on New York City’s Financial District” which is a significantly larger number than that reported by AFP.
It is also worth noting that MSNBC characterized the protest as an invasion of the NYC Financial District, which is a very interesting choice of words.
How can citizens invade public property that belongs to their own country?
Well, they can’t. MSNBC would just like to implant subtle language that makes these protesters out to be something other than Americans attempting to get our way of life back in a peaceful manner.
In order to stop Americans from utilizing their right to protest, the police (who, on the whole, protect and serve the elite while they subjugate, dehumanize, exploit and abuse the average citizen) blocked off all of the streets near the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Federal Hall.
The plan was to transform the Lower Manhattan financial center into an “American Tahrir Square” but instead it was yet another show of force by the corrupt police that support the financial oligarchs that systematically rape the United States and its people.
