Protestors Are Organizing This Week

Recorded on April 7, 2012

This week the Occupy movement plans to train 100,000 people in 1,000 different sessions around the country, telling protestors how to take to the streets throughout this year, occupy parks and other public places, and disrupt large parts of the country.

They call it the 99% Spring, claiming to be inspired by the Arab Spring in places like Egypt and Libya.

The trainers also call themselves the Rebuild the Dream coalition, but it's all organized by moveon.org , the AFL-CIO, SEIU, United Auto Workers, National Education Association, Teamsters Union, several other unions representing government workers, and other left-wing groups.

We'll see how it plays out between now and election day. But whenever you see their protests, just remember it's not really spontaneous. It's all carefully planned, organized and bankrolled in advance.
