Draft Proposal for Thursday 11/10: Principles of Solidarity

Posted by & filed under Assemblies, Past Proposals.

Background: On 11/8/11, the GA approved solidarity’s stop-gap, Emergency Proposal, which was: “For the next 48 hours, until the next GA, Occupiers in a space required by the community must consent in order to be removed, or consent regarding a shared usage of space.”
Now: Solidarity is involved with other working groups on this issue, including Town Planning.  The intent is to formulate a precise protocol regarding the balancing of shared and individual space at OWS.  While it was intended to formulate this protocol by 11/10/11, the stop-gap’s expiry, such was not possible due to the complexity of the issue and the very short amount of time available.  Therefore, Solidarity will propose the following for the 11/10/11 GA: “Regarding the expiry of the stop-gap, Emergency Proposal of 11/8/11 about the shared and individual usages of space at OWS, request is made to extend the expiry date (11/10/11) of such proposal to Sunday, 11/13/11. Additionally, break-out groups are requested, with their intent being to gather the GA’s ideas on how OWS can appropriately balance shared and individual usages of space so to keep solidarity within the movement.”

    teach the people how WALL ST is still stealing everyones money TODAY.. No jobs, No Growth, no nothing can happen unless someone exposes this. Money from pensions will continue to be drained and the downward spiral will continue, Mike Moore said its a rigged game. WELL its time to learn before its to late.. Go ask the investors in Madoff or any other the great collpaese in the market Where did all the money go. HEDGE FUNDS have it go look in Greenwich on what they spent it on.. Here is 1 crime still going on TODAY


    I would like to help explain this crime vs. all Americans by the banks and hedge funds in the easiest way, so please take the time and watch
    this short clip on how it works. Educate yourself on how your money was looted, with crooks fully protected by the people who were supposed to be regulating them. Imagine an armed robbery conducted in connivance with the police, and you will get the idea.

    Please watch this 3 part series as it will walk you thru this CRIME that has destroyed our COUNTRY


    Now that you have some idea to how this Crime is carried out you can see that EVERYONE knows about it but still not one person has gone to jail. Someone needs to put a FACE on these criminals If its not a Hedge Fund then who is doing it? Naked Short sellers called terrorists on CNBC,, Could it be?

    Many companies have been destroyed, JOBS LOST BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS. Everyone in DC knows this is going on and YET have done nothing to PROTECT the people…instead we just get more blah blah blah. This has been going on since 2001, as far as I go back in this fight,, Hundreds of investors have stood up and fought to protect this country. We all knew we had to do something. The greatest thing to happen was the INTERNET. It helped us connect and to contact with each other at light speed. So now it’s the MASSES who need to finish this fight. It is you who need to protect yourself and your family. Stand up and save this country from these THUGS.

    Please continue to go thru some of the basic information on this subject. You will see that the head of the SEC said that this was a serious crime that crippled many small and medium-sized companies. He promised to protect us from this fraud in 2008. Soon after, the SEC said that the fraud was contributing to the collapse of the financial system. Words aside, though, it did NOTHING to stop it. Three years later, in 2011, NOT ONE person has been prosecuted, and the destructive fraud continues as usual.

    This story below is From the Economist Magazine Dated Jun 2nd 2011.
    It tells the story on HOW HUGE this CRIME IS TODAY

    America’s dodgy financial plumbing
    Too big a fail count
    The sheer number of unsettled trades is rattling regulators
    Jun 2nd 2011 | NEW YORK | from the print edition

    CLEARING and settlement are supposed to ensure that share, bond and derivative deals are completed safely and on time. These back-office processes are arcane, unglamorous and too often taken for granted—until things go wrong, when their importance becomes painfully apparent. The financial crisis of 2007-09 and the “flash crash” of American stock markets in May 2010 revealed numerous faults in the plumbing. Efforts are under way to mend these, but regulators have been slow to attend to some worrying new blockages arising from today’s high-frequency and tightly coupled markets.

    A report on economic warfare that it commissioned in 2009 gave warning that settlement flaws could be used by terrorists to destabilise financial systems.


    A Very nice story in Rolling Stone magazine. Yes, that’s right Rolling Stone.
    The Wall Street Journal just can’t seem to speak about it.

    Wall Street’s Naked Swindle
    A scheme to flood the market with counterfeit stocks helped kill Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers — and the feds have yet to bust the culprits http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/wall-streets-naked-swindle-20100405

    Watch Matt Taibbi, who wrote the story, explain the fraud:

    I know this is a lot to cover for the average person, but THIS is the
    crime that has destroyed everything you have worked for, and the
    CROOKS continue to do it and the people in DC do nothing.
    Its time to end it once and for all

    The Real ending of this fraud and the BEST way to punish these thugs is for the DOJ to follow the SELL tickets right to OUR MONEY. The Paper Trail is plain and simple. When they sold these FAKE shares they had to write a sell ticket and the MONEY had to go somewhere.. FOLLOW THE SELL TICKETS to the MONEY , Force them to BUY BACK all the FAKE SHARES they sold us as the market crashed. Watch the price of all the companies that have Counterfeit shares rise and go thru the roof as they try and by them back. Please read about how short sellers lost BILLIONS when it went against them in
    the price of Volkswagen. That is their greatest FEAR Enforce the laws and our stock market as a whole will skyrocket, wiping out the criminals who have deliberately impoverished America. And then let’s not forget to THROW THEIR ASS IN JAIL FOR LIFE


    As you see below EVERYONE knows about it,,, I can go on forever
    with more evidence. Dick Grasso former head of NYSE at 8 min
    and 30 sec end naked shorting


    – Roel Campos, former commissioner at the U.S. Securities &
    Exchange Commission on Naked Short selling. At 1:15 he makes the
    point, naked short selling is the real problem. How long does it take them to
    know the problem before they do anything about it??!!!


    EVEN GOLDMAN SACHS ON Thursday Jun 10, 2010

    TORONTO (Reuters) – Goldman Sachs Group Inc President Gary Cohn said on Thursday industry agrees that naked short selling should be banned.
    “I don’t think anyone in the industry has any problems with banning naked short (sales),” said Cohn, who is addressing a securities regulation conference here.
    “The concept of naked short sale is not a great concept. In fact, from a regulatory standpoint the more regulatory certainty we get on naked short sales the easier it is for us to force these down on our clients.”

    On a side note the headquarters of the Settlement system (DTCC 55 Water ST) is just blocks away from the Occupy Wall St protest and Likes their name kept out of the picture at all cost.. Read what they had to say in 2005 and where we are today In English they said Public companies are all crying because our stocks went down,, Iam sure some companies were bad,, But the Data shows FRAUD and a lot of it and the DTCC helped cover it up. They should be held responsible and let the investing public know YEARS ago about the FAILS in the system and how BIG IT IS. Instead of hiding the truth.


    @dtcc: If the volume in the Stock Borrow program is so small, why are these companies suggesting it is a major issue?
    Thompson: Frankly, we believe that the allegations are attempting to purposely mislead those who are not familiar with this program. A number of small OTCBB and so-called “pink sheet” companies have contended that this practice is driving down the price of their shares and driving them out of business.
    According to their own 10K and 10Q reports financial auditor’s disclosure statements, many of these firms have admitted that “factors raise substantial doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.” They have had little or no revenue, according to their financial reports, and substantial losses, for periods of seven or eight years. One of these companies has been cited for failing to file financial statements since 2001. Another has been cited by the SEC for press releases that misled investors on expanding business contracts that didn’t exist. They will do anything they can do that takes people’s attention off that kind of record, especially if they can convince a law firm to take the case on a contingency basis, which is what has happened.


    Now that you know this is a MESS and still goes on This JUST was released on 10/26/2011 Funny the Head of SEC said dont worry we are on it,,

    UBS fined for CRIMES a real joke,, paid $12M how much did they steal? how much damage? and the Finally question WHO DID THEY DO IT FOR? Must be some BIG Client to take a hit for that, HOWBOUT SOME JAIL TIME for someone


    But here is one of the many outcomes of Naked Short selling,, In REAL TIME like Yesterday

    General Dynamics to buy Force Protection

    Mon Nov 7, 2011 1:57pm EST
    FRPT.O) for $360

    Now the fun Part,,, in 2008 stock was $30, then someone started Naked short selling stock all the way down to below $3, All Fraud by the way..


    Now in 2011 this company was the target of a takeover by (GD) for $5.60 cents a share.. A far cry from the mid $20’s on a company that PROTECTS our troops. The only question is who NAKED SHORTED this stock
    could it have ties to (GD) so they would have to pay a lower price? Or was it a group of OFFSHORE HEDGE FUNDS trying to stop this company from building more trucks so more of our troops get killed?

    I get it by the lack of response i get from all Media, and Its a disgrace that this goes on and still does, Hey My kids are alive, go tell the parents of a soldier they were killed because this company could not build a truck to protect them because their stock went down and could not raise money. Oh well I feel better I DID my part.

    Think about the cost to buy this company if the stock was $20 it would be at least a $1.4 BILLION DEAL,, not $360 Million,, Iam sure long term shareholders and insiders are thrilled they worked for zero


    I can show you more,, but 1st learn this one . How about a list of quick questions

    1) Who can Naked Short? Can anyone do it? And since it is illegal who is doing it? Maybe Aliens
    2) If it is illegal why hasn’t anyone gone to JAIL
    3) Wall St has the most powerful Banks and Brokers in the World and yet we cant settle a trade on time? WHY? My guess they don’t want to
    4) Why does a public company have to be at the mercy of the Stock settlement system? Does the DTC(name of stock settlement system) help a public company in anyway? (NO) They are there to settle trades and get a fee for it. Yet when they don’t settle trades on time they still get paid and the stock of these companies get destroyed for NO reason at all. Stock settlement is T+3 for all US investors who has the free pass?
    5) My favorite question is for the Brokerage firms, When we do a trade we pay a commission for the trade. Part of that commission is make sure the trade is settled. If the trade is not settled does the Brokerage firm count that commission as earned? The never really earned it yet. So my take on it is that all the Financials of these Firms are wrong and should be adjusted to remove that income they did not earn. Remember everyone gets paid a Bonus at these firms they never really earned since the numbers are WRONG. What accounting firm do they use and who there signs off on that?
    6) My Final question is does anyone have any idea who owns the DTC? Take a look and see. A quick Hint,,, Not the Govt BUT all the WALL ST PLAYERS own it.. Wonder why its in their favor.

    The 99% want JUSTICE NOW
