Action Alert: What if the Tea Party Occupied Wall Street? Corporate media skip anti-corporate protests

23 September 2011 — FAIR

In an action called Occupy Wall Street, thousands of activists took to the streets of Lower Manhattan on September 17. The protests are continuing, with demonstrators camped out on the Financial District’s Liberty Street in support of U.S. democratization and against corporate domination of politics (Adbusters, 9/19/11).

Follow the Money: Behind the European Debt Crisis Lie More Bank Bailouts By David McNally

23 September 2011 — The Bullet Socialist Project E-Bulletin No. 547 – www.davidmcnally.org

While I was cursing the inane mainstream commentary on the global economy recently, I was reminded of a pivotal scene in the 1976 movie, All the President’s Men.

Always follow the money.”
