With the Good, Comes the Bad: Attacks on the occupy movement

#OWS, negative press, occupy movement, occupy everywhere, violent protesters

So In the past two days I have come across an article and a picture that depict the occupy movement very negatively. And although I do not think this movement is perfect, I think it is one of the best chances we have in empowering the people of this country and making real change.

If you are like me, you have been hearing a lot of controversy about the keystone xl pipeline that is suppose to run through the heart of the United States to shuttle tar sands oil from Canada to the Gulf.

democracy, voting, communication, citizens, representation, cooperation

Whenever I read an article on the environment, politics or the occupy movement, I like to glance at the comments below the article as well. And it is amazing what many people say behind the protection of their computer and made-up username.

Many people respond very emotionally: calling people names, making jokes at the expense of others and discrediting anything that does not jive with their point of views.
