North Korea is the latest in the who’s who of global villains to support OWS. NorK state media approvingly reports:
Pyongyang, October 8 (KCNA) — Unprecedented demos are taking place in the United States these days in protest against exploitation and oppression by capital, shaking all fabrics of society.
The first demo kicked off in Wall Street on Sept. 17. It has been going on for three consecutive weeks.
The demonstrators put up slogan “Let’s Occupy Wall Street”.
Young Americans formed a mainstream of the ranks of demonstrators at first. But they were joined by people from all walks of life who varied in their ages including day laborers, poor and unemployed Americans as well as employees of companies and housewives.
…The waves of demo which swept the U.S. recently is an expression of the grievances against the mounting social contradiction resulting from the worsening unemployment and the widening gap between the poor and the rich due to the serious economic crisis.
It also reflects the public opinion critical of the authorities and the exploiting classes who drove the country into such serious phase.
…Such protests as what is happening in the U.S. are expected to take place in other capitalist countries.
They are in the esteemed company of the American Nazi Party, the Communist Party USA, China, Hugo Chavez, and Iran. This country is running out of enemies that have yet to officially back #OWS (Fidel Castro and Al-Qaeda/Hamas/Hezbollah, I’m looking at you!).
Here is Iran’s Supreme Leader on the subject:
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei claimed the US was now in a full blown crisis because its “corrupt foundation has been exposed to the American people”.
“They [the US government] may crack down on this movement but cannot uproot it,” Khamenei said. “Ultimately, it will grow so that it will bring down the capitalist system and the west.”
The Chinese Foreign Ministry, perhaps a bit more circumspect about the counterproductiveness of their endorsement, uses vaguely positive diplospeak:
“We feel that there are issues here that are worth pondering,” said Liu Weimin, a foreign ministry spokesman during a regular briefing in Beijing.
…but the domestic protests they allowed to occur, and even permitted to be reported in the Chinese media (although some versions were taken down), tell a clearer story:
Hundreds of residents of Zhengzhou, the capital of Henan province rallied to support the movement of Occupy Wall Street in front of Labor People’s Cultural Center on October 6th.
Holding banners which wrote “Absolutely support the American people’s great ‘Occupy Wall Street revolution’”, people gathered and passed around flyers about the event happening in New York. They wore red armbands and showed their support to this movement. The demonstrators were consisted of workers, cadres of state-owned enterprise and some retirees. A cadre from a state-owned enterprise said “USA is so bad that it bullies any countries as it wishes. Bullying others with its rod of liberal democracy, it interferes with the internal affairs of other countries and overthrows the regimes of other. Now it’s time for pay back of its evil. The true colors of USA are coming out.” A young man who also took part in the rally analyzed the reason of the Occupy Wall Street movement that the capitalism had reached its end and the people in capitalist countries were woken up. Another middle-aged person from Shandong province gave his opinions that the socialism can save China, but also the world.
OWS is even more popular with the hardline factions in the Chinese Communist Party:
China’s new leftists – socialist critics of the country’s capitalist-style economic reforms – are beginning to lend support, declaring the [U.S.] demonstrations as a “great revolution” that sounds the death-knell for capitalism throughout the world.
The new leftists oppose what they view as Beijing’s “pro-capitalist and pro-U.S. policies” and “apparently see the U.S. protest movement as strong evidence in support of their faith.” (That would be faith in authoritarian government, not God or a Creator.) The primary website of China’s new leftists, called Utopia, includes prominent references to the “Wall StreetRevolution”, the “Death of Capitalism”, and praise for socialism and “Mao-style ideology”.
Hugo Chavez is also an OWS fan:
Not surprisingly, Chavez expressed solidarity with American activists who have been staging rallies and marches against what they view as corporate greed by Wall Street…
“This movement of popular outrage is expanding to 10 cities and the repression is horrible, I don’t know how many are in prison now,” Chavez said in comments at a political meeting in his Caracas presidential palace shown on state TV.
Southern California Party leader Arturo Cambron will share how the CPUSA and Young Communist League (YCL) are working in “Occupy Los Angeles.”
The movement is the newest wrinkle in the all-people’s upsurge against the banks and corporations and reflects a new level of class-consciousness.
While there is a wide range of political and ideological trends, there is a consensus against corporate greed, getting money out of politics, taxing the rich and putting people before profits.
A big challenge for the CPUSA and left, progressive movements is to link these demonstrations with the labor led all-people’s coalition and help deepen understanding that the path to progress must be through electoral and political action including defeating Republican Tea Party reaction in 2012.
Of primary importance is linking it with the burgeoning fight for jobs and especially passage of the American Jobs Act.
We can also play a role in offering more advanced programmatic ideas like nationalizing the banks and socialism.
…and finish the evil sandwich with an official statement from the American Nazi Party (Not going to link to them)
This issue is TAYLOR MADE for National Socialists, as well as WN who are serious about DOING SOMETHING – MORE – than shouting “racial slurs” and acting like “poster boys of hate” loons.
After all – JUST WHO – are the WALL STREET BANKERS? The vast majority are JEWS…And MORE and MORE people are AWARE of this truth, are not only NOT afraid to TALK ABOUT IT – they’re shouting it on WALL STREET!
I urgently URGE all of you to TAKE PART and JOIN IN when these protests hit your neck of the woods. Produce some flyers EXPLAINING the “JEW BANKER” influence – DON’T wear anything marking you as an “evil racist” – and GET OUT THERE and SPREAD the WORD!
