But you think it is OK to say any bad thing you like about the Anglo. But oh so sensitive when it is on Chinese race.

Until you like to be so even ...

Chinese are g o o n s  and  t h u g  ...

Just see who is back around here? Our old friend Rudi Knust, the German who shopped a wife in the Philippines, came here to try to provoque unrest and now is taking the few pennies his 50 year old wife and 24 year old son Michael can make for him to keep with his camera taking pics at children.

Life has suprises indeed!

Wednesday 12 October 2011.

Do you really believe this national social movement is being orchestrated by amateurs?

They have food supplies, a medical team, computer technicians, a newspaper and even a solar panel for renewable energy:    the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York are digging in for the long haul.

On Tuesday, 25 days after a ragtag army of protesters against social inequality and Wall Street corruption first occupied Zuccotti Park in lower Manhattan, about 600 people camp more or less permanently, boosted by hundreds more during the day.

And just like anywhere else in the Financial District, Zuccotti Park buzzes with activity by 9:00 am.

The canteen whips up breakfast with donated food.

The cleaning brigade empties trashcans and sweeps up the ground to keep the cramped space clean.

IT experts are up on the Internet to post news about the day's events and reports about planned marches.

About a dozen working groups have been formed since the start on September 17, attending to every aspect of life in what now resembles an urban village.

There are committees looking after funding, security, sanitation, even legal affairs. A library of donated books is lined neatly along one of the park's walls.

It's a village, but a high-tech one:    Occupy Wall Street puts out several hours of live webcam footage a day, watched by thousands of people intrigued to see the peaceful, but surprisingly resolute demonstration in action.

The protesters' Twitter feed is also constantly updated, announcing new protests across the country and giving advice.

"It is very important," said Colin Laws, 19, who is planning to study journalism.

"We go on marches, we broadcast live on the Internet, we ask for help depending on our needs: food, medical supplies."

The media presence also helps the protesters "fight rumors."

At the park, a lower-tech communications method -- a white board -- is updated with announcements.

A weather bulletin warns of rain on Wednesday and Thursday.

Important rules, like keeping quiet at night and minding the flowerbeds, are highlighted.

There are updates about the amount of donations so far, now $40,000, and the number of towns with sister protests, now standing at 33.

It isn't all so easy. Local laws prohibit erecting tents, so campers sleep in the open.

Water has to be brought in and open fires are prohibited.

The only toilets are in nearby restaurants, an arrangement that is causing aggravation among some local residents and patrons.

But there are constant improvements. The latest was a solar panel donated by Greenpeace over the weekend that powers the computers.

"We are leaderless. We are self-organizing and this tends to (motivate) people to see what needs to be done, and they just do it," explained Rick DeVoe, 54, from Massachusetts.

His job, he said, was to be a "facilitator" and with so much to keep going, "we work a lot."

For now, the New York autumn is mild.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has spoken with mixed feelings about the protesters and their anti-Wall Street message, but he said their camp is perfectly legal so far.

"I have no idea how much longer" they will stay, he said. "I think part of it has probably to do with the weather."

DeVoe said nothing would drive them out.

"It's not going to happen. We are not going anywhere. We'll find a way, this is a very ambitious group," he said.
