Occupy Wall Street Protest has Squandered an Opportunity - www.5thingsWeWant.com Finally Provides 5 Concrete "Asks" on behalf of the 98%
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
The Occupy Wall Street movement is soon to fail. Occupy protests across North America are certain to be shut down as public support fades for a movement which has stubbornly resisted to unify under a single leadership and to communicate a clear message.
"The Occupy Protestors are just as radicalized as the top 1%." says http://www.5thingsWeWant.com founder Brent Stafford. "The protest movement is squandering a huge opportunity. Not since the late 1960's has the mainstream media, government, politicians and general public been more open to a change movement. But these protestors refuse to provide concrete solutions".
Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, where the entire Occupy Wall Street movement began with Kalle Lasn's Adbusters and the Culturejammer magazine and website; http://www.5thingWeWant.com provides clearly defined 5 specific "Asks" which if implemented are certain to make a big impact in the effort to level out the inequalities, which are at the heart of the complaint of the protest.
"Unless these protesters begin to communicate a unified message, they are doomed to fail." says Stafford. "It's so tragic, as they are playing right into the standard protest narrative. Unlike other protest movements, such as the WTO conflicts, these protesters are choosing to be marginalized and de-legitimized. Frankly, the rest of the 98% of us who face structural unemployment, foreclosures, massive student loans & credit card debit are to see no real change as the protest movement gets shut down as people start dying on-site and the protest turns more violent."
http://www.5thingsWeWant.com is a new documentary video site produced by a tight group of Vancouver filmmakers, who in just a short few weeks have produced from scratch a complete project, including over a dozen professional video segments which highlight the 5 specific solutions and exposes the hypocrisy of the protest movement. "Our goal is to maximize the good deeds of the Occupy Wall Street protesters and to translate between them and the rest of the 98%." says Sr. Producer Diego Puertas.
Videos on the website capture frank commentary by the producers and the protesters themselves. They focus on the lack of a unified message, they explore the pitfalls of the movement and they capture a ongoing frustrating conflict between the protesters and the http://www.5thingsWeWant.com film crew.
"The 2012 Presidential election provides a great opportunity to affect real change we can believe in" says producer Joseph Fisher. "The protesters have done a good job of capturing mindshare, but now its at the point where their efforts are about to fail and we are trying to define the concrete solutions to achieve the real changes we need to save our free market system and way of life."
In addition to providing clarity to the Occupy Wall Street movement, the http://www.5thingsWeWant.com project and social media responses serve as the original research for Mr. Stafford's Ph.D. dissertation.
