Although I generally agree with the core message of the various “Occupy” happenings, I do not agree with the medium of the message. Building encampments on public property does not seem to me to be the way to deliver the message. It seems that the messages that came out were about the encampment and not about the issues. Besides that, it is a very bad precedent to set. How would Unitarians feel if the anti-abortionists took over the same park? Or if Hell’s Angels took over the space in front of City Hall? Or the Nazis encamped in front of Queens Park?
I think that demonstrations in front of the stock exchange or bank buildings would be more newsworthy and a much better way to promote the message.
