@cuthere- Anybody is free to say they support the Occupation movement. Anyone. Your list proves nothing. Tell me this: which one of those groups has been given official support by the General Assembly of a single occupation? And by your last post, you clearly don't know much about what the occupation movement is about. You just point to poo that random people who have participated have said without actually looking at any of the official statements put out by the GAs of different occupations. There are a lot of random yahoos involved in the Occupation movement who don`t know a lot- but the same thing can be said for the Tea Party. One of the fundamental difference between them is that when it comes to the actual organizational structure, one functions democratically and the other does not. Official statements and actions made by each occupation are voted on, requiring 90% in favor to pass- and anyone can vote who shows up- even if they just happen to show up off the street.

I also find it hilarious (Yet sad) that you OWS ignore all the hypocrisy of the OWS movement. Hate capitalism, but love to have money thrown their way!
They "patrol" their borders now to keep the "freeloaders" out! (hmmm... Sound like illegal immigration arguments to anyone?)
They hate the banks, but take the money they are given, and put it in the banks to earn interest!!! lol
They hate the rich, (Many on video said they should be hanged, or killed) - Yet they go gaga over the multi-millionaire celebs that show up.
They hate corporations, but happily accept donations from massive billion-dollar corporations and organizations...
Hmmmm... They want the government to be honest with the people, yet they have been caught lying through their teeth on video dozens of times now about their "terrible" experiences - Including editing video to frame the police, and editing imges to make rallies look larger - LOL -Wow

@Cuthere2 Tea Party?! What a sad joke that's become since the neocons and fat cats usurped the initial movement for their own agendas.
Do you remember what the Tea Party initially protested with the "mail a teabag to a senator" campaign? Fiscal irresponsibility.
Tea Party showed some real promise, but weirded out as it attracted the ultra conservative, Evangelical, nationalistic, and ignorant.
OWS has inspired support protests and Occupy protests in over 50 countries (can you name 50 countries?), and have occurred in close to 100 major US cities and 1000 local communities.
All this since the first protest on Sept 17, about a month and a half.
Do you know what they`re protesting? Fiscal irresponsibility, economic disparity, tax inequality, the generations (in the US) of US taxpayers burdened with the bailout of the unprosecuted financial moguls who wrecked our economy.
Maybe you don`t support a liberal agenda, but I bet you
