Call for a Change - Occupy Wall Street (OWS)

In a blog post in the month of July 2011 , a Canadian-based Adbusters Foundation, well-known for its advertisement-free anti-consumerist magazine namely Adbusters, projected a nonviolent occupation of Wall Street to protest corporate influence on democracy, a growing inequality in wealth, and the absence of legal impacts behind the recent worldwide fiscal calamity. They sought to unite the symbolic place of the 2011 protests in Tahrir Square with the consensus decision making of the 2011 Spanish protests. Adbusters' leading editor Micah White said they had proposed the protest through their email record and it "was spontaneously taken up by all the public of the world. Adbusters' website stated that from their "one simple demand; a presidential commission to separate money from politics" they would "initiate to set the agenda for a new USA." They supported the protest with a hoarding featuring a dancer atop Wall Street's iconic Charging Bull.

The internet group Anonymous encouraged its followers and supporters to become part in the protests, calling campaigners to "flood lower Manhattan, set up tents, kitchens, peaceful blockades and occupy Wall Street." It is noted that many anonymous supporters of these activists give their credit card numbers to stores near by the protest area and instruct the store keeper to provide food to these people.

Adbusters' Kalle Lasn, said that later than the election of President Barrack Obama it was a feeling among the young that the new President would pass laws to control the banking structure and "capture these monetary fraudsters and bring them to justice." But, as time passed, "the feeling that he's a bit of a gutless wonder gradually crept in" and they lost their expectation that his election would result in change.

The protest was commenced at Zuccotti Park because it was private property and police could not lawfully compel them to leave without being requested to do so by the property owner. At a press conference held on the same day as the protests began, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg stated that, "People have a right to protest, and if they want to protest, we'll be happy to make certain they have right locations to do so.

In a short summary, Occupy Wall Street is an continuing series of protests began by a Canadian youth group namely Adbusters which started on September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park of New York City's Wall Street financial hub. The protests are against social and economic inequality, high unemployment, greed, as well as corruption, and the undue influence of corporations particularly that of the financial services sector on government. The protesters' slogan We are the 99% refers to the growing difference in wealth in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population. Occupy Wall Street has led to the broader Occupy movement of leaderless protests in other American cities and around the world. The main thing is that the fully advance and neutral media channels of all news agencies are silent upon this gigantic campaign and these young protesters could not get even a single column of any leading news paper neither a single line strip over any news channel, the neutral media who focused its eyes and shouting even upon the death of an aunt in Afghanistan, China or any other country is still not provide any news bulletin about OWS, no hot discussions, no eye coverage.

A calm gathering of protesters having different placard in there hand, a young girl display a card stating a personal story on it that "my grandmother was on last stage of cancer, she need a process that cost $ 7,000, Blue cross refused to pay the sum, same year the CEO of Blue Cross took home that cost $ 1.5 million, my grandmother was 53% and I am 99%. An other young lady having a placard stating that "look mom no future". It could be said that the system of Capitalism is in its brink of an end and taking its last breaths of life, soon or later it will vanish same like  Communism in past, then what the choice will be left for Finical Experts who successfully run this system and having a Hi life style that include driving expensive SUV's or stretched Limos and living in homes that have golf course and helipads now they are facing bad impacts of Capitalism. No one has any successful system other than Islam that had been stated 1400 years ago. An Islamic Scholar Dr. Israr Ahmed (Late) once said while addressing publicly that the disaster began from that day, the day they implemented the system of price The Financial System of Islam is the most suitable alternate at this stage to overcome the current financial and economical situation.
