WEF's weak point!

The World Economic Forum has a weak point!

WEF's Weak Point! [T 12002:01:30:17:59:03]



World Economic Forum demonstratons need to connect with



the Public's basic indignation and anger



currently stired up by the Corporate Media.



The Corporate Media is currently focused on Enron,



so any WEF demonstraton should link into their Enron coverage.



The Public works hard for a few dollars,



sees the Enron executives as corrupt freeloaders



who have not earned their pay.



The Public understands the executives have not realy contributed to society,



but have benefited from society big time.



This Public moral outrage is seaking a target.



 



In this regard The World Economic Forum and Bush Jr. have a major weak point:



"Americans perceive Republicans as far more entangled in the Enron debacle than Democrats,



and their suspicions are growing that the Bush administration is hiding something



or lying about its own dealings with the Enron Corporation



before the company filed for bankruptcy protection,



the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll shows.



Even among Republicans,



a majority said they believed that the administration had not been forthcoming



about its dealings with Enron.



That perception could pose a threat to Republican candidates in the midterm elections this year,



and undermine the White House drive to portray the Enron collapse



as effecting Republicans and Democrats equally." ...



"Executives of the Enron Corporation had closer ties to members of which party?



Republican 45%



Democratic 10%



Both Equal  10%



No Opinion  34%" ...



"The collapse of the Enron Corporation is of what importance to the nation?



Great        39%



Some       44%



Very Little   8%



No Opinion 9%"



Poll Finds Enron's Taint Clings More to G.O.P. Than Democrats



by Richard L. Berke and Janet Elder



The New York Times Sunday Jan. 27 2002 page A1, A22



http://www.nyt.com/">http://www.nyt.com



 



If the evening news on 01/31 to 02/04 shows



a large number of peaceful demonstrator's signs stating, in general,



[ the WEF is a bigger verson of Enron]



and the demonstrators are chanting something like,



"Enron ... Enron ... Enron ... World Economic Forum



your nothing but a freeloading, dirty, lowdown, sleazy



Enron ... Enron ... Enron",



then the words "World Economic Forum" and "Enron"



may be on millions of TV screens,



the WEF may be perceived as a much larger Enron in the making,



the demonstrators may be seen to be doing something for labor,



and Public opion may be on the side of the demonstrators.



The Goal is to make WEF a dirty word, like Enron,



and avoid any violence.



 



Please send this email to your friends, Thank You!
