OCCUPY roses and constitution showed up in media

by one of many Wednesday, Jan. 04, 2012 at 4:03 PM

Many more local newspapers covered Occupy The Rose Parade, while TV paid-for-corporate-money pretended WE were not there! See sources on net below for pure enjoyment and passing on to those who missed the parade or the news that counted.

Many looked on TV and did not see the Occupy float or supporters...but Google helped some of us find great photos of the enlarged revalidated CONSTITUTION that was floated in back of the commercialized version of the Rose Parade ...Jan 2, 2012.


For more internet pix and videos and stories, see below:

same article same reporter syndicated as San Gabriel V N ?



Dec 19/11 Pasadena Star News article

http://www.pasadenastarnews.com/news/ci_19576053

says Cornel West’s .... “West's endorsement came as a surprise to Occupy the Rose Parade organizer Aaron Murphy, who was at All Saints for West's speech. "I was really surprised by his vision that to really be a Christian, one must support movements like Occupy," Murphy said. "



and see on Wiki too =

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupy_Rose_Parade


THE PHOTOS ARE TERRIFIC AND SHOW HOW SUCCESSFUL OCCUPIERS WERE IN MEDIA

EVEN IF THE OFFICIAL TV VERSION DENIED US ACCESS AND IGNORED THE BEST PART THAT WAS NOT a repeat of the same old :


COMMERCIAL ordinary repetitious themes and comicbook characters

MILITARIZED dressed YOUTH in "marching" bands
see the military uniforms of prior generations for facimilies


USING THE physical beauty of young women mostly to promote commercial institutions and products for profit purposes...as in beauty 'pageants' and competition to be a celebrity and get fame for money.


and promoting the so-called-non-profits, the banks, the business hoping to cash in on the parade global visibility
for getting more $$$$, more customers, more P.R.


and to give those worn out after Dec 31-Jan 1st hangover a place to sit safetly watching TV with accompanying loud commercials


what's new here ?


the OCCUPY group,


since size is not the important aspect but the great images are

recognizing all the efforts and work in making the displays,

the many people who 'showed up' and loyally supported the 'floaters'


and then..... the follow up WE ALL WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE in being given attention

mostly because of what WE SAY AND ADDRESS that politics corporations and businesses and regulators prefer to ignore, dismiss, hide and avoid !

we shall not be....ignored, denied, dismissed.
not now, not ever !
