Great video compilation. Thanks Shooz.

You're very welcome.

I'm saddened that more haven't watched it, as it is truly well done..

I've passed it around the few forums I visit.

There's still a manufactured aura around #ows. Like we're all a bunch of smelly dope-smoking hippies.

Mass-mesmeric-media is hard to overturn in people's psyches. So many Americans have been locked into this gay marriage scenario, which is right where the oligarchs want them.

Thanks for passing it on.

That was the best Occupy doc i have seen. Thanks shooz

Everyone should watch it, and they should also watch this one on the early 20th century labor movement

Despite our differences in which we really piss each other off, I have never doubted that you are true to the cause

I've seen Lifting The Veil, but it was quite a while ago, so i should watch it again.... maybe i will tonight

I know that I do not always practice what i preach, but no one does all the time, i try though

In that light, sometimes it's best not to rub things in, and give the person a chance to change

The world that we want should start now

That's right gsw, everything should "start in ourselves" hence my previous humbling comment

Sign off, make a cup of tea, crank up "ol computer," and give it another go on the doc. It's worth it, and follow it up with the Triangle doc if you have not seen it

I'll twinkle you up for the time you lose here, OK? lol

Here's one I have yet to see.

It looks like a good doc to see

You can learn a lot from the 20th century labor movements, and from your previous comment link on the propaganda they used to control us

“If you want to know how we once created a ‘middle class’ - and what it will probably take to get it back - watch this movie." - Michael Moore, filmmaker

Have you seen it yet? The early 20th century labor movement, as I keep harping about is another good example of how we can recreate the "middle class"

I watched the trailer.

Half the workers I speak to in Australia are convinced that unions are a curse, such is the power of the press.

Hopefully your mates will come to their senses, before the people in this country do

No union is perfect, but what is far less perfect is no unions

Right to work in the 21st century, and how WE will react, has become the more important story.

The Right To Work laws which were an assault on Unions started getting enacted in 1947 when the Taft Hartley Act was passed

Unlike the early 20th century, outsourcing jobs overseas continues to be a major obstacle for the growth of unions in this country

It is not until we see union enrollment increasing will we get our share of the pie

Nice video. I think the reaction by the state is all the more proof on why there needs to be radical change.
