Occupy Victoria!

At this point in time (Monday 17 October), Occupy Victoria presents a peaceful, almost idyllic scene. It's a nice change to see Centennial Square occupied by relaxed citizens being themselves and expressing their views freely as we are supposed to be able to do in a democracy. Surely this is what a city square is for. There's food and discussion and information. If you live in Victoria, drop down to Centennial Square and see what's going on.

Maybe Canadian protesters bathe. That would be welcome down here.

On the face of it anyone could be excused for wondering just how much influence this protest could weld in the larger picture. I think the Occupy protests all over North America serve to demonstrate solidarity with the key one happening in NYC, the visual focal point for the massive corporate corruption that led to the mess economies are experiencing on large scale.
There are white-collar criminals that got very, very rich from what happened by fraudulent trading. Money doesn't disappear, it just changes hands.

Some of the protests here have had minimal turnouts.
