50,000 from all over the world are marching on Chicago, 80 more are holed up in lower Manhattan, planning the final stages of their protest tomorrow, others are putting the finishing touches on a planned march and rally in Portland, Oregon. Occupy is not alone; Jobs with Justice, Oregon Fair Trade, and other organizations are planning rallies against government corruption, free trade income redistributing treaties and the massive redistribution of income and wealth from the 99 to the 1 percent that the corrupt federal government has engineered during the last thirty years.

50,000 occupiers from all over the world will be converging on Chicago May 1. “The world’s military and political elites, heads of state, 7,500 officials from 80 nations, and more than 2,500 journalists will be there for a rare G8 and NATO simultaneous summit.” They will come with an eye toward planning how to redistribute more income and wealth from working people all over the world to the one percent. It’s that simple. That’s the plan, regardless of how their spokespeople paint the issue. And that’s why Occupy will be in Chicago for a month.
