Green Party of Suffolk: Occupy/Peace Black Friday at Smith Haven Mall

A number of Green Party of Suffolk members participated in a demonstration at Smith Haven Mall on Long Island on Black Friday. The Green Party of Suffolk endorsed the demonstration, and is an organization in the Suffolk Peace Network which helped organize the action.

“[This] is a gathering of the 99 percent,” said Green Bill McNulty. “It’s the 99 percent that has been unable—because of job loss, foreclosures and the collapse of the financial markets and all the rest of it—to satisfy its material needs.”

“The beauty of this movement is that it’s uniting people across all sorts of life: those who have been foreclosed, students who graduate with huge loans and no jobs and the working people, whose wages have been flat since the 70s,” he continues. “All of these people are here and we’re acting in a way, we hope, which will keep this movement going—because the politicians aren’t listening. They are elected by us, but don’t serve us, so there has to be another pressure, another force exerted, to promote… systemic change that will promote the well-being of the population, the 99 percent.”

The event was covered by several, local media outlets, and the activist press. There are photos at FaceBook: here and at Flickr: here.

    My little cabal is buying next to nothing. Even Tish, and her house mate, sister in law as ‘Grand mothers of the year’ are backing down with Tish’s home made jewelry.

    Thanks giving was a couple of chicken sandwices ……..

    Blue Thursday, Black Friday, Cyber Monday ……….. ha …….. too busy with medical appointments ……….

    Christmas is Catholic CHRIST MASS!

    If you are not a pro pediphile priest supporter of the Bishop of Roma, why indulge in a fake holidaze ???????? What is next, large Lapidaries laying colored chicken eggs in the spring ???????

    Prodestants did not celebrate Chirst Mass untill recently. Lead by Quakers, Shakers, and Puritans! Jesus did not celebrate his birthday, which was NOT on December 25th, the Roman Year Zero!

    Christ Mass trees are a PAGAN import from Prince Albert’s Germany – Hungary!

    Why spend money we do not have, on things we do not need, for a fake, fantsy holidaze ??????

    At least it will keep the space invaders away. There is obviously little / none inteligent life on the ‘third rock from the sun’!

    sorry, this linkage did not travel with the December Dumb Shit Holiday tirade:

    I re-stumbled upon this thread:


    And I saw messages for me since May (!)

    Obviously that board isn’t the most efficient way of communicating.

    I was pushing hard for a new place that thousands would regularly post at, to create a community forum nationally, and divided by states and cities as well as interests and other categories.

    Here’s my full proposal, before I got all disillusioned. See what you think, or if any new web activity has moved in that direction.

    How to Turn the Green Party decline around
