These "protesters" are nothing but work-shy layabouts and should be removed asap!

Ive just seen David Attenburgh and the penguins in the South Atlantic and the thought occurred to me that as a society they seem to be doing ok.They all look the same,have the same coat,dont seem to have leaders or any problems with finance or other mundane things.Jump in the sea and get a free fish when they are peckish and back up the road and on to the nest.All seem very pally as well because when they go for a walk there is usually a few hundred of them go together.One penguin doesnt have any more than the next penguin.Real equality.
The only drawback I could see is its a bit chilly down there but it doesnt seem to faze them as they have built in insulation and dont depend on winter payouts to pay the bills.

You couldn't be more wrong with that comment, aja007. The protesters are actually working very hard in George Square helping feed and clothe the many homeless people who have been attracted to the protest camp in the hope of getting food and shelter. In addition, the 'Occupy Glasgow' group have been victims of repeated theft and threats of violence. Speaking last week about the dangers protesters faced at night, even in one of the busiest parts of the whole of Glasgow, one protester said:

QUOTE
"They [homeless people] are on the streets and they saw the tents and the lights and just started wandering in at night. They weren’t interested in the protest. A lot of them are vulnerable in some way.

We asked the police to provide us with more protection and spoke to the council about it sending round community wardens, but we were left on our own to deal with them."

Regarding the attitude of the organisers of Remembrance Day, human rights lawyer Aamer Anwar, who is assisting Occupy Glasgow with their legal defence against eviction, said:

QUOTE
"It is my understanding that the Royal British Legion, who are organising the Remembrance Day events, have no problem with the protesters remaining in the square."

See the STV video on this subject for more comment and analysis.

After that terrible incident last week, I thought they would have had the good sense to move on.

It would be good if we could see some positive change from all the protests round the world but I don't think it will happen any time soon.
When the banks were making all the money where did it come from? From all the ordinary people.
When the banks lost all the money who picked up the tab? Yes, us again.
So no change there.

I see that the Conservative authorities in London have dropped their legal bid to move protesters... would it be too much for the Labour authorities in Glasgow to adopt the same mature and compassionate attitude to a popular protest?

Answer: Of course it would. The authorities in Glasgow lack both compassion and maturity... not to mention a fair bit of common sense!

Not to worry..It's just the beginning of the anarchy that it will eventually turn into all over the world...it's the only way to budge these giant corporations and beaurocrats of their ass!!

The BBC is reporting that the Occupy Glasgow protesters have voluntarily decided to move their camp away from George Square, in order to accommodate the city's commemoration of Armistice Day.

The group took the decision to relocate after organising a series of city centre interviews with members of the public during the early part of the week. The protesters, despite considerable popular support, were always aware that their presence in George Square during Remembrance Sunday may have shown them in a negative light with the ordinary people of Glasgow, and have now decided to move to Kelvingrove Park.

An Occupy Glasgow spokeswoman said:
QUOTE
"We are going to move to Kelvingrove Park as the council have offered. We plan to pack up tomorrow morning and then move, though we have to arrange it with the council."

Let us hope that Glasgow City Council and Strathclyde Police now listen – and act on – the group's pleas for assistance and protection.

The voluntary move should mean that the council will no longer need to pay the exhorbitant fees of a QC to represent them at the scheduled hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court this afternoon. wink.gif

But they're holding ground at St Paul's Cathedral.

I was just thinking isn't it a terrible sad reflection on us that we seem to now accept that homeless people roam the streets at night. Was it not for the likes of these young people around the world who are protesting (much to their own personal discomfort) while the rest of us sleepwalk through a complete nightmare many more of us will be homeless.

I'm sad that they have had to move from George Square although we may find that many more will join their ranks in the West End.
