The protesters have made their point and it is time for them to go but I get the impression that this will go the whole road so when the legal process is complete they will be moved with reasonable force ie mounted police,water canon,taser guns and the army on standby should they be required. rolleyes.gif

No Jupiter that's what we should be doing to the bankers.

The tolerence shown to our Occupy Vancouver group is testament to the fact that Canadians here do not speak for most Canadians. I am a Secnd World War and a D-Day Veteran and I know that the Comrades that I lost during those years would be supporting the protesters. Many of todays Seniors are yesterdays Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen who are still waiting for the better World for which they Fought and saw others Die. I Remember every single day that I live.

It is not about making a point, it is about making a difference. The Protest is the instrument to do that.

Melody,
I listened to two protesters on BBC Scotland News one of whom stated he was homeless and thats why he was there and the other one talking of bankers robbing them blind.Now both have valid beefs but neither of them or any other protesters Ive listened to have come up with any credible alternative financial system to the one presently in place.
I firmly believe that living in a democratic country as we do,each individual has the right to peaceful protest.Having done so it is time to move on.They have been asked but they appear to be digging in so it looks as though the matter will be decided by the courts and ultimately by court appointed officials/police.
I was joking about the tasers guns and the army. rolleyes.gif

Are you saying that the Courts and the Police are the protectors of the bankers and the speculators who have brought about these Protests.
If so, who can the Protesters look to for support of their grievance. The question of Democracy is a two sided sword!

Aye they'll likely 'move' them on in the middle of the night.

Seems a bit rich coming from Glasgow Corporation, the ones who took the money from a movie company and pop award ceremony to take over the square. So how much do they want to let the protesters remain there ?

Harry Greenwood,If I was saying that the police were protectors of the bankers and speculators would I be so wrong?The police are a non political,non vested interest organisation who exist to,among other things uphold law and order.The Protesters can expect every protection from the police,just like you and I, on condition we are living within the laws of the land.If you are not familiar with my posts let me just say I normally say what I mean.
Melody if it does come to a forceful removal,and I hope it doesnt come to that would it not be better if it did happen at a time when it did not paralyse the city centre and stop lawful citizens going about their business?

Occupiers have made their point, whatever that may be, and it is time to go. Other people want to use George Square for various reasons, so why does the camp take precedence over their wishes?

Saying that protesters should go home is how bankers have become so powerful that they are now treating the ordinary people like dirt.

It is time these so called protesters all over the world packed up their tents and went home.

Nevermind went home, how about if they went to work? What I mean is how do these people finance their protesting? Have they all taken time off work? are they unemployed and living from the state? or are they themselves the Capitalists that they claim to despise. I myself am a disabled Veteran and am worried that the Remembrance Day Celebrations could end up looking like a farce with these protestors in place.

They have had the protest. Made the point. Now its time to go. Perhaps the city council should charge them rent. Plus the clean up cost once they have gone. The people I have seen in the tents seem almost unemployable to my "untrained" eyes.

Jupiter, hopefully we all say what we mean. No Jupiter, it would be better to 'move' them during daylight hours in full view of Glasgow citizens if this is their intention. Let the ordinary folk for whom the campers are protesting see what really happens to your right to protest.

Melody,I have no problems with that whatsoever but was merely considering the bigger picture and inconvenience to other citizens,having saw the mayhem which ensued at George Square recently when a film crew took over.Incidentally I consider myself an ordinary sort and wouldnt,couldnt ever contemplate any of the protesters (and Ive seen quite a few) speaking up or being under the impression they were acting on my behalf or for my benefit .
