I'm going down to Occupy London tomorrow. Feel free to join me.

I'll be doing the usual talk, Q&A and fliers for bitcoin. Suggestions welcome below.

I don't understand. "Occupy London Stock Exchange"? Why would people go against a stock exchange? The info on Wikipedia doesn't look consistent, but it appears the thing's owned by entities like a Dubai exchange and Qatar. Apart from some kind of splash damage tactic against local investors, what exactly could be the point of this?

The website makes it even stranger; all the topics clearly aim at the government or the EU.

You can mention that if they set up a donation address, you know a guy that will donate the first coin.  Kiss

<OccupyLSX647> Hi all, is there plans to cripple the stock exchange by organising a mass withdrawal yet? If not I can get a project under way. A complete collapse of the system by just removing our funds would be the ultimate slap in the face!!
<genjix> that won't work.
<OccupyLSX647> On a global scale it would...
<genjix> you can't cripple a stock exchange by withdrawing from a bank

Naivete. Their hearts are maybe in the right place at least. It's a good chance to show people bitcoin exists. Not sell them on our propaganda, but build a bridge.

That wouldn't make a difference.  The fuel behind the occupy movement is that a small number of people hold the vast majority of wealth, while the majority of us hold just a little.  If we all go down there and withdraw our petty funds, they wouldn't even bat an eye.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to prayers.

Didn't we just recently see in enormous cases what happens where the majority of people control funds? Governments insanity, all the speculative bubbles and misplaced resources, it's a catastrophe!

I see that taxes should be fair, but this sounds like people want to take the control over money flows away from investors and think tanks.

Please let me clearly state my opinion: no. Do not do that! Who cares for the economy if that happens? The politicians sure as hell don't. People dig their own grave if they use financial markets as scapegoats.
