|The conflict between reformers, revolutionaries, and those who simply "just want everybody to get along." has culminated in a shutdown of the Occupy Seattle website and calls from various working groups, both 'liberal' and 'radical', to separate from Occupy Seattle completely, while others are advocating taking Occupy into the communities via the existing working groups. |
Accusations of 'agent provocateurs', 'vanguardism', 'racism', 'race baiting', 'a fresh coup attempt from the liberals', and 'opportunism' are now flying around the local movement. As this is being posted, all the political factions of Occupy Seattle are gearing up for an ideological showdown tonight at general assembly at the Wa. State Convention Center at 7pm PST over a proposal asking whether or not to support a global general strike on May 1st, 2012.
