Protesters have had enough of corporate relation dominating over public interest. Rallies all over the United States echo this concern. Protests against handful of big corporations ruling over the economy are wide spread all over the US. The same protest is set to reach Britain this coming Saturday. The protesters plan to hail their voices right in front of the London Stock Exchange, according to the organisers of the rally.
The group tagged as â€˜Occupy London Stock Exchangeâ€™ or Occupy LSX wants to have their rally in a peaceful fashion and station very near the cityâ€™s financial center. With the strong influence of online media and social networking, the group attracted over 3,500 attendees. “This is a people-powered movement protesting against the increasing social and economic injustice in the UK,” says OccupyLSX follower Kai Wargalla. The group calls for the government and private corporations to stand for and value their people rather than be profit-oriented. â€œWe want to make our voices heard against greed, corruption and for a democratic, just society,” Wargalla added.
Aside from protests, the group also organizes workshops, discussion groups and assemblies during the planned protest at the London Stock Exchange. The location was strategic and was chosen because of the increasing irregularity in the financial sector. The OccupyLSX is backed up by big groups in the UK such as UK Uncut and People’s Assemblies Network Global Day of Action.
In the United States, hundreds of street campaigns against corporate domination are all over Manhattan and New York. Wall Street is one strategic area they protested in and the rallies also hit the nationâ€™s capital city.
