131. I don't think so.
All revolutions are carried out by a minority of the people. There were tens of thousands of people who shut down the port at Oakland. The police wisely backed off that day. The protest easily cost the economy $1 billion. The longshoreman did not resist it. Costs in police overtime alone were several millions of dollars. Millions of people world wide are protesting the global political and economic status quo. Lots of blood is being shed there. A million people may descent on Washington during demonstrations scheduled of January 17th. This is just the beginning. You can either take a seat or take to the field but don't try to dismiss it. That's what the fawning corporate media is trying so desperately to do. Big mistake.
