Our Solution Revolution

Posted: May 23, 2012 in Uncategorized

The international Occupy movement in protest against social and economic inequality is nothing more than a distant memory in many parts of North America. But in Germany, things are only getting started. Dubbed the “Their Crisis Our Solution Revolution”, the demonstration is slated to run from May 12 to August 4th.

On a recent trip to Germany, I had the opportunity to witness one of the demonstrations in Frankfurt, Germany. Some six thousand police equipped with riot gear were employed to watch over the huge crowd that had formed in the city’s main banking district. And to the best of my knowledge, the demonstration was without out incident.

Unlike the Occupy movement in Vancouver, the level of frustration and resentment individuals have with financial institutions seemed much higher. And considering the dire political and financial crisis in Europe, a revolution may  very well be on the horizon.
