OccupyWallSt.org is prepared to help. Our website gets ~300,000 visitors a day and we are ready to make a very strong
statement against any group attempting to drown out the voices of the people. This movement will be co-opted over our dead bodies.

top MoveOn leaders / executives are all over national television speaking for the movement. Saying We, We, We, We and directing people to OccupyWallStreetEvents.com, which redirects to the DailyKos.
again, fully appreciate the help and support of MoveOn, but the MSM is clearly using them as the spokespeople for OWS. I just had an off-record discussion w/ NBC executives who say that other news execs there plan to use them to divide the movement. This is an blatant attempt to fracture the 99% into a Democratic Party organization. The leadership of MoveON and the Daily Kos are Democratic Party operatives. They do a lot of great work, but they are divide and conquer pawns. For years they ignored Wall Street protests to keep complete focus on the Republicans, in favor of Goldman's Obama and Wall Street's Democratic leadership.
if anyone at Move On or Daily Kos would like to have a public debate about these comments, we invite it.
if MoveOn leaders / executives are going to keep going on National TV to speak for OWS, we need them to make a clear statement.
please urgently propose that statement or a plan to call them out in an effective way.
know there are some people who think any attempts at co-option will be unsuccessful, and there is some truth to that, but we can't let blatant co-option attempts continue w/out a response. the longer we remain silent as people get on national tv claiming to speak for and lead the movement, the more damage will be done.
