Over the course of the last few weeks, the Occupy Wall Street protests have increased in size and volume, and have been given generous attention by a sympatheticmainstream media. A number of media outlets have attempted to present the demonstrators as merely disgruntled Americans who are unhappy with the current plight of the American economy, despite evidence that the protests have been staged by Marxists, socialists, unions, and other left-wing organizations with intents greater than merely bringing light to the struggle of the average American. For those behind the demonstrations — though not necessarily the demonstrators themselves — the goal is in fact to bring about global government. Prior to the start of the Occupy Wall Street protests, which began October 15, the UNPA Campaign — the Establishment of a United Nations Parliamentary Assembly — reports that a group of leftists “issued a manifesto that includes a strong call for global democracy and, in particular, democratic rule over the international financial system.” The manifesto has the support of the UNPA Campaign, as it calls for the “democratizing” of globalist networks such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, the European Central Bank, and the UN Security Council. The manifesto claims, “Undemocratic international institutions are our global Mubarak, our global Assad, our global Gaddafi. Like Mubarak and Assad, these institutions must not be allowed to run people’s lives without their consent. We are all born equal, rich or poor, woman or man. Every African and Asian is equal to every European and American. Our global institutions must reflect this, or be overturned.” Calls for global democracy have been heard at a number of OWS protests across the nation. Advertisements announcing the OWS protest in Los Angeles, for example, asserted:
United for Global Democracy. On October 15, 2011, united in our diversity, united for global change, we demand global democracy, global governance by the people for the people, inspired by our sisters and brothers in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Bahrain, Palestine-Israel, Spain, and Greece, we too call for a regime change, a global regime change, today we demand replacing the G8 with the whole of humanity, the G7,000,000,000.
