The online terrorist group called “Anonymous” has released a video that states that they will interfere with Toronto mayor Rob Fords decision to evict the protesters in Toronto. They have also said that they will delete anyones existence on the internet, if they choose to interfere. Anonymous has proven before how powerful they truly are. They had crashed the Playstation 3 network last year because one of their users had been perminatly kicked off of the online game play, and to get back at Sony they crashed the whole network.
The actions that Anonymous are planing on taking seem a little extreme. They do want to make a serious point, but they are scaring a lot of people. I get that scaring the people is what will get a serious reaction, but we don’t want people living in fear. If the Anonymous do follow through with their original plan, it could cause an up roar with citizens of Toronto. Nothing good can come from the outcome of this event.
Hopefully the occupiers start fading away, and people return to their normal lives. But in reality that isnt going to happen. These next couple months could be rough for the people of Toronto.
Occupy Toronto has been going on since the end of september. They now have seemed to form their own colony, making libraries, grocery stores and even a “police” station. They claim that they are the 99% of people who aren’t being treated fairly in modern-day society, and that the 1% is the upper scale, high-class, business people who are getting in the way of all their dream jobs. For now lets call them hippies. The hippies think that sitting in a park, holding up miss spelt, and grammatically incorrect signs is the best way to get their message across. Surely the government will acknowledge this intelligence and do something about it. Sadly these “hippies” just keep sitting their, having their peaceful protest.
Going back to the article about “Dont Follow Your Dreams”, it talks about how in today’s society, young people just expect big important jobs to be handed to them with no effort involved. These occupiers are doing exactly that. They are waiting for “The Man” to come down and hand them all their dream jobs. Most of these people probably have a good education, and even a post secondary education, but their not applying them self out in the world. It almost seems like their being counter productive. The occupiers have been in Toronto for a month and some odd days, and yet they still don’t have a unified message. “We have come together to find solutions to the difficulties we are facing in society today. We have not yet put out a unified message but be sure it will come.” I took that statement straight from the Occupy Toronto website. Just below that statement is another one talking about why they are their and what they want to achieve with the protest. Having looked over both statements, it seems like they have some flaws. Some people are confused as to what they are protesting for and others seem to know exactly what they want out of it.
The point I am trying to get across is that if the 99% of population is putting all their time and effort into this protest, why couldn’t they do the same for finding a job, or creating a job that will help with the issues that are being protested. Sitting around with signs isn’t going to give them instant results, they need to face the issues head on.
The video I attached below includes interviews of some of the protesters at Occupy Toronto. Have your own oppinion about the issue.
