"They lump us all in For Stuart Ferguson. a resi- dent near Camp Long, this protest evokes the government hypocrisy of the Vietnam War. "I got called up by the Reserves and was sent to Vietnam on a Navy ship" he said. "And we knew it was a joke then when we were on the ship. It was real early in the war. All kinds of traders from France and Canada were going to North Vietnam and we were trying to stop weapons and supplies going down from North Vietnam to South Vietnam, so 50.000 people were killed play- ing a game. "Right now the powers that be are blaming all these problems of the financial system on the work- ing class of America," he added. "Your pensions, high salaries, enti- tlements. Barfl I worked for a pub- lic utility, covered by a union. The unions protected you from killing yourself on the job" He said the crowd of protesters have gotten a bad rap in the media so far. "It started out with what the TV reople like to call 'the hippies,'" and say we need to get a job, take a bath. But it's normal people down here." "We're being screwed over by the American aristocrats, the bankers," said Kaya, a Westwood/Fauntle- roy resident. "I'm here because I'm not a fringe person and I feel there needs to be more main stream peo- ple coming out to protest," "This is the third time I've been down here," said Denise Henrik- son of Westwood. Her handmade scale of justice prop was getting a lot of attention. On one side was a globe. On the other, a big foam dollar sign. "It asks, 'What do we value, our planet, or money?'" she said of her scale. "Not to say they have to be +mutually exclusive. But there are people making so much money at the cost of our planet and all riving things." "I'd like to see the reinstatement of the Glass-Steagall Act," said Brian Lally, a professional sing- er and classical guitar player who lives near Providence Mount St. Vincent. Other protesters held up signs referring to Glass-Steagall. 6 6 It asks, 'What do we value, our planet, or money? 9 Denise Henrikson, Westwood According to Investopedia.com, the Glass-Steagall Act passed by Congress in 1933 prohibited com- mercial banks from collaborating with full-service brokerage firms or participating in investment bank- ing activities. It protected bank depositors from the additional risks associated with security transac- tions. The act was dismantled in 1999. Consequently, the distinc- tion between commercial banks and brokerage firms has blurred; many banks own brokerage firms and provide investment services. 'Td like to see a lot of regu- lation of the derivatives and also futures speculation which inflates the cost of commodities and makes gasoline and food products so high," Lally said. "This causes a detrimental effect around the world because the cost of rice, flour, other food commodities are too expen- sive for people to afford." "I was here last weekend and the weekend before that." said West Seattle's Tiphany Overzat, who wore a belly dancing costume to the protest. Some dancers per- formed. "The banks, and Wall Street should be held accountable for what happened during the eco- nomic crists," she said. "We're sick of bailing them out. We're sick of them being rich off of the backs of the poor and the middle class. The middle class is slowly disap- pearing. If we don't have change soon the middle class will no lon- ger be. We'll just be poor, or rich. I'm from Wichita and grew up on food stamps. My mom was a single mother of three at 37, working a job and trying to finish her educa- tion. Luckily, I am middle class, but I'm here for those people who are poor and don't have medical care," And her dancing outfit? "We'need to lighten the mood a bit, get people smiling, she said. "Music and dance is beautiful and it is all part of the revolution and change." For more information on the pro- tests, visit www.occupyseattle.org.
