Guess What Jon Justice Thinks of Occupy Tucson?

Posted By on Tue, Oct 4, 2011 at 3:00 PM

I'm still a little unclear on the point of Occupy Tucson other than being an outlet for frustration with the financial industry (something I totally understand), but now that Jon Justice is making fun of it, sign me up.

I thought for todays blog I would share with you the start of what I am sure will become a powerful driving force for change here in Tucson. Taking a cue from the Occupy Wall Street Protests, behold.... "Occupy Tucson".

(Or it might just end up being a handful of protestors with signs on a street corner confusing people as they pass by due to their lack of a clear message because even they themselves don't know exactly what they are protesting. But hey who can blame them, because it's fun and cool to protest right?)

This was taken from the comments of the first video.

OccupyTucson.org We are the 99% it's about time we showed 'them' how much power we have.

So if by "power" they mean they have the ability to stand around and look bored then I would say they are right on track. Judging by this awesome video below Tucson better take notice! I mean whoever made the video surely knows what they are doing given the fact that it's got a rocking song in the beginning that drowns any of the inspiring words that I am sure are being spoken. Even after the music is over one must listen close to even make out anything being said. But you see that's where the power of "Occupy Tucson" comes into play. They don't need words to enact change. Witness the people standing around taking up space. Yes! You can see they are indeed "Occupying" an area and while they stand there, no one else can! Are you inspired yet?
