Occupy Cisco, who knew?

It's on like Donkey Kong.... Not only are the 99% pissed and ready to give the Banksters etc what they did (and continue to do via their paid-for-pals in the three branches of this co-opted three ringed circus) to us so are we ready to give it back to them worldwide.

Some brilliant river goddess brought the issue to the ramp at Cisco. I never got a chance to thank you.

Here are pics of the folks there at the time in support of the truth.

For those who are part of the 1%, remember that most of us carry guns and know where you live! Run like you meant it, bitches...

Not sure if river people are considered in any of the occupy statistics.
Occupying Cisco would do more to threaten the bottom .05% than the top 1%. Just a safe place to make no point at all. And Mbuzz an even safer place to make your demands...

How wrong you are! We shut down Cisco for several hours. Cisco. Think again about the power of that. Wall Street held its breath, Tokyo was on the edge of its seat, and the Saudis doubled down on groover futures.

Take a stand. In the middle of nowhere. In the center of everything.

Do the photos of people standing on the side of a parking lot need to bump actual boating pictures though??

Nice face-palm and doobage photos. Heh, I know some of these people. They never struck me as particularly revolutionary. Things change after a couple floats through the fabled westwater canyon, I suppose.

Wellll... we at least shut down the take out ramp- it was a mess- I'm surprised there were no fender benders there.

I like the slogan though.

Here's my thinking- while "Occupying Cisco" may not have a huge effect on the movement, the idea was that as rafters, most of us are part of the 99%, and we boycott "Wall Street" and consumerism every time we drop out for the weekend or longer where there are no stores and we co-habitate with fellow rafters and we share food, booze, gas, and stories.

Besides, it's funny.
