(October 5, 2011) Fears expressed by some that the 'Occupy Wall Stree'’ movement is being hijacked by the Democratic Party establishment have intensified after the official OWS website announced that it "stands in solidarity" with MoveOn.org, a lobbying group for the Wall Street-backed Obama administration.
The front page of the http://occupywallst.org/ proudly announces that numerous union groups will be present in New York today to join demonstrators in marches taking place this afternoon.
"Together we will protest this great injustice. We stand in solidarity with the honest workers of...MoveOn.org," states the website, as well as listing numerous other organizations.
What is MoveOn.org?
MoveOn.org is a lobbying organization that routinely backs Democratic candidates. The group aggressively supported Barack Obama’s 2008 election campaign and is now "Perhaps the lead lobby organization for his policies...apart from Obama’s own Organizing for America," reports Source Watch.
