MEDIA ROOTS- Abby & Robbie Martin cover the Occupy Wall Street movement: Bay Area activism compared to other cities nationwide, the divide and conquer tactics being used to discredit OWS, the different schools of thought and ideology within the movement and the original demands made by the US Day of Rage; the Obama administration’s shocking crackdown on medical marijuana and new federal law banning medical marijuana card holders from owning firearms within their homes and apartments; Blackwater and the privatization of the armed forces: is the corporatization of the US military what is preventing an anti-war rebellion similar to that seen in the 60s?
