Occupy protesters vacate Las Vegas camp (Forum)

By Kristi Jourdan LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL Posted: Feb. 20, 2012 | 8:46 p.m. The tents are gone. So are the portable toilets. The tiny parking lot tucked away on Paradise Road near the airport was at the center of controversy when Clark County officials allowed Occupy Las Vegas protesters to camp there. They called it Area 99. It was a place for supporters in the movement to voice their opinions about corporate greed and influence in politics. Then the homeless came, and the occupation site seemed to transform into an extension of social services as the protesters tried to connect the poor with resources in between camp meetings about foreclosures, unemployment and the 99 percent. Then most of the protesters left.

Occupy Las Vegas cleans up camp as permit expires (Forum)

Reported by: Sergio Avila | MyNews3 LAS VEGAS (AP) — Occupy Las Vegas demonstrators have been cleaning up a vacant lot after their Clark County-approved lease on the property expired. County officials notified the protesters they needed to leave the 2.5 acre site near McCarran International Airport and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, by 5 p.m. Monday. The group's website says members voted weeks earlier to leave the site without resistance when the permit expired. The permit issued in October allowed demonstrators to set up camp as long as they provided portable restrooms and met other conditions.

Regarding the Jan 7 Foreclosure Action (Forum)

I just got a call from "Marina" at Fox5. She wanted to know if I had any information on tomorrow's planned Foreclosure Actions. I explained to her that I was not part of the group organizing that event, and laid out the 15-second elevator speech about occupylasvegas.org and occupylv.org. She already knew. ;-) She said she called me because the other group is "hard to get a hold of". She then asked again if I had any information on the FC action. I told her what we know from the archived livestreams. Yes it is happening, and it will take place at multiple locations, but no, the addresses have not been released yet due to security concerns. Her reply was "That makes sense". Over and out!

Occupy Spokesmen Education? (Forum)

Thoughts on the Occupy Movement: Forgive me for being so direct, but I've hardly heard it utter a single reasonable sentence so far. It's all vague criticism of capitalism, markets and the market economy in general.~ Former Deutsche Bank CEO Hilmar Kopper Source While this may infuriate members of Occupy, I think it is worth considering that speaking with knowledge, rather than emotional reactions, is worthwhile in such a gigantic fight for change.

NV Energy users to pay more starting Jan. 1 (KSNV MyNews3) (Forum)

By Cy Ryan | Las Vegas Sun CARSON CITY – The state Public Utilities Commission authorized NV Energy to raise its rates, with the increase on an average single-family home in Las Vegas an estimated 10-11 percent. The electric utility had sought an increase of more than 20 percent. After hearing protests from a handful of customers, the commission voted to allow the rates to take effect Jan. 1. The rate increase for commercial customers will be 7 percent or less because commercial customers have been subsidizing residential customers. The goal of the company and the commission is to eliminate commercial subsidies to residential customers.

Occupy group holding vigil for police shooting victims (Forum)

By Jason R. Latham, Continuous News Manager - LAS VEGAS (FOX5) Members of Occupy Las Vegas plan to hold a candlelight vigil outside of Metro police headquarters on Monday to protest what they claim is excessive force used by police against unarmed citizens. The vigil was announced in the wake of the Dec. 11 shooting of Stanley Gibson, a Gulf War veteran shot by police at the Alondra condominiums in northwest Las Vegas. "From coast to coast, Americans are keeping a tearful and watchful eye on police departments nationwide due to their ever-escalating use of excessive force against unarmed individuals and groups," Occupy Las Vegas said in a statement.

Facebook Ad (Forum)

I've placed a Facebook Ad today that is scheduled to run through January 19th and is targeted at any person who is over the age of 13 and lives within 25 miles of Las Vegas with a limit of 5,000 impressions (views of the ad) per day. Facebook tells me that the amount of people this ad can reach is 1,239,140 users - but it will only hit 5,000 a day and times that by 30 days = 150,000 people will potentially see it.

Is Obama co-opting the Occupy Movement? (Forum)

. . . . In the same Kansas town President Teddy Roosevelt gave his New Nationalism speech over 100 years ago, President Obama made a speech intended to take up the same theme today (December 6, 2011). Is President Obama trying to co-opt the Occupy Movement, or is he just trying to avoid a speeding train? If he manages to avoid getting hit by the train would that be a positive or negative development, and positive or negative for whom? Is his speech just the opening salvo of what are sure to be repeated attempts to motivate voters for the 2012 election cycle?

Ninety-Nine Percent Gone? (Forum)

By Bob Whitby | November 11th, 2011 [...] What happened was, perhaps, sadly inevitable given the nature of group dynamics. It’s a long, convoluted tale with way more back-and-forth than anyone outside of the argument wants to hear, but it boils to this: A small group took control of the empty lot, dubbed Area 99, and other people didn’t like that. Occupy as a rule is a leaderless, non-hierarchical movement that runs on the often-maddening idea that everyone gets a turn with the talking stick. When someone steps up to exert control over that process, there goes your democracy. [source]

For the rest until someone's stuck a silver stake through Righthaven go to the LVRJ website and read it there. Needless to say Mr. Sisolak is not happy and as a certain someone who shall not be named said out loud on the first night I went to Area99, it was Mr. Sisolak who made Area99 happen. In short....while they won the PR battle they may have lost the war and Area99 may be going goodbye shortly.

Some Background on that "Shoot To Kill Media" ad with Occupy Vegas on it for no apparent reason (Forum)

The ad depicted a cartoonish pistol (probably a nerf gun) with the words "Shoot To Kill Media" under it. It also had "Occupy Vegas" underneath that image, although there didn't appear to be any relation to the occupy movement anywhere else in the ad. -------------------------------

Infighting threatens Occupy Las Vegas movement (Las Vegas Review-Journal) (Forum)

But the Occupy Las Vegas movement seems to have lost focus as it has grown, with its message plagued by squabbling among protesters that caused the group to split up. OccupyLV was formed earlier this week by protesters formerly associated with the encampment on a 1.4-acre swath of county land between Paradise Road and Swenson Street.
