Something that I noticed while researching critiques of the movement was that there was a major demand for demands by the media from the OWS partakers. I would say leaders instead of partakers, but OWS is a leaderless organization, which makes it even harder to have demands. Finally, after much scrutiny, a major branch of OWS did release official demands, in addition to the already existing declaration. However, after the demands were released, the media mostly only replied with a further distaste for the movement, basically calling the demands outlandish. Now, I did not expect the media not to critique the demands, but I thought they would have been a little happier that at least a part of the movement was being clear about their intentions. I do agree that some of the demands are a bit far-fetched, but as I have stated many times, the form of protest that OWS has mostly chosen does not necessarily believe in stating demands as an appeal. Following this theme, the demands that were released are not so much an appeal but are instead outlining direct major changes to the system. This reminded me of a post that Sam made (click here to read it) about whether or not the mainstream media is against OWS, and I am starting to agree. I have attached several articles about the perceived ridiculousness of the demands, what do you think?
