‘This Spring, We‘ll See Action’ Frances Fox Piven Issues Dark Prediction on Occupy Wall Street | TheBlaze.com

According to the Blaze (link below to full story and video).

According to Frances Fox Piven:

The Occupy Wall Street movement is entering the phase where it “makes trouble.”

“We’ll see action against the banks, against the corporations.”

Different forms of protests that will engage many people.

Occupy was helped by “sympathetic” press coverage.

Leftist professor and activist Frances Fox Piven last week predicted the Occupy Wall Street movement is entering the phase where it “makes trouble” and will soon be taking action against banks and other institutions.

“It may well be that the Occupy movement is now in its second phase, in the phase where it makes trouble, in the phase where it threatens to shut down institutions,” Piven said. “The Occupy movement has moved into the neighborhoods of our cities, it has moved into the schools….This spring, we’ll see action against the banks, against the corporations.”

Piven made her comments during a lecture to a group of students at the University of Connecticut last Friday. She touched on the genesis of the Occupy movement, which she said was particularly a result of the financial crisis, which “exposed those in charge of the economy as illegitimate.”

“The people who were sitting on top of the world, the top-tenth of the top 1 percent, were guilty. They were guilty of thievery, of chicanery,” Piven said.
