The protest as it stands today emerged from a heady mix of Anonymous‘ hacker libertarianism, Adbusters‘ media-savvy culture of art student resistance, and the indigenous post-1960s American far-left which was raised on a steady diet of Food Not Bombs, Critical Mass, and anarchist infoshops.

They are not shy about telling everyone what they want to do. It’s all there. If there’s any doubt, just look at the groups, organizations, individuals, philosophy, and actions of this “movement”.
