occupy-iowaThis time it is The World Food Prize:

Occupy leader Frank Cordaro said the group’s plans during the weeklong Food Prize event are still being put together, but “there will be opportunities for arrest.”

The Occupy movement will target what Cordaro called “the corporate ownership of the World Food Prize, especially its dominance by genetically modified seed interests.”

“Our goal is to get rid of GMOs,” said Cordaro, referencing the term for genetically-modified corn and soybean seeds now in widespread use in Iowa and elsewhere in the U.S.

I have to wonder do most of the people involved really know what they are protesting?  Probably not.  Also don’t think for a moment that Occupy was a grassroots movement.  A new documentary, Occupy Unmasked, premiered at RightOnline last Friday night.  This documentary by filmmaker Stephen Bannon and produced by Citizens United, which features the late Andrew Brietbart, debunked that meme pretty convincingly as they went through the timeline and presented the players involved behind the scenes, for instance, the first Occupy rally initially brought people out with a false promise of a concert.  Was that something reported by the press?  Did the press discuss how the “movement” was bolstered by Big Labor?  The film brings to light aspects about the “movement” that were never reported on by the press.

Here’s the trailer below:

It was an excellent film, and I encourage you to watch it.

Update: Occupy Oakland protests against a conference dedicated to combatting sex trafficking.  Oh they are so full of win.  Further proof that these folks are rebels without a cause. (HT: American Thinker)
