Human rights defenders on streets mulitiplying, potentiality to start a new government, a new world
Corporate greed and wars abroad are primary issues human rights defenders by the thousands, and “multiplying,” are protesting according to Mondays report by ABC News and the Press TV interview with political analyst and human rights defender Don DeBar in New York who says potentiality of the people’s movement is high due to the new government being formed at the occupations on fertile soil of human need.
“Don DeBar says the protests are growing and their potentiality is high,” Press TV reported Monday morning after DeBar spent Sunday afternoon at Zucotti Park encampment in Manahattan’s fincancial district filming the sights and sounds there.

“The protest down there has doubled within the last week,” DeBar said.
Not only the growth is impressing DeBar. So are the demands.
“The demands are shaping up,” he told Press TV. “Clearly anti-war, anti corporate, and, I would say, anti-capitalism.”
DeBar says that as socio-economic conditions continue worsening in the United States, the city occupations, now well over 200 according to Occupy Everthing, have the potential to be “game-changers.”
ABC News reported Monday that the Occupy Wall Street protests are “multiplying,” both in the United States and overseas.
“There is something that’s bubbling, something that’s happening, there is a youthful involvement here,” a New York activist told ABC News about the protests that its reports have “spread to cities across the country such as Seattle, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Austin, Texas.”
“There is an energy that might lead to something big. I’m hopeful,” the activist said.
DeBar said that, considering “the historical context, this alternative government structure being assembled by the people at the grassroots level,” the potentiality for a new government by the people is there and the soil is fertile for it.
