You just cannot argue with actual video footage of "occupy" members who declare themselves to be socialists as they block streets and leave piles of their trash almost everywhere they have been.
When a video documents the facts (700 arrests for blocking traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge) then that video is serving a valuable purpose for those of us who don't pay much attention to the East coast news.
Likewise, when a female interviewer asks a group of protesters why they are there--and the answer is "...for $60 dollars a day." at about the 31:24 mark. Just prior to that another protester at the event doesn't know what her sign says or how it applies.
This documentary could have been done better by just a few interviews with the people in Portland that had to tear down the filthy tents and wash off the human urine and feces from the street- -or even those who had to treat the increased rat problem (at about 41:35).
It's not a perfect video, but a little investigation into this 'movement' and you will have a good overview of their philosophy and purpose.
