I'm not supporting it, and I'm not against it. It's just getting annoying for it to be everywhere lately. Feels almost like the latest fad for younger people.

That's weird. It's not a "fad" where I live. Either way, it's a great way for young people to learn/delve into a different spectrum of politics.

Basically, a lot of very affluent, white, Jewish people (similar to myself) just go down just to see the protests. It almost feels like people are going to the protests just to say they're protesting. Kind of similar to the whole hippie movement, from what I know about it.

Seeing and participating in are two very different things.

i agree. i see people who have not the slightest clue about politics make statuses and link to news stories and youtube vids about it just trying to seem hip and act like they know what they're talking about

Perhaps there are some of those, but that doesn't define it as a whole. Sorry, but there's a lot of people and younger kids doing tons of noteworthy work on it out there.

of course i didn't mean everyone but it definitely is one of those things where people will jump on ship just to say they were part of something or try to act like they're so cultured when they don't even know what they are actually supporting/talking about. occupy wall street bandwagoners if you will. i know there's people who actually care and are trying to work for improvement and actually care deeply about the movement, i'm not talking about them ones.
