DOWN TWINKLES – Occupy Wall Street Leaders Sue Each Other For CASH
It turns out the Occupy movement – which we were told was a completely organic grass roots organization – had organizers who are now suing each other for big bucks.
The People Who Organized Occupy Wall Street Are Now Suing Each Other
Activists who organized the dormant Occupy Wall Street movement are suing another activist for control of the main Twitter account, and one of the plaintiffs says there was no other option but to turn to litigation to solve the dispute.
The conflict centers around @OccupyWallStNYC, one of the main Twitter feeds that distributed information during the movement’s heyday in 2011. The OWS Media Group filed a lawsuit against organizer Justin Wedes on Wednesday, which is also the third anniversary of the beginning of Occupy Wall Street. The group, led by activist Marisa Holmes, is seeking control of the Twitter account as well as $500,000 in damages.
500,000 dollars? I thought the Occupy movement didn’t care about money.
