They throw some good squat parties though!
(But they also do alot of damage unfortunaly) Im unsure as to how I feel about the movements as atm they just seem to be such a mish mash of ideals and ideas.

I think this picture pretty much sums up how I feel about the 'movement'.
While I agree that the current system is unfair, the occupy movement hasn't proposed any changes other than "OPPOSE CAPITALISM MAN, FREE STUFF FOR ALL" or whatever, I'm all for change, but a lot of these kids have no idea how the world really works and just want to be part of some big social thing, regardless of how asinine and pointless it is.
Most of these people have the luxury to take time out of work or otherwise to sit around London, drink Starbucks and rebel against daddy, but they're totally the downtrodden poor.

Well at least in America the Occupy movement has been attended by ordinary people, if you look further than the main stream media (which while not directly controlled by the "1%", is more conscious of them). Although in the US the economic recession seems to have affected more people on mid level pay.
Technology means our current means of living won't work, technology means less jobs as there are more automated systems, and it means more scrutiny on both the people in power and the general public. Sometime there'll be a point where the unemployment rate is too high for society continue as it has. If you paid attention in history lessons you see that every so often society changes quite radically.
