Will the "Occupy Wall Street" crowd attempt to recruit the New York Comic Con crowd next week? Or vice versa? What happens when angst-ridden hipsters encounter angst-ridden cosplayers? One group smells like patchouli and the other, uh, doesn't. (NOTE: "Occupy Wall Street" corrected from "Occupy New York." Oops)

They're not angst-ridden hipsters. Or hippies, for that matter.

Since I'm going to NYCC I'll see. But what on Earth is "Occupy New York"?

it's actually occupy wall street, a movement by regular americans to protest the big spending and ...eccentricities of corporate america, to put it nicely. it's been going on for a while over here in nyc and has recently picked up steam in the american news media, so it's a pretty big deal.

(I am a New Yorker and I have heard a bit about it, just not by that name I suppose) Guess I haven't been paying enough attention (school's a fun distractor like that).

Guess the "angst ridden" hipsters threw me.

Yeah, calling people who are demanding answers and fairness from a bunch who've fucked up the world economy and ruined countless lives 'hipsters'? Kinda arrogant. You could at least get the name right.

There's a lot of misinformation going on around the campaign. :(

Yeah, this. Also, why on earth would they want to recruit cosplayers? That makes no sense.

A lot of cosplayers are pretty cool people, and they certainly can bring attention... ;)

They smell patchouli so obviously they deserve condescension. Let’s all ignore any political argument of relevance!

...it isn't just in New York either. A bunch of my friends are pretty active in Occupy Boston.

I have coworkers who took Friday off to be part of Occupy LA.

They, of course, brought comics to read during the quiet time.

The corporate media is in full swing on this, depicting the protesters as kooks and aging hippies or clueless college kids. Funny how a country that pretty much started with protest street theater (the Boston Tea Party) and progressed to war to throw off their oppressors is so uncomfortable with protest now.

You mean when the media covers them at all. It's been hard to find much information on the protests.

Heck there is/was supposed to be a protest here my home city but heck if I can find much info on THAT.

You are so incredibly misinformed as to the character of the protest, that I don't even know where to begin.

the protest is so completely amorphous that I must disagree with you :)

I suppose the whole thing will gutter out with everyone agreeing that electing "More and Better Democrats™" will magically fix everything.

Pity. :(

Hey, it worked in the 60's. Political pressure from the base is the only thing that can motivate politicians.

New York CIty is so big that the two groups will never see each other. It's amazing, because it's a really big convention. But NYC is so big and busy that NYCC isn't even a blip. Hidden over in the Javits Center, it knows nothing of the City and the City knows nothing of it.

A couple of the more aware creators and fans will go down and take a look at OWS. There will be a few scruffy folks that show up this year because they could use OWS to get out of a hotel bill. That's it.

They are looking to get their message across to corporate and business's, they staying the hell away from places like "Hell's Kitchen" where the Javits is around.
