The tipoff for George Soros’ involvement with the September 17 anti-banker OccupyWallStreet direct action comes by way of , an “Expat activist, lover, info-geek” who is “trying to play [her] role on the #globalrevolution.”1

Khatib wrote yesterday — on behalf of the “citizens and non-citizens” of The General Assembly of New York City — in a Take the Square message, that “One of the first concrete steps we have decided to take is to participate in a global day of action against [the] financial capital on September 17, 2011.”

If you look through this framework you may not see one defined picture. If you walk through it you will be amazed at the strange world on the other side. It is time to take back our lives. We ask you to join us now in New York City or to start your own General Assembly in your own town.

Let’s explore these “demands” one-by-one…
