The Bonus Army Occupies Again as the Universal Underworld Ends


Update: October 27, 2011: SPECIAL: Just before we move into last day of the Universal Underworld and connect with 13 Ahau - Of course don't expect some cinematic event like a mass ascension or pole shift since this shift of
consciousness is subtle yet effective.
Diverting from any debate on the end of the Unity Wave and the next phase to come
let's focus on current events and their reflection in history: I found this big bold overview or overwritten article by Frank Rich in the New York Magazine describing OWS Movement-Capitalism-Banking Class. His article entitled The Class War Has Begun
The Bonus Army veterans stage a mass vigil on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol in 1932.
It is not a new idea of looking at similarities with the events of the Great Depression and the current jobless recession. Back in those days as it was the Bonus Army echoing the OWS movement and the parallels are drawn with the news from Tues. Night # Occupy Oakland events: Iraq War Vet Hospitalized with Fractured Skull After Being Shot by Police at Occupy Oakland Protest. In fact the "Bonus Army" was the popular name of an assemblage of some 43,000 marchers including 17,000 World War I veterans, their families, and affiliated groups—who gathered in Washington, D.C., in the spring and summer of 1932. They had a specific demand to receive immediate cash-payment redemption of their service certificates. Now in 2011, the Occupy movement is all over the US and parts of the world. Yes we are channeling the collective events of 1932 per the ongoing Uranus-Pluto transits. Back in 1932 Pluto was transiting in Cancer and square Uranus in Aries (just like today except now Pluto is in political Capricorn).
Looking back to July 28, 1932, after Attorney General William D. Mitchell ordered the police to remove the Bonus Army veterans from their camp.
Back then two cornered policeman drew their revolvers and shot two veterans, William Hushka and Eric Carlson, who died later.
In fact a chart set @ 4:45 PM on July 28, 2011 shows a Grand Mutable Square with Sagittarius rising @ 26 degrees with this Sabian: A flag bearer in battle.
Plus ruler of this attack chart was Jupiter posited in the 8th house of trouble and death closely square Chiron and Vesta in hard charging, stubborn Taurus.
In the chart above Mars (aggression) was in Gemini (posited in the 6th house of civil servants and the military) being in close opposition to the ascendant meaning open aggression. Significantly the Moon's Nodes in Pisces and Virgo were crossed by Pallas in Sagittarius (risk taking strategy) opposing the Moon in Gemini near Astraea demanding justice. Relating to yesterday's New Moon we see fixed signs in opposition - back in 1932 it was Sun in Leo opposing Saturn in Aquarius which is always known for authority conflicts and rigidity/inflexibility.
Is resonates somewhat to the Mars (Leo) Opposition to Neptune (Aquarius) relating to the 2011 movement where ideals are driving action. Back then Pluto was also close to a square with Uranus in aggressive Aries so extremes were the rule.
Attorney General William D. Mitchell had ordered the removal of their camp.
Then Gen. Douglas MacArthur, the 12th Infantry Regiment, Fort Howard, Maryland, and the 3rd Cavalry Regiment supported by by six battle tanks commanded by Maj. George S. Patton charged on the veterans.

Frank Rich starts out with echoes of 1932:
During the death throes of Herbert Hoover’s presidency in June 1932, desperate bands of men traveled to Washington and set up camp within view of the Capitol. The first contingent journeyed all the way from Portland, Oregon, (Sounds a lot like the traveling/gypsy lifestyle that has sprung up for the OWS Movement.

He goes on to say " but others soon converged from all over—alone, in groups, with families—until their main Hooverville on the Anacostia River’s fetid mudflats swelled to a population as high as 20,000. The men, World War I veterans who could not find jobs, became known as the Bonus Army—for the modest government bonus they were owed for their service. Under a law passed in 1924, they had been awarded roughly $1,000 each, to be collected in 1945 or at death, whichever came first. But they didn’t want to wait any longer for their pre–New Deal entitlement—especially given that Congress had bailed out big business with the creation of a Reconstruction Finance Corporation earlier in its session. Father Charles Coughlin, the populist “Radio Priest” who became a phenomenon for railing against “greedy bankers and financiers,” framed Washington’s double standard this way: “If the government can pay $2 billion to the bankers and the railroads, why cannot it pay the $2 billion to the soldiers?”
