"Occupy Wall Street" movement shares reactionary propaganda against Venezuela

The tweet of "Occupy".
The reactionary, imperialist propaganda against Venezuela's government has found new promoters: The famous "Occupy Wall Street" movement seems to be one of them, as long as it uses Twitter in order to share reactionary views about what is happening in Venezuela. 

More specifically, on 12 May 2017, the so-called "resistance movement" shared on Twitter an article of the New York Times titled "Venezuela Tries Protesters in Military Court 'Like We Are in a War'"

Since its establishment in 2011, the "Occupy" movement- a leaderless movement with hazy anticapitalist slogans- tried to absorb popular discontent (especially of the indignant youth) against the system without having a clear ideological basis. 

Many questions have been arised about who has financed this supposed "movement" and why it attracted support from prominent personalities of the U.S. bourgeoisie, from billionaire Warren Buffet to ex-Vice President Al Gore. Do multimillionaires like Buffet or Sorros belong to the...99% of the people who the "Occupy" movement claims it represents? 

The working class, the organised labor movement, the marxists-leninists, must not trust such non-partisan and completely leaderless "movements", like the "Occupy Wall Street" one. After all, history has exposed the actual role of such "movements" as bourgeois fabrications which aim in keeping people, the working class, far from real radicalization and class consciousness.
