Peter Joseph: Message to Occupy Wall Street & The World - translation problems

1)
00:00:26,395 -->00:00:32,071
(Journalist) I think if you put every single left-wing cause
into a blender and hit power, this is the sludge you'd get.

What is the meaning of "every single left-wing cause"? Every single idea, related to left-wing politics?

2)
00:01:19,874 --> 00:01:24,616
police brutality and violent outbreaks are unfortunately occurring in pockets

What is the meaning of "occurring in pockets"? Happening in some places?

3)
00:02:31,876 --> 00:02:40,620
If you, the police, expect the crowd not to be violent
then a concerted effort to withhold your communication of it, is required.

What is the meaning of "to withhold your communication of it"?

4)
00:06:19,194 --> 00:06:34,764
Either way, these global representatives would need to prepare
a 'World Occupy Conference' at a set location for the media to digest
where reform issues are presented, hence pushing recognition
by the political establishment and the public.

What is the meaning of "at a set location for the media to digest"?

5)
00:06:34,904 -->00:06:45,164
In the case of reform, this is where each regional group gains recognition
and organizes themselves to be able to engage
their country-specific, governmental bodies.

What is the meaning of "recognition"?

What is the meaning of "every single left-wing cause"? Every single idea, related to left-wing politics?

In this context, a 'cause' refers to 'something' that a person or group wishes to 'fix' in some way. So then, this means every single 'cause' that is related to left-wing politics.

What is the meaning of "occurring in pockets"? Happening in some places?

Yes, that is a very common way to phrase it.

What is the meaning of "to withhold your communication of it"?

This is asking members of police and riot control teams to not approach such crowds anticipating and instigating violence with the violence that they often exhibit themselves. Pushing activists, for example, is more likely to bring about escalating anger and frustration from them than anything else, even if they are striving to experience a non-violent rally or protest.

What is the meaning of "at a set location for the media to digest"?

It is suggesting that global representatives set a single location/gathering, so that media representatives can all come together with them in order to 'digest' (take in/learn) all details of each agreed upon reform proposal being made by the global Occupy movement.

What is the meaning of "recognition"?

That each local/regional group would need to establish a distinct area within the conference space to allow their relevant governmental representatives to meet with (recognize) them for the purpose of discussing the agreed upon reform proposals that apply specifically to their own government. As an example, Occupy representatives for Occupy Chile will need dedicated space for their own conference with representatives of the Chilean government to work out issues that are local to that country, even though all of the Occupy representatives are also striving to create a better world beyond their particular country's borders.
