  1. Positive Propanda Campaign

    Positive Propaganda Campaign: Encourage everyone to have email signature sign-offs with OWS message, create / print OWS message labels and business cards from home and place everywhere in their communities, order/make ink-stamps with OWS messages and stamp on all postage-paid inserts people get in junk mail, magazines, etc. PLUS!!

      • Website where everyone can post videos expressing their ideals

        We should create a website where everyone has the opportunity to share their ideas via video. It allows people who cannot physically attend protests to show they stand for the cause, keeps everyone out of harm's way, and is a peaceful way to allow us to stand our ground. This can be used to allow everyone the opportunity to share their ideas for change, enlighten the world of our individualistic and collective ideals, and help push the initiative to fathom our demands. Each video should include at least a first name, location, and a brief synoptic text underneath to give…

        • A protest completely devoted to Grover Norquist and his Taxpayer Protection Pledge. This pledge is antequated and evil.

          238 of 242 House Republicans and 41 out of 47 Senate Republicans have signed the "Taxpayer Protection Pledge". The pledger promises to oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates.

          Norquist's position on tax increases implies that even deficit reduction agreements that are dominated by, but are not entirely, spending cuts should be rejected (since such agreements include some element of increased tax revenue), he has been identified by some policy makers as an obstacle to deficit reduction. Norquist's influence on Gov't Deficit Reduction's lack of progress is…

          • Remember that non-violence includes not yelling.

            Words can be violent too. Silence is powerful. Singing is powerful. PEACE is powerful.

            • Outflank the police

              The police focus on the "core" of the protest. I suggest groups of 3-5 protestors skirt around the police as they skirt the protest caring interesting signs and engaging the public. The public tends to be in the same area behind the riot cops. If maybe 50 small groups outflanked the police, the protest would be harder to contain, and the message would be more intermingled with the populace. I had great conversations with people using this method, and laughed and spread the love, while avoiding the ugly scene of the black army.

                • Get your local occupation, outreach programs, non-profits, and charities together and start a local FM radio station.

                  This will show everyone that OWS is not a bunch of lazy bums. Show our solidarity with giving and spread awareness.

                  • Occupy Every Corner. Stand on the corners of any street you can find. Use finger Ws to or flash 9 fingers twice.

                    Target population and large neighborhood centers. Bring signs. When the signs are taken away. Flash the letter W with your fingers. Flash 9 fingers twice to show support for the OWS. The best part is.. when they ask you to leave, do it. Find another corner.

                        • Organize and intentional "Arrest us ALL" occupation at Zuccoti Park with the sole purpose of forcing Bloomberg/NYPD to arrest thousands

                          Intentionally organize a day of "Arrest us ALL" to get thousands to go to Zuccoti Park and MAKE Bloomberg/NYPD to arrest thousands and thousands of people. Just be peaceful. Peacefully set up tents and just say YOU WILL NEED TO ARREST US ALL....guess what....they won't be able to because they won't have enough room in the jails nor the police resources to keep up.

                            The root of almost all of our problems is special interest money in politics. see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1B5hn3Tnog
                            91% of us want it fixed, as does the Occupy Movement, as does the Tea Party. Lets show solidarity, and invite all of America to attend.

                            • include more musicians

                              i think music plays one of the largest roles in happiness and knowledge and personal growth. i think if more musicians, bands, artists, dj's, ect ect become apart of this then spreading this message of evolution will become more elaborate and reach many more people. theres musicians constantly traveling all over the world playing different shows everyday, the more they know the more others will hear it!

                                    • Include citizens that support the movement but can't get out to protests.

                                      There is power in numbers but when the majority of the population can't get out to these protests, they still should have a voice. Advertise written petitions or letters to officials that folks can pick up at the general assemblies which cover grievances that citizens are demanding to be addressed. Make them bright yellow and have the official's offices flooded with these "high alert" demands. Many people support the cause that don't have a "voice" and we need to find ways to incorporate more of the 99%.

                                        We spell out global change with our bodies in every city at the same time and do it on globalrevolution.tv.
