    • "OCCUPY AMERICA"

      Forgive the all caps, as a artist, all caps is seen as elegant beauty... Not anger!

      PLEASE READ... "OCCUPY AMERICA"

      WHEN I THINK OF THE MIDDLE CLASS ALL OVER AMERICA, I FEEL THE SENSE OF DESPAIR, ESPECIALLY WHEN I SEE A FAMILY LIVING OUT OF THEIR CAR OR TRUCK. I RECENTLY RAN INTO A MAN LIVING OUT OF HIS TRUCK SELLING HIS LAST SOURCE OF MATERIAL HOLDING... HIS BASEBALL CARD COLLECTION!

      • Occupy the Subway

        On November 17th, we rightly pulled back from “shutting down the subways,” instead sharing personal stories through the Peoples’ Mic. On December 10th we would like to launch a more decentralized a campaign to occupy the subways in a consistent and organized manner, focused on regular and systematic actions. The focus will be on individual cars, with small teams engaging riders in a few minutes of information sharing and dialogue, would allow a few dozen activists working a few hours a day to quickly reach many thousands of ordinary people who only know about #OWS through the mainstream media. A…

          The arts group has done alot for OWS....why not pick a bankster ceo as Scrooge? The 99% as Bob Hatchett family.....Ghosts/past/present/future....

          Just watched George C Scotts portrayal.....couldn't help but think of the parallels running through this timeless classic to our present day situations.

          • Implement Direct Democracy Starting in Our Communities--Network Globally

            Our movement needs to gain credibility among those who have born the brunt of capitalism's most disastrous economic crisis yet but may have felt socially, geographically, racially, or otherwise excluded from the surge of activism that took place earlier this year. Those of us who are already deeply invested in the Occupy movement can start by talking to our neighbors and working with them to create General Assemblies in our neighborhoods, towns, and villages. This Saturday, lets launch thousands of these GA's, throughout the United States and around the world, so as to coordinate and draw attention to our efforts…

            • Encourage everyone to ignore the illegally enacted 16th amendment and not file federal income taxes in 2012

              Amendment 16

              Income taxes

              "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.
              February 3, 1913.

              This law:
              1. UNCONSTITUTIONAL(un-apportioned taxes are illegal)
              2. was NEVER properly ratified by the states. therefore not valid
              Lets show our government that we will no longer tolerate fraud and manipulation by ignoring this imaginary law. By standing up to this wrong we can begin to work to rebuild a nation that has been infiltrated by criminals residing within the 1%.

              • Make a General Occupy Assembly in front of the White House

                One of the most often made critic to the occupy movement is that the protesters don't know what they want. Perhaps it's time to show that those who support the movement know exactly what they want, and what they want is what the movement does within itself: real democracy through assemblies. And what better way to tell the government and everyone else what we want than SHOWING it to them? Let's show them how we think democracy is done: let's give them OUR class on democracy. The movement wants what the movement does: and the best synthesis there is of…

                • Organize Busses & Carpools to transport interested 'occupiers' to the main regional movements; centralize our forces.

                  Especially in North America, population densities across the country are relatively low. We're already 'divided & conquered' by default. If Washington DC is the ultimate occupation, start by mobilizing all occupiers, nationwide to regional 'strongholds', leading up to the eventual mass-migration to DC.

                  • DO NOT COMPLY

                    solidarity instead of money,love instead of fear, following your own intuition instead of sheepishly following the ideas of others(turn off the tv!)acting for something instead of against
                    i value the occupy movement for waking people up,but somehow i know we are all one,and for me protesting against somebody still expresses fear,making me incapable of love.if we manage to elevate our own conciousness we will elevate others,even the one percent!

                    • Flashmob Protest with Random Dance/Improv/Singing Ridiculous Humor

                      The police at a recent SF Occupy showdown were barking orders and marching in military formations obviously designed to be intimidating - as soon as they made it around the corner they broke off their marches.

                      So, let's do the same. Lots and lots of people mingling around...[on que - say a txt or something], jump into formation, bark a coordinated intimidating sound....then Waltz, or dance the electric slide, or something silly....then just stop and continue where the protest left off, or even better - disperse peacefully and randombly.....and reorganize in another location about 20 minutes later....

                      and repeat.

                        • Flood the news paper adds, radio broadcasts, and/or any kind of forum with facts/statistics, 99% stories, and involvement information.

                          Spreading the word and desire to the affected 99% is the only way to secure the future of the Occupy movement. Currently the support is determined but only a mere fraction of the population. We need to unify and pull in support from the individual who are in denial about the reality of the issues faced by the great majority of the country. The citizens of this country have long since forgotten what it means to be here, that we are a people of choice and duty and that when their is a discrepancy of this magnitude between citizens, there…

                            As we take December 10 to remember the human rights and freedoms we are entitled to, it is impossible to not feel how far we have fallen from our ideals of 63 years ago.

                            The 11th of January 2012 is the tenth anniversary of the opening of the Guantanamo Bay black hole, a place that has incarcerated 22 children, the centrepiece for the Bush regime's reinstatement of torture, and an anti-judicial experiment that has culminated this month in a bill before the US senate which proposes that US citizens should be subjected to trial by army and indefinite preventive detainment;…

                                National Initiative is the US citizen's tool to make laws and policy. It is petitions with registered voters signatures, submitted legally to make sure that the people's choice is heard. Petitions are not just used to sway political opinion, they can MAKE things happen. National Initiative can be used to STOP a government whose checks & balances have gotten swept aside. The Occupy Movement needs to use National Initiative to create the legal procedures necessary to get this country back on track.

                                  Step one is for everyone in the movement to become a registered voter. Step two is to research what recall petitions are all about. Step three is to get all the necessary signatures. Step four is to use the petition on NYC's mayor; after which you speak to his replacement and demand the firing of the police commissioner and all cops who "happily" did a job on the protesters. Use that as an object lesson for the rest of the states, and once you're moving you then move on the politicians higher up. But make sure you're not available for…

                                    • Boycott Cooper Tire and Rubber Company

                                      Cooper Tire has locked-out 1100 employees because we would not take a cut in pay up to 40% so the Corporate Monsters can made their millions in bonuses. Boycott this company because the tires will be made with unskilled labor and could very well be very dangerous tires.We are fighting back and all your local factories are the next in line to try to cut wages for GREEDS sake. Now is the time to stop these companies from putting American Families in the poor house.

                                        • Encourage people to not purchase gas or drive that week - no money for big oil

                                          Encourage people to not purchase gas or not drive that week. It may create long lines at the pump the week before and no sales the week of.
