  1. Promote making charitable contributions rather than purchasing Christmas gifts - the more money donated, the less money goes to corporations

    Making charitable contributions rather than purchasing Christmas gifts should be promoted for that week. A website could be set up allowing people to click on the organization they want to donate to and a mechanism should be set up to receive charitable contributions that will then be passed along to those organizations. The website can be used to sum all contributions with the idea being that the more money goes to charities, the less money is used for purchasing merchandise.

        • Talk to your neighbor day about Occupy and what it means to them.

          I think that many people do not know much about the Occupy Movement except what they see on TV. We know how much truth there is on TV, very low, close to absolute zero. The more people know about the real movement as opposed to the talking heads, the more we can marginalize them. The tail wagging the dog is about to come to and end.

                    Please join us in creating a Cross-town March on Saturday December 10th! The march will reclaim 24th Street as our main North-South artery. It will begin at two locations in North and South Omaha, as well as at the Gene Leahy Mall as our weekly Saturday march begins there at 11am!

                    North Omaha: The first starting-point is at 24th and Ames at 11am! The northwest corner has a grassy field. (This group will meet us at 24th and Hamilton (Grassy area south of the mall). We will continue the march from 24/Hamilton at 12pm.)

                    South Omaha: The first starting-point is…

                    • Occupy Shop website

                      Set up a website with lists of local artisans, locally owned businesses, etc for each city to encourage people to shop local for the holidays.A % of profits goes to support Occupy projects and needs. Add products from artists, furniture makers, crafters, etc for sale with a % going to occupy projects. Add a barter section for products and services by each local area. Launch it on the 10th. Imagine a local bakery selling OccuPies for the holidays or 99% knitted caps or whatever.

                      • Marches to end segregation

                        In Omaha we are having a march to symbolically end the racist economic and political policies that have kept our city segregated! This march extends throughout our city on our main North to South artery! Then we will have workshops on #ows as well as the Dec 12th port shut-down strike.

                        I like the ideas of flooding the banks with pennies. Additionally - we are going to offer free advertising to the local credit union we choose for our funds!

                        • Pay Day Lenders

                          Intensely high interest rates, predatory practices that target minority and military neighborhoods, as well as chronic borrowing habits for customers. The holidays see a rise in activity too. We need a fair system to provide for people who live paycheck-to-paycheck. This may be a niche market, but it is very worthy of a human rights atrocity.

                            • Flood the Big Banks With Pennies

                              Get a group together, and everyone get your hands on as many pennies as possible. Take them to your 'favorite' local Big Bank, and stand on line (ideally making the line as long as possible). Each person, when their turn arrives, should ask to exchange the pennies for silver dollars. Insist on silver dollars -- banks don't have many, and it should quickly create a huge standstill when they run out, and each person insists on making the exchange. Keep the transactions up for as long as possible -- ideally preventing the bank from doing any substantive business.

                                • Hold teach-ins to educate peole about how the Federal Reserve banking system creates debt slavery

                                  The private Federal Reserve banking system controls the money supply and therefore controls all economic activity. The interest owed to this private bank can never be repaid, but our taxes continually go to pay off this private corporation as well as other corporate banksters instead of being put to public use. The U.S. Treasury could be printing all of our money debt free, but these banksters have taken over government, including Congress, the Executive and the Judicial branches. We now have the best government money can buy. This is a crime! Debt money is robbing us of our wealth and…

                                      • Reach out to local Tea Party chapters in peace, in the spirit of unity.

                                        Occupy people who are most skilled at peaceworking need to go to local Tea Party chapters with a reassuring message; We don't want to threaten your rights to bear arms, we are open to the idea of limited government and limited taxation. We want our Constitution back just as you do. We want to focus on something we can all agree on as Americans. Let's talk.

                                        • Make cute cardboard ideal American towns to occupy in. When the cops rip them up Godzilla-style, be sure and film it.

                                          Have teams of artists make cute cardboard towns to occupy in instead of tents. Nobody can call them an eyesore if they're done well, made to resemble American small town squares, complete with 'soda fountain' and 'general store'. Materials can be stored in them, too. That way, when the police come to clear it, on film it will be priceless. Huge cops destroying small-town America. Like Godzilla.
