couchsurfing for all occupiers!

I just saw, that wooloo.org is managing temporary homes for occupiers in NY. When heads of city of oakland cleaned away the camp, is this happening? I am not inside, i just went to the last march and occuping of the empty lot was a delirium. It brought a big hope. With continuing of destroing of nature and nations through this system we will end in disaster in less then 20 years. There is no any other solution than Change. Power to everybody. 7458

OAKLAND! http://www.occupymyforeclosure.org/

The 18th and Linden camp, last time I checked, was moving on, due to questions of legality and willingness of the owners to let us occupy. While that might not be the perfect site for a camp, the tactics are brilliant. Since the beginning of the occupation there’s been a lot of talk about blocking evictions and foreclosures, as well as using empty foreclosed properties for winter camps. We now have an online forum for organizing these occupations. Please share with anyone who might benefit from this action. Power to … Continued

A likely milestone on events.

With the growth that is forseen to take place with the movements against inequality, exploitation and poverty and giving special notice to the events on Oakland, the Mayor of the city Jean Quan has stated she pledged to support the Occupy movement since around October. A likely outcome for the future months is that we could see the Mayor herself facilitating, “sponsoring” a public meeting in a place such as the stadium where the voices of the locals who also represent the nation would be heard in debate like fashion … Continued

Goals and Mission

“work together to carry through coordinated, pinpointed actions. We want  to disrupt the profits of the 1% and to show solidarity with those in the 99% who are under direct attack by corporate tyranny.” Is a direct quote from the most recent post from Occupy Oakland. I am interested in what coordinated, pinpointed actions are planned.  Also the goals, mission, steps, and procedure to disrupt the profits of the 1%?  I am very supportive of the Occupy movements, but would be interested in more detail of what the procedures are … Continued

Post for finding best Facts that Everyone show internalize

The key to the movement’s success is for the facts to be presented to the entire society (of America and hopefully the World). First the words “99%” says so much. You all have the knowledge that 1 % of the population are running and own most of everything. But if you are ever questioned by the media it would be for your benefit to know Real Facts. So I suggest that you all watch “INSIDE JOB”. On the plus side I can honestly say it’s a Matt Damon movie. It … Continued

Political Party

It’s time for the Occupy Movement to form a National Political Party. We could call ourselves the 99′ers  If we can’t persuade the Congress and Senate to change the Laws and Regulations regarding the disparity of wealth in this country by our actions then a Political Party would be our next logical step.  I don’t know how to do this but I’m sure we have folks within the movement who do.. 7430
