    for Occupy, but of course I'm just one person.

    I think we should continue to talk about all the issues that brought us out into the streets:  political corruption, lack of jobs, income inequity, the bailout, student loan debt, credit card debt, etc.

    But at the moment I really think that 1)defending those targeted for foreclosure and 2)occupying foreclosed-on buildings that have long remained vacant and 3)fixing them up and making them of use to the community are the way to go.

      is going to take more than just some people holding a demonstration in front of their house.

      •  I don't think people appreciate (1+ / 0-)

        that the power structure is quite deliberate. Its not merely about informing in the long run. It is , of course,a s I said above . a necessary step, but its not sufficient. Those in power will not give that power up easily. They are used to waiting  out the left and any roforminst movements.

      •  I'm sure the anti-eviction groups (0+ / 0-)

        can bring us up to speed on this.
        And yes, there will need to be legal teams involved as well.
        But I'm with Marcy Kaptur:  make them produce the title, or tell them to screw off.
