  •  Maybe, but I think attacking the media directly, (0+ / 0-)

    makes more sense. I suggest occupying some newsrooms and showing side-by-side broadcasts to illustrate what is being cut and what is being spun. Turn the cameras on the news manufacturers and their bosses, to make them accountable for their conduct.

    •  That's not public space tho. It's criminal trespa (0+ / 0-)

      ss.  What next?  Squatting people's houses?  How does that reassure the pleebs?

      OWS has been careful to occupay public spaces (pretty much), as we can legitiately claim 1st A rights and, heck, its right there in the name, 'public'.

      •  Whatever Displeases the 1% is Illegal (0+ / 0-)

        If you fight by the rules the 1% set, you automatically lose. For example, only showing up when the corporate media wants us to show is effectively playing into their hands.

        Make no mistake. This is a war,  without bullets and fists, but it's still a war. The enemy is firing back with full force They don't give a shit about you except for the casualties you inflict to their power, profits and comfort.

        If you're actually interested in winning this war, you will have to determine an effective attack strategy that minimizes losses and, hopefully, forces the enemy to beat themselves.

        Beyond that, expect casualties.
