  •  it's time for some new tactics, frankly. (8+ / 0-)

    the occupation is a good thing. But now it's time to begin drawing attention to the effects of income inequality and worker inequality rather than just camping out.

    Consistent focused intelligent ideas.

    One idea I had was to highlight the sub-living wage work conditions on Black Friday (rather than call for a boycott of it which is just stupid).

    Go to the mall or store and accept collections for the retail workers who are only making 8/hr and working 12 hour "holiday hours" without overtime. Stand outside just like salvation army santa and say that you're collecting money for workers who only make about 250/week while the CEO makes 10,000/hr. And then actually donate/split any monies between the actual retail workers at the stores.

    Things like THAT to help raise awareness and amplify the message.

    The effectiveness of sleeping in the park is significantly less than two months ago. Time for some new action.

    I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.
