I am so enthralled and encouraged by the Occupy Movement and what it has accomplished to date. I search for appearances by Jesse LaGreca because he speaks to the heart of the matter, (He does it quickly which is very important, since most hosts seem poised to go to the next commercial), and vicariously live through the actions of those who speak for the 99%.
I donate where I feel does the most good and have given up on many of the other "Progressive Publications", because while they focus on this week's abomination, they pose no answers.
I live in the US Virgin Islands and have purchased tickets to be physically a part of this movement. Aside from that, what's the next step?

The first phase, if I may be so presumptuous as to refer to it as that, has provided a multitude of platforms with which to attack the powers that be.
How many of us really believed that the a policeman could so dramatically pepper spray a small group of non-violent young women, corralled into position yet receive a slap on the wrist with a punishment of the lack of some vacation time.
The transgressions have escalated well beyond this and have grown too many to try and itemize them in this Diary. My question is what we do about it and where do we donate to the course of our choice.
The movement has grown so much; we have survived through the ignore stage, swept past the ridicule and discredit stage and blown by the suppress it stage.
We are now at the "We need a serious plan to deal with this movement!" stage, as is exhibited by the K Street lobbyists who are planning how to diffuse this powder keg.
I want to donate to legal attack funds, not defense funds. I want to go after the officers who are on camera exhibiting no remorse, only sadistic pleasure. I want to pull Occupy support from all Police Unions until they stand in solidarity. Why should we support fascism?
I want a legal Blitzkrieg based on the many denials of rights, collusion between Cities to crackdown on our Constitutional Rights, excessive use of force, City ordinances being able to suborn the Constitution, theft of property, selective enforcement of health ordinances without initial warnings to allow discrepancies to be corrected. I want and will support any legal entities that promise to pursue the above mentioned goals.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
