Occupy Celebrations instead of Protests?

3 posts / 0 new

Since the majority of Americans get cranky at the idea of "protests" (even if in their best interests) I was thinking one thing that Occupy could do to win over the populace would be to relabel the "protests" celebrations. Celebrate in advance the break up of big banks, big oil, big corporations and the passage of progressive taxes plus giving tax breaks breaks to the middle class where they are direly needed. It's just psychological but the public might be more up for a party than a protest.

I like the idea of Occupy parties, Occupy picnics, Occupy Festivals. Thanks for the inspiring idea.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
