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.

GOP Blocks Equal Pay...again.

Just in time for election season, Senate Republicans blocked legislation aimed at closing the gender pay gap. For the third time since 2012, Republicans refused to allow debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, and reminded women that the GOP doesn't believe in equal pay for equal work.
