Controlling our own image because image is everything: Volunteering is us but who knows it besides us. Vandalism by outsiders in Seattle & Oakland gets hung on us by TV media sensationalism because “one picture is worth a thousand words”& many people watch the news without really listening. One image controller would be the “Adopt a Street” program which I quote, “The County will provide each organization with a plate (size of letters dependant on size of organizations name) stating organizations name as part of the Adopt-a Street program.” This is free favorable publicity that is worth a fortune. Another would be to invite all artists to create their images of how they see OWS. A traveling art show of one of the most colorful happenings in America since Woodstock would be a masterpiece in itself. We should have representation on, American Idol, The Amazing Race/500k ea.to winning pair.” etc. Occupy is only our name but we represent everyone and everything so why not show it off?
