    As a part of the 99% I believe the only cure from our obvious economic slide is to stop using money.
    The government will try to trick us into a one world currency, but we must not be fooled. Basically don’t do anything they say.
    Originally I was going to say that we must stop working, but that, we cannot do either. Keep working, but do not cash your checks.
    Do not pay your bills. Do not charge anyone who says they are the 99% That way we can effectively charge the 1% until there is only 100%.
    I’m saying that if you are a part of this movement you will NOT use money at all. And if anyone asks you for money you tell them about this, and walk away.
    Start from the ground up and see how far it can go. Sure there is risk of being fired, or being charged, but you must not let thier money be worth anything to you.
    That’s how they will keep us tied down. It’s pretty simple people…we learned this in kindergarten… All we have to do is SHARE!!!!

      Shit Happens: I think you need to check your facts before publishing.. Two attacks took place on Tuesday. In the early morning around (sunrise) police violently evicted peaceful occupiers from their camp. Later that same day police fired all sorts of projectiles in an effort to keep people from re-occupying the plaza, resulting in the injury of peaceful protesters such as Scott Olsen, to name one.
      Wednesday evening the plaza was re-occupied and a General Assembly of at least 1,500 voted in favor of a General Strike to be held on Nov. 2nd. This group, and a few hundred more, then took to the streets in protest of the previous nights violence.

      there you go. that’s what happened.

  15. Brock Says:

    You don’t stop using money. You can’t. That is ridiculous. You have to have money to get by, unless you live on an Omish farm where you go down to the creek to get your own water, butcher your own animals and pick berries and milk cows for hours on end. All everyone has to do is INVEST IN LOCAL CREDIT UNIONS. By not spending money, you will be cutting off your nose dispite your face. Just transfer the money. That simple. They can’t tell you no. You still have your money to live off of, you’re not “going to work and not cashing your check” (wtf). Transfer your money away from big banks. It’s that easy. Most credit unions have a board of directors who are usually community members overseeing the transactions of the institution…many times it’s someone you know in smaller towns. November 5th. Bank Transfer Day.

  16. Nikki S. Says:

    Brock, nobody is asking you to live without spending money except on ONE day. This is easy. And it lets the world know how many are in support of the movement. That’s what a general strike is for. Just to lend support, wherever you live. If everyone supporting the Occupiers spends NO money on Nov. 2, it wll be a remarkable thing, noticable to everyone.
