I usually carry my Stampede Stamp with me to various actions to see who would like to borrow and make use of it,...

@carolyndixon David Cobb of Move to Amend was instrumental in planning the Saturday of the Kalamazoo gathering last summer; at the final GA we agreed to endorse their campaign (as always, that simply meant that those present had agreed; we are not a representative movement—although I am sure that folks went back to their home Occupys armed with information and a report on that endorsement, it did not require any specific action of any specific Occupy). I do remember someone at S17 (I think it was) doing presentations on MOP, Money Out of Politics in N.Y. Certainly the influence of money on our political system is agreed by almost all, if not all, Occupyers to be a damaging influence (some Occupyers figure that the system is inherently flawed, and money out is not enough).

@dennis, @sallyg Thanks for the info about other groups working to get $ out of politics- may not be enough, working within the system, but I don't know what else to do. I don't know what working outside the system would look like.


Sally G Mon 25 Aug 2014 3:27AM

I do think we can accomplish a fair amount working within the system; there are a few good guys like Dennis Kucinich (gerrymandered out) and Alan Grayson (congressmanwithguts.com; Florida), and we can support them and push the rest; however, some more radical/anarchist types want revolution. For now, I am content to push folks to pay attention, get active, and force politicians and corporations to be accountable—that is more than enough to do! (If not, we can work on ending war, hunger, etc.) A model of working outside the system may be the Zapatistas. I just caught up on a lot of their history at Wikipedia (http://tinyurl.com/pkc7kj3 ; sadly, I was too busy at NatGat to attend their workshop).


Carolyn Dixon Tue 26 Aug 2014 6:25AM

If the Zapatistas are an example, then there are many others: the encampment at Zuccotti Park, community gardens, building tiny houses for the homeless, Occupy Sandy, perhaps worker-owned businesses. What else can anyone suggest?


Sally G Tue 26 Aug 2014 7:46PM

Agreed, the question is how to bring them to scale so that the larger system is forced to change, or at least become the ignored minority.

Going to the People's Climate March? Stay Beyond the March
Sept. 22 #floodwallstreet
massive DA, CD in blue:

On Monday, September 22nd at 9am, thousands of people will gather at Battery Park in Lower Manhattan to confront the root cause of the climate crisis - an economic system based on exploiting frontline communities, workers, and natural resources. On the heels of the largest-ever march on climate change, we have an opportunity to transform our energy systems and our economic systems, and in fact - they cannot be separated.

Wearing blue to represent the sea that surrounds us, we rise to the steps of the NY Stock Exchange at 12 pm, flooding the area with our bodies in a massive sit-in - a collective act of nonviolent civil disobedience to confront the system that both causes, and profits from the crisis that is threatening humanity.

Full call to action and information: http://floodwallstreet.net
9 AM - Gather @ Battery Park - Breakfast and Music from Rude Mechanical Orchestra
9:30 AM - Speakers - including frontline community leaders of the Climate Justice Alliance, Global Ambassadors from 350.org, Rebecca Solnit and Chris Hedges
11 AM -- Nonviolent Direct Action Training & March
12 PM -- Flood Wall St. and Mass Sit-In
