    • Providence is about to go bankrupt and you guys aren’t scrambling to help.. You talked about how Brown needs to pay property taxes so why dont you guys go protest on their green?? I think you guys should OCCUPY THE GREEN until they pay full property taxes to the city. If you want to earn respect from the average joe then get the heck out there and protest.

  3. This calendar needs to be at the info booth which means wireless and a computer that is available for updates to the webgeek. It’s very confusing at camp. There is a white board inside the new dome city that can be used in conjuction.
    but it doesn;t have this more complete info. A print out for now would be a start-Even having smart phone there on duty at the info booth would help.

    • I agree, we as a people really dont earn a thing. Neither do we respect ourselves or our possessions. We have become a people who care not for responsibility. We have been taught that bankruptcy is a common thing to not even care about how it was created, how to prevent it and that we can easily erase dept.

      • Cristian / Soy de ecuador, en nuestro sistema legal, respecto del normamento jurídico penal hablemos de derecha público, esto es que la justicia se aplica, en estricta atención a la letra de la ley, en otras palabras, con el dolor del alma, quienes venden o comercializan los deioicfdcadores son quienes cometen el ilícito y quien lo usa no, para que ello cambie, haría necesaria una reforma a la ley, la cual en ningún caso podría ser retroactiva, por garantía constitucional

    • Bussed-in Basiji says:December 4, 2012 at 5:47 am In the United States, the estimated percentage of innocent prisoners in US Federal Prisons is estimated to be at least 5%.Ineterstingly, this is close to the the expected 5% error in clerical data entry.Not everyone was guilty – of any crime – and certainly not capital crime.Just like the case of “Cultural Revolution” in the Iranian universities; the Iranian Government can appoint 5-man or 7-man committees to review all cases and render a new judgement.Where the state has made a mistake, it can apologize and pay the blood-money to the relatives.There is no shame in this.

  10. You guys are pathetic, feeble minded drones who follow some liberal ideal with no legs, just watching you slowly die off is enjoyable. You’re anti-christian anti-conservative messages are laughable, further distancing yourself from the true 99%, you’re a bunch of spoiled brats who took a poli-sci class and think you’re revolutionaries. In 5 years when you’re sitting in some art center or behind the register at a Starbucks I’ll stop by and throw a dollar your way and laugh knowing that it is by your own doing and lack of action for your own future that has landed you in a menial life.

  12. I am pro-capitalism and the major turn-off about this movement is all of the propaganda about socialism. Socialism doesn’t work people and you should go live in North Vietnam to find that one out.
    Another thing…Occupy thrives on facebook to rally it’s members, ….guess what? Facebook was created through capitalism. No capitalism= no facebook. If we lived in a socialist society then Mark Zuckerberg would not have had an incentive to create the free media that you utilize to bash the “system”. He would never have become a millionaire entrepreneur that is helping those under dictatorship to revolt and organize.

    So why are you all being hypocritical? Occupy wants socialism but they want to have their cake and eat it too…

    I only got involved with this stuff for women’s rights and occupy sexism but if I hear one more thing about socialism I’m going to leave it all together. Free markets and capitalism, whether you like it or not, are the only realistic systems that can work with human greed while still providing those the freedom to own land, their business, and grow.
    Socialism doesn’t work because human greed will always exist…now that’s being realistic.

    Being a young adult myself, I’m really disappointed with the messages put into place with the movement.

    • Occupy endorses neither capitalism nor socialism. Both systems have failed us. Many socialists have joined the movement for the anti-capitalist aspect, but many of us are supporters of capitalism. I personally believe we need a healthy mix of both, a hybrid sort of, that we need to support free enterprise and private property, while making sure we leave no one behind in our quest for prosperity. A main principle of Occupy is to respect other people’s beliefs and stand in solidarity with their struggles. I respect the fact that you don’t believe in socialism, you should respect the fact that up to a point I do believe in socialism. That is the strength of Occupy, that we can have different beliefs, repect that fact, and move on and work to create a better world.

      • I respect what you believe. I’ve only observed a socialist agenda with Occupy. Although it is not openly endorsed, I doubt a pro-capitalist group would kick off. That being said, it is nice to see people get involved and use their freedom to engage even if their views are different. How can you say capitalism has failed us? Human corruption is everywhere. In a socialist system you’d have more. Capitalism at least puts the free markets in the hands of the public and businesses compete with each other for you. Sure a mixture may be ideal, yet when you look at socialist systems in action they fall short. Example, Canada’s socialist health care lacks the incentives for doctors (salary, private ownership) and often Canadians come to America because the healthcare is better. Medicaid is also socialist and half of Rhode Island residents don’t even utilize their medicaid dental care. So help is out there even in our system.

  13. #WaveOfAction #GlobalSpring #ReOccupy #BeTheChange

    The Anniversary of the Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr sparks a Global Wave Of Action!

    The Worldwide Wave of Action begins April 4th and runs through July 4th. During this three-month cycle, people throughout the world will be protesting corruption, rallying around solutions and taking part in alternative systems. The new paradigm will be on full display.

    Studies have proven that it only takes 3.5% of the population taking nonviolent action to create meaningful and positive change. The Worldwide Wave of Action gives all of us who want change a powerful opportunity to make it happen and move society forward. Change-makers all over the world will be engaged at the same time in an unprecedented wave of transformation.

    On April 4th, there will be Worldwide Wave launch celebrations at hundreds of former Occupy locations globally. We will gather to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy of nonviolent action and spend the day connecting with allies and strategizing Spring action campaigns. This crowdsourced campaign will become what you, the people, make of it, self-organizing and organically evolving, a new culture will emerge.

    What are you most passionate about? What are you doing to be the change? Whatever it is, passionately be it in public this spring. Get together with like-minded friends and have fun with it.

    We have power in numbers. United we are unstoppable.


    WE ARE OCCUPYING ON APRIL 4TH. IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE WORLDWIDE WAVE OF TRANSFORMATION: (We call on all Occupy supporters to return to local occupation camp grounds and sites for a peaceful day of demonstration. Begin setting up local events and share them here as well.)


    The decentralized movement toward freedom is raging across the world. It cannot be stopped. The tipping point is near. Despite the lack of coverage in the mainstream media, actions are springing up on an increasing basis. A wave of transformation is rising. The zeitgeist is shifting in our direction.

    At this point, given all the nonviolent direct actions that are currently being planned, it makes strategic sense for us to organize them, in a decentralized way, in a way that the mainstream media cannot ignore. A slightly more coordinated approach is all it will take.

    The Awakening Wave

    The last time we all rallied together in a loosely knit collective fashion, the Occupy movement was born and the 99% meme brought the corruption of our political and economic system, along with the grotesque inequality of wealth, into mass consciousness in a profound and lasting way. It was the opening act, the awakening wave.

    Since the Occupy camps were crushed by brutal police state force, the movement has splintered in many different directions. This is now proving to have been a blessing in disguise. It gave us time to learn from our mistakes, figure out what worked best and forced us back into the autonomous actions that built the movement in the first place. We have now experimented with different tactics and thought through longer-term strategies.

    Meanwhile, the repressive conditions that inspired Occupy in the first place have become even more oppressive. Now more than ever, governments no longer have the consent of the governed. A critical mass has lost faith and trust in our existing institutions. The present paradigm has outlived its usefulness. It has been overrun with corruption and rendered obsolete. Our political, economic and legal systems are doing much more to limit our potential than enhance it.

    It’s Time For A Worldwide Wave of Transformation

    Let’s pick a three-month span, perhaps throughout this coming spring, and unite our collective actions into an unprecedented Worldwide Wave that cannot be ignored by anyone.

    Let’s crowdsource a relentless global wave of action that protests the corrupt, while also rallying around and celebrating effective alternatives and solutions to the vast problems we are confronted by. Imagine thousands of nonviolent guerrilla armies swarming corrupt targets and rallying for viable solutions for a sustained three-month cycle. If we begin preparing now, a massive spring offensive can lead to a summer of transformation.

    Staying true to the vital nature of the movement, you lead, in your own way. Pick whatever issues concern you most and run with them, knowing that likeminded people throughout the world will also be fighting in solidarity, in whatever way they can, at the same time you are.

    Not Focused Enough?

    In an attempt to dismiss and undermine us, status quo propagandists will once again criticize us by saying that our message of systemic change is not focused enough or lacks coherent goals. This feeble attempt to keep people from joining in with us will be overcome by our widespread and consistent actions, which will lead by example and inspire the cultural shift in mass consciousness that we urgently need. Our diverse crowdsourced actions will boldly demonstrate our will to expose, fight and overcome tyrannical systems. By rallying around viable solutions and protesting what we are against, the goals and freedoms that we aspire to will organically become self-evident to all.

    Throughout history, when people have fought against tyranny and oppression, they didn’t have one perfect utopian model outcome agreed upon beforehand. They just knew that the invading and old systems were detrimental to their wellbeing and had to go. We are now in that position.

    Don’t let the propagandists fool you. We do not need corrupt corporations or aristocratic government rulers anymore. They are obsolete. People throughout this interconnected technological world have already come up with much more effective systems to replace the tyrannical one that is currently dominating our lives. There are already many effective solutions to our problems, solutions that are held back by the entrenched forces of shortsighted greed. Once a small percentage of us withdraw our participation from corrupt entities and opt out of tyranny, the old and obsolete systems of rule will quickly fall away.

    Extensive empirical evidence demonstrates that nonviolent movements toward freedom result in positive outcomes. Research has proven that it only takes approximately 3% of the population engaging in various forms of nonviolent action to create significant meaningful change, for the betterment of society. We now have the necessary critical mass of aware people who are ready, willing and capable.

    Guerrilla Tactics

    This time the police state will not be able to crush us. We will not have stationary targets. We will be everywhere, fluid and evasive. The movement will be an unstoppable crowdsourced, decentralized and autonomous revolutionary force.

    We will engage in a diversity of nonviolent tactics, from large-scale mobilizations to small daily acts. Most of you already know the actions and tactics that are needed. Without revealing too much strategic information, here are a few basic actions to get a fire going in your mind:

    Mass gatherings, demonstrations;
    Marches, parades;
    Flash mobs, swarms;
    Shutdown harmful corporate and governmental operations;
    Worker Strikes;
    Hunger strikes;
    Strategic defaults, debt strikes;
    Foreclosure prevention;
    Boycotting corrupt corporations;
    Move your money out of the big banks and the stock market;
    Use alternative currencies and economic systems;
    Cancel your cable television and support independent media;
    Use independent online tools that don’t sell your info and protect your privacy;
    Online civil disobedience, Anonymous operations;
    Leak information on corruption;
    Use alternative energy;
    Build your own urban and hydroponic farms, or get your food from them;
    Support local businesses;
    Join local community organizations;
    Take part in food banks and help develop community support systems;
    Start or join intentional and autonomous communities;
    Experiment with new governing systems, Liquid Democracy;
    Host teach-ins;
    Organize socially conscious events;
    Make conscious media;
    Guerrilla postering, messages on money;
    Help inspiring groups and organizations spread their message;
    Random acts of kindness and compassion;
    Mass meditations, prayer sessions and spiritual actions.

    The list goes on and on. You know what you can do to play a part. Do whatever you feel inspired to do. Amplify what you are already doing. Think about what you are willing to do to be the change that we urgently need to see in the world, and then do it.

    Don’t get bogged down in infighting and caught up in negativity. Ignore the saboteurs. Collaborate with people who inspire you. Keep moving forward with an indomitable will, a compassionate spirit and radiate a positive attitude. Moods are contagious. Be passionate and have fun!

    Our ability to take part in civil disobedience is multiplied by our ability to easily record the actions on video and spread them throughout the Internet. By flooding social media with these inspiring videos, we will create a positive feedback loop that translates into more action on the ground.

    Radical change is urgently needed, so let’s make transforming the world the cool thing to do. Let’s create a culture of transformation. Let’s blaze a contagious nonviolent wave of action through mass consciousness, signaling the end of the old world, ushering in a new paradigm.

    Now is the time.
