Any chance the tents will come back? It was that constant presence that got us to grow in the first place. Whether or not they do, I'll continue working with Occupy with all of my time and resources. Solidarity, and thank you for all you have done and continue to do!
Thank you! We are hoping to see tents. Bring it, we will make sure you are fed, and make friends that will last a lifetime.
I need to find a bank I cannot seem to remember where the list is through one of the occupy websites. I was wondering if you knew where to find this list of banks or what do you think about Regions Bank
My local occupy is obsessed with gmo and monsanto. However, they do very little discussion about the basics, such as wages, jobs, medical, etc. Is this common? Are all occupy movements (i.e. "occupy-city name") connected?
I noticed the story from the deaf man and his communication accessibility limitations. I thought I would share some, very shocking, news about why this man and so many others are unable to access simple programs. AT&T allowed Nigerian criminals access to a Federally subsidized service for the disabled. The FCC filed charges and demanded more than $40 Million to be returned for fraudulent billing along with almost $20 Million more in interest and fines. FCC documents: AT&T Settles TRS fraud
On New Year's Eve I had a miscarriage at home. I do not have insurance and live off of $800.00 a month. If I called an ambulance I would not be able to afford to eat for months. I'm 32 years old and college educated. I do not have any debt. I am the 99%
Wells Fargo is foreclosing on my property and I have been paying every single one of my monthly payments. All they have to do to get my property is file a notice of default wait 90 days then announce a sale date. If I want to defend myself I have to hire attorneys that I can not afford or lose my property. What recourse do I have? I have written to Kamala Harris but all I get is finger pointing at different agencies, such as Office of the comptroller, Consumer Financial and no response.
So when is everyone grouping together again to form another nonviolent protest? After this recent tax increase and groceries going up, something needs to be done about those employed in Congress. We can't keep letting them run things the way they are now. So what is being planned?
I am a 56-year-old woman. I worked for Lockheed Martin for 35 years. I was laid-off just 3.5 years short from being able to collect a full pension. For each year before I am 59.5 years old my pension drops 5%, so if I put in for my retirement benefits now and draw my pension I would loose 15.5% of my pension. I worked 35 years, at the same time I went to college, graduated, and earned my bachelor’s degree. For what?! I now have to try and find a job at age 56.
I am the 99% - I am a good man who has been taken to the edge of sanity by the world I live in. a world where people are rewarded disproportionately to their contribution to their fellow man. a world where a soccer player can earn enough in a week to buy a house, but where a nurse who saves and nurtures the lives of others is made to survive on a subsistence wage. I am the 99% and the time has come for us to take back our world.
