What does the occupy movement want to accomplish?

An equitable world would be a good start. Someplace in which we could all have quality healthcare, education, childcare, and a life with respect.

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.

Get in touch with Occupy Homes.

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?

Ask a local organizing group. Go to http://directory.occupy.net join a group, and brainstorm to plan out an action.

Where do the 1%/99% come from.

We think from this article: http://www.vanityfair.com/society/features/2011/05/top-one-percent-201105

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.

is the movement slowing down? how come its not being talked about as much as last year?

Because a successful movement that challenges corporate power is not something that the corporate media wants to report.

How do we protest a college in St. Petersburg that sells and encourages a 4 yr degree program in radiology which required a 2.75 g.p.a. and I hold a 3.50 now going into the last semester, switched up their requirement to 3.75 Disqualifing me from entering the degree program. Obama's generous student loan and grant program put me 30,000 U.S.D. in debt. The college does not want to facilitate the increased demand in fear there would be empty classrooms after the new regieme.

Reach out to this guy: http://www.ag.arkansas.gov/contact_us.html he is trying to lead a national effort against for profit colleges- perhaps your story can make the difference. http://www.khozradio.com/13699/congress_asked_to_change_rule_on_forprofit_colleges.html
