So the occupy protest are a good idea and was a brainstorm to protest the greed and corruption throughout big banking, big business and big government. However they are not quite enough to get our point across. They have been largely shut down and villified by the media. There are other things people wanting to protest the coruption through all the levers of power in our society can do. One is to boycott the print media that is often controlled by the corporations and often owned by just a few super rich families giving them a virtual monopoly on the news and entertainment business in our society. If we boycott them they will watch their subscription and sales wither away. We should seek alternative sources of information and news etc, especially on the internet....independent media etc.
One other good idea for protest would be to withdraw our savings account from the banks. Not just certain ones all of them. Some people are switching to credit unions instead, which maybe a good idea but I say people can get by without a banking account at all. In order to pay bills it isn't necessary to have checking acount, one can simply ay local bills in cash and others by sending money orders through the mail. You don't need a checking account to do that. They may crack down on people protesting but withdrawing your money and send a strong message we aren't going to let graft and coruption through all the higher levels of society go without demanding justice.
