Obviously the changes that are needed are systemic. The fulcrum for change is the government. You are wasting precious resources by demonstrating in front of the Banks. Go to where the laws get made and demonstrate in the thousands in one place. Peaceful demonstration at the Nations Capital will get more attention and it's the logical place for everyone to convene. This occupation should be focussed on forcing sweeping changes to the way industry (many industries) and politics are regulated. And get the money out of politics. This type of change can only happen from the top down. You have to bring this fight to Washington.

True but that doesn't mean standing out in the freezing cold. #occupy was successful in that regard, for the most part. The political battle will take place in the true American city, Philadelphia, not Washington.

Yes indeed, go to Washington, D.C. the seat of all the evil and kick all those 535 skunks in Congress out of office. Give them 48 hours to get out. If no drastic actions are taken by this movement there will be no changes. We also have to establish our own political party and run our people for all the available political offices.

Good idea we should bring it to every capital in the world, but at the same time keep up the fight outside.

never attract your opponent where he is the strongest- instead attack where he is the weakest and where he least expects it- many many small disruptions will weaken your opponent-
