It's been a few months since the OWS movement began. This might not exist, but has anyone compiled any sort of list of tangible accomplishments the group has achieved so far? If so can you please provide a link or location where I can read about it?

Thanks

Here's one. Economic corruption of Government is now a topic everyone can discuss.

Somewhat successful promotion of direct democracy and anarchy.

Occupy Wall Street has its own wikipedia page and the word has seen a massive increase in Google searches.

Now if only these great accomplishments which grace the hallowed halls of our beloved internet would sweep across the world and enlighten the lives of all who it greets....or probably not.

I doubt you will find any item on that list except 'raising awareness', tangible in the struggle to occupy the physical spaces, to demonstrate that people feel their rights are being violated. The types of things I think you're looking for on a list do exist but will never get crossed off until OWS understands that the right to peaceably assemble is immediately followed by the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Here is a suggested List and there is a process in place to allow everyone to participate in any degree they wish, finalizing the document July 4th in Philadelphia, which will be served to all three branches of government. Then we will start to see a list of accomplishments, or else.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that IF the PETITION FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES approved by the 876 Delegates of the NATIONAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY in consultation with the NINETY-NINE PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE, is not redressed and acted upon within a reasonable time and to the satisfaction of the Delegates of the NATIONAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY, said Delegates shall reconvene to organize a new grassroots campaign to elect independent candidates to Congress who will publicly PLEDGE to redress each and every grievance contained in the ratified PETITION FOR REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES. These independent candidates for the United States House and Senate will seek election in every available Congressional seat in the mid-term election of 2014 and again in 2016 and again in 2018 until all vestiges of the existing corrupt corporate state have been eradicated through the power of the ballot box and the empowerment of the 99%.

First publish what you have accomplished in your life WHERE WE CAN READ IT AND STUDY YOU if you haven't accomplished anything then shut up and don't expect anybody else to accomplish anything either
