Just a hint of advice the Egyptian's protest worked so well because it was from 5pm-12pm everyday so people would get off work and go protest.
•Don't spend the night
This is what Occupy should be doing instead of trying to take something that they don't need. Such as the parks no one needs to sleep there it doesn't prove anything other than you are willing to break the law. Being at a park to protest at 3 in the morning isn't meaningful. There has been a woman who has camped out of the white house for years even though she camps there no one cares or notices her. Don't become that annoyance you need people on your side. The media wont want to follow you that late at night because they don't care enough. Most people are in bed at that time so they don't care. The fact of protesting that late is just counter productive if no one can read the sign no one can get the message.
•invite all people
If you want this to be successful you need to invite everyone after work everyday and go from those times. from 5pm - 12pm. Inviting of everyone is the major key. If you only allow people who dont have jobs or only think one way you get a biased movement. Invite bankers lawyers policemen business men people that can make a difference. The biggest problem with this movement is yelling at anyone who wears a suit. Plus it allows the opportunity for the every working person to come down after work.
•Be nice to the police
Now with the police the reason they hate this movement so much is the amount overtime they have to work to keep this in line. Stop treating the police like animals dont shout at them dont make them angry because they dont want to do as much as you think they do. This movement needs to move away from attacking the police such as protesting them they are only following orders. Work with the police and they will allow things to slide.
•work with the local government
As a person of society you need to make sure that things get to still run smoothly. Tell the local government that you will be protesting from certain times of the day be open with them. Tell them that you want no more arrest and that the cop coverage does not need to be as strong that you will police yourself well and get rid of the bad seeds. The government will work with you guys if you approach them in a human and reasonable way.
This is a bit of advice it the leaders see this or anyone see this i suggest you listen to this because it will return better results than those that are coming
