I'm interested in what people here think would be the most effective way to communicate the goals and beliefs of Occupy to the people who may not know or understand the movement?
I'm taking about the people who aren't part of the camps, who don't follow on Twitter or Facebook. They don't march or strike. But they have a growing dissatisfaction. They worry about their medical bills, they work hard to pay their mortgage, and they work even harder to make sure their kids don't go without. They're not political people. They're the 99%.
How would you explain the Occupy movement to them? How would you show them that Occupy is working for people like them?
I think it has to be something that unites both ends of the 99% spectrum. We have to find the common ground between the people in tents in the parks and the families struggling under the weight of capitalism.
I'm looking for practical ideas. Radio, TV, newspapers? Maybe something more unconventional. Anything that will spread that message.
