if enough people Say WTF then we could change the world
We need to grow ows, expand the targeted age audience, and change the "aura" of the movement.
Street Fairs for OWS
What if we were to gather at state capitals, once a month, say at 12 on Sunday, 1st Sunday of month, and instead of getting arrested, have it be a "multiage teach-in", a street fair, where people of all ages, including kids, to old people could gather, and do some "fun stuff" not just protesting and getting arrested-- there could be a section for that if that is what they like to organize, by all means.
Music, Arts, Dance, Games, Face Paint, etc.
There is a lot of music talent and instruments in OWS. Lots of people have kids. Lots of people have games: chess, checkers, dominoes, ipad apps, computer games, or other hobbies, card games, bingo, arts & crafts.
Bring these things together, so the kids can do something (there could be a teaching of kids-songs on musical instruments; another area would feature music and maybe "street dance" as in other cultures of world love to dance, see Mexico. Here too. So it would be like a fair. fun and educational.
A political section, with informational areas, even "teach ins".
A bigger "60s" social movement
like a social movement of the 60s, "if it is really a movement about love"
Also, there could be "free food" that might get people to come. Maybe Pot Luck, or Spaghetti, Pizza,
How about some inflatable bouncing toys. A chance to "get together" on a Sunday afternoon, with people and do something, not "religious" but social political. There could be affinity groups there too. Petitions,
