Many Loosing Interest, No Agenda, No Incentive to Fight. Organizers and Occupiers are hurting the Livelihoods of the 99%, Shame. Yea, I know It's About a lot of Things, Everything, Not Good Enough, Pick Agendas or Movement Will Slowly Die, Dam Shame.... You may find this hard to believe but there is a better way to commence this movement, the way you are doing it is becoming a nu-sense and hurting the 99% that are trying to make a living, great way to muster support. I BOW OUT, GOODBYE......

The unified agenda should be something that ties all of OWS demands together. And thats getting the money out of our politics.

The way this movement began was brilliant. The fact that there were so many agendas made it exciting. But now its at that stage where it has to put the core agenda to the forefront and have this as its core demand. If not I also think people will begin to lose interests.

I have been so proud of this movement and I still am. But its time to evolve the movement. Now.

I would have been prouder if they had declared the occupations suspended on 11/11/11 and simultaneously announced the National General Assembly in Philadelphia, but no point crying over spilled milk. The NGA must go ahead and a simple announcement and some pocket change is all that's required to give people renewal in these dark days. Consider this:

"This is not a question of politics, of right or wrong. This is a question of intelligence. We must be smart. We enjoy popular support, for now. But to preserve America's good will, we must keep our demands narrow: end the corrupting influence of money in politics. That is something a majority of Americans can get behind. That is something a social movement can achieve. And then, and only then, can the other issues be successfully pursued." -theghostofthomassjefferson

while ghost doesn't agree with the list of grievances, it becomes plain to see that we need to move this conversation to Philadelphia as per the 99% Declaration : https://sites.google.com/site/the99percentdeclaration/
