If we get organized, maybe we can march on D.C. There are plenty of companies who would pay for buses. Demands must be made, so we need to get organized - document our various grievances and sit peacefully in front of Congress or the White House until we have a voice. Also, we need a leader, someone who can speak for us. I nominate Jon Stewart, I think he would do it. I'm not kidding and I think, using our collective resources, we could get a hold of him and actually get him to speak for us. Also, I think he's just as pissed as we are and would do something to help us. Reach out to me if you want to make this happen. Let's actually DO SOMETHING.

Hello, Greetings from Spain, from #takeTheSquare or #spanishrevolution This is not a crazy idea, we did it, last June protesters from many occupations all over the country marched -by foot- towards the capital Madrid. They arrived in July causing an impact Nationwide. They did not have the need to "launch" the march with a folder of demands, they carried out assemblies in every town and village (and cities) they visited and they gathered a HUGE amount of serious complaints and demands from "REAL PEOPLE". The document was then handed over through Congress to the President of Spain, so he for once gets an idea of what is really going on in his country. As for the idea of a Speaksperson, I am not so sure, a comendiant is a good idea, but only if it is absolutely understood and taken for granted that he does not represent any one. Please whatever you do, take into account that this is already a global movement, whatver you decide will have an impact in others (like us). Keep on and best luck!

I find it funny that you're suggesting companies pay to bus people to DC to protest their industry. :)
