This is a cool movement but what about corporate greed? MobileExxon, Shell, Texaco/Chevron --- these oil giants are causing just as much disruption in our economic recovery. Every time things begin to turn around the oil giants raise the cost of fuel, which impacts most everything in our lives... petroleum goes into all modes of transportation from our rubber bike/car/truck tires to the seat cover on your bike, the dashboard of your car, the gas, and oil. Those rubber soles on your tennis shoes have petroleum, the medications you use, the plastic forks, etc. all have petroleum and the cost of these items are all influenced by the big oil producers. When a company can post a billion plus dollar quarterly profit in this economy --- we need to start occupying those companies.
