Collectively our buying power controls commerce and makes it possible for all businesses to rise or fall. IF an organized non-violent action were taken by the MANY to halt commerce by NOT PURCHASING A THING FOR A DAY, by not taking mass transit for a day, by ceasing to engage in anything that creates a profit for big business and or government, then that would demonstrate that we as a people do have the Power! At the end of the day it is about Money. Lets demonstrate our power by hitting big business where it hurts....their bottom line!
Use co-operatives not corporations...change your money for gold and silver and barter where possible.
And most important of all DONT USE BANKS
Better yet: if you must shop, support local neighborhood stores and purchase locally produced goods.
This is a positive direct action that may very well sway small business owners to the movement.
