Re Occupy. Take what learned from past. Occupy redux, if just in day times, even.

Hone message a bit more. There were some succeess at getting message out. What is the message that would get people energized not only to reoccupy, but actionable plan, demand, concrete proposals the average American can relate to, to increase interest and civic participation

Have some concrete measurable actions-goals:

1 significant increase voter registration and education a. Increase of public information and investigative press, media

2 Demand higher ethics of representatives, and increase of democracy a Affidavits of Leo. b citizens represented in elections with fair funding c investigate and implement people's national initiatives or other reforms 2d end gerrymandering

3 Support universal human rights for 21st century. A bring back local manufacturing jobs B increased education opportunities C investigate student loan jubilee program for portion of debt D healthy environment and planet for long range health E safety without violence and guns 3f mental health care, outreach

It was nice people could get together and exchange ideas, now have be more flexible, even virtual.

Not need to be at same park each day, change locations, be flexible adaptable, flash-gather at different parks, switch it up a bit,

This really had drawn attention of many, to these issues. Just have some concrete proposals that people can support, as common sense, mainstream American democratic ideals. http://my.firedoglake.com/dennistrainorjr/2014/06/09/why-millennials-dont-vote-and-what-to-do-about-it-atv-007/
