I constantly read the posts and updates from the many Occupy movements across the land. In some their treatment is horrific, illegal and abusive and I believe presumptively, that collectively we stand against such acts. I am curious about the smaller towns and cities as well as the Larger ( though that information is more readily available. In our immediate area, The City and Police department have acted admirably and even been supportive of the movement. I read a post today about, #OWS Victories and Allies that supporting the efforts. I'd like to know more about who they are, and where they are? we are quick to spread virally the Injustice exacted against us and any of our brothers and sisters, and this needs continue, since we are own media, and replication of messages and Identifying the oppressors is a beginning of Justice. It is simply that those standing need to know, to lift their spirits; That there is support and progress being made. If you disagree, that is respected also In the 99% there are many represented and there are many who support the movement. Realize this is simply a forum topic and as any other I am certain it is open to Trolls, and those pushing support and agendas of campaigns. In Continued support.. We will prevail!

In New Orleans our encampment is strong in numbers. The homeless have fortified with numbers and energy. We are across from City Hall. What we are in need of is long term strategy, and short term goals to get there.

Well Lets see: a Few small victories: BoA is discarding their fee (Not that it would effect me)...."The Occupy Wall Street protesters can take heart in knowing that police and military action is usually the last desperate act of power brokers trying to hold on to control. " "The days of clamping down free speech with violence are over. The average citizen, using social media, has too many ways to communicate, organize and stand up to oppression." Worldwide support and assembling more daily. On "Prevail" ** Dictionary definition- Be widespread in a particular area at a particular time; be current: "an atmosphere of crisis prevails".

eh, in my (smaller) town there isn't any violence. OWS is working really hard with the local police to make sure they are keeping sanitation, and they are quiet at night and they are not blocking any roadways. We know here, that if we break the law by disrupting the peace (and thereby changing our peaceful assembly into a disorderly mob) we will be removed. So its actually all good. And because we're being orderly, we have people stopping to ask us what its about, not avoiding angry shouting. Some of us go home at night and its snowing here now but because we ARE acting orderly we have had republicans bring us blankets.

This strategy WILL work because it has the movement using LAWS to compel officials to act pursuant to their lawful duty.----
