You have the stage. But that's not enough. You need to do something with it. The key is linking each other together physically because they're not equipped to handle 30, 50, 100, 300 people connected in a human chain. And the world will be watching as you successfully shut down Wall St. for a day. You have them scared behind the scenes. Now is the time to act calmly, lovingly and tactically in a non-violent way. Peaceful non-resistance. This is how King and Gandhi did it. Your demand is: "Shut down Wall St. because it's hurting Americans, citizens of the world and ruining the environment." And when they fail to do so, you do it for them in a non-violent way. "We shut down Wall St. for a day so America and the world could breathe for a day, be free of the oligarchy for a day, be free of the exploitation for a day, be free of the greed for a day. Some people will say 'What good is a day?'. Our response is that it's a pretty good start. If someone has their foot on your neck for years and years, non-violently forcing that foot to be removed for a day allows you breathing room for all sorts of options. To shut it down, you new human chains blocking each of the entrances to this new green zone they've created around Wall St. Those suits have to get in so, by definition, there will always be entrances to block. If you link yourselves together, you will essentially create an enormous traffic jam and no one will be able to get into the area including the Wall St. suits. You will shut down Wall St. for a day if you use this tactic.
