I think one way to protest is to stop spending Money. Forever. I did not carry cash or credit cards. I only employ the barter system. I either trade what I have or trade my labor for what I need.

excellent suggestion. I propose we all vow not to spend money for the duration of the protest. Think about it, every time we spend money a corporation profits!!

We need to create a no money network across the middle states and New England

I don't possess any money either. Ever. I mentioned this on the last woman I went on a date with ...... Fours years ago.

if we did away with money and took the code of conduct for this protest and continued it in daily life then we would be a better country unencumbered with corporate greed and have greener technology, which has been suppressed in the past by fossil fuel barons

Beg borrow or steal, and if you can't rape it or kill it, piss on it. yea, now that's a modern view, too... I think Roger Waters said it best way back when. Yo kiddies, Google "Money". You may learn sumptin...
