While the Occupy Wall Street movement’s detractors may see the banishment from parks as a sign the occupation is breaking up, forward-thinking occupants see it as a moment to change from one tactic that has been very successful as a way of launching and gaining publicity to other strategies that may be more effective for actually making change.

You missed the genius of occupying Wall Street, and these well-meaning but misguided souls never realized that you get to Washington (congress) via Philadelphia: https://sites.google.com/site/the99percentdeclaration/

Plato has Socrates saying something like walking with company is a good opportunity to dialog and to explore issues. It is also good exercise. Perhaps we should all try it. Congress is a great objective.

A) Why don't YOU start walking to DC??? Why is this up to someone else? What are YOU doing? What's your excuse? And B) who says you can't change Wall Street? What are they, aliens? Gods? Stop being a pussy--they breathe the same way the rest of us do, they have loved ones just like rest of us, and they look just like everyone else does in prison clothes. Stop worshipping them and start holding them accountable...

I had high hopes for this group, thinking they would collect thousands of followers along the way. But that is not how it has materialized. Perhaps once they arrive in DC there will be many to welcome them.

I think this is very important for us to learn the best methods of spreading the word. What works, what doesn't, what can be improved? Remember, this is just the beginning of organization, with large numbers, much can be accomplished.

Better than what they have been doing but unnecessary. Just organize the same protests as Zoo Park except do it outside outside the representatives' offices and homes in your local area and demand they do their job. They are the problem.

This has barely been talked about, but these are the most dedicated to the cause. Why so few?
