Everyone gets on here and quickly screams socialist, extremist, communist, but what is more extreme, asking for economic justice for all or buying the senate to deny social and economic justice. Corporations have bought and monopolized all three legislative branches making it an extreme corporate monarchy fascist echo chamber. That is more extreme and unconstitutional than asking for justice for all.

The only policy document that OWS has produced of which I am aware is the Declaration of the Occupation of New York City and while it has a list of more than 20 grievances it very specifically asks nothing of anyone, which is to say it makes no demands. What is does do is offer what limited moral and material support it is able to give to people everywhere throughout the world, who will follow its example.

Can someone please define economic justice?

economic justice would be where you could own a chicken to feed eggs to your family. economic injustice is what we live in now where the government has said, that our homes are not zoned for owning animals that can sustain life, or the one woman who was put in jail for selling flowers from her house. (wasnt zoned for home business where more than two customers came to her house in a week) mind you this happened a 2 years ago when people were struggling to pay their mortgage. Got the picture of economic justice or rather injustice that we live in now?

The first time I've heard a lucid explanation. But I will say that others seem to have different ideas of what it means.

asking a corporate OWNED government for anything is fine, actually expecting anything other than business as usual is plain retardation
