I just heard there's going to be a coordinated general strike in at least 4 EU countries undergoing "austerity" shock treatment! OWS globally should support these strikes somehow - how about a total abstention of using ANY major credit cards starting on Nov 14 2012 until the EU general strikes end...concentrating our efforts should send a clear message to the powers that be that we mean business!

You're likely to find that your implicit admission that you use major credit cards the rest of the time puts you at rather serious odds with a lot of folks around here. They most strongly disapprove of banks and credit-issuers generally.

Of course, there's me, but I use credit cards for short-term financing for my business, and I travel a lot on business and need credit cards for that, and our phone, bills, internet bills and so on are paid via credit card, so I'm not going to go on a credit card strike because that would be impractical and impede my business, and I've got payroll to make; so you've got the opposite problem. Good luck.
