Instead of forming large mobs, disperse the multitude of OWS supporters to the shopping malls of America. Post four or five at each carrying signs that say "Occupy Jobs, Buy American." Give each a list of American made products and what stores carry them in the mall.
Corporations respond to profit. If we can move even 10% of their holiday sales to products made in America, they will make DAMN sure to put more on the shelves.
What I'm advocating is that OWS try to teach America to consider the SOCIAL cost (jobs, living wage, etc) of the products they buy rather than just the lowest sticker price. See my post at http://occupywallst.org/forum/the-power-of-the-people/
Our removal from parks is not the end, it is only the predictable end of the beginning. It's time to deploy a mid-game strategy that shows the power of the people to change corporate America.
