Why make demands? why not come up with concrete solutions and actively work to build an alternate economy? Many peeps who support occupy outside the encampment are professionals or like myself small business operators who actively pursue barter, labour exchange, etc. Time and time again movements or 'micro movements' are created that bark demands but offer no alternative or attempt to build solutions or forge alliances. Through conversation, cooperation and creativity the answers are within our reach, one only need take hold of them.
You don't like banks, take your money and business to a Credit Union, You don't like multinational corporations, support local independant business, You want good clean food get off you ass and down to a farmers market, farmers food too expensive barter with them, talk to them. Get out of your comfort zone and talk to strangers in person we may suprise you.
