Yes, I believe that now. As long as the momentum keeps up and more people from all walks of life continue to join in. It had to start somewhere, things won't get resolved overnight, but we're on the right track in my opinion.

I don't see them accomplishing anything. I bet a good majority of them went to buy the new iphone 4s. What we need to do is conduct a boycott on products and services made available by these corporations. BUT, i fear this might be impossible since the majority of the people are dependant on them.

The best way to hit Wall Street right now is to close your bank accounts and move your money over to credit unions. Imagine the damage if the entire middle class did that.

Plus, you get better rates on loans and higher interest on your savings. Credit unions tend to have fewer fees, too.

An Open Letter From FedUpUSA To Occupy Wall Street Protestors All Over The Country



"We are also against the banks and big corporations buying our politicians and writing laws that favor their special interests. We understand that our economy is broken BECAUSE of this and that all of our other issues will never be addressed as long as the financial elite control OUR government.


We understand that these issues cross party lines and ideologies and effect each and every one of us. We also understand that these issues will never get fixed as long as we continue to let the media, the elite, and members of the government separate us by our differing ideologies."
