Join the "Occupy Your Block" Sidewalk Chalk Campaign

Posted 3 years ago on Nov. 8, 2011, 10:22 p.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

The Outreach Group of the NYC General Assembly has an idea inspired by this story of unity between strangers using the original social media: chalk. It's a creative, anonymous and exciting way for supporters of all ages to show support everywhere.

to join in:

  1. Draw on your sidewalk a cool message about support for Occupy Wall Street, strength in the 99%, etc.

  2. Leave chalk (maybe in a box) and write a note asking people to write on other parts of the sidewalk.

  3. Take before and after pics, and send them to OccupyYourBlock@gmail.com

  4. Outreach Group will make a music video montage of all the pics sent in, post it and share it widely on for the new Occupy Your Block coming up in one week.

Nothing is more raw, more visceral than using rock on rock to communicate. Chalk has helped us launch major leaps in human evolution, perhaps more than any other tool; from cave drawings, to symbols, to language. It's a fast, guttural, fun way to share your voice with everyone who passes, and there's something about sidewalk chalk that makes every passerby want to take a look.

In a time when your message is either being ignored, ridiculed or demonized by traditional media, #occupy sidewalk may do the trick... Social media is anything but new.

Here is something you might like, from the book 'Gandhi's Truth: On the Origins of Militant Non-Violence' by the psychologist Erik Erikson, describing him as a youth;

"He used to... scatter the utensils of worship to 'write' on the floor. When his mother tried to forbid this, he 'strongly dissented' in what may have been the ontogeneric origin of the sit down." [quoted words orig. text.]

("sit down" = Occupy/Occupation?)

Beautiful idea. The chalk street writers, up to their usual tricks.

I have to be honest I read a lot of these forums to try and get a since of where this movement is going and I think its going exactly the way the 1% wants it to. If we post 500 posts a day and each receives about 50 or 60 comments are we really discussing things or getting anywhere. I don't claim to know it all and that is the point. For a political party to go into office and believe that they know exactly how to better the economy is ridiculous. Yes they may have some great ideas, but why not consider what the general public has to say. Oh that's right because it doesn't matter what we think. I don't claim to know everything, but collectively I think WE can figure it out.

I am just suggesting that we narrow the posts down to general topics that people can discuss. For example, this could be used as a post on a forum under the category of Media Relations. We should have topics on economy, education, healthcare, etc. That way we can read 5000 or 6000 posts relating to one topic. If WE want to be taken seriously we have to narrow our focus and give tangible ideas. For example, We can have free healtcare if 5% of our taxes goes to provide utilities to run these hospitals. In return we can reduce the fed tax by 5%. I am just stating tangible examples, once again I am not claiming to know everything just giving my suggestions.

Let's have a good time first.

I Agree. This movement is in it's youth. We are growing rapidly and we learn faster when we are happy and spontaneous. We will become more focused and "serious" as the movement gets older. I have to believe that the fun-ness and spontaneity will help discombobulate the 1%.

Your concerns are certainly valid; but I think the internet has proved itself too clumsy (i.e. vulnerable to trolls and idiots) to provide the kind of organizational clarity you're talking about, (that would otherwise seem easy to achieve). The place for real discussion is in the streets, at the occupations. If there isn't one in your area, then start some kind of discussion group. The change has to come from the bottom, locally, and that's where the real discussion has to take place as well.

[-] 2 points by Decoy4924 (44) 3 years ago

On topic of news regarding the occupy movement I would like to see more of the bad news regarding the movement as well. Im in favor of the movement but there is a definite lack of whole picture news. For instance what happened in California with vendor out reach program or old women who was pushed down stairs in DC. We need to know the good and the bad of our movement to understand what works and what needs to be stopped.

[-] 1 points by Uspatriot5000 (128) 3 years ago

There is plenty of bad news about what goes on. All of you try to come across as such peaceful protesters. Stories like these are well publicized:

The most serious incident was reported in downtown Portland last night -- cops responded to calls of a Molotov cocktail being set off near the city's World Trade Center. Authorities had received unconfirmed information a week earlier that people within the Occupy Portland encampment were constructing the crudely made bomb, which is normally fashioned from a glass bottle filled with gas and a soaked rag or cloth sticking out of the opening as a wick.

At the site of the Occupy San Diego camp, street cart vendors were forced to close up shop Monday when protesters, angry that they stopped receiving free food, ransacked and vandalized the carts.

The angry mob not only scrawled graffiti on the carts, they reportedly splattered them with blood and urine as well.

In addition, the vendors received death threats, according to local radio station KNX 1070.

Last weekend, a man was walking through Zuccotti Park taking pictures of the Occupiers' camp when an unidentified man approached him and struck him in the face, leaving his victim with a laceration to the face, according to law enforcement reports.

Also in lower Manhattan, a business owner made claims that she has been terrorized and her well-being threatened by Occupiers after she prohibited them from using her store's restroom to bathe.

Stacey Tzortzatos, owner of Panini and Co., located across from Zuccotti Park, got fed up two weeks ago when demonstrators broke a bathroom sink causing flooding in the shop and leaving her with a bill of $3,000 in damages, according to the New York Post.

In Boston, homeless protesters were removed from Dewey Square after they were discovered to have knives and stashes of illegal drugs.

Even small business owners in the area are getting fed up with people expecting free stuff and services from them. There is talk they are asking the city to clear the group.

Sorry, survey results time and time show less than 35% of the population support the cause. That basically, the country is divided, just like the government. Approximately 30-35% support OWS, 20-30% support the Tea Party, the rest don't like either, are annoyed by them, or just plain do not care. Without a good majority, you will change nothing. Personally, I am against any type of Socialism, it has bankrupted many European countries like Greece and Italy. Especially this call for a "living wage" whether employed or not. There is not incentive for someone to get a job with that in place.

[-] 1 points by beenthere (17) from Boston, MA 3 years ago

There is no such thing as a revolution or an evolution that went smoothly. To think that drifters and psychopaths will not be drawn to a people's movement is naive. Unfortunately, there will always be incidents and sad events taking place as this movement gains steam and attracts wrong elements and right elements. But to abandon it because there are hangers-on who see it as an opportunity to freeload or act out their aggressions would be to throw the baby out with the bath water... don't go there. We need to focus on how to prevent bad events and get good exposure for the good events and just accept that there will always be a fly in the ointment.

[-] 1 points by Uspatriot5000 (128) 3 years ago

Yes, but I am in what you call the 99%, but don't agree with the movement. The problem is you say you represent the 99%, but not even 50% of the population support the movement. I think it pointless and runs the risk of making our economic problems worse. There are reports, particularly out West, of increased violence. Capitalism has it's problems, but I will take it over Socialism any day of the week.

[-] 2 points by beenthere (17) from Boston, MA 3 years ago

We don't have Capitalism any more, we have Feudalism. I am a small business owner whose business is growing 60% a year and I have 30 years of perfect credit, but I can't get an SBA loan unless they essentially take over my business, or a line of credit unless they charge me a "high risk" rate. Entrepreneurs are the persecuted class in America at the moment, yet pols claim that small business will create jobs. I tried to make 4 new hires this year but I can't because the usual avenues of funding business expansion have been shut off. Loan sharks try to give me loans at 38%. This country is sick at the core and has lost the ability to generate jobs, train people and match them to available jobs, and structure unemployment benefits to encourage people to work part time legally without having their benefits cut. My wife works at a second job to get insurance because it is $17,000 per year for our family... that's working 40 hours a week to pay health insurance for a family of 4. The insanity is so deep that you are apparently blind to it. It's wrong and needs to change from the core. And where I live about 90% of the people I talk to support this (r)evolution.

[-] 1 points by Uspatriot5000 (128) 3 years ago

Yes, and they may agree, but it is up North. You don't see any of this mess going on here in the South. That is because just like our government, our country is split on ideology. That is why Congress is at a deadlock. You have half the country (give or take) that sides with the Liberals\Progressives and half the country that that is more Conservative. Therefore, our government represents our population. That is why I say this whole thing is a waste of time. You don't have a majority, so you cannot change anything.

[-] 1 points by Decoy4924 (44) 3 years ago

Thank you for the information regarding various incidents if possible could you site the rest of your sources I would like to look into them further. As to the your figures regarding the acceptance of OWS they are slightly flawed first the group polled was 1,000 people from a single area second the figures you showed are 2 weeks old which is important to note. They initial poll 2 weeks prior was only 25% which means in 2 weeks popularity grew by 10% which if the polling of these small groups can be considered accurate is a huge gain. To your last point OWS is not united on any one single point so to say they are a socialist movement would be incorrect some only want tax and policy reform to others wanting new government meaning there is no single descriptor for this movement. Thank you for your insights there is much to think about.

[-] 1 points by Uspatriot5000 (128) 3 years ago

Also, small business owners in the area of protest are getting fed up and may start "fighting back" against the OWS:

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/money/recession/occupy-wall-street-destroying-business-main-street

"Things were good before the protests began,” the manager of another local establishment said. “Now it’s going to be hard to pay the rent.”

“People have lost 40 percent, 50 percent, 60 percent of their sales,” said another"

"A business owner near the Occupy Wall Street encampment claims she has been repeatedly harassed and threatened with bodily harm by protesters after she and her employees refused to give in to their outlandish demands.

“I’ve been told, ‘Watch your back!’ 10 times,” Stacey Tzortzatos, owner of Panini & Co. Breads, located across from Zuccotti Park

[-] 1 points by Decoy4924 (44) 3 years ago

Very interesting with some valid points the poll information especially which seems support has grown slightly. The main point I took away from all the reading was the protest itself needs more organization and training. The other was the high percent that still have no idea what this movement is about which leads me to believe the movement needs more PR. The different incidents involving the business owners is regrettable but expected this is a large protest businesses will be affected still they should not need suffer threats and vandalism as well. Thank you for the information I hope to use this to strengthen the movement.

[-] 1 points by Uspatriot5000 (128) 3 years ago

There are also reports that many of these small business owners in the area of the NY protest are going to start protesting and opposing the OWS movement. That is going to bring additional issues. This will be "main street", not Wall Street pushing the opposition. Also, reports that those in the general public are getting fed up with the "drumming" noise and other issues. Therefore, there are getting ready to be more PR problems.

That was the news story given to me if you have further details and if possible a sited source I would be very grateful. You seem to had a knee jerk reaction to my request I do like this movement but I also see a need to be aware of what this movement may turn into. I apologize if I caused you any confusion and thank you in advance for supplying me more information regarding the DC incident.

If I can find the video being filmed from the other side I'll post that too. It clearly shows that the old lady was pushed over by her '1%' friend--the 'comb-over'--who starts swearing at the protesters as soon as he mows his way over the old lady.

You can see the kid in the white shirt filming on the other side at around 1:10-1:20.

As for the lady that actually fell down the stairs, the footage is inconclusive, but the general consensus is that there are no OWS nearby. And there was a 'ripple effect' as 'comb-over' forcefully pushed his way through people which caused her to fall.

[-] 1 points by Decoy4924 (44) 3 years ago

Thank you this was quite informative and I think helps you understand my point. We need to look at the negative to find if it is true by doing so we either disprove or find something we need to correct. I appreciate your effort of bringing this article forward.

[-] 1 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 3 years ago

You're welcome, thank you equally. I personally think that OWS has no place in trying to 'lock-and-block' people at this point in the movement, whoever they may be (perhaps when the movement matures, these actions may be more appropriate.) But right now, There are so many more productive ways we can get our point across.

Write to your local main stream media outlet. There is NO bad news about OWS incidents like you cite in the MSM. They are not at all objective and want portray OWS to be the antithesis to the Tea Party, which it is not.

[-] 1 points by Decoy4924 (44) 3 years ago

The stories I gave as an example are the stories placed in the news which does not mean they are 100% merely they are what is initially known of the situation. I don't like having one sided view positive or negative that is why I wanted some negative placed on the site so it can confronted and assessed. I apologize if you dislike confronting negative media but this is something that must be done if we want the movement to grow.

[-] 1 points by yoss33 (269) 3 years ago

I have seen several forums that successfully operate in a functional, productive way. To say it isn't possible is wrong in my opinion. It may need more attention towards (hopefully fair) moderation, and the idea of sub-forums categorized would make it so much more streamlined for easier use.

If one were serious about doing it, it could be done. And with many occupations being evicted, why not invest in cultivating a good online base. After all, aren't they/we also part of the 99%?

My 2 cents.

Jeez.... that doesn't surprise me one bit!!!! Actually, Tea Party rallies HAVE HAD violence. And OWS protesters don't tote guns to their protests, and the OWS protests are much larger. They do, however, attack and beat up white people who don't agree with them and who counter-protest at their rallies.

[-] 1 points by LoneStar3 (45) 3 years ago

A man was shot and killed Thursday just outside the Oakland encampment that anti-Wall Street protesters have occupied for the last month, but organizers said the attack was unrelated to their ongoing protest (You knew they would say that..Duh) of U.S. financial institutions and that some of their own were the first ones to administer first aid.

Police Chief Howard Jordan said a preliminary investigation suggests the shooting resulted from a fight between two groups of men at or near the Occupy Oakland camp on a plaza in front of City Hall. During the altercation, one of the men pulled out a gun and fired several rounds into a crowd on the plaza's edge,

Not only do OWS protesters tote them....They are using them...

"Taxpayer March on Washington

Protesters walking towards the United States Capitol during the Taxpayer March on Washington, September 12, 2009.

Main article: Taxpayer March on Washington

On September 12, 2009, Tea Party protests were held in various cities around the nation. In Washington, D.C., Tea Party protests gathered to march from Freedom Plaza to the United States Capitol. Estimates of the number of attendees varied, from "tens of thousands"[6] to "in excess of 75,000".[119][120] A rally organizer asserted that one local ABC News station had reported attendance of over one million, but he retracted the statement after ABC News denied making any such report.[121]

Using the most generous counts of those in attendance, the march may have been the largest conservative protest ever held in Washington, D.C., as well as the largest demonstration against President Obama's administration to date.[122][123]"

Yeah, about sums it up, oh and they "racist"! Just cause the left get to tag anyone they don't like or doesn't agree with them as "racist".

[-] 1 points by Decoy4924 (44) 3 years ago

I don't think your being completely accurate many arguments put forth by the tea party are not all that different from OWS. Major tax reform anti-corruption, and power given to the common man to institute change. In a sense the Tea Party is very much apart of change OWS is trying to make. The fact OWS is not set on any single point makes the definition of who is OWS very debatable. Defining Tea Party on majority stereo types seems very unfair just like how many view OWS by stereotypes. In the future please be more fair in your judgments of others but I do thank you for your insight into the issue.

I'll give you credit where credit is due.

My question is, given the virtually infinite number of other things you could be doing with your time, why bother? Why not go do something with the Tea Party? Why not take up a hobby? Do you view OWS as a threat? Are you just bored with a lot of spare time? Why not do something similar in your own community, like, say, shooting road signs with pellet guns or crapping in the public reservoir?

I think splitting the the main page up into segments would be a bad idea, as people would stop checking the media/press stuff, they might even not check for events as often. I'm not a local, so the events/press mean little to me, however I do keep tabs on the events so I can watch the news/media/streams. But if everything was seperate, I would likely, only check the main news feed. Someday Occupy will need hundreds of forums. But I do not feel that is the day for that.I've dealt with web design for years, and for the current given size of the operation, I would say that it has plenty of room to grow before the forums need split. I agree with what you say however, but the thing is, is it better to have one main blog, with comments, or a true forum, with 8000 sub forms, each with one post?

You know what makes it possible Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.'s non-violent protests to work? Well...it was the fact they would walk straight up to a line of troops/police and take a beating in front of witnesses and the media.

Watching people who are being beaten for being non-violent, well that outraged people. But apparently people are willing to accept people being pepper sprayed and tear gassed if they don't obey.

Is it surprising that people are turning to violence during their protests. Have you seen the brutal response police made in Oakland and most places to people refusing to move.

Protesters experienced something akin to torture (pain until compliance) and you say they are asses... they're in the wrong.

Apparently non-violent protests don't work anymore because the silent majority feels pepper spray is an acceptable response when people refuse a police officers order.....

Previous elections nationwide have been met with weak turnouts for years. With almost half of the voting-age population not even voting as such was the turnout in the 2008 presidential election.

I challenge you, the 99%, to Occupy Voting Booths.

If your goal is "returning the US back into the hands of its individual citizens", make sure the people that the 99% is voting into office isn't against those things. Otherwise, things get kind of counter-productive.

Occupy Voting Booths! Get organized and get the right people into office.

This blog is a cherry picking garbage writer. When you follow it to the source you learn how misguided such criticism is. (At least I hope you agree!!)

"According to meeting minutes posted on a Facebook page for the “Oakland General Assembly,” the group’s lawyer, Tim Fong, will temporarily keep a $20,000 donation from Occupy Wall Street in a Wells Fargo account, until he can finalize paperwork needed to open a credit union account for the group. The move is necessary to expedite the money’s availability for bailing out jailed protesters, the minutes said."

Yes this is a brilliant idea. Tell the public to spread the message through graffiti and vandalism. This will surely win over the public. Oh what's that? It's just chalk on the sidewalk.... You didn't say to vandalize or tag buildings.... Silly rabbit that doesn't matter.

Black PR has a handful of simple, easy guidelines on how to ruin a movement. One of the big ones is: You only need a little truth. See all it takes is someone to go write death threats on a mayors house, or tag a corporations building or a bank for the press to go into a feeding frenzy. When the press then reports it they'll say that so-and-so quoted OWS as telling them to go and do it and then they'll cut to this website and use excerpts from it.

Sure in actuality you said use chalk on the sidewalk but all that's needed is a little truth remember. You said go out and spread the message by writing it. I give it a week before this happens.
