This content is user submitted and not an official statement

So, noting that no one really speaks FOR the OWS movement, here are some MIT people, talking about what they think is next for the Occupy Movement, and some good questions from the audience...which was sadly sparse.

http://www.c-span.org/Events/Next-Steps-for-the-Occupy-Movement/10737436352/

What do YOU think is next for the Occupy Movement? What hopes and wishes do you have?

*What steps can we realistically take to accomplish those goals?

(*HAVE YOU READ MY MOTION?)

What...?

[-] 2 points by KofA (495) from Muenster, TX 1 year ago

How do you propose we accomplish that, exactly?

[-] 1 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

EXACTLY:
We can do what 80% of Americans say they want
We can do what 1,900,000 Americans signed
We can do what 363 local & state resolutions call for
We can do what 1,309 American mayors endorsed


Virtually every OWS goal –
jobs, taxes, government honesty, energy, environment, economy
all go back to EXACTLY one place
MONEY IN POLITICS

And there is EXACTLY one first step:

╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬═╬

A constitutional amendment to
Overturn Citizens United and Corporate Personhood

Good stuff, buddy.

+25

I like the first one..."restoring democracy" is something only citizens themselves can do by "Voting smart, or not at all."
