While I think it's good to be out in the stores and malls on Black Friday to give the masses an understanding of what the movement is all about. I'm not sure occupy the stores, or preventing people from doing their shopping will turn them on to our ideas. While I agree that Christmas is a season where people charge too much, and fall victim to big banks, and ignorant consumption, I feel that education is needed (and frankly those who have not joined the protests are demanding it). People want to know what's wrong, they want to know where we're going, but if you use the tactic of inhibiting them from a tradition they cherish, they may not listen to our ideals. However, since many folks will be out that day, it is a GREAT opportunity to inform them of problems they may not be aware of since a lot of them haven't done the research we all have, and are often misled by unprofessional news sources.
That's my opinion on that.
