With the announcement that OccupyWallSt. is creating a newspaper to explain their objectives, intentions, and give an overview of those participating to elucidate the meaning behind their actions of Occupying, we really need to begin consolidating our ideas and gaining a clearer focus. There has yet to be a team dedicated to this purpose, and so I volunteer to assist with organizing all this information. Anyone who wants to help, please do! Anyone who is already attempting this, please contact me!

FIRST - The "Short Route"
Tim, firstname.lastname@example.org, is looking for anyone who can contribute concise phrases, for slogans or bumperstickers. I believe an example of this is "People Before Profits." - A very short statement that someone driving by would honk at in agreement. Buzzwords. Some of your sign-ideas may qualify.
I also like - "We are the under-employed and the over-educated."
WIth the above sentiment in mind, next is..
SECOND - The "Long Route:
Aimée, email@example.com, is putting out a call to any educated people who have researched corporate corruption, written papers, or know of reliable sources to cite with figures and facts. It is my hope to consolidate all the information into a clear and understandable outline, which can be used to notify and enlighten those in denial, brain-washed by propaganda etc., as well as give us a foundation for the legitimacy of our actions Occupying the city. If you have degrees or concentrations in poly-sci, sociology, business, journalism, anthropology, psychology, statistics, philosophy, etc., please dig through your old notes (the accurate ones, not the lies), compile sources. If you know of anyone personally who excels at reciting statistics regarding the wealth-gap, who can give detailed information about Big Pharma, Monsanto, etc., please speak with them and ask for their input. Importantly - What are our solutions? Also, I know that much of us are conspiracy theorists, and that is totally fine, but unless you have proof and credible resources backing your conspiracies, please do not use them here.
Although, another phrase I enjoy (maybe Tim will too) is:
Lets create Our World Order instead of the New World Order.
Even if you have no formal education, your input is greatly needed - What does your heart say, how has your own personal story been affected by our financial situation and the system? What are your values as a human being?
Please write it down and send it to me. By doing so please know you are giving me, and the team, permission to edit it, but only to integrate and merge the large amount of material. There is no intention to spin any of this - We are expressing our reality, which is completely valid.
