There are several working groups involved in "banking" and issues around "money". Please let us know if you want your group listed, or just liste it yourself.

General Concepts about economic/banking/financial reforms

SPECIFIC ACTIONS and WORKING GROUPS

  • Strike Debt collects money and buys debt on the wholesale "debt market" for pennies on the dollar in an aim to eliminate healthcare debt. The group has collected and bought MILLIONS of dollars in debt and free people from it!
  • Public Banking working group intends to establish a Massachusetts State Bank, and other alt money orgs. This group is actually working with the state now to establish this bank. Very exciting!
  • Credit To The People helps raise awareness about "how money works". This is with the aim to help people "decolonize" themselves from money as a "controlling" entity, and create alternatives which allow us to invoke sovereign control over our lives by devesting ourselves from traditional concepts of money, which are controlled by "central command". While the group may not technically be considered a working group of Occupy Boston because it wasn't around during the camp, many of the members of the camp helped organize Credit To The People, and so we believe it's worth putting on these pages.
  • End the Fed...the Boston part of this has become a part of Credit To The People, unless you know better. We can't find any of the original End The Fed working group(s) from Boston. Let us know if you know something, or change it here yourself. If you want the National Occupy working groups, check out www.interoccupy.net
