Revision as of 19:51, 21 April 2013

[Back to Occupy Strategy Planning Page]

This page is to LIST THE ORGANIZATIONS that are out there fighting for change and to show how they contribute to our vision, or are detracting from getting us there. This is "our view", as it develops. This went through a few rounds on the Occupy-Strategy list, before the information was consolidated and put here.

Scroll down to see both the categories that we're using (change them if you like) and which groups falling into which categories:

CATEGORIES:

  1. 1 profit focused/predatory capitalists and their agents. ALEC, US Chamber of Commerce (as oppose to the locals)
  1. 2 socialists and professional lobbiers, advocacy groups, organization/empire builders w/vested interest in relationships with media and/or no-change government) These groups "talk 3" but "act 2". Reformers that want to keep #1 intact. Groups that take and pander to big money, donors and legisators.
  1. 3 soft sustainable (triple bottom line) capitalism, and their agents advocacy groups without a vested interest in profit-over-people, building large salaries for themselves, or economic growth in and of itself)

CONSOLIDATED LIST (includes Brandi's list, but I took out Sundance and SXSW...and media events PLEASE ADD INFO ABOUT WHAT THESE GROUPS ARE ACTUALLY DOING...it's hard to tell from their rhetoric.
