While You’re On Main Street, How You Can Help Keep Wall Street Occupied

November 2, 2011

“If you can’t occupy Wall Street, at least keep Wall Street occupied!!”

If you don’t want to sit through this video (which really isn’t that long AND he’s got a great dry humor and delivery!), here are his primary tactics:

You know those credit card applications that inundate our mailboxes and landfills with TRASH? They come with postage paid envelopes which you can use to generate a dialogue.

From the simplest to the most time consuming, try one or more of the following ideas from his video:

1. send the envelope back to the bank–just seal & send EMPTY
OR
2. send it back full with their crap so it costs them more in postage as well as anything else you think might interest them
OR
3. send them a note in their postage paid envelope–address it to the person who is opening their mail for peanuts a day w/o benefits, encourage them to join a union
OR
4. put a wooden shim OR a roofing shingle in your envelope so they have to pay even more to pay for their postage …also a message of course about why!

These tactices will force banks to react, to do something–if they get 100,000 “weird responses” they have to deal with…just imagine!

Finally, in your note, please remember that the person who is opening the mail is NOT the person to blame for the current economic crisis. They are in the same boat you are, just trying to survive even if it’s in a dead end job with little or no pay or benefits.

So, here’s how, if you can’t occupy Wall Street you can at least keep Wall Street occupied!!
