20/10/2011 19:21:10What do I want to see changed? This is a fairly long list for me! Some of these items are:
· a taxation on financial transaction (check out the Robin Hood Tax) and the money raised used for fixing the problems,
· that the money that the government paid out on our behalf to prop up the failed financial system is repaid (complete with interest since these corporations would charge us interest if and when our government borrowed money from them),
· that corporations are held criminally and financially responsible for the destruction of they have inflicted on our common environment,
· to bring in a Buffet tax for the ultra rich in Canada,
· to increase the taxation of the corporate world and their upper management – the financial compensation of upper management is obscene when is compared to the income of the other employees,
· change the electoral system – the present first past the post system needs to become more representative of the actual voting population,
· invest more into education so that the cost of an education does not financially cripple people,
· support for more transitioning from conventional farming practices to organic agriculture,
· labelling of GMO food products,
· stop the spending on fighters jets and prisons and spend it on social programmes, education and preventative healthcare solutions,
· provide proper water filtration for native communities,
· greed/avarice is the detriment of our environment or society should not be rewarded but discouraged. The more obscene forms of greed/avarice should be treated as a criminal act and dealt with accordingly – crimes against the common good,
· reduce and eliminate subsidizes to large corporations especially oil corporations
· investment and the creation of a favourable environment for green energy production and the increase resource, energy and water efficiency
· reduce and eliminate the amount of transfer of public wealth to the private domain
· remove financial products that are not pure speculations and does not serve any purpose in the real world – ie. Derivatives, short selling, etc.
· improve the health of our food system
· if corporations wish to be viewed as good for our society then they need to practice good citizenship not the bad citizenship behaviour they are presently engaged in;
· figure out what is a living wage in Canada and ensure that everyone working can achieve this level of income;
· start planning to create a healthy and rewarding future for our children so that they have something to look forward to;
· stop resolving problems with military force;
· reduce and eliminate the influences of corporations from governments;
· and there are more!
Most of the above items I have mentioned are on the list is because they affront common human values - fairness, justice, respect.We need to live our lives what we wish to see in the world. We need to share our passion with those close to us and to assert our 'demands' to those that can change the paradigm and if they don't hear us we need to move to remove them - get elected in their stead, change where we shop, transport ourselves, and generally be in our society and the world.I am there with you when needed. I supply items when asked or I think they are needed.
I will help out with the Robin Hood Tax March and the November 5th day of action.

20/10/2011 20:47:30Personally my biggest concerns are the safety, health, and preservation of our planet and the people that inhabit it and who will inherit it. As any living creature our lives depend on food and the conditions of living. As intelligent beings we should be more focused on producing ideas that will help us thrive and reach our fullest potential rather than just worrying about basic survival and whether or not our planet will be able to sustain us in the years to come.Every person should take a social responsibility to help their fellow man for the betterment of all humans as a collective. Our personal desires should always come second to the needs of the group. A way of implementing this is to teach our children through the educational system and other programs that the need of all people together outweighs the need of just one. Critical thinking should also be promoted along with the importance of discerning fact from fiction in the information that is presented to you at any given time.

20/10/2011 20:58:40I would like to see money taken out of the equation entirely, BUT I know that isnt going to happen so I guess I would like to see caps on how much money one person can have. Maybe 1 billion? And ensure social programming covers basic neccessities which it currently does not.I propose this change because this earth was not created and handed down to the 1%. The earth is equally all of ours, it is wrong to steal the resources and hoard the money made from them. It would be different if the rich didn't pollute the environment so no one can really live off the land anymore. There is no reason one person should have billions of dollars and children starve to death. It is wrong!Appeal to the rich, try to find a common ground where they feel they are still making lots of money and we feel things are more fair. Perhaps by lowering prices on basic neccessities and paying higher wages so people aren't working minimun wage for a greedy corporation. Tax the rich and tax the corps!I can participate once or twice a week. I do have children and am responsible for 'activities' that come with raising them. :) I will bring them when possible though. Life is busy for many people, it can be hard to find time but a couple hours a week are manageable.

20/10/2011 21:12:40Remove interest based money systemBecause the Bankers run the world due to the fact that they create the money out of thin air then charge interest (that doesn't even exist in the money supply) on it.Have governments take back control of the money system from the 3rd party banks and then rescind all interest and make it illegal to charge interest hence forth.Family and I'm am uncertain what the Occupy demands to the world are.

Also I get the feeling that you are expecting someone else (ie Govt) to fix the very problem that they started or continue to perpetuate.

The real way to defeat them is to stop buying stuff, become self sufficient/sovereign and don't use banks. The system will unravel itself.

20/10/2011 23:01:04An increased minimum standard of quality living. This means that at MINIMUM, people should have unlimited access to food, water, education, work, shelter, transportation, a clean environment, time off (vacations) and entertainment. These are necessities to living as a happy human being.I believe that these things are necessary for any human being to be happy, any combination of the above isn't going to be a life you're happy with, it requires all of themThe biggest difference we can make is to raise minimum wage to something that we can actually live off of (20 dollars an hour at least). I would also love to see high-ranking executives take massive pay-cuts, there is no reason that any one man should be making tens of millions of dollars every year, while the people who are actually working to make the company function get paid next to nothing.I am a full time student, and I have to support myself while I finish school, but I come and volunteer when I can (Ryan the first aider)

21/10/2011 11:17:57Stop the war against Libya.Canada should not support or be involved in war crimes and crimes against humanity. (see Geneva convention) It is easily to achieve logistically.( 6 planes and a boat) Bring them home!! Perhaps we should ask why Elizabeth May was the ONLY PARLIAMENTARIAN TO VOTE AGAINST BOMBING LIBYA!! Only one vote to not bomb Libya ....... what a bunch of war mongers.
Awareness . If the Canadian people were aware of these crimes against humanity. They would demand our forces cease bombing civilian targets and stop assisting ground forces who are committing genocide against black Africans. Most Canadians don't realize that all the opposition parties (except green) voted with the government on this travesty of justice
simply google black genocide in Libya

21/10/2011 13:30:56I have been working on a Community Actualization Initiative in Edmonton for the past few months. Essentially this is a cyclical systemic initiative whereby individuals in need are offered free of charge personal change workshops. The project is financed by successful Edmonton businesses or individuals. The change in the life of the individual is profound and like a pebble dropping into our community pond, the shift ripples out to positively affect all persons and situations that individual encounters. I have worked for years with individuals who have been sexually abused in childhood. I want to be able to provide for survivors who live in economic stress to have an opportunity to make some profound life changes in a simple process that will benefit the community as a whole.I have been consistently advertising this Community Actualization Project that utilizes the success present in our city to foster success and wellness in those who need a hand up the ladder. What is of most interest to me, is that contrary to my thought of creating a holistic program, there are not enough persons willing to even attend the program much less to make the personal change necessary to create even a small shift in their lives. I had to cancel the October workshop due to only 2 persons registered! The funding is not the problem here. It is the unwillingness of persons to make personal change that is to their benefit. I did not see that coming! I have put up information on this solution oriented initiative at the site and so far no one has considered this solution based initiative a viable option for the many out there who have been sexually abused as kids. Statistically many persons have seen the program and ignored it. This is an interesting dynamic. I am out of the city for international training but my phone is on. There is an old cowboy proverb that says you can take a horse to water but you can't make him drink. I think a lot of people like the role of complaining and resenting the status quo to the degree that it becomes a preference to actually being the change they want. I wish your movement success. Solution oriented in the way I move and hope you are the same, Anni

21/10/2011 13:47:04People being generous, selfless, loving, and compassionate: in essence, more like Jesus. However, this change begins in a person's spirit, and no amount of petitioning and protest will change that. It has to be a choice. You cannot force people to be generous.

A more feasible change would be to remove the influence of corporations/special interest groups in politics.
I advocate this idea because I believe that the views of the majority are not reflected in special interest groups, be they siding with the extreme left or right-wings.
People should not be able to buy the results they want from politicians. These actions diminish the power of the vote.
1. We should petition governments and become more active in the political arena. We need to let politicians know what we (the majority) want for Canada and the world by voting and communicating with our representatives.
2. We should speak to the corporations with our consumer power. Only buy things from responsible corporations who conduct business ethically.
3. November 5th, some people are proposing moving their money from bank accounts to credit unions. I think this would send a loud message to the corporate world.
I am a nursing student. I have to do criminal record checks whenever I apply for jobs. If I get arrested, it will affect my future ability to attain a job, and I believe I can make a huge difference in peoples' lives as a registered nurse. I do not want a protest I decided to participate in to interfere with my ability to do that.
I'm also in school full-time and I need to be there in order to get the marks I am shooting for.
13
21/10/2011 14:50:20I'd really like to see freed from the influence of money in order to ensure more equitable representation of everyone in spite of their financial resources.

I believe that what is being proposed by the Occupy Wall Street's Declaration of the 99% to acheive that objective could be implemented in Canada as well with some minor modifications.
The best way to ensure that all issues are properly addressed is to ensure that all interested parties are taken into equitable consideration.
Deciding how to customize the Declaration of the 99% to suit the canadian situation and economy and then following a similar process to the one outoned in that declaration.
14
21/10/2011 15:46:48I would like to propose that Canada's Federal government go to a flat tax system.I believe that a flat tax system is fairer to Canadians and will bring about real tax reform. No longer will there be any corporations getting multi billion dollar tax refunds, and no more will the burden be carried by middle class work poor citizens alone.Bring these demands to our rallies and write our politicians. Make this a national initiative that all Occupy x protesters support.
15
21/10/2011 16:31:05more focus on sustainability than economy, and treat drug use as a public health issue rather than a crimesustainability is key, we have a limited amount of resources and we must use them wisely, and prohibition does not prevent drug usepermaculture, human power, renewable energy sources, public trasportation, and education on sustainability
16
21/10/2011 16:35:14That, globally, we examine our hearts (not 1% of us or 99% of us, but 100% of us) to the end of recognizing that the purpose of all commercial entreprise, all business, is to serve, not to profit. We are on this earth to look out for one another and the planet, not to become rich. The sentiments I have expressed above stand against the callousness, not of capitalism so much as the neo-liberal expression of capitalism. Capitalism, properly motivated and regulated, need not be the rapacious system it is. It could be simply a market economy, only a healthy one. Why not? Humans are entrepreneurial; humans are traders. These are inherently human activities that can be pursued morally.

Unfortunately, we have dug ourselves into a very deep hole, and huge changes to the capitalist marketplace under its neo-liberal conception are necessary. Russian style communism truly did fail. Neo-liberal capitalisn is an equivalent evil. I advocate the movement as a means of contending with that evil.
In our high schools and universities (and the latter must be removed from the grip of the corporations), the neo-liberal spirit should be challenged in the curricula. It requires only to understand it and to compare it to alternatives to see how horrifying it is as an expression of the human spirit.

Every effort must also be made in our educational and political systems to investigate and take seriously the many, alternatives to neo-liberal capitalism that exist. The notion that the only choice is neo-liberal capitalism or Soviet style communism is ridiculous. There are many, many alternative economic possibilities. The literature exists, but the will to bring it before the public is absent in the mainstream.

Unless we open our eyes to the alternatives and force them onto the political agenda of the western "democracies", we will continue to live in neo-liberal plutocracies.

21/10/2011 17:09:37Small working farms, meaningful labour, and clean water & air The banks and corporations must pay for "unmeaningful" transactions: shareholders serve no function, yet make mega-bucks & wield undue control over politicians. There should be an adequate and fair monetary charge for all of their "meaningless" transactions. These charges would go to the betterment of citizens' situations: homes for the homeless, social safety net, hospitals, schools, and universities & day-cares.1. Corporations & profit making banks will pay a financial transactions fee that will NOT be passed onto consumers.
2. Corporations will not have "natural persons" status under the law. They are socio-pathic organizations and will be controlled by tighter regulations to enable ordinary people to deal with them without "losing the farm"
3. Corporations and rich people will be taxed progressively at a substantial rate for income over 300,000/annum
4. Corporations and rich people will not be allowed to donate to political parties or election campaigns above $3000/annum
5. The Lobbyist's Act will only allow Corporations to influence politicians at a rate equal to the activity of an average citizen.
I live 5 hours north of Edmonton. I am connected by email and see all the planning going on.
I am running as an NDP candidate in this region, and I am devoting myself to getting elected so change can be effected via the Legislature.

21/10/2011 17:57:42I'd like to see a world run according to anarchist principles. A world free from oppressive systems and hierarchies. Where people are free to develop themselves to the best of their abilities, and pursue knowledge and scientific advancement. And a world where people aren't bound in what they do in life by things like finances.Well because I think the world would be a better place if everyone could get along and had the chance to pursue their interests. Not only for people but also for the environment.You tell me.
Really, I don't have the answers. I do my best to go to events (protests, demos ect). Try to distribute literature, talk to people, just stuff like that.
I'm sure I'd be able to make it out to an event or two.

21/10/2011 18:01:23What I purpose has more to do with healthcare. My major concern is how the entire system is operated like a for-profit organization. Pharmaceuticals are being made and sold with massive profit. Companies are prohibiting generic versions to be made to ensure maximum profit. When Jonas Salk cured polio, he released the process for free because he believed that was better fir the world to have free medicine.
My proposal is that major medical research firms and pharmaceuticals be converted to a not-for-profit organization. With that they too should be exposed to a truer capitalism, which means that smaller companies could sustain local needs by producing generic version. Healthcare should be open for mass production at a not for profit way.
I propose this because too many people around the world and locally by constraints of their health. While Canada does have publically funded healthcare, it does not cover all treatments, and drugs which could become very expensive for people. The lack of compassion from companies for countries without any funding (africa) is horrendous. Some companies do not support sending drugs over for free while others send far less than they could and should.
It has become more profitable to treat cancer than to cure. Too many people are dying around the world because 1) they can't afford medicine 2) they dont have insurance 3) they have no access to healthcare
I have no two ideas about how to do this:
1) government buys the pharmeceuticals, not for the net market value, but for the value of the drug recipes they hold. The government will hold the rights to the recipes and will sell recipes to any new registered company in given regions to allow for a vast variety of jobs across the country. The various new drug companies will sell their drugs either under an oligopoly system rather than the massive monopoly the old system held.

2) convert all drug companies into a non-for-profit organization regulating their costs and expenses, including bonuses. This is currently done in Alberta with Casinos technically being a non-profit organization. This limits how items within the casino stay regulated on top of gambling laws. If registered under a not-for-profit, they would have to change the audit system for them.

21/10/2011 20:21:21fairness, equality, much less discrepancy b/w rich and poor. Less of an emphasize on the environment more of an emphasis on social change. The devastation of the environment is a symptom of the problem, the core of the problem is social construct. we all deserve to be treated fairly, have equal opportunities. Change the way decisions are made, decentralize power, welcome and implement opportunities for participatory democracy structures in every community. Busy. Busy. Busy. Also what does one do when they show up at the camp? A little intimidating for some I would think. Offering choices to people to do things from home or in their community is a great approach in inviting the inclusion of others without displacing themselves to a central location. Perhaps we need occupy edmonton committees in every community?

Thanks for this invitation to provide feedback. Helps me feel as though I am contributing.

Kudos to all your work!

21/10/2011 20:42:03No more control over food/seeds and support our local farmers...take our food resources back and stop growing in mass production that are destroying the land.When I go to the grocery store and see that the only fruits and vegetables that are available are the ones that have traveled across the world, used an enormous amount of fossil fuels and has lost most, if not all, it's essential vitamins just getting here. Not to mention the herbicide/pesticide that can cause serious irreversible health effects...if you only knew. I won't get started with the Genetically Modified Foods that are not regulated to inform you that they are GMO. And to top this all off, we pay ridiculous amounts of our hard earned dollars towards something that could be easily rectified by education to support your local farmer. The average Canadians struggle to pay for healthy fruits and vegetables and opens the doors for organic growers to dig in your pockets even deeper when it is your right to have fresh healthy food for your family. Taking government dollars that get used for corporate bail-outs and create grants for farmers to feed Canadians.


"Not until we have cut down the last tree will we learn that we can’t eat money"
I am very impressed that this has been created for it is one thing to hold up a sign to shout out to the world what makes you angry, but to hold up another in the other hand that identify a solution.
May you all have the strength of eagles wings, and the courage to soar high and the wisdom to take you there.

21/10/2011 22:15:51I'd like our communities to know they have the right to dissent and for their voices to be heard by their political representatives. I'd like those political representatives to then represent them.

I'd like democracy to involve more than an election every few years.
We don't vote, we don't speak, we can't organize ourselves, we don't know how to grow our own food, build homes, be neighbours, be friends, etc. Show everyone that we have voices and aren't powerless. Effect just one change, win one fight and let everyone know that it's possible.

Teach each other how to be human again by listening and respecting.

Let's leave our homes and not be consumers or employees.
My kids were bored at the camp.

21/10/2011 22:17:36-No more legal hidding with the corprations able to tie things in courts for 60 or 100 years.

- No more Mining the citizens for there money, and stop building and making merchandise that is faulty and disposable in order to have return business, this produces higher demands for resources, and more stress on the garbage facility.

- More PUBLICLY CONTROLED Busness that use public services, like water. building more de-salenization and trying to restore the alarmingly falling fresh water table levels.

- Reconnect with earth, grow more natural foods, not genetically modified.
- illegalization of scuside seeds, food plants that will not produce proper seeds so that you have to buy them again. food should not be controlled this way.

All round democracy, if 51% of the people accept somthing, and want somthing, legalized, Banned or criminalized, its done BY THE PEOPLE, not by the goverment. We are suppose to be above the government, it was by the people for the people.
Life hasbeomce a continuous Legality and life counting debit that never ends unless you where born into the right family.

Your starting in the right way. And if anyone says that your not, well how menny revolutions have we gone through alredy to be where we are?, maby things would have been best if we dident take partin them?.. I Have no way of getting there, but i do spread the word, and seed and help others know whats going on. i been fallowing this for quite some time now and have always supported this movement.


Power to the 99%

21/10/2011 23:38:45On a global scale, I would like to see greater democracy and accountability in international relations. I'd like to see trade to be better regulated in order to avoid such drastic shifts between boom and bust.

On a national level, I would like to see major constitutional reform, with greater moves towards bilingualism, increased representation and recognition of aboriginals and their rights, and a EEE senate. I think Canada would greatly benefit from better democratic representation, and I propose a move toward a European-style republic, with additional cues taken from the American system of checks and balances. I would also like to see proportional representation implemented in the House of Commons, at least to some degree.
I propose these changes in order to achieve a greater voice for the common person, so that she or he may stand up for her/his beliefs and values.

With more representation, we can better combat the ultra-capitalists who control our economy/society/state and avoid the pitfalls of capitalism to a greater extent.
We need to continue the protests, we need to speak to the media and write letters to the editor, and most importantly, we need to run for office and change things from within.

Academic contributions are also very important.
25
22/10/2011 07:24:51- End state sponsored private monopolies (Crony Capitalism). For example stop bailing out the banks, stop subsidizing oil companies, allow more competition in the ISP industry, get rid of the anti competitive and anti free speech intellectual property laws.
- Increase government transparency.
- More proportional representation in the legislature.
- More civil liberties: protect privacy and free speech online, focus more on crime prevention & rehabilitation rather than punishment.
I'm a strong supporter of free markets and more power & control to the individual.We should find demands that we are sure that 99% of Edmontonians and people around the world will agree on, and from those demands formulate specific laws that would partially satisfy those demands. Make sure we get many signatures of approval and bring the proposed laws to parliament (federal and local if it applies).

I've seen people cry out for things like free education, ending poverty, and putting more taxes on the rich. But I don't think such demands are a good idea. 99% of people do not believe in bigger goverment (which these demands would imply). We should stay focused on what unites the 99%.
I come there from time to time, but I'm pretty busy with work...
26
22/10/2011 12:50:37- Eliminate all avenues of corporate influence from the political process
- Eliminate all avenues of corporate influence on research and development in the fields of agriculture and medical sciences
- Adjust tax laws to tax corporations properly, at a rate determined through a democratic process, and in a way that prevents them from avoiding taxes with loopholes and creative accounting
- Eliminate ALL government subsidies of fossil fuel based energy projects, instead re-allocate those subsidies to only sustainable and clean energy research and development projects of which there are many
- Eliminate outlawing and patenting of ALL forms of life
- Legalize, tax, and regulate all synthetic pharmaceuticals, with the taxes used to cover treatment of abusers
- Legalize, tax, and regulate prostitution
To ensure a sane, safe future for our children. Also, to create a world I would like to live in for the rest of my life. We need to reverse the trend toward becoming a corporate controlled police states before its too late .Meet and discuss these issues with all occupy movements across Canada. When a consensus of proposed changes is reached demand a Canada-wide referendum for each change in question.Work gets in the way, and I live three hours away and have obligations there.
27
22/10/2011 18:28:10I don't know about change in the whole wide world, but in my corner of it? I would like to see physically disabled people like me treated like human beings. I would like to see the monthly AISH amount doubled to $2000 a month so someone like me has the possibility of living in an apartment that is safe and doesn't make me sick because of mold, for example. I'd like the chance to live in a livable apartment and afford food and renter's insurance and utlilities. I'd like to see a cap put on rent (a maximum price per square foot) and a cap on utility prices. I'd like a cap put on bank service charges for people like me living below the poverty line through no fault of their own.
I'd like access to basic medical care and not excuses that there aren't enough doctors, so keep on looking for a doctor, sista.
I'd like the food bank to hand out edible food instead of food that's already months or years past it's expiry date and 'fresh' produce and bread that's covered with mold, and I'd like the food bank to not put a limit to the number of times per year one can gave access to food. Or for the government to issue coupons for grocery stores ONLY good for fresh fruits or vegetables or meat.
I'd like for my prescriptions to be 100% covered through AISH. I'd like dental work I need done to be covered by AISH (who only cover part of only emergency work).
I'd like to be able to feel like a human being. I'd like to not be one of the 99% used as a stepping stone for big corporations and politicians to get richer off of.
How can I think about the rest of the world and about changes for the rest of the world when every day in my life is a challenge, every day is filled with pain and stress and uncertaintly and anxiety?
I propose the changes because of personal experience. I CAN'T be the only one in Canada going through what I've been going through since I was hit by a hit-and-run driver who ruined my life several years ago.
I'm excited for the first time in years about Occupy, because you actually give a voice to people like me. People who the 1% pretend don't exist.
In a perfect world, politicians could be made to care enough to change policies and loosen purse strings for something other than their own benefit. Banks would cut us some slack re: service charges. Local, provincial and federal governments could be made to help the most vulnerable in society. In a perfect world. I'm physically disabled after a car 'accident' several years ago. But I couldn't 'qualify' (or afford) rehabilitation. The tiny apartment I'm in makes me sick due to mold so I'm almost constantly on antibiotics, which AISH won't cover the whole cost of. Due to the high cost of apartments that are handicapped accessible, after five months of looking, I still can't find a new apartment. I'm in pain after the accident and in dental pain, but I can't begin to afford to have dental work done (AISH only pays most of the cost of emergency dental work) and most dentists won't see me because I'm on AISH. My doctor retired four years ago and I've been bounced around constantly by a system that claims I should just "keep trying" to find a new doctor, and when I think I've found one who will see me, they send me a letter saying I have ongoing health issues so I should find a doctor who has more time to deal with me. I can't get homecare help because I can't afford it. The list goes on. No matter how hard I try, I can't even break even, let alone get ahead. When I first heard about Occupy, I thought there's not one part of my life that couldn't be made so much better if only I had enough money. And I started thinking about all the corporations and businesses and politicians and other greedy 1% people who have me where they want me... under the sole of their shoe.
I've had it! I want to join the 99%. I just don't know what I can "do", since I can't even help myself.

22/10/2011 20:24:12As a single parent that has raised three children,I can relate to the struggles of those that have been hit with hard times. I have also, along with two of my children, experienced hunger, as we ended up on welfare after my husband was killed in a car crash 27 years ago. Now, am not only a mother, but also a grandmother, I own a home, I have a great job, which pays me well. We are very comfortable. But I am compelled to join the occupation, because I know in my heart that it is right and the time has obviously come to stand up and have a voice. Not only for myself but for my children, my grandchildren, those that have no voice because they have be suppressed for so long, those that have a voice but are afraid, or, are unsure of what is truly happening globally. Here is my list: Take profit out of politics (People before Profit); The economic system, banks, stockmarket, etc, needs to be changed so that it works for all of us not just the rich elitists; We need to start focusing on humanity,and our beautiful, incredible mother earth. There is no need see people starving or suffering, when there is abundance globally, STOP raping our earth, when there is an abundance of natural resources we could be using for energy; Start correcting our health care system/insurance system so that people stop dyeing needlessly. Make treatment available for all, pharmaceutical companies and the govenment should be charged with murder for not providing the necessities of life to those that require it; Education should be a right for all, not just those that can afford it. No one should be burdened with debt leaving univeristy or college. The above list is in no particular order. The Human Race has been lead to believe that they are different from each other globally. We are now awakening to the realization that our needs are all the same! In Solidarity with the Global Occupation Sending much love to you that have truly occupied Edmonton! Heather Hudson * *

23/10/2011 16:47:48There is no singular issue. To break things into stand alone issues is to continue in the footsteps of the system we claim to have problems with.

There needs to be a greater ecumenical/holistic/less endogenous/etc way of viewing the ills/woes/issues of this society we live in, and the way we approach the solutions to these injustices.

For example, look at the cycle of poverty. Simply throwing money or effort at a singular aspect of the entire cycle doesn't address the entire root causes, nor will it break the cycle for those that aren't in a position to be helped by a narrow focus attempt to 'help.' Which is the next thing to stop doing. Stop helping, and start supporting people and their issues. You cannot be an ally unless you have asked if those people or that group actually wants/needs your support in their struggle. Simply claiming you are in support can do more harm than good. Merely trying to 'help' doesn't teach anyone to deal with their issues themselves, nor does it build community strength. Envision the neo-colonial help offered by the white Europeans in Africa.
I propose these things because to do otherwise is crap. It will merely perpetuate the same old classicist sort of hegemony that exists now, just under some different label.These things happen slowly. By accepting your position, privilege and what you can actually do that is a massive start. Next begin to listen when people address issues that they find disconcerting. Rather than getting defensive, admit that there might be something to it, and bring it to a committee of others so that it isn't such a personal matter. Learn to let go, learn to give up control and let others lead the way. Not because they are more experienced, but because you know they will benefit from it more at times.

Agitate for as much/many local solutions that will benefit as many of the most vulnerable as much of the time as possible. Give up as much of your privilege, what ever it may be, whenever you can.
I am on disability and have physical limitations.
I work in the inner city and thus deal with really intense things. Sometimes I just cannot summon the compassion to deal with anymore by the end of the day.
I am involved in various other activist organizations and through them can provide some insights and guidance to support you, but the heavy lifting needs to be done by each person themselves. We will each come to knowledge in our own way and at our own time. There is no scale of who is better prepared or has the best set of info. That is why there should always be a diverse set of voices at all times.

24/10/2011 13:11:41"giving it away": money, power, status all need to be re-shifted. I would like to see a culture which places the highest importance on sharing. In that world, you lose status if you don't share what you have. Similar to west coast Indian potlaches - those who have a lot are required to give it away, or loose thier social standing. so many of the issues we are talking about all stem from inequality and consolidated power. even within our own camp there are isues of disparity. we can address our own politics and address the global situation with the same statement: "share power, share resources, listen to the those who are affected by the decision. if you insist on exerting power without consent, then your illegitimacy becomes grounds for your removal."unfourtunately, change in our society happenes slowly. instituting a new ethics code for corporations is neccesary. (we could push this starting with melcor - asking them to simply give us the the park.) where humanity becomes the new bottomline rather than profit.

getting big business out of govt is of course a good idea.... but i'm talking about changing culture and ideology, not just policy. but i guess policy changes are a good place to start.
i'm there as much as i can be. i have kids, pets, a day job.... i have given all my free time and organizing potential to this movement and it feels so good to do so. and when i'm not there, i completely trust in those who continue to hold it down. <3

24/10/2011 13:48:27For the short term the proposal is to:
# Freeze student loan repayment (banks and lenders don't need the money)
# Stop foreclousures (banks and lenders don't need the money)
# Set a minimum 1% tax on all sales in stock markets

For the medium term as follows:
* Downgrade the legal status of corporations (to less rights than people)
* To make central banks and their reserves fully nationalised
* Prossecute for irregularities on national reserves and high volume transations (over 1million $)
* Issue new money

For the long term:
# Change the Governmental structure to similar of Cooperatives or Unions
# Impose limits on private ownership and create unactractive tax on wealthy class
# Redistribute work so everyone contributes and enjoys life
# A Education system vocation oriented and with less broad subjects
# Change from a monetary system to a resource based system (see Venus Project)
I propose the aforementioned changes because there is enough abundance, wealth, wisdom and harmony for everyone!These changes should be put into place by the use of Large scale online petitions and handed over officially to the Government.

The change of a governamental system aforementioned is beyond my current scope and there is plenty of time to understand a transition and it's steps.
Im not residing in Canada.

24/10/2011 17:22:31All corporate lobbying to be abolished completely.Because the democratic will of the people is subverted by unelected corporate lobbyists. Our governments do the bidding of the corporations, instead of the people. I feel that if lobbying were to be abolished, this may reduce corporate influence over our government.Start a petition stating "Do you favour abolishment of corporate lobbyists"? The greater the number of people who sign, the better. Then, present the petition to an elected government official, preferably before media presence (for maximum impact).I did participate actively in the October 15th demonstration, but could not camp in the park because I had to look after my elderly father. But I support the movement 100%. This should have been done a long time ago.

24/10/2011 18:00:53Increase the tax on the higher income brackets and corporations, increase the environmental tax on corporations, issue a loan from the Bank of Canada in order to pay off Canada's debt, then increase spending to social programs (such as a livable wage program), healthcare and education. An overhaul of the first past the post electoral system as it does not represent the majority of what Canadian's want. And finally putting restrictions on the amount of money that can be given to a political party campaign. Increasing the tax on those with a higher income (in the millions) means more tax dollars are available to put into programs that help the many rather than the few. Erasing Canada's debt will also decrease the tax pressures on everyone as well as reaffirm that we are a sovereign independent country. Healthcare and education are two fundamental institutions here in Canada and they have done nothing but suffer under corporate greed. With corporate limitations of donations to a campaign, as well as eliminating the first past the post electoral system, will significantly reduce some of the influence corporate business has on our politics and maybe even bring back some democracy to the political process.Obviously if the Harper government is not willing to do what is best for the people he represents in our country we need to put them to a non-confidence vote and vote in a party with little to no corporate backing (such as the NDP or Green party) on the guarantee that they will begin the new legislation immediately.I've been recently ill and only started to get better. I've tried to attend as many rallies as I can but sometimes I just physically can't.

25/10/2011 20:12:33The elimination of the monetary system, and it replaced with a resource-based economy.Because the monetary system is the root of all problems. There are many band-aid fixes being discussed, but the problems between the rich and poor along with the complete degradation of our planet will continue as long as the monetary system, which thrives because of profit, exists.It is a personal change that must occur. A truly grass-roots ideal shift. The very beliefs we all have must be challenged; people must be encouraged to start thinking in critical ways. The intelligent management of resources for the longevity of the planet and humans would benefit 100% of us.The changes would not be "put into place," for those kinds of phrases must be replaced, for they imply a centralized leadership. There can be no us & them any longer. There can be no single person or body in power, for that is exactly what kills us - and will kill all of us in the end.I would like to occupy more often, but have been discouraged to do so because I represent The Zeitgeist Movement. Everywhere, all over the globe (as far I know) there are Occupations that are open to sharing all sorts of ideas from every individual and group that feels disenfranchised. For some reason Edmonton has an approach to the Occupation that seems completely counter to what the rest of the globe is doing. There should be an open door policy where all people can speak freely of what the problems are and what solutions there are.

26/10/2011 11:38:40It starts with moral change. How people can not equate the desire to oust corrupt dictators (who live as kings) with a call to oust the Western worlds Kleptocracy or corporate rulers. If they are true despots they will walk over the homeless man without a care. That is moral story of rapacious inequality and that is what exist in Empire. I am passionate about learning and discussions, the only true democracy is one composed of discussions, not bulling tactics.

Alternatives have to replace the existing. They have to built from the grassroots. These alternatives have to feed, cloth, and provide an outlet for creative Individual and community fulfillment. Community currencies, small urban economies, people learning once again about the joy of making decisions together.
No one person makes reality, it is human interaction and reaction. Ideas become discussed, tested and people move to action. Reality is situational and socially constructed. Small groups of people acting and shaping their environment apart from State. Community is more than it's relationship to State.I would like to and I will. Modernity, commodification of everything demands that we live in their growth based system to sustain ourselves. We believe that it is necessary like air, water, love and socialization. It is not if we create our own Rich community (rich in the necessities)

Make it social filled with conversation informal learning at it best. Identifying problems and taking action will come when people agree on the way forward. Emotions and motivation towards actions are a result of bonding, forming group vision and having learning conversations with a desire to act.

27/10/2011 16:04:56I think that the only truly viable long term solution that will be acceptable to the larger audience of Canadian (and global) society is a gradual change brought about by limiting corporate access and rights regarding political lobbying, donations and other such interference. Corporate money is exchanged for political power and this is the issue from which many other issues stem. We must seek to redress corporate influence upon those in power.I think the changes are required as means to an end. We cannot wander around screaming red bloody murder every time someone gets rich; that dream of “making it big” is an important motivating factor in our society. Indeed, being rich is not the issue: the abuse of these riches is.

People with money should be reinvesting it in the society that enabled them to attain these riches in the first place. We cannot – and I argue should not – force them to invest their money. What we can do is take away the “easy route” to attaining power and influence with that money. Instead of being able to purchase influence via political donations, cushy job offers or using job creation as a political club, we must remove all options for the rich to exert influence excepting directly convincing the populace at large.

You should not be able to buy a politician or the media. You should have to get up on your soap box and address the people, convince the people, bay your lobbying funds to the people. This is the way forward. Limiting the rights of the rich, robin hood taxes and otherwise directly attempting take what other people earn is simply going to lead to class warfare. A war that the 99% may very well lose.
On the other hand, if we simply legally restrict the options available to corporations – and remember that “the rich” exercise their power and tie almost all of their money up in corporations – we tie the hands of the rich far more effectively, and far more fairly than any other proposed method.

You can still get rich. You can still reap the rewards of your efforts. You can still be faster, smarter, stronger and better than your peers and thus make a better living than them. “The American Dream” remains unbroken. It is simply…limited. Capped. The amount of influence you can attain becomes proportional not to “who to know,” but rather to “how much you give back.” Earn the love of the people to earn their votes.
The first step is to accept that “lifelong public servants” are a class of individuals we absolutely need to cultivate. One of the biggest threats to our democracy is the ability for public servants to leave public service and enter the private sector. This is the most efficient way to legally “buy” someone. Politician or appointed public servant, dangling a cushy directorship in front of them guarantees loyalty.
We need to pay our civil servants well, but place truly massive restrictions on whom they can work for should they leave public service. (For example, the environment minister should not be allowed to take a job with any private entity he/she has interacted with in an official capacity for 10 years after leaving public service.)
We also need to make lobbying illegal. Flat out illegal. Corporate entities, rich individuals, non-profit organisations…all of it. The lobbying machine needs to die, and truly scary punishments need be meted out to those who transgress. Being convicted of lobbying should be an invective, spat out in the same vein as treason.

Instead, we return to “convince the people, not the individuals.” If you want your side of the story to be heard, you should need to convince the people at large. Voting should be what makes the difference, and thus you should be addressing the people not the politician.

This leads us to slightly more direct democracy. Taking a vote on every issue is insane. It simply can’t work. Keeping politicians on their toes – and thus responsive to their constituents – however should be far easier. Let’s make laws that make recalling an MP simple. If a group of individuals is really, truly upset with their MP, they should be able to gather X amount of signatures within their riding and get that MP removed from office, forcing a by-election.

There should be an entire ministry of the government dedicated to helping citizens hold their MPs responsible. Furthermore, public servants should not be safe. Individuals that are appointed by ministers should be fair game for exactly these sorts of campaigns. Make sure that those exercising power on our behalf know that they are responsible for representing the people that elected them (or they lose their job) and suddenly they start caring a lot more about the needs of the people.

Combined, this makes those in power responsive to the needs of the people. If you are in public service, you must keep the people happy or lose your job. If you lose your job, you cannot simply walk into the private sector, because there are restrictions on where you can work. So you do what the people tell you to, or you are utterly, completely screwed.

Sure, the people may not always be right, but it isn’t the job of the politician to know better than us. It is their job to REPRESENT US, and thus do OUR will. Not to protect us from ourselves. The time and money should not be spend making decisions against the public good “because someone knows better,” it should be spend educating the people so that we can understand why such a law/decision needs to be made.
I hold down 4 jobs so that I can pay my mortgage (which is now underwater thanks to the housing crash after 2007,) and ensure that if I get hit by a bus, my family won’t be out on the street. (My wife only makes ~$30000 a year. Not enough to live on, certainly not enough to pay the mortgage. Certainly not enough to absorb the ~$40,000 that the mortgage is underwater by.)

Until I can get myself out of debt, get my house worth the mortgage (by paying that mortgage down,) then I simply cannot afford to participate. My family comes first: I need to ensure that their futures are secure should anything happen to me.
The best I can do is offer material support in the form of supplies.

A thousand dollars or so worth of supplies can make a huge difference to the protest, without being a huge impact to me. I have connections that should be able to get some of this stuff at wholesale prices, especially as many support the movement.

I apologise for not being there in person, but I will be there in spirit, and I will be working behind the scenes to ensure you have the supplies you need.

28/10/2011 15:23:07Complete automation in every industry. so in essence, the economy is automated, so human hands are not needed to run it.So nobody would have to work, and help drive this machine we have tied ourselves too. So e could all do what our heart desires. mushy eh? John Lennon!First, we must find funding for these projects, or possibly get rid of the need for funding.

Then the tricky part, majority of people would be scared of not going to work. since everything's automated, and the economy is now just something we see from the other side of a screen, we could all travel. Anywhere.

Another thing is dividing up the economic output of this system. Everyone gets a fair share, no matter how fat you are.

Everyone must also know how to fix a complex machine, so electronics engineering courses must be mandatory, for lack of a better word in my vocabulary.

31/10/2011 11:25:19I propose that if we do any Roving Occupy Squads, we go with a Robin Hood Motif. Because Robin Hood always put the needs of common people first. And he ran with a bunch of Merry Men. They were surrounded by injustice, and they never lost their sense of humour. And Friar Tuck never criticized the common people's morality. And they understood that not everybody could live in the forest. Robin Hood has gotten lots of good press over the years. And he was part of a movement that led to the Magna Carta and Habeas Corpus. And the green hats look really cool..We let everybody know that we're about justice and equality for everyone.

Of course, education about the workings of a Resource-Based Economy, and exactly why our world is in its current political/social/economic/financial predicaments is the first step.I will endeavor to support the movement, however, I have a serious spinal condition which requires surgery and will likely keep me mostly inactive until February/March 2012. Until then, I have lots of free time to continue my research and development and educate others.

05/11/2011 20:57:26i think the issue is actually a very simple one. Simply put change will be when out elected officials actually listen to the needs of of the many , and not the needs of the elite. Occupy should not be about anything else but getting more power to voters

we need to do some combination of the following.
more direct democracy
shorter terms
recall
eliminate campaign funding to just people ( companies are not people )
reduce the power of parties, or get rid of them
force media to cover all candidates
make the government afraid of us
end lobbying
end majority governments

anything else you can think of that make our representatives actually do things that we like.
I feel this is the issue because all the other issues people complain about are a result of our democracy not working for the us. this is the root of the problem. talk about rich people, poor people, communism, capitalism, big oil, unions, conservatives, liberals, taxes are all distractions from the real problem, and only serve to divide us. OWS needs to simplify its focus a little to get to the next critical mass stage. this is what i think the issue should beevery citizen needs to shut down the country until our law makers create these laws. We need the government to be afraid of us starting now, and foreverfamily and work, on-call, just make it too hard to make any real commitment. I am greatfull to those are do.

06/11/2011 21:53:20the changes I would like to see are, moving away from oil and towards renewable energy, such as , solar farms and wind farms. A goverment incentive program for renewable energy. Stopping the tar sands ! A future for the earth and its inhabitants. I would like to see the earth continue living. There should be criminal charges against all oil companies. Goverment incentive programs for renwable energy. Feed in-tarrifts similar to Ontario. I have been around,

07/11/2011 23:18:34Occupy to actually have a realistic goalBecause they have none or far too many to be realisticOne at a time...but that isn't soon enough, is it?Because I am busy being part of the REAL 99% who has a job to go to, a mortgage to pay and a family to feed.

While you quit your jobs (if you had one) to go and squat on private property and in general either inconvenience or intimidate the average citizen, we the REAL 99% continue to do our jobs, paying our taxes and keeping society working that due to your guys' inherent utopian views ultimately have come to expect....it ain't free afterall.

Perhaps you should call yourselves the 1% of the 99%
I guess that would make you the .99% ;)

08/11/2011 09:29:35Ending entitlement programs that pay lazy pot heads to sit on a couch all day eating cheetos without ever paying a dime into society.It is your laziness and greed that is hurting our economy, no one should expect a high paying job or help from the government it is your fault you are poor. Our country has the opportunity to work your own way to success without expecting help from others.Go get a fucking job you lazy bastards.Because I have a business, a life.

02/02/2012 07:21:421. End fiat currency.
2. Stop ChemTrails
3. End Agenda 21 control of Edmoton
1. Fiat currency is used to enslave the entire globe.

2. Edmonton is being chemtrailed daily. Aluminum, barium and synthetic fibers are poisoning all people.

3. The UN is a criminal Illuminati organization
Mass awareness, political activityI will help.

05/02/2012 23:13:33For Canada to nationalise all of Her resources and distribute them equally among the Nation. For the downtown east side of Vancouver to be a happy and productive neighbourhood and the sad souls living in it to overcome their pasts, their addictions, and become whole again. For the Aboriginals to be treated with respect and their affairs to be handled as any other human affair rather than "Indian affairs". Let's cut this war on drugs, this american-style prison system harper is imposing, and let's really look at Indian and Northern affairs as well as drug treatment facilities and come up with new solutions.I am passionate about this because as a citizen of an Independent, Strong, Unified, Socially Democratic, Grassroots, Gentle, Disciplined, and Proud society called Canada, I feel we have created these problems going away from what we once were as a Nation and becoming globalised and americanised.I really believe what the Occupy Group is doing is wonderful in achieving all this. The Occupy Group has been helping the homeless in major cities across Canada serving them food and beverages as well as providing minor healthcare even as simple as a tent that might have saved someone from hypo or hyperthermia! As well as education through the free distribution of compilation DVDs (I got one THANK YOU! titled "the Truth" - LOVED IT!) and really its NOT a matter of "what we should do", but to just keep doing the right things and improving on them. Education, discussion, demonstration, interviews, and helping are all very good ways to go and the Movement has done a great job at all these. I am very satisfied.It's not so much that I can't, but I just always "can't". I am a student who is usually busy and I have other work and projects on my plate too. As far as weekends go and such, it's unlikely I can't squeeze in some time unless I'm out of transportation.

19/02/2012 17:10:53Stop the unrestricted abuse of greed and power in the area's where it is practiced most. In the stock markets, hedge funds and large corporations. Hit the greed at the heart - if it had one.

A perfect scenario of where this greed is being practiced is with a small upstart mining company - Baja Mining - a company whose founders have spent numerous years untangling bureaucratic, technical, financial and political issues to employ several hundred Mexicans in developing a copper mine which is expected to produce in 2012.

Along comes Mount Kellet, in their own words an 'opportunistic' investment firm, lead by Mark McGoldrick of ex Goldman Sachs fame, who has now targeted Baja by defaming their company - all the while not being able to conform to the ideologies he states they are in conflict with. If Mount Kellet is successful, it takes over from the founders of Baja Mining, makes hundreds of millions and contributes nothing.
Start exposing the players, their greedy tactics, their lack of ethics and their total lack of empathy for others in their never ending goal of 'win, win, win'.

I have served in management for multi-billion dollar corporations and have seen first hand the total lack of empathy that is exhibited. The only thing they care about is the bottom line - but most importantly for the Occupy movement - what affects the bottom line. Otherwise it is very difficult, if not impossible, to impact the thoughts of such people. Demonstrating in the streets is a laughable effort to these people as long as that's the end effect for them.

btw - I left management in 2006 because I was embarrassed at the association of being one of them and the games that are played.
Writing to business editors, columnists, investors,politicians and others in influence who should be stewarding ethical behaviour and telling them to start exposing it. Start investigating and exposing situations that are only about money and not progress of any sort.

Make the general investment community embarrassed to just care about making 'money', and start caring about people, the planet and things that matter. People such as Mark McGoldrick exist for one reason only. To 'win' and not care what happens to others.
Care for two handicapped children and have some physical disabilities that restrict me. I am available for administrative type duties though whether they be writing letters or attending occasional meetings, etc

16/12/2012 15:24:03Large tax on the rich, a tax break for all working calls families from 1000 -100,000 in income, tighting of the welfare state or people who abuse social services, keep the current health care system, college tuition reduction, a cap on political donations, keep corporations out of public institutions, break up monopolies and obligarchies. We have the Liberals, NDP, and Conservatives, but they essentially are the same. And there are 20 parties, but I doubt the "Weed" party or the Rhino party would be effective for change.Start political movements that challange the current political system. I have to work and improve myself like everyone else.
