Spread this news like wildfire.
See http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2011/11/22/18700779.php for more info on strike to be held in solidarity with Longshoremen:
"On December 12, the occupy movements in different cities will stage mass mobilizations to march on the ports, create community pickets, and effectively shutdown the hubs of commerce, in the same fashion that Occupy Oakland shut down the Port of Oakland on November 2nd, the day of our general strike."
Some of Our talking points:
1. Break the Banks: If they're too big to fail then they're too big to exist. Our words of power: anti-trust laws...re-enact the Glass-Steagall act...No Monopolies In Our Country...Separate the Commercial (99%) from the Investment (1%) Banks, We must not allow ourselves to be at the mercy of their derivatives traders!!
2. Derivatives trading is the 1%'s way of combining work with fun/gambling/betting. Say No More to our economic woes: eliminate transactions from mega bank commercial banking.
3. Charge for each Wall Street transaction. It's So Obvious.
