Further #Occupy Tactics
If you agree with the basic principles of #OWS here are two other ways in which you can participate in dismantling the corporate structure of our society:
- Move your money in to a Credit Union
Banks and the fraudulent CEOS who own the banks rely on your business to stay in power. If you withdraw your financial support from these institutions and invest in credit unions you can re-establish your power on a global scale.
A credit union is a collection of individuals who pool their paychecks together. As individuals banding together within their community they are then able to choose who gets a loan. That means that they are able to support businesses who contribute to their local community. Likewise, I imagine very few credit unions are foreclosing on people’s homes.
- Use the pre-paid envelopes that credit card companies send potential applicants to mail them the most expensive package imaginable.
Credit, and the high interest payments which go along with it, enslave working class peoples. With the United States Postal Service facing severe cuts we must do everything we can to support our essential government services.
Personally, I prefer to send them dead batteries, as these are the heaviest, most useless things I can find (while I am unsure about the eventual destination of this garbage, I admit there could be something even better to send…). Please remember that the people opening these packages are workers like us, so send them a nice message while taking a dent out of unfair businesses’ wallet.
How else can we get involved?
