It is from one individual, but if the majority believe in this then.....your just handing power from corrupt bankers to corrupt politicians.....




Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending “Freetrade” by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Demand four: Free college education.

Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America’s nuclear power plants.

Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the “Books.” World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the “Books.” And I don’t mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

They forgot to add...

a fluffy kitten for every small child

The blind to see and the lame to walk

Terrorism to be fazed out by 2012

misery to be fazed out and replaced by happy things

Free magic beans to every household.

It is stupid, ineffective, and will NEVER happen..

How about a revolutionary idea, like what was done in the 60's and 70's?
The protest STOPPED the vietnam wars!!!

One demand!!!

One protest!!!

Everyone in solidarity!!

Everyone unite!!

STOP THE WARS!!!

Quit blaming wall-street for your problems,
and bring our friends, sons, daughters, mom, and dads home!!!
end the wars!!!

If OWS was turned from a *lets hate the rich*

To lets STOP THE WARS, then something will happen..

Until then, pipe dream..

Have not ended the feds EVER,
but the VIETNAM WAR WAS ENDED
BECAUSE OF PROTESTING!!!

Thanks for posting their list of demands, but I'm disappointed that there aren't many directed towards the banking cartels.

First, I'd demand that the banks and real estate companies shut down MERS. If they don't get rid of this modern day HAL, the court systems will be forced to change so that banks' attorneys don't have to present the wet ink note in court.
Second, I'd demand that all soldiers returning home are given the psychological help they were promised as well as the assistance needed for them to reintegrate into society. Prisoners get this, but our soldiers are left to figure it out on their own.
Third, I'd demand that all mortgages are modified across the board. Whether the person is behind or not, just modify everything since 90% of the mortgages out there are underwater and above the estimated value of the structure.

We need to stop the wars and have economic equality. Everyone needs the basic food, home and clothes these should be guarnteed. High pay, less hours and prices in line with cost of living. Basic common sense HUMANISTIC demands. We need to base our demands off human needs not human greed! Yes debt should be cancelled that is more than a year old. If they are current they should be paid. Also if someone is a victim of fraud their credit should be wiped clean. It is not fair someone's credit to be ruined for something her or she did not do. Finally we need a free equal universal health care for all.

Thats what it's all about folks. Thats why there is no 'one demand' one demand WILL NOT WORK for this movement. Because its about everything
Economic Equality
End the wars
End the fed
Get money out of politics

Anything you can possible think of thats #ed up, then its a part of this movement. I've seen tonnes of anti-war posters at occupies. and a lot of people want the war to end as well. So its there. And when it grows, it will be more prominent.

The war on terrorism will never end, they wont let it. Because its a #ing gravy train for big business.

THIS IS NOT THE ACTUAL LIST OF DEMANDS!

Read the posts, and you'll find that out, instead of thinking those are the actual demands. Lol.

While I'm sure the individual who made that list is good intentioned, he/she did no favors to the movement by putting it out there.
He left out the key demand: Every child is to be provided a pet unicorn that flies.

That is a list from an INDIVIDUAL
You said it yourself. Then you make your title say that it's the list of demands of OWS.
That's extremely misleading, and not at all an honest portrayal of reality imo.





Moderators should move this to the HOAX forum, as it constitutes known misinformation.

Yes, it is from an individual, but the webmaster of the OWS obviously uploaded the demands ONTO their website, so there must be some cred to the demands.

Hoax you say? Take a look at the link, it is from the OWS site. Obviously some people don't like the see the ugly side of the movement in the light of day (which is why certain people would like this thread deleted)


I may like certain elements of the movement, but not all of them. This list would account for some of them.

Talk about unorganized.


"I want a couple pizzas and some Dr Pepper for my boyz over here, we are getting kind of thirsty.
A helicopter so we can escape with corporate hostages.
Make that two pizzas.

I am confused all the videos and pictures I see I see statements. those statements could be considered demands.

The OWS has socialist backing and the backing of anti corporatists and anti capitalists.

Their varied lists of demandsd shows the leftist bias in the movement.

ERA has Zero to do with the bankers and Wall Street and it failed to pass in the 80's. This is just a regurgitation of it.

Universal single payer health care....oh Obama care wasn't enough.


Open Borders... that is so Globalist...who are they freaking kidding?

www.infowars.com...


It should be obvious by now the globalists are behind this movement. One world government necessitates the elimination of borders and an end to national sovereignty. Desperate poor people rushing across open borders drives down the wages and living standards of American workers and this is precisely what the globalists want to do. So nice of the OWS crowd to accommodate them

Alex Jones and those clowns on his site are all idiots and conservatives dressed as conspiracy theorists.

Alex Jones might as well join the GOP. He is their stooge.

You have never been able to convince me of any of your positions. Just because you say Alex jones is a clown doesn't make it so.

I fiound this analysis to make complete sense. He splits the hairs right down the middle.


Sooo youre for socialist health care. Just say it and stop being obtuse

Here is a link embedded in the Alex Jones article which explains why the "socialist" plans wont do anything for the masses

That is why OWS is such a joke. They can't settle on one demand and one message. Do you want a unicorn? Demand a unicorn. Do you want a flying horse? Demand a pegasus. But you get the unicorn and flying horse people together, you get political impossibilities like a flying unicorn.

And I don't think any of the "maidens" at OWS could catch a unicorn.

True. If there were hotties out there, I might take a gander. I'd still think it was a bit ridiculous, but they could count my presence there as another "supporter."
Win - Win.

Did you see the topless OWS girl video thread?(probably since taken down). Ewwww.
