Occupychi.org is still picking up steam dispite its lack of organization. "We are the 99%" has become the protestors battle cry. They are individuals and organizations collectively protesting causes that all lead back to one focused complaint, the 1% have more power than the the 99%. Our political reps are elected by the most money spent. Our pentagon has been hijacked by defense contractors. Our healthcare system benefits the middle man insurance companies instead of the doctors ans patients. Our department of agriculture has been run into the ground by monsanto, the citizens united ruling claims corporations are people and money is speech, the list is as diverse as the people here in chicago outside the federal reserve. This movement will not be privatized, or reduced to a single organization.
