  1. Dear Occupy,

    Governments are drowning in debt, because the rich don’t pay tax.

    We need a global campaign to Repudiate Tax Havens – ie repudiate all debts owed to Tax Havens, and all assets owned by them.

    “debts owed to Tax Havens” means debts owed to banks & other lenders based in Tax Havens

    “assets owned by Tax Havens” means assets owned abroard by companies/investors nominally based in Tax Havens

    Please respond; let me know what you think, and whether you’ll act on this. The campaign must be world-wide.

    Sincerely,

    Peter

  2. Is it possible for you to tell us who is donating money, particularly if it is over 100 dollars? Or if it comes from a corporation?

    • in our principles of solidarity, we specifically state that donations to the OWS NYCGA will remain anonymous, except those donations over $5,000 which we are required by IRS statute to disclose at the filing date.

      Thanks for the question!

  3. would the Law’s which have been changed to protect the 1% over huge fraud charger’s ?? Bring Down these’s models???? Or would the Opening of the SECRET’S ACT OF WW-2 Do this much Quicker…As it must have been done after 9/11!!! wiki-leaks / open-leaks open a door to swiss bank’s =world food corp, phamaceutical corp,Minening rare Mineral’s corporation’s & fat cats IS THIS HOW FAR WE ARE GOING & visitting the past of ? Mason’s or the Brethen!!!

  4. I Heard that lead members of occupied office, and finance /accounting are in process of changing their status from working group to affinity group- the only thing that concerns me about this new information is this: If key players who are in the position to accept major donations on behalf of OWS are registered as an affinity group and not a working group, does this mean that all donations received by them are no longer “common property” of Ows? Does this mean they will not have to deposit these donations into the general fund? Does this mean, that as an affinity group they can spend donations they receive for OWS however they deem fit, without GA consensus???? Please clarify, so that I can decide if I want to continue to contribute to this movement. Thank you

  7. p.s. I didnt get the point of the meeting, apparently there to say kitchen expenses were $8,000 and Metro Cards were $4,000 which we already heard at g.a. and spokes, but nobody could see the receipts, the signers on the accounts, etc.
