Bain Capital http://www.baincapital.com/ was co-founded by Mitt Romney. It has taken part in many "hostile takeovers" which included laying off workers and selling companies for spare parts.

Occupy Tampa and the Tampa Bay Regional General Assembly passed through consensus to make Shut Down Bain Capital a national call to action on the day that Mitt Romney accepts the RNC's nomination.

Occupy Rogers Park Housing

WHY: 

Occupy Rogers Park has begun a housing campaign including reclaiming abandoned homes for homeless families.  We need a transparent fundraising process.

WHAT: 

Occupy Chicago will endorse Occupy Rogers Park Housing Campaign, including the home reclamations projects.

In addition, Occupy Chicago will request that Crossroads create a separate program, akin to the legal fund, managed by Occupy Rogers Park and dedicated to the housing reclamation project.  Crossroads has indicated that they can do this fairly easily and there will be no additional costs incurred.  This allows people to give through a known organization.

HOW: 

See above.
