On Sunday it received Direct Action committee support and endorsement.
This schedule of events was developed by an open working group on Friday with members of Occupy Chicago, CACHE, and the URPE plus other individuals challenging the neverending story from the limited orthodox mainstream debate on economic policy maintained by a financially corrupt and intellectually bankrupt American Economics Association.
The financial sector has academia (particularly the Ivy Leagues) totally occupied, just like the government.
We are protesting the AEA as they lead the national annual ASSA conference in Chicago on Friday the 6th and Saturday the 7th.
The proposal is for Occupy Chicago to adopt these actions which were planned openly in a working group in accordance with our principles.
