Occupy Chicago is a nonviolent nonpartisan people’s movement. We welcome all, who, in good faith, act to reclaim our economy and democracy from corruption and corporate influence in government. We provide a forum for peaceful assembly of individuals to engage in participatory democracy and non-partisan debate that welcomes dissent.

As for coming out against Sugar and her group? That's hysterical. Might I remind you that OC co-opted the name from OWS? If OWS decided to release a statement which effectively denounces OC, would you be okay with that? You don't own the "Occupy" name. Anyone can co-opt it. And for a movement that prides itself on free speech for all and empowering people, you seem to be doing a lot to try and silence Sugar.
And for anyone who will come at me with the "election process is a sham" angle, when was the last time you voted in anything other than a Presidential election? Be honest.

There is nothing in "Who We Are" that discourages participation in elections. Am I missing something?
