Tuesday's Your Call: How is the Occupy movement encouraging creative economic activism?

How is the Occupy movement encouraging creative activism around economic inequality?  Activists are staging occupations at foreclosed homes across the country to raise awareness about the crisis and help families keep their homes.  There is also talk of creating state or municipal banks as one solution to the corruption of the banking system.  What other ways are you seeing the occupy movement galvanize people to support innovative strategies for turning our economy around?  Join the conversation with host Rose Aguilar by calling (415) 841-4134, or email feedback@yourcallradio.org.
