    Occupy Cincinnati is looking to plan an action regarding the Super Committee and Senator Rob Portman OH who is on the committee. I was wondering if any other occupies have anything planned. We think this is a very important and relevant issue and time sensitive as well. Our Direct Action Committee would like to have something to present to our GA on Monday, please let me know if you have heard anything about this.
    Thanks.

    Wow I agree with you this is indeed an urgent call to action.

    By tomorrow we'll have a plan worked out, we will send it to all occupations located in the districts/states of the representatives and senators on the super committee. We've found 4 online petitions so far, one of which is from AARP, which demonstrates how broad based this issue is.
