    PROPOSED LIST OF DEMANDS (please help edit/add so this can be submitted for consideration to those maintaining the official list) | OccupyWallSt.org Forum

    From the OWS site. Their members logging in and listing their demands. Can't decide if it is more humorour or pathetic. But it's a wild read. If you read some of them.....it almost makes your brain cramp. It's a grassroots, peoples movement right? So the people themselves are the only ones who can officially speak for the movement. Thus....here are the official demands.

    A lot of "This should happen.......but I have no clue how it would or be paid for, but it should happen."

    A couple "adopt the Russian model" advocates.

    Some say a wage limit for CEOs capped at 100X the lowest paid employee.

    Some say a regulation on the "income gap", where the gap can't grow....somehow.



    Scroll down, read...and laugh or cry, whichever comes first.

    A post on an internet forum is not the "official" list of anything.
