Cofounder Medea Benjamin and Indypendent writer Arun Gupta posted an incredible column on Common Dreams today, inspired by the historic election yesterday, that calls for a grassroots mass-mobilization of communities nationwide to create a plan to solve the economic crisis and reinvest in America. They write:
Because the "free market" has proven a farce and the right is in disarray, there is a huge opening to pass policies that can benefit all Americans. As the economy sinks, only concerted public action can revive it.
They offer some solid suggestions of how any average Joe or Jill can get behind this. Check it out here. Is this possible? Will people do this? It seems entirely doable. What would you do?
