Use Your Junk Mail To Occupy Wall Street [Video]

Are you part of the 99%? Are you tired of having the needs of the people ignored by politicians and the ultra-wealthy 1% that owns them?

Not everyone can spend days camping at their local Occupy Wall Street protest, but there are other ways to show your support. The video below demonstrates a fast, easy, free, and non-violent way to drive the big banks out of their greedy little minds.

And it’s sitting in your mailbox right now.

Past Member is actually asking if doing so is legal, to send junk mail back to the banks. Rofl, they mailed out the envelope to you, it is your envelope once it is in your possession. There is no law that we have to mail their application forms back to them. What are they going to do, send the postage/junk mail envelope police after people?

SWAT team surrounding home: "Surrender! We have you surrounded! You are guilty of a heinous offence...sending banks their junk mail envelopes with nothing in it! SWAT team, march and employ the Scrooge Manoeuvre to apprehend the suspect! Book 'em, Dano!"

Unless one is enclosing something dangerous in the envelope, empty air is not illegal. Is it legal? Why not, an empty promise sent to the very banks filled with their own empty policies. What could be more fun, you 'subversive', you! Have even more fun, collect all the envelopes that are put into the neighbour's recycling boxes and send those in as well. Apartment dwellers could certainly find a lot of them as well, if one lives in an apartment or has a friend who will lend a hand. Create more employment for the Post Office, which has seen less mail.

It sounds like total fun. There's a kid inside that is wanting to jump on this. Every now and then it won't hurt to be a little mischievous. I want to do what Paul L. did. Guess I'll go get a four way shredder. : )

I love this idea! :) I'll make sure nothing has my name or address on it, though. :)

I have been asking to see if it would be legal to send junk mail back to companies in general. Before I do this, are you sure it is legal?

Hmmm... I'll keep this in mind. He raises valid points even though I think the woodshim is taking it a bit far. I'll do this if the opportunity arises.
