Consistent with their ideals of mutual aid rather than charity, Occupy Wall Street has just launched a Rolling Jubilee.
What's a Rolling Jubilee? It is the next phase in a growing collective resistance movement against the debt system. (If you want to know what the "debt system" is, then you really need to read this amazing book by David Graeber , which will change the way that you view the world.)

A bailout of the people by the peopleRolling Jubilee is a Strike Debt project that buys debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, abolishes it. Together we can liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal. Debt resistance is just the beginning. Join us as we imagine and create a new world based on the common good, not Wall Street profits.
The only difference is that instead of sending in the heavies to collect on the debt like good capitalists are supposed to do, they simply erase it.
