(Re-investigate 9/11 generated the most votes by an extremely large percentage. Overall some 70,000 + people voted on this measure to be adopted in the OWS official demands poll and “Yes” beat out the “No” votes by a margin of something like 6 to 1 (60 thousand to 12 thousand). Another interesting aspect to all of this is the little known fact that the Federal Reserve central banking system, privately owned and the model of what we are forcing on other nations across the world, can be bought back from the banks that own it at a cost of only 1 billion dollars. Buying it back and ending the FED in that way is one of their demands that they have adopted by a vote of 83% in favor.)

At the official Occupy Wall Street media site coupmedia.org. Voting software prevents voting from the same ISP more than once. The following is an initial demands list on which voting closed on Oct. 21, 2011. Items required a vote of 2/3 “yes” or more to remain on the list. Voting is still open on other demands.
The Sovereign People’s Movement, represented nationally through the people occupying the various Liberty Square locations across this great country, have laid out and democratically submitted and are currently voting on the list of following Demands to then be distilled into one Unified Common demand of the people.
OCCUPY WALL STREET OFFICIAL DEMANDS PASSED, AS OF OCT. 21, 2011
1. Repeal of the Patriot Act
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” — Fourth Amendment to the Constitution
Forty-five days after 9/11, Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act without reading it. This new law was supposed to protect you from terrorism, but it has really left you unprotected against lawless federal agents. The Patriot Act contains numerous violations of the Fourth Amendment. It gives federal agents vast new powers that have been abused to investigate innocent Americans.
2. ELIMINATE “PERSONHOOD” LEGAL STATUS FOR CORPORATIONS
3. Forced Acquisition of the Federal Reserve for $1Billion
No Congress, no President has been strong enough to stand up to the foreign-controlled Federal Reserve Bank. Yet there is a catch – one that President Kennedy recognized before he was slain – the original deal in 1913 creating the Federal Reserve Bank had a simple backout clause. The investors loaned the United States Government $1 billion. And the backout clause allows the United States to buy out the system for that $1 billion. If the Federal Reserve Bank were demolished and the Congress of the United States took control of the currency, as required in the Constitution, the National Debt would virtually end overnight, and the need for more taxes and even the income tax, itself. Thomas Jefferson was concise in his early warning to the American nation, “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.”
Article I, Section 8, Clause 5, of the United States Constitution provides that Congress shall have the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof and of any foreign coins. But that is not the case. The United States government has no power to issue money, control the flow of money, or to even distribute it – that belongs to a private corporation registered in the State of Delaware – the Federal Reserve Bank.
4. Re Investigate the Attacks of 9-11-2001
More and more evidence is being released to the public surrounding the suspicious circumstances surrounding 911. This measure would be included in the list of demands to show that the original investigation was significantly flawed.
