Stephen Lerner's back

Ex-SEIU guy Stephen Lerner is still trying to crash what he calls the big banksBut it looks like his strategy has changed a good bit.

Writing at Alternet.org, Lerner now seeks enlistment of left-leaning local governments to engage in strategies like condemning mortgages with eminent domain powers, along with campaigns to renegotiate public debt to lower levels. He also wants governments to shuffle public funds around as part of future bank boycotts.

I take this as a sign Lerner sees Occupy and street tactics as having resulted in a dead end.
