    What does ‘vague’ mean in this context? Is she merely saying she’s specific about what she wants?

    Great sign, at any rate.

      I think “vague” refers to the complaints many outside the movement have re: Occupy’s “one demand”. They don’t (want to?) understand that it is about opposing corporate greed, and the reduction of everything, including people and our ecosystem, into a commodity.
      For a humourous take on this, check out The Onion: “Nation Waiting For Protestors To Clearly Articulate Demands Before Ignoring Them” http://www.theonion.com/articles/nation-waiting-for-protesters-to-clearly-articulat,26353/

        I saw that article! Great commentary. Seems pretty clear whose side The Onion is on.
