These are areas I'm well practiced in. Maybe instead of advocating and organizing a graffiti effort, those of us who want to do it just start doing it and as people start noticing more will get involved. 
Having stickers printed is a good idea in any case - for skateboards and backpacks and things like that. 
Nighttime's always best. 

I LOVE the idea of lots of arrows leading to the occupation - tough to pull off though

been reading more on the legality of chalk. (ha!)... it became an
issue in 2007 as police were stepping up their anti-vandal activities
or whatever and told the parents of a 6 year old girl in park slope
they faced a 300 dollar fine if they didn't clean up their daughter's
chalk drawings on their stoop. It may remain somewhat of a grey area
but I have a friend who sticker bombs, was recently arrested (this was
just 2 months ago) and while in the holding cell, met a fellow street
artist who was in their for drawing faces on the street in chalk. And
we know a girl was arrested for chalking in zucotti the other day
(without being read her rights, I'm told) So just be careful please.

Love
