Reconnecting Occupy with the 99% community
Unity of purpose is our main Solution
  • One of the great things OWS people do is, they give HOPE to the people fighting in other countries. Some people do not understand what it is to be far away from here in a fight where there is no law, there is no police, no army, you can be shot at any moment and, on top of it, people in the US do not care at all about you. When you are not alone, even if you are in jail, you have a very different way to die. Mumia Abu Jamal understands that very well, that's why he keeps communicating with others who need him.

  • I have always been avidly humanitarian, my parents are activists as well. I came the moment I heard of Occupy with everything I had. The group I founded I think we did great things with and they continue, it's all just part of Occupy Wall Street. It's all groups of groups of groups, right. we did it together. a real cooperative triumph. Occupy the Multiverse

  • The issues that are most important to me to change in our society is the environment, the economy and our incentives. It has become apparent to me that 95% of our social ills all stem from the same root. That root is poverty and our parasitic capitalistic system whose only agenda is to feed off and consume everything around it including itself.

  • Convince more people to take to the streets in protest. I'm currently in the process of doing that in the Greater Toledo Area, but bringing together many different political groups & people of different political ideologies is not an easy task nor one that can be accomplished in a short period of time. If you have any tips please let me know.

  • Significant dates, places, names and an indescribable Feeling overtook me in 2011. My Occupy experience is there -- grounded in the past. That old odyssey created a new person today. Unafraid to speak out, relentlessly pursuing the wildest of dreams -- free in the present. Another significant day is approaching; new excitement and another opportunity -- to Occupy the future.

  • The Occupy movement needs to support teachers parents and students revolting against testing, privatization and school closings! We needed you during the Chicago Teachers Strike, and the battle against school closings in Philly and Chicago. And we could use help undermining the data gathering capacity of the School Reform wing of the 1 percent and supporting the Opt Out movement.
