Reconnecting Occupy with the 99% community
Unity of purpose is our main Solution
  • 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.

  • The most pressing issue to me right now is the economy, and continued lack of opportunities that are endemic to the system we will live in. Changing that is of the utmost essence as it affects me and everyone else's life right now both domestically and internationally and It is tied to every injustice on the planet.

  • We need to build the world we want. We need community, creativity, permaculture principles and joy. More joy and a little more. Small groups focused on being love. No more reacting. All proacting. Believe in each other and make a way for a new future. We have everything we need to build around the destroyers, we are just to stuck on them and not what needs to be.
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
