For more than two months now in the United States and even longer globally with protests in Egypt and Spain, for instance, a lot of attention has obviously been given to the movement to raise awareness of economic injustice.
That being said, I still find a lot of people in the United States of America, the 99%, quite apathetic or at the very least unaware of the movement's developments or even how it has already changed a lot of public dialogue concerning the dismal state of economic affairs. It has educated many on subjects such as corporate personhood and the Glass-Steagall Act, and even brought more attention to alternative energy sources such as solar power in addition to economic statistics such as those highlighting the continued growing income disparity, for instance.
For many of the first responders, a term used by an insightful Occupier in conversation the other night, this new way of thinking and keeping abreast of developments at the very least are daily parts of the lives of those engaged in this movement whether we occupy land, march in streets, write blogs, post video, teach workshops, perform, actively reach out to others in public, or a combination of some kind.
In the spirit of expanding the awareness of what the movement is about, what it is accomplishing, what it's message is as it evolves, creativity with events, and more, I have opened a Facebook page entitled OCCUPY OUTREACH.
Here is what it is about:
The primary purpose of this page is to occupy an online space for sharing creative ideas and promoting created events that reach out to the global public in a variety of peaceful ways. Express yourself ethically,intelligently and simply from the heart!
If you have an interest in creatively raising awareness and promoting the creative, ethical, peaceful, and intelligent elements of the Movement, I invite you to check it out. We've only just begun!
IN PEACE... NOW,
