June 17th was the the 9 month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Most of the world outside of occupy is not aware of this, as the Main Stream Media (MSM) keeps pounding it into their heads that "Occupy is dead". But this is not the way it looks to many on the ground, as we see what happens day to day, we follow the writings, the live streams, the blogs, and tweets of other occupiers all over the world. Unfortunately most of the world outside Occupy does not follow, or might not even know these things exist. They don't see us on what MSM calls "News" so out of sight, out of mind. There isn't a great amount of media coming out of the occupations, generally because we are really busy with what we are doing, and we always could use more help.
This is where we get into my two favorite words in the Occupation, both thrown around a lot but not understood by everyone. So lets go over them shall we?
noun, plural au·ton·o·mies.
How do we move forward from the current state we are in? How can we facilitate autonomy? Is it even possible? To me it doesn't seem like we can just sit around and wait for it to happen. But as autonomy builds, how do we work towards accountability as a major objective, so more gets accomplished overall? How do we with a loose structure assist those around us in taking action, that gets followed through on? How do we destroy the notion you have to wait to be told to do something by "someone in charge?"
