Occupy Together: how the global movement is spreading via social media At the beginning of October last year Malcolm Gladwell wrote in the New Yorker that activism via social media was no more than "weak-tie connections" which "makes it easier for activists to express themselves, and harder for that expression to have any impact". One year on, with #arabspring uprisings changing governments in north Africa and #OccupyWallStreet drawing the attention of senior Republicans and Democrats, the #globaldemocracy movement is gaining momentum via Twitter and Facebook. Now protests are planned for Saturday in four continents, I wonder if Gladwell will rethink the power of social networked activism. Occupy Wall Street spread virally across the United States, and more recently a number of UK events have sprung up on Facebook, leading to the first protest events in England and the rest of Europe this weekend.

Declaration of the Occupation of New York City This document was accepted by the NYC General Assembly on September 29, 2011 Translations: French , Slovak , Spanish , German , Italian , Arabic , Portuguese [ all translations »] As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies. As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power.
How Occupy Wall Street Occupied Twitter, Too Television cameras and and newspapers have chronicled the so-called Occupy Wall Street protest movement as it has grown into a global phenomenon. But what has it looked like online? Thanks to a start-up called SocialFlow, and tons of Twitter data, we can actually see how the idea propagated through influential people and organizations, and across previously invisible conduits to permeate vast expanses of Twitter’s network. The first ever use of the #OccupyWallStreet hashtag was in an Adbusters blog post, way back on July 13, according to Gilad Lotan, SocialFlow’s head of research and development. The network of tweeters using the hashtag was small and sparse in the beginning, with no major media entities yet participating in the conversation.
A May Day alert for the Occupy movement So, Occupy got it together for May Day – at least, in New York City. You would never know it, though, from mainstream news: those reports were full of what I call the "erectile dysfunction" narrative, the default narrative in American new coverage of mass protest. "Why Occupy May Day Fizzled", as CNN had it: flaccid efforts, always in "drenching rain", that may be well-intentioned but have no staying power. But if you click onto the new site Occupy.com – or if you actually went to the rally held in the late afternoon in Union Square – it was a very different story: thousands of euphoric protesters, a massive sound stage, edgy hip-hop artists who had created Occupy anthems that were euphorically received by the crowd, and representation by dozens of community groups and unions in Manhattan. In other words – if built on further – a power base.
The Global Square: an online platform for our movement A proposal on how to perpetuate the creative and cooperative spirit of the occupations and transform them into lasting forms of social organization. This is a proposal made by a group of concerned global citizens who also act as volunteers for Take the Square, United for Global Change, 15october.net, European Revolution and Reflections on a Revolution (ROAR). We do not pretend to represent or speak on behalf of anyone but ourselves. The Global Square: Towards an Online Platform for the Occupy Movement
