Occupy movement The Occupy movement is an international protest movement against social and economic inequality, its primary goal being to make the economic and political relations in all societies less vertically hierarchical and more flatly distributed. Local groups often have different foci, but among the movement's prime concerns deal with how large corporations and the global financial system control the world in a way that disproportionately benefits a minority, undermines democracy, and is unstable.[8][9][10][11] The first Occupy protest to receive widespread attention was Occupy Wall Street in New York City's Zuccotti Park, which began on 17 September 2011. Background[edit] Protests in 1–4 cities Protests in 5–9 cities Protests in 10 or more cities "We are the 99%" slogan[edit] Goals[edit] During the early weeks, the movement was frequently criticized by the news media for having no clearly defined goals. Methods[edit] Assembly hand signals Structure[edit] Nonviolence[edit]

Occupy Wall Street: The Most Important Thing in the World Now Published in The Nation. I was honored to be invited to speak at Occupy Wall Street on Thursday night. Since amplification is (disgracefully) banned, and everything I said had to be repeated by hundreds of people so others could hear (a.k.a. “the human microphone”), what I actually said at Liberty Plaza had to be very short. With that in mind, here is the longer, uncut version of the speech. I love you. And I didn’t just say that so that hundreds of you would shout “I love you” back, though that is obviously a bonus feature of the human microphone. Yesterday, one of the speakers at the labor rally said: “We found each other.” If there is one thing I know, it is that the 1 percent loves a crisis. And there is only one thing that can block this tactic, and fortunately, it’s a very big thing: the 99 percent. That slogan began in Italy in 2008. “Why are they protesting?” But there are important differences too. Occupy Wall Street, on the other hand, has chosen a fixed target. - What we wear.

15th october: #United we will re-invent the world Global Occupy : Pictures, Videos, Breaking News What do we want again? Occupy Wall St takes hold of Australia "Tens of thousands" expected soon "It's not radicals - just ordinary people" Australians prepare own occupations IT'S the protest movement that may not exactly know what it's protesting about - and may not have much chance of achieving it. Demontrators enraged by "corporate greed" plan to spread their message in capital cities across Australia tomorrow as part of the Occupy Wall Street movement. As tracked down Australians at the original Wall Street protest in New York, organisers of the local offshoots said they planned to set up a permanent campsite outside the Reserve Bank in Sydney to highlight "massive inequalities in Australia". "People are coming will all sorts of reasons to get out on the streets," one said. However, economist Professor Ian Harper, of Deloitte Access Economics, was unsure what the Australian protest was trying to achieve. "If they don't have a clear set of demands, I'm not quite sure what this is going to achieve," he said.
