Occupy Your Community

October 10th, 2011

Here at Outpost One, we are following Occupy Wall Street events all over the country. “We are the 99%!” is a message that speaks to all of us. As the CLEU, we are thrilled to see how the Occupy events have created a model of non-hierarchical, decentralized, horizontal organization with open assembly, transparency, and consensus. The occupiers show us what democracy looks like and demonstrate that a better world is possible. People gather to stand against corporate greed and political corruption, and to give voice to their frustration and anger against a system that supports profits over people. Young and old, we will no longer be silent. We are growing hope, and we are not going away. Now is the time to stand up for our planet and its people. As Naomi Klein says, Occupy Wall Street is “the most important thing in the world right now.”
