Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What is “Occupy” and who does it represent?
“Occupy” is a civil disobedience tactic that draws attention to socio-economic problems and opens public space for community discourse for solutions by asserting our 1st Amendment Rights. It represents the so-called 99%, a nexus of ideas dedicated to solving our common problems and occupation is our means to disseminate those ideas.
2. What are your goals?
Reform to prevent revolt. There are many “goals”, far too many to enumerate here, but a good place to start would be eliminating the capital domination of politics and corporate control of, well, everything.
3. Who are your leaders?
Our “leader” is the idea that direct actions consented upon through direct democracy will transform communities into whatever vision they they decide for themselves. Our “leaders” are heros from the past, the people of the present and the children of the future.
4. How can I help?
Do what you do, the best you can do it, in the service of something greater than your self-interest. Honor the humanity, not just the deeds, of others.
