#Occupy: You May Be the 99% But Are You Participant or Spectator? 3 Links

October 20, 2011

I don’t know about you, but the #occupy movement has occupied quite a bit of my mind lately as well as my imagination.

There’s a constant stream on twitter and facebook of stories, graphs, charts, and information that articulates WHY so many people are so UPSET.

I’ve been busy fueling the stream myself by sharing what I find on twitter and facebook and targeting people who I think would be interested in reading what I find.

So far, I haven’t posted anything about it here–except for the steady stream that shows up on my twitter feed!

Here the 3 most important links illustrated with images from my good friend Steve McCarthy over at New Republic Printing.

He’ll send you a sticker for $2 if you ask him; he’ll also make you a shirt for a little more money. He’s also got a Gothtober special going–mention “trick or treat” in your order and get $10% off.

First,  a lengthy in-depth analysis well worth reading: “Occupy Wall Street is a Movement Too Big to Fail” from  AlterNet .

Second, the charts and graphs that show what the issues are:CHARTS: Here’s What The Wall Street Protesters Are So Angry About… from

And to close with a bit of humor: Jon Stewart has had a great time lampooning the Republicans over this. This recent clip “Scorn in the US” is hilarious and brilliant way of showing how the Repubs called us to action, to take the streets, to go into battle–but they’re not too happy with us now that we’ve done it!

Tomorrow, a guest post by local activist Grant Marcus.
