Shifting Discourse

I am surprised and disappointed to see so many of my young, creative minded and critical friends denouncing #occupy in full.

Friends in San Francisco say they’re frustrated with people who are “jumping on the boat.”

Friends writing from Ohio say they don’t like how unfocused the movement is.

Friends in New York who spoke passionately about the Arab Spring are quick to judge the diffuse actions of this large movement.

Partisan political positioning aside, here’s the question for today:
what does it mean to intentionally #occupy space?
