Occupy London, 29 October 2011 – there ARE alternatives and it is possible!

There has been way too much negativity in the media about this campaign, but it’s serious and just wait or better – do act as well, if you care about the world you live in! it wont stay the same and it must not. water in the kettle is boiling hotter and hotter… and when those 99% will reach the 100% temperature the world (read – mainstream politics) will just have to change. And dont believe those who say those campers are just vagabonds or fribbles or just people who have nothing else to do. there is serious talk going on (i actually spent today an hour discussing all these crisis/ socialism/ capitalism/ neoliberalism/ growth/ cuts-related issues with random people in the camp) and a great level of keenness to change and do changes is in the air. i have captured just some of the ideas spread around there and if you disagree with these, i’m afraid, you are among the 1% and you gonna be in trouble soon 🙂 cheers.

P.S. before writing my own reflections on this subject, i found this article about Neoliberalism and Occupy Movements and thought that for time being i would want to share it as a deeper insight into this Occupy issue as i strongly agree with the arguments explained in there.
