Dear Friends, Fellow Occupiers and Occupii.org users
The monthly payments to keep Occupii.org going have, for the last year, been sourced from the administrators and contributions from some members. This support is much appreciated and can not be celebrated enough.
Occupii.org is an advert free zone. In order to keep this space free of corporate sponsors and/or adverts, we need to draw attention to the on-going costs of keeping this site available and ask for your help where, if and when possible.
In requesting this support from the community we also want to be clear that no member need feel that they are being asked to give what they don't have, or that they will be thought of as less valuable because they are unable to help out with the maintenance costs.
The monthly amount is £40. If 20 of us donated £2 a month for example, it would be covered.
Please donate/help if you can.
No amount is too small.
Much love and gratitude for all that we are and can become...

David C. Gorczynski, of Pennsylvania's Occupy movements, was arrested and charged with two felonies for holding two signs: one saying “You’re being robbed” and another that said “Give a man a gun, he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he can rob a country.” Gorczunski is being charged with bank robbery and "terroristic threatening". He was released on $10,000 bail. Felonies for Free Speech!Continue

Just raising this for discussion and contributions -You are to become a creator, not a competitor; you are going to get what you want, but in such a way that when you get it every other man will have more than he has now.” ~ Wallace D.

Can we share ideas on how we Occupiers can do community oytreach through community service.projects? Occupy Sandy is one example Occupy Homes is another. These can be big or small.
I remember the 'good old days' when nearly every day there was an important and exciting Occupy livefeed to watch. I remember when this site started and all the excitement. I now come here and seem to find [to my horror] a moribund site archiving the past and not with a NOW....can we please change that!?! Comments?..if there is anyone out ther to comment......Continue
Who do you know who'd be interested in participating to the production of an international event combining a symposium, a social forum and a musical show to reflect together, as citizens, on means to reach social justice under a dynamic democracy where misery would be minimized (or eliminated) and human potential fully developed, in an attempt to bring self-actualization to every human being?

How do we know we are on the right path ? It occurred to me that it might help our choices to share our experiences here. and it might be helpful to others at a crossroads. I will kick off by sharing what helped me,As a teenager my parents suggested careers that might suit me, more financially rewarding perhaps and suiting my talents, they meant it kindly but my heart was not in those careers, my heart drew me to nursing and I followed my heart into nursing though as they pointed out the pay…Continue
