MANY ASK: WHAT IS OCCUPY?

Occupying is behaving as if you live in the better world we all dream of: where basic needs are met for all, where greed is unacceptable, and where people consider others when they make decisions.

OTHERS ASK: HOW DO I  OCCUPY?

TODAY, BE KINDER THAN YOU WERE YESTERDAY
TODAY, BE MORE HELPFUL THAN YOU HAVE BEEN BEFORE
TODAY, WALK IN THE BETTER WORLD

BUT: WHAT CAN I ACTUALLY DO?

To be honest, being kinder and more helpful is everything. Imagine if all of the people who work for banks and corporations had been kinder and more helpful. How about the politicians? Globally, we would not be in the situation we are in today.

But if you want to take more concrete actions, then pick an issue that matters to you and pressure your government or a corporation to change their behavior.  Some issues that others have chosen are human rights / education /environment / food security / health / energy policy. (In some countries there are issues that involve specific laws or policies that occupiers are working to change. For example, in the U.S., the government has decided that corporations should have the same rights as human citizens and the banking industry has abused the mortgage process to their benefit.)

To occupy does not require that you go out and protest, or that you join a group. You have power, alone. Set an alarm clock to go off at the same time every day and do your action - send an email, write and mail a letter, make a phone call. Or do something more active - write a song, donate some food, help a stranger.

You may want to connect with others to join in their actions (or to invite others to do your actions). Many tools to do this are on the other pages of this website (click on the tabs above) and others are one click away.

Hopefully this page answers the questions that many have about occupy.  There are so many questions, but we definitely have the answer to the most important question:

WHO IS OCCUPY? YOU ARE OCCUPY.
