The Occupation Continues

The #Occupy movement is continuing to grow and there are some obviously different reactions depending on where the occupation is happening. I’ve got the news I’ve managed to follow below divided by region as much as possible.

And a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1967. It saddens me that it’s still applicable:

I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing-oriented” society to a “person-oriented” society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.
