99% / MIC CHECK! / LOOK AROUND / YOU ARE A PART / OF A GLOBAL UPRISING / WE ARE A CRY / FROM THE HEART / OF THE WORLD / WE ARE UNSTOPPABLE / ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE / HAPPY BIRTHDAY / #OCCUPY MOVEMENT / OCCUPY WALL STREET / list of cities, states and countries / OCCUPY EARTH / WE ARE WINNING / IT IS THE BEGINNING OF THE BEGINNING / DO NOT BE AFRAID / LOVE.

Via a post by sevensixfive on some Spatial Intervention: Five Moments from #occupy.

To be truthful a number of other parts from the post moved and encouraged me. Fred ends with a hope “Other models of spatial production, and indeed, even of reality creation…have the potential to defuse the political control over the built environment. Inhabitation is speech, and it can create new realities.
