    #OCCUPY Everywhere: From Arab Spring to American Spring
    By Phoebe Fletcher

In this first post, Fletcher looks at the origins of the movement – which are more complex than many might assume.

      Occupy movement holds nationwide ‘People’s Parliament’
      New Zealand members of the Occupy movement are holding a nationwide ‘People’s Parliament’ this evening, at the four main centres, including Dunedin. Proponents say it’s an open public forum hoping to discuss the country’s future. The event coincides with Armistice Day celebrations of peace. This morning, Occupy groups around the country held a minute’s silence to reflect on working towards peace and environmental, economic and social justice.

      OCCUPY Everywhere: Busting the myths
      By Phoebe Fletcher,
      In part two of her three-piece series, Phoebe Fletcher from the University of Auckland’s Film, Television and Media Studies Department explores the myths behind the Occupy movement. For starters, are the protestors out of line with mainstream opinion? No. And they’re not a bunch of unemployed hippies either.

      Myth #1: The protestors are out of line with mainstream opinion
      Myth #2: The protestors are a bunch of hippies and unemployed
      Myth #3: The protestors are white
      Myth #4: The protests have not achieved anything

    Might even take Roger Waters seriously if Pink Floyd hadn’t spent a year in tax exile in 1978. Expediency is the death of integrity.

      New York police evict anti-Wall Street protesters
      New York police have evicted Occupy Wall Street protesters from a park in the city’s financial district, two months after they set up camp and sparked a national movement against economic inequality. Wearing helmets and carrying shields and batons, hundreds of police dismantled the sea of tents, tarps and protests signs at Zuccotti Park, arresting 147 people, including about a dozen who had chained themselves to each other and to trees.

      We Are The Many

      Ye come here, gather ’round the stage
      The time has come for us to voice our rage
      Against the ones who’ve trapped us in a cage
      To steal from us the value of our wage

      From underneath the vestiture of law
      The lobbyists at Washington do gnaw
      At liberty, the bureaucrats guffaw
      And until they are purged, we won’t withdraw

      We’ll occupy the streets
      We’ll occupy the courts
      We’ll occupy the offices of you
      Till you do
      The bidding of the many, not the few

      Our nation was built upon the right
      Of every person to improve their plight
      But laws of this Republic they rewrite
      And now a few own everything in sight

      They own it free of liability
      They own, but they are not like you and me
      Their influence dictates legality
      And until they are stopped we are not free

      We’ll occupy the streets
      We’ll occupy the courts
      We’ll occupy the offices of you
      Till you do
      The bidding of the many, not the few

      You enforce your monopolies with guns
      While sacrificing our daughters and sons
      But certain things belong to everyone
      Your thievery has left the people none

      So take heed of our notice to redress
      We have little to lose, we must confess
      Your empty words do leave us unimpressed
      A growing number join us in protest

      We occupy the streets
      We occupy the courts
      We occupy the offices of you
      Till you do
      The bidding of the many, not the few

      You can’t divide us into sides
      And from our gaze, you cannot hide
      Denial serves to amplify
      And our allegiance you can’t buy

      Our government is not for sale
      The banks do not deserve a bail
      We will not reward those who fail
      We will not move till we prevail

      We’ll occupy the streets
      We’ll occupy the courts
      We’ll occupy the offices of you
      Till you do
      The bidding of the many, not the few

      We’ll occupy the streets
      We’ll occupy the courts
      We’ll occupy the offices of you
      Till you do
      The bidding of the many, not the few

      We are the many
      You are the few
