Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, interviews David DeGraw about the birth and evolution of Occupy Wall Street on its one year anniversary: “This is about empowering a new generation to be leaders, to be engaged…. We have millions of people engaged in creating change that were not engaged and creating change a year ago…. Occupy globally is the big bang of humanity’s next phase of evolution. It created this wild new ecosystem of mass transformation. Millions of people turned on, let out of the propaganda cage. The first step is that you have to open the prison door so people can come flying out and realize that we can change things. You say another world is possible. Now, another world is happening.”
Since February 2010, we have built the 99% Movement by surviving off of individual donations from people like you. Unlike most other so-called "independent" sites, we are not funded by partisan foundations or political organizations. We are fiercely independent and committed to citizen empowerment through the dissemination of critical information.
