My Occupy is the day-to-day journal of an Occupy organizer who, for several months, dedicated his life to the movement. It’s a one-of-a-kind, detailed account of how activists in the Denver area struggled to organize themselves while dealing with the authorities, philosophic differences among the activists themselves, and a public that was all too ready to turn its back on the would-be revolutionaries. My Occupy holds detailed accounts of conflicts between protesters and police forces; the specific measures activists took to organize themselves; and the organic evolution of Occupy culture. This is the story of Occupy from within Occupy, and is particularly focused on Denver.
$$ Suggested donation of $3 dollars at door. Donations also taken at food table and bar.
