!Download Book ♫ This Changes Everything: Occupy Wall Street and the 99% Movement ☪ The first book on the movement that has changed the political landscape Features contributions from veteran progressive observers and Occupy activists Goes beyond describing events to explore the larger meaning of the movement The Occupy Wall Street movement named the core issue of our time the overwhelming power of Wall Street and large corporations something the political establishment and most media have long ignored But the movement goes far beyond this critique it is changing everything the way people view themselves and the world the kind of society they believe is possible and their involvement in creating a society that works for therather than just theAttempts to pigeonhole this radically decentralized fast evolving movement have led to confusion and misperception In this volume the editors of YES Magazine bring together voices from inside and outside the protests to convey the issues possibilities and personalities associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement There are chapters by Naomi Klein a speech she gave at Occupy Wall Street Ralph Nader David Korten and Rebecca Solnit among others Occupy organizer David Graeber explains the principles behind the now famed general assemblies Occupy activist Marina Sitrin describes her experiences during the first month of the occupation and Hena Ashraf another Occupy activist talks about the movement s efforts to address issues of race a chapter which also shows the general assembly decision making processes in action And there s much This Changes Everything offers insights for the many already involved actively protesting or expressing support in other ways and for the millions who sympathize with the goal of a equitable and democratic future Brief hopeful and accessible The OWS story thus far is in this book which serves as a fine record of the OWS autumn especially for those seeking clarity on its aims As a primary source it will have long An interesting at the time snapshot of Occupy NY, with twenty bite size essays by those present in the first months As such it presents a helpful reminder and education of the movement s origins, ambitions and achievements The live format ignores the detraction of later and the critiques of sharks and thus, an inspiring read Not loftily sentimental. I agree with Nasser s review, which called the booklike an extended political pamphlet premature Most of the articles 2 3 pages each were written in the heat of the moment by those who were participating I understand that probably the intent was to get out quickly the message about what Occupy was about, but in 2015 this quality leaves one unsatisfied Even the pieces by David Graeber and Naomi Klein are quickly penned, propaganda like but without much analysis It does give one a I agree with Nasser s review, which called the booklike an extended political pamphlet premature Most of the articles 2 3 pages each were written in the heat of the moment by those who were participating I understand that probably the intent was to get out quickly the message about what Occupy was about, but in 2015 this quality leaves one unsatisfied Even the pieces by David Graeber and Naomi Klein are quickly penned, propaganda like but without much analysis It does give one a good sense of the spirit of the time, but little else Interesting look into Occupy Wall Street I don t necessary agree with the politics behind it, but I found learning about how it was organized and played out was engaging. Meh I was hoping for good things with this book, but it didn t do anything for me If I d read it in 2011, maybe I would ve enjoyed itAlas.My main complaint it s very sterile It takes a movement full of passion and makes it dry and academic I m all for academic studies, but it s not what I was expecting Highlight the letter to the man who started the Arab Spring Try to find that article online it s quality. Most of this book was repetitive, since it was different people s views on the same event and mostly written early.There are a couple pieces that are very good and thus raise my overall opinion of the book Those are No Leaders, No Violence Nathan Schneider How Inequality Poisons Society Brooke Jarvis Six Ways to Liberate Main Street from Wall Street David Korten How to Create Living Wage Jobs Sarah van Gelder and Doug Pibel abbreviated some titles too much typing involved This was a good explanation of a movement that has been largely mischaracterized by the media at large and by its detractors I cannot say I agree with all the points they make or all of their goals, but they do have many good ideas, some of which I would like to see implemented and they have some very inspiring essays It s a nice revitalizing read for those feeling disillusioned with politics and government in general Motivating. A primer to the complexities of the Occupy movement The first half of this book tells great stories from inside the beginning stages of OWS This book left much to be wanted, though, as it was hastily thrown together about two months after OWS kicked off As a collection of essays, This Changes Everything will give you an array of opinions and show you that OWS does not side with a political agenda, but sets out for solidarity and economic equality. If i am to describe this book, i d say it was premature It s clear that it was put together in such haste as to publish it to meet a deadline, or rather spread awareness of the movement during the time of the occupation.It s not actually a book, it sof a collection of different articles written by many people, some of which were actually involved in the Occupy movement The book does give a clear idea about what was going on on the inside of the movement, but it vaguely touches the reason If i am to describe this book, i d say it was premature It s clear that it was put together in such haste as to publish it to meet a deadline, or rather spread awareness of the movement during the time of the occupation.It s not actually a book, it sof a collection of different articles written by many people, some of which were actually involved in the Occupy movement The book does give a clear idea about what was going on on the inside of the movement, but it vaguely touches the reasons behind the Occupy Wall Street Movement And since the chapters articles of the book were written by many different people, there is just a lot of repetition.The only thing that would make me recommend this book is that it s a very short one 84 pages But, after reading it, i have to say that i m still to see a book that goes into details about all the ins and outs of the Occupy Movement Collection of short articles from the initial months of the Occupy movement While this was assembled quickly to document current events, it s also a well selected overview Most pieces are 2 3 pages, and lend themselves well to occasional reading and reflection, or could be used as seeds for group discussion.
