Maybe you read but don't post? I'm seeing the same posters quite a lot on here. But is there anyone else alive out there?

Yes, There is a continuing Occupy movement in Canada, but most of the people involved are working under a variety of different banners, though in some communication and in common cause. Many of the Stop Harper, Save The Bees, Stop C-51, Stop Monsanto and a variety of other multi-city events headed by different non-Occupy organizations are organized on the local level by Occupy groups, who still identify within as Occupy, though they identify themselves in media, etc., by whatever cause they're representing at that time. A group of us, after a series of meetings of Occupy people from across Canada in Toronto in 2012, began working under the Occupy name in the UN open consultation process. We have been continuously engaged ever since. We examined consensus statements, videos, memes, everything, to try to get a strong sense of what positions were clearly agreed on by the vast majority of Occupiers, regardless of the many internal conflicts that existed so that the statements we made in the UN consultations would be consistent with the values of a majority of Occupy participants in Canada. http://www.mediacoop.ca/blog/daniel-johnson/22274

Good comment. That's pretty much ditto for here too. Yesterday's Occupy, amateur activists, are today's more learned and seasoned professional activists, and they're wearing different hats. They are using a plethora of ways to propel our movement forward.

many supporters of OWS have gotten tired of being attacked for trying to address wealth inequality and have left the site, I do think many of them have moved on to more decisive groups

No OWS supporters were hurt in the production of this question so.. WTF - Are You Talking About? Are you mischievously conflating blind-faith proponents of voting for the corporate captured Democratic Party with ''supporters of OWS''? Those who left the site, finally realised that this forum will stand true to OWS principles, as encapsulated by https://www.popularresistance.org/issues/ + Co-option is NOT an option! Maybe the big issue that should concern us on the forum now is- why's the 'Sign Up Page' here closed?

Good point. Shame we can't get the mods we need. Would you do it, if asked?
