Hi, I wasn't sure how I could help, I've been having some discussions on the fb occupy ottawa group, and I thought some of the comments there might be useful to others to share about the movement. I was also involved at one point in a 'shared community space' group that was sort of about... how linking groups together into a functioning community could change the world... it got a bit spiritual, but in the end I was rewriting it for pine gate zen's fall newsletter, so that was kind of ok. I have another that was a personal... allegorical tale, that was supposed to illustrate my spiritual journey/ lessons learned, fairly loosely based on real events, people and encounters, etc. for a course called Lifesong with Barclay McMillan.
Ok I'll jump to the posts:
"on the arguement that violence is necessary to make change, because non-violence cannot do so" http://inner5pac3.blogspot.com/2011/10/on-arguement-that-violence-is-necessary.html
"The bias of disempowering people because someone else thinks that person is 'privileged'" http://inner5pac3.blogspot.com/2011/10/bias-of-disempowering-people-because.html
oh this is a youtube playlist with some short punchy clips (the first few, anyways) that I called 'conspiracy awakening' because I thought it showed some basic... important things pretty quickly... http://inner5pac3.blogspot.com/2011/09/conspiracy-awakening.html
here is the shared spaces article, I actually put a bit more time into this one, it is a little bit more polished up http://inner5pac3.blogspot.com/2011/09/shared-space-article-about-747-words.html
this is the allegory about personal spiritual growth. be gentle if you decide to comment, I do bleed. http://inner5pac3.blogspot.com/2011/10/lifesong-assignment-3-allegorical.html
