My comments to the Occupy movement at last Saturday’s Occupalooza


We’re not trying to take our country BACK, we’re trying to take it FORWARD

Last Saturday night I was invited to make some comments to the audience at Occupalooza. I chose to focus my talk on the need for everyone in the Occupy movement to avoid making the mistake of “staying out of politics”.

Here are my comments:

Thanks very much to Jeff Morgan at Prometheus Motion Pictures who put the video together for me. Also, many thanks to the organizers of Occupalooza for inviting me to their most-excellent event. There is already talk of replicating it in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area and I’m very excited about that.
