  • Occupy London Film Snippet - 02 - Get out of my body space!

    387 views 2 months ago

    Occupy London - The Film, follows the ideology, the passion and the dilemmas of the Occupy London movement through the eyes of ten of its protaganists including the filmmaker and consequently how much they learned from this now in-famous activist experience.

    Interspersed with intimate footage of the protest camp, the film follows the occupiers' emotionally challenging and often overwhelming journey, as they come face to face with the fault-lines in their well-intentioned social justice driven ideology.

    Amongst the dilemmas experienced by the protesters were:

    How to deal with the ever growing number of street dwellers?
    Should mainstream media attention, that depends on a two-sided story construction, be prioritised?
    What influence does the money manic City of London have over the Church, and as a consequence should we work with the Church?
    Should we leave by choice or fight our corner?

    This and much more unfold as the film takes on a journey from hope to hard work. Show less

    This playlist is a collection of all the Occupy London videos I made.
    I lived in Tent 165 for 3 months going home for weekends to re gather my energy and mind. Living in a tent, in the middle of London in the winter was tough but I learnt so much about so many things in doing so, namely that the only way change will ever happen for the better in this day and age is to firstly believe that it is possible.

    The hits on many of the videos are so humble because they were initially presented on my Occupy London Vimeo Channel.



    Occupy London Stock Exchange Initial Statement

    This initial statement was collectively agreed by over 500 people on the steps of St Paul's on 26 October 2011. Like all forms of direct democracy, the statement will always be a work in progress and is used as a basis for further discussion and debate. The current system is unsustainable. It is undemocratic and unjust. We need alternatives; this is where we work towards them.

    We are of all ethnicities, backgrounds, genders, generations, sexualities dis/abilities and faiths. We stand together with occupations all over the world.

    We refuse to pay for the banks' crisis.

    We do not accept the cuts as either necessary or inevitable. We demand an end to global tax injustice and our democracy representing corporations instead of the people.

    We want regulators to be genuinely independent of the industries they regulate.

    We support the strike on the 30th November and the student action on the 9th November, and actions to defend our health services, welfare, education and employment, and to stop wars and arms dealing.

    We want structural change towards authentic global equality. The world's resources must go towards caring for people and the planet, not the military, corporate profits or the rich.

    The present economic system pollutes land, sea and air, is causing massive loss of natural species and environments, and is accelerating humanity towards irreversible climate change. We call for a positive, sustainable economic system that benefits present and future generations. [1]

    We stand in solidarity with the global oppressed and we call for an end to the actions of our government and others in causing this oppression.

    This is what democracy looks like. Come and join us!

  • The Holy Land of Israel and Palestine. Play all

    The Holy Land, a different name in every language. Calling that land either Israel or Palestine, alienates passionately powerful people from the discussion. It is time the land was called something else altogether. Land of Canaan is one suggestion, but the Holy Land is a different set of words in each language which is more appropriate.
