Al Jazeera English presents: “Fault Lines - History of an Occupation”
History of Occupy. (So far)
1. Difficult, annoying, hard to endure.
2. Attempting, making an effort, doing one's best
“A lie is like a potion
First it gets you open
Then you swallow whole straight for the truth
No chasers, skip religion and the politics
And head straight to the compassion
Everything else is a distraction”
- Talib Kweli, Distractions

So proud of Art (one of my favorite people) and of Oakland (my hometown).
Occupy Oakland has cast itself as the true champion of America’s workers, creating a potentially troublesome rift with the Occupy movement’s sometime allies in organized labor.
‘Occupy’ protests across the country are promising, though often deaf to the issues facing people of colour.
