I am writing this essay on the eve of a great anniversary. Exactly two years have passed since the fateful day when 1000 protesters, answering the call of the Canadian Adbusters magazine, converged upon Wall Street to directly confront the most powerful economic forces in the world. Combining the occupation tactics of the Tahrir Revolution earlier that year, the consensus-based decision making process of the Spanish Indignados, and the spirit of the Bonus Army, some 150 of those protesters set up an encampment in Zucotti Park. The symbolism of this action was clear to everyone involved: we will venture beyond the normal 2-hour protest by maintaining a 24/7 occupation. We are fed up with the status quo as it is, and we will sacrifice months of time out of our own schedule to bring this corporate oligarchy to its knees and force it to reckon with our power. If Wall Street will not give us a fair democracy through the political system, we will create it ourselves. We will camp at this park and refuse to leave until we see a more just society.
