- The first book on the movement that has changed the political landscape- Features contributions from veteran progressive observers and Occupy activists- Goes beyond describing events to explore the larger meaning of the movementThe Occupy Wall Street movement named the core issue of our time: the overwhelming power of Wall Street and large corporations - something the political establishment and most media have long ignored. But the movement goes far beyond this critique; it is changing everything - the way people view themselves and the world, the kind of society they believe is possible, and their involvement in creating a society that works for the 99% rather than just the 1%.Attempts to pigeonhole this radically decentralized, fast-evolving movement have led to confusion and misperception. In this volume, the editors of YES! Magazine bring together voices from inside and outside the protests to convey the issues, possibilities, and personalities associated with theOccupy Wall Street movement. There are chapters by Naomi Klein (a speech she gave at Occupy Wall Street), Ralph Nader, David Korten, and Rebecca Solnit, among others. Occupy organizer David Graeber explains the principles behind the now-famed general assemblies; Occupy activist Marina Sitrin describes her experiences during the first month of the occupation; and Hena Ashraf, another Occupy activist, talks about the movement's efforts to address issues of race - a chapter which also shows thegeneral assembly decision-making processes in action. And there's much more.This Changes Everything offers insights for the many already involved'actively protesting or expressing support in other ways'and for the millions more who sympathize with the goal of a more equitable and democratic future. ?Brief, hopeful, and accessible?The OWS story, thus far, is in this book, which serves as a fine record of the OWS autumn, especially for those seeking clarity on its aims. As a primary source itwill have long-term value.'?Library Journal?This volume makes a useful, timely, relevant contribution.'?New York Journal of Books"
