The Occupy movement started in 2011 as “Occupy Wall Street” in New York City, but even though that particular protest ended it doesn’t mean that the movement is dead. On the contrary, it seems that it’s getting stronger, more widely spread and more established across the world. People protest across the globe, for different but still somewhat similar issues – social and economic inequity, authoritarian regimes, poverty, environmental issues, global warming and many more. Many of those protests have adopted the label “Occupy,” used as some sort of password for organizing and carrying out protests, as an online hashtag to facilitate communication and information, as a key word in manifestos, posters and pickets. The Occupy movement lives through micro protests over strictly local issues in small communities and through large-scale protests such as the recent ones in Turkey and Egypt.
The Occupy movement is a heterogeneous one, not a strict organization with somebody to regulate all the activities. This means that if a person wants to get acquainted with it, he or she will have to do some online browsing and searching and to go through different sources to get information, since there is no central information base.
