The main issues raised by Occupy Wall Street were social and economic inequality, greed, corruption and the undue influence of corporations on government—particularly from the financial services sector. The OWS slogan, "We are the 99%," refers to income and wealth inequality in the U.S. between the wealthiest 1% and the rest of the population. The protesters were forced out of Zuccotti Park on November 15, 2011. Protesters then turned their focus to occupying banks, corporate headquarters, board meetings, foreclosed homes, and college and university campuses.
Welcome to the Blackspot Collective, our global network of activists, artists, designers, writers, musicians, poets, punks, philosophers and wild hearts.You're now an insider of Adbusters’ activist wing.Together, we can hack deep into our failing global system and fundamentally transform it. Clean up the toxic areas of our mental environment. Make the price of every product tell the ecological truth. Reverse the upward flow of wealth. Punish corporations that betray the public trust. Trigger a paradigm shift in the "science" of economics. Make secrecy taboo. Clamp down on the arms trade . . . and in nation after nation, pass constitutional amendments requiring a referendum with at least 50% approval before any war can begin.Achieving these goals calls for nothing less than an all-out Metamemetic Insurrection, a total reinvention of the activist playbook that will see the rise of a Third Force, a geopolitical power-base that operates totally outside the traditional Left and Right.With the most revolutionary tool ever invented in the palms of our hands, we will come up with bold new ways to live, love, and think.Stay tuned for tactical briefings, campaign info and critical intelligence. Submit your paintings, poetry, cartoons, visual memes, posters, rants and photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org and send your strategic input to email@example.com.Let’s get together, build an empowered global network, share ideas and tactics . . . and make the future compute.For the wild,Blackspot Collective
