Today is the anniversary of the Occupation of Freedom Plaza in Washington, DC. The roots of the Popular Resistance project come from that occupation and was developed with the advice of many people involved in that effort, as well as allied campaigns around the country. We began the occupation on this date in order to link the Afghanistan War with the austerity budget that was announced that week. The reality of a two-party plutocracy that linked the Wall Street and Empire economy. While we began organizing long before the Occupation of Wall Street began by the time we began there were hundreds of occupy encampments around the country. OWS began on September 17th and sparked a national revolt that continues to have a political and cultural impact today.
