GEO 10 - OCCUPY! CONNECT! CREATE! - Imagining Life Beyond "The Economy"
This text is part theory, part strategy and part call-to-action for the immediate and long-term work of identifying and seizing spaces of democratic practice (occupy!), linking them together in networks of mutual support and recognition (connect!), and drawing on our collective strength to actively create new ways of meeting our needs and making our livings (create!).
Part 1: This Is Our Moment
Part 2: The Name of the Trap is "The Economy"
Part 3: From "The Economy" to Livelihood (principle #1)
Part 5: Beyond "the Market" and "the State" (principle #3)
Part 6: From Necessity to Possibility: Economics as Democratic Organizing (principles #4 and #5)
Part 7: Occupy, Connect, Create!
