I was thrilled to get to talk with two of the organizers of the October 2011 Freedom Plaza occupation. They also helped organize Occupy The Debates and have stood up for justice in many places in many ways. Most recently they've been fighting against the Transpacific Partnership. I guarantee you will learn something from this interview.
Occupy Denver has taken the lead on this and is organizing a variety of events around the first presidential debate to be held there October 3rd. Events include a People’s Forum with live entertainment and opportunities to share stories and a People’s Dialogue to discuss the top issues that are chosen in the survey. And Occupy NOLA is holding a People’s Convention on Octcober 27.
The results of the Occupy the Debates survey and events will be collected nationally and shared with presidential candidates for response and posted on the OccupytheDebates.org prior to Election Day.
