More on Occupy

Still in solidarity with the Occupy movements around the world, but with several hesitations and criticisms. Here's an important article:

And here's the trailer of a badass documentary that I saw last night with Dru. I encourage everyone to check it out... an especially interesting perspective from Swedish filmmakers during the Civil Rights Movement. Features commentary by Talib Kweli, Erykah Badu, and Questlove; also a fly soundtrack. (Y'hear Joaq?)

In the spirit of these times, if you're looking for a good, quick nonfiction read: You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train by Howard Zinn is damn inspirational. (I believe there's also a documentary about Zinn by the same title).

Beijos e gritos,
