Activism, NGOs, Charities, and Non-Profit
Andreas Groke - 11/16/2011
Sending cameras around the world to everyone who wants to be part of an international film project to create a film from a lot of people in different places around the world is probably one of the best ideas this year. Project: Filmbox is doing exactly that. Since November students and creative people from all over the world can become part in producing a film that is reflecting a new spirit among young people by sending in their film clips. Everyone feels connected to each other somehow and that international feeling of unity is what the final film of this project is going to be all about.
Digging their own movement’s grave

For the preceding several weeks, much of the American population has been at once bemused, perplexed, and perturbed by the contra-Wall Street protesters — not to say loiterers or squatters — in larger cities from New York to Seattle. Fortunately, most of the protests outside of Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan have already fizzled, and are now well on their way to becoming a distant nightmarish memory in the American collective conscience.
Occupy Wall Street Visited

Last Saturday while in New York City I went downtown to visit the Occupy Wall Street group and also ended up walking in their protest march around big bank buildings. A terrific experience with a huge group chanting things like “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out!”
