Occupy London Stock Exchange

I lived at the St Paul's Camp Site London for 3.5 months (going back home on the weekends to clean up and edit!) There, I learnt more about our current financial system and its inherent injustice as well as all the holes in my shared 'activist' ideology than I have in 20 years of being an activist (on and off) and of being interested in social justice economics.

This page is divided into two parts.

The top scrolling module contains video produced while I was still at the camp.

The bottom are videos I have made for Occupy after the eviction.

This site contains my favorites but there are more on Occupy LSX London Channel

ani di franco at Occupy

January 12th 2012: Set against imagery depicting the harsh realities of living in tents in the middle of one of busiest cities in the world, Ani Di Franco sings Splinters, entertaining a crowd of Occupiers in the foregrounds of St Paul's Cathedral.

Splinters is a song about the overt comforts we seek in everyday living in our modern societies.

The City of London vs Occupy London Stock Exchange trial was awaiting judgement when this piece was made. It aimed to inspire people to get involved in the Occupy movement, utilizing the hit pop song Rolling in the Deep by Adele to give the sense of urgency and desperation that was experienced by the faithful Occupiers.

The Bank Of England Says "Occupy Are Right"

In October 2012, one full year after the Occupy The London Stock Exchange had started the Executive Director of Financial Stability at the Bank Of England agreed to be on the panel of an Occupy organized discussion. About 500 people came to her the man declare that Occupy are right in their economic analysis. However the measures he suggested to fix the endemic problems that Occupies highlights in their ethos, fall significantly short of addressing any problems. This video highlights why.

Occupy London Stock Exchange

Many websites have sprouted baring the Occupy name in some form or another.

There is a duality of loyalty Many publications will mention Occupy to garner support but also to show support. I made films for them but I also made these films for me.

I liken the term "Occupy" in political discourse be it grassroots, NGO's, the UN or various parliaments as a good bug. One that does good, represents good in a raw form, in an 'open to interpretation' form. Like the good bugs in our stomachs that eat the bad bugs.

My favorite Occupy sites are

ONN - Occupy News Network

Occupy London on Facebook (There are many facebook pages)

Occupy LSX Official Website - with all officially endorsed notifications.
