Occupation Is Not Recreation

Sign du jour at eviction du jour (Occupy DC), but the message feels true–doubly so–right now for Occupy Philly: it’s not fun & yet it also doesn’t feel serious. To my mind, our occupations/decolonizations absolutely need to be extra joyous & extra thoughtful if we’re really serious about social transformation. Even when it’s hard. Or maybe more so then.
