How to Occupy: Grassroots Practices for Global Change
By Films For Action / howtooccupy.org
Sep 29, 2012

HowToOccupy is conceived to promote and spread the methods, techniques and knowledge about peaceful occupation of public spaces while developing sustainable ways of living based on participatory democracy.

We are an open community based on free information, we believe in the power of synergy applied to creative commons and copyleft for the benefit of the many. Our goal is to establish a universal and accessible database made up of documents related to peaceful civil disobedience and grassroots practices, spreading it physically and on-line to the very assemblies, occupations and groups around the whole world. We hope to put together all the experiences the older camps have had in order to put them to the service of new occupations in a successive way, creating a collaborative chain of information . These are necessary tools for a peaceful rising up. We plan to install more features to this platform soon, as we develop and unite. Our project is only beginning, so we need everybody's help!
