|Occupy Wall Street’s democratically run website, www.OccupyWallStreet.net, is ready for your articles.
The focus of ‘street.net’ is to provide news and information relevant to the New York-based Occupy Wall Street community. There is now an open call for occupiers to contribute content, where you can:
- Go to an action and send us pictures, video and writing about what takes place and why the action was meaningful to you, etc.
- Write an analysis piece about the movement, its past, present, future, etc
- Profile an Occupy Wall Street activist and/or send us information about an activist or group of activists you think we could profile.
- Write about an upcoming event in NYC you think the Occupy community will want to know about.
In the month leading up to our one-year-anniversary on #S17, they are especially interested in:
- Profiles of folks impacted by debt, including housing, medical, student debt and taxes.
- Highlights on the mortgaging of our future environment to support the present lifestyle of the 1%, and how we can withdraw our consent.
So make sure to take advantage of our new occupy media resource, and congratulations toOccupyWallStreet.net for getting it off the ground.
