I recently borrowed for a 3 week period (now expired) a video entitled "The 99%: OCCUPY EVERYWHERE. Upon viewing, I thought it necessary that I own my own copy. I discovered I couild "own" a copy by downloading same from Amazon.com for a price. That is often a convenient and good way to view worth watching twice videos. However, I wanted the in-the-box copy. I went to Amazon's online store site for that. I do have it ordered; but I was shocked to see that I had to PRE-order this video based on largely pre-2012 events.
Credits and comments at the end of the video boasted the successes the OCCUPY MOVEMENT had with various important very recent political developments and initiatives. That let me know its proponents considered it part of an ongoing current major global process.
The OCCUPY EVERYWHERE video was heavy with footage about global revolution and "SDG"s. "SDG" stands for SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS. Jeffrey Sachs who originally hails from the Detroit Metropolitan area (Oak Park) was featured heavily throughout the video footage. He is the primary figure behind the administration of the Agenda 21 cum Agenda 2030 cum Millennium Development Goals cum Sustainable Development Goals program.

Following on from the Festival Week seven years ago, we have seen great political, social and economic upheavals, manifesting in initiatives such as the Occupy Movement, the “Arab Spring”, and the continued focus, with varying success, on the importance of the UN Millennium Development Goals. Together they are making a significant impact on awareness of social issues and matters of spiritual principle. We have also seen how challenging it is for nations and communities to express these values and to reform the structures which will serve the common good. While self-interest or national interest is uppermost, there can be no "social harmony", no security or unity, no freedom or well-being. Perhaps the next seven years will see "the sacrifice of selfishness" coming into its own as people of goodwill recognise the need for sharing and the contribution of all parts of society towards the growth and prosperity of the whole. The word sacrifice means "to make whole", and the group’s work is therefore closely linked to the strengthening of the bridge between the higher and lower kingdoms of nature.
Whether they were/are directly behind the Occupy Movement, I'm still collecting the evidence. Perhaps more of you out there already have it. At any rate, they are applauding it and it appears that fresh moneys and determination on the coalition of anarchists/left wing extremists/New Agers/Occupy Movement activists now in obvious motion is on the march.
