Description

YES! Magazine has been at the forefront of reporting on the Occupy Wall Street/99% movement that has spread all over the U.S. and around the world. Now the editors of YES! have pulled together outstanding reports and analyses of the who, what, when, where, why, and how of this movement - especially the ways it "changes everything" in creating a world that works for the 99% and not just the top 1%. Occupy Wall Street protests have spread around the world, with a common slogan of "We are the 99%." But there is a great deal of confusion and misperception about this movement. This book clarifies the who, what, when, where, why, and how of this movement. It provides profound insight into the movement's power, messages, significance, methods, and impact. The editors of YES! Magazine bring together voices from inside and outside the protests to show how the meaning and impact of this movement are much bigger and more far-reaching than is being reported. The central thesis of this book is "This Changes Everything." The authors show how this movement changes (1) how citizens view themselves, (2) what citizens see is really going on in the world, (3) what is possible in creating a world that works for the many (the "99%") and not just the few (the "1%"), and (4) how citizens can bring about changes they seek in their communities, nations, and the world.
