Pre-Occupations

In the fall of 2011, I decided to visit some of the sites of the Occupy movement to get a better understanding of what the occupiers were thinking and doing. I had come of age in the 60’s and I was curious to see how this movement compared to what I remembered from those long ago years.

Over the next 6 months, I visited sites in New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, Sheffield, England, Harvard and New Haven.

I had been an eco-tourist before; this was my first time as a protest-tourist.

The stories here are the notes from my visits.
