"if you try and stop the pen, then you’re inviting the gun"

nice video from the occupy india / anonymous protests on june 9, against the indian government’s efforts to shut down internet sites including e.g. vimeo (how the hell did they pick vimeo that’s really known for high-quality videos that are shared by their producers!?). NH7 also published an interesting chat with anonymous india. (video by the awesome now delhi, discovered at wild city)

as a part of occupy berlin, i’m so happy to see this! people around the world are standing up for their legitimate rights. young people everywhere are realizing that we need to change the world. that democracy needs action and active participation. that they will no longer by silenced by the opium of consumerism or straight out oppression. right now, #opindia is fighting internet censorship, but who knows what will be next. maybe corruption?

one thing i am a little wary of is the aggressive tone. yes, it’s quite typical for anonymous, but not that typical for occupy. i’d like to contribute this video (on vimeo!!) from occupylove to the movement here, with charles eisenstein (the gift economy) talking about creating a world that works for everybody.

thx, dkomm! today is october 15, join the worldwide protests for #globalchange! this is the plan for berlin action. for the berliners who can’t make it please support the movement online by posting/blogging/spreading the message; there’s also a livestream you can watch.
i’ll leave you with two more videos that have impressed me (even though i don’t agree 100%, there’s a lot of very good points made).
