Very important to distinguish between the *occupation* and the
*movement*. The two are not identical. The occupation at Liberty Park
could end at some point, but I believe a tipping point has been
reached in the birth of a movement, a collective will to resist and
oppose corporate America's "one-sided class war." At this point, there
is perhaps still an umbilical cord....
If the occupation does end (and I don't see that happening anytime
soon), it must be on our terms and under our control.
The movement is beginning to or will begin to develop its own dynamic,
apart from physical occupations of terrain, although that continues to
be an effective strategy.
