This Changes Everything: Occupy Wall Street and the 99% Movement
by Sarah van Gelder, staff of YES! Magazine
AVAILABILITY: Readily available
Publication Date: November 2011
Description: The Occupy Wall Street movement named the core issue of our time: the overwhelming power of Wall Street and large corporations, something the political establishment and most media have long ignored. But the movement goes far beyond this critique. This book shows how the movement is shifting the way people view themselves and the world, the kind of society they believe is possible, and their own involvement in creating a society that works for the 99% rather than just the 1%.
Since their founding in 1996, YES! Magazine and YesMagazine.org have been showing how powerful ideas fused with practical actions can drive profound change toward a more just, sustainable, and compassionate world. Project Censored calls YES! “the standard for solutions journalism.” Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman calls YES! a “vital voice of independent journalism.” The Utne Independent Press Awards have repeatedly recognized YES! Magazine.
YES! Magazine is donating royalties from the print edition of this book to support the Occupy Wall Street/99% movement.
