A new documentary is coming soon - here is a kind of teaser of "The Revolution is Love", Occupy Wall Street soul captured - ideas of community, love and a 'sharing society'. Nothing really new, I think it is a hipster recovered 60s package.
The occupation in New York is one of a lot of manifestations around the world. In the case of Occupy Wall Street, protesters were forced by the cops (and the cold wind) to get out of the Financial District in the south of Manhattan. But in Egipt protesters still fighting in the streets and the same is happening in Bahrein: they are involved in a revolution for democracy. Not only Time Magazine, but also respected thinkers like Eric Hobsbawn, said that 2011 is the year of the protesters. We don't know how's it going to end, what kind of effects those protesters can hold in their hands and what are the next steps. But for now, they are the evidence that I need to say: my generation can do something in the world.
