Synopsis: We want to share insights into the formation of a new social movement as
it is still taking shape in real time. The video was shot during the
5th and 6th day of the occupation. This idea to occupy the financial
district in New York City was inspired by recent uprisings in Spain,
Greece, Egypt, and Tunisia which most of us were following online.
Despite of the corporate media's effort to silence the protests, and
Yahoo's attempt to to censor it in e-mail communication, the occupation
is growing in numbers and spreading to other cities in the US and
WE THE PEOPLE HAVE FOUND OUR VOICE

We the people have found our voice.
(NYC General Assembly, September 27, 2011)
If it’s our sharing that makes us powerful, why return to normal?
This life is more worth living than the one we left behind.
(Leaflet, Solidarity March with Occupy Wall Street, October 5, 2011)
How do our voices of dissent encounter each other?
Do we really want to merge our raging cacophony into a unified political agenda?
What if the voice of the people is always in a mode of becoming?
Welcome to the hidden track of Occupy Wall Street:
We are discovering new ways in which our desires can resonate together.
This space is our sonogram of potential.
THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW (Occupy Cuny)
The Time For Action Is Now (Occupy CUNY) from ivarad on Vimeo.
We are both students at the Film and Media Department of
Hunter College New York. And we are very excited to see how the
spreading Occupy Wall Street movement is giving new momentum to the
militant protest culture of Cuny (City University, NYC).
We filmed the second General Assembly at Hunter College, and the first
"Occupy Cuny" teach-in at Washington Square Park on October 21st, 2011.
During the last weeks, we learned how quickly small protest gatherings
can turn into new social movements. This is a document about the
struggle of students and adjunct faculty at Cuny.
This local struggle is part of an international student movement against neoliberal dictatorship.
This is only the beginning. The time for action is now.
