38min | 2012
A gripping portrait of the 'Occupy Wall Street' media revolution, #whilewewatch is the first definitive film to emerge from Zuccotti Park - with full access and cooperation from masterminds who made #OccupyWallStreet a reality. The #OccupyWallStreet media team had no fear of a critical city government, big corporations, hostile police, or a lagging mainstream media to tell their story.  Through rain, snow, grueling days, sleeping on concrete; they pump out exhilarating ideas to the world.  Fueled with little money, they rely on the power of Twitter, texting, Wi-Fi, posters, Tumblr, live streams, YouTube, Facebook, dramatic marches, drumbeats and chants. As the film unfolds, we witness a new dawn with the power of social media.

The video won't play for me. Are you able to fix? I'd like to view it.

If people want change, they should stop voting for politicians who are bought by special interests. The economic crisis was partly the result of bad public policy, which was implemented because certain interest groups selfishly lobbied for that. This means not voting for any of the candidates who have lots of advertising backing them. Cast protest votes for minor party candidates whom the mainstream media say can't win; it's fine to vote for someone who can't win. It is satisfying to deny consent to this abuse that the Occupy people are protesting. If enough voters start to do this, then more credible politicians will decide that it's viable to run for office while refusing/ignoring campaign money that's designed to influence them. Such politicians would be less inclined to accept harmful policy ideas. We would not vote for a politician who's known to take bribes. Why vote for politicians who accept the legal form of bribery that our political system allows?
