There were 157 occupations nominated in Occupy Supply’s contest to reward outstanding local occupy activism. After a preliminary round of voting, 20 now proceed to the finals.
The list of nearly 250 nominated occupy actions across the country inspired us, and I know it inspired others. We got lots of feedback like the one from our Pittsburgh liaison, who said “everyone is noticing, marveling at, and being inspired by other cities’ actions.”
We hope the well-document list of nominated actions continue to serve as proof that Occupy is far from dead.
- The 5 occupations receiving the most votes in the final round will each win a command-post tent with lighting, presentation boards and tables worth $5,000 to support their exceptional community activism. The tents will be delivered by DADT activist Lt. Dan Choi, with a celebration courtesy of Occupy Supply.
- Some occupations have had their encampments evicted or have moved indoors, so we’ll also be awarding laptops with built-in webcams to the top 3 vote-getting occupations that cannot use a tent.
- All other semi-finalists will win a $100 gift certificate for supplies from the Occupy Supply store.
