The Whole World is Watching

This video is posted on the Occupy Providence Facebook page, that can be reached here.

Much of the recent protests is like a trip back in time to the spirit of the 60’s when direct action and organized protest changed the national debate. But 40 years on there is one huge difference.

Information is liberated, distributed and free. Every time Occupy Providence gathers there are cell phones and cameras recording and streaming in real time. You can go to the Occupy Providence page and see direct, unmediated video.

In the 1970’s we used to chant, ‘The Whole World is Watching’. Today that is true exponentially.

One thought on “The Whole World is Watching
