We live in a world where unemployment and staggering levels of debt are the new normal, where poverty and homelessness are met by police violence and incarceration. The entire global economy is broken, and politicians in the US and elsewhere remain powerless to do anything about it. It's time to take power into our own hands, to occupy the spaces from which we have been excluded and reclaim everything that has been stolen from us.
