The movement to occupy Wall Street is an inspiring example of direct action to challenge the economic and  political system.  The Autumn Awakening is an opportunity to educate and inform the conscience and consciousness of ourselves and our neighbors.  Post here with ideas, action and visions for an awakened Oakland–networked with other autonomous communities in North America and around the world.

In the Bay area the fall marks the beginning of the rainy season, a time when the natural world is vitalized by water even as the days grow shorter.  On a planetary level, time is short but renewal is in process. This blog is an avenue for folks in the Oakland area to communicate about our efforts to reclaim and expand the commons and to build movements and methods that can create and sustain a transition to a just economic and political system.

  1. I am most comfortable in my apolitical stance. My emphasis is on spiritual (which encompasses ALL) evolution/illumination. That being said one of my personal endeavors is to become a vessel for infinite love. The challenge is on! I will be supporting/occupying Oakland in every way that aligns with my spirit. Also, there is a forum for many discussions at mhayesmpowers.com. The current topic is BLACK love.

    Luv YA!

  2. And we vote with our dollars, and not at the ballot box… We must, painful as it may seem, own the lazy voter turnout. The low end voter education. And yes, I’ll give a bit of the problem to term limits…

    We have to look at our choices, too… I’m pissed, but what is my part?
