I thoroughly enjoyed Becky O'Malley's coverage of the Occupy sites she visited, and her elegant summation of factions, frictions, and flavors. I've played music at two Occupy sites, and support the energy, creativity, and collective spirit often in evidence.
But the Occupy movement is not about tents or territory. My hope is that our flexibility, mobility, and creativity, will keep us from "claiming" any particular piece of square footage or descending into typically lopsided battles with police over tents and tarps. We are bigger than that.
