Occupy Common Ground

If you look even further (including within your imagination) you’ll find the seeds of a most amazing potential are hovering at the edges of that park. The opportunity right here in Tucson is to harness that growing resentment of a corporate banking government world and focus it on local solutions, local economy, local food security, local culture. Yes, we live in a global world, yet the present economic structure of that world is based on unsustainable growth, disconnection and competition.
