Hello, Greg & Sarah:
Occupiers and fellow travelers have done a ton of invaluable work in the New York area in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. There has been a lot of good press on OccupySandy and the like, but there are undertones in the reporting that imply that somehow OWS had disappeared until the storm, and that the reason they are doing so much good now has mostly to do with the ability to leverage social media.
Of course, I don’t think anyone disappeared anymore than I think that the reason so much good is being done is just because the kidz are good with teh twitters–but maybe you can talk to what happened in the last year or so that has made OccupySandy work so well, and what you think the connections are between last year’s occupations and this year’s organizing.
