Draft Proposal

Occupy Philadelphia is on-going. The slogan is we are the 99%. The goal of the collaboration is to overcome economic inequality and have included nonviolent protests and other demonstrations. For my final project I would like to create a video timeline of Occupy and discuss what could have made it more successful. This will be done with a myriad of pictures, screen shots of the websites, and other data that can be collected such as statistical slides. The argument behind my project will be a critique of Occupy Philadelphia, naming areas that went well but mostly highlighting the areas which could have been better in drawing more action and ultimately having more of a global impact. That is the ultimate goal of social movements, is to tell their story and make it have global impact or reach to be able to really ignite change.
