The global #occupy movement so far: a map (and a database)

The Occupy movement has been in the front of the scene all throughout 2011, winning media attention, taking over where the Arab Spring and the Indignados left off and ideally avenging the Tea Party instrumental use of all the self-organization/non-hierarchical discourse. So, at the end of the year, it’s time for a little review.

Members of an Occupy-affiliated group, We All Occupy, have been collecting resources from activists from all over the world. The result: a listing of over 1300 geocoded Occupy locations, with websites, Facebook, and Twitter URLs where possible. A (still to be completed) database for all of you activists, data/citizen journalists. And of course, a global interactive map available on Mapbox for your viewing pleasure!
