Forward Association, 2011

Inspired by the spring's movements in Tahrir Square, protests across the globe, from Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv to Zucotti Park in Downtown Manhattan have sprung up, with a broad array of goals and visions. While the fundamental criticism of the Occupy movement has been its lack of focus, it is premature to dismiss the protests as inherently doomed. Whether the protestors end goals will be achieved, or whether they themselves are clear on them, is, for now, a secondary issue. The denunciation of the broken system is the task at hand. Soon however, the true challenge, of rebuilding a better system, will begin.
