What is the Occupy Movement?

The Occupy Movement is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. We are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants.

About OccupyMN

OccupyMN.org was the first website of the Occupy Movement in the state of Minnesota. Our goal is to provide an accurate reflection of the Occupy Movement and to also provide solidarity and support to the Global Revolution. This website is brought to you by 'First Generation Occupiers' from within the movement.
