I have never felt so inspired and empowered before. This is not only because of the massive wave of protests taking place across the entire world, but because of the way activists have played such an important role leading up to and during this exciting global movement -- contributing with creativity, joy, love, and support.
From the brave Egyptian women in Tahir Square, assemblies of Greek protesters in Syntagma Square, the protesters who slept for weeks on the floor in Madison's capital building, who pitched tents at occupations across the US, participated in general strikes, and rocked out in flash mobs.
Well done to you all!
What an awesome year 2011 has been, and 2012 promises to be even better!
