Occupy History

From: Sandy Polishuk (polishuk@easystreet.net):

We invite all historians to join in showing support for Occupy Wall Street
and the entire Occupy Movement by signing on to Occupy History.

Inspired by the creativity and strength of Occupy Wall Street and the
Occupy movement around the world, Occupy History adds its voice in support
of those speaking out against and demanding solutions to growing injustice
and inequality, both economic and social.

We encourage historians to work to build the discussion beyond inequality
and injustice to include the history of these struggles, and the changes
needed.

You can add your name to this statement by going to occupyhistory.us
We will only use your email address to communicate with you.

In addition to showing our support for the Occupy Movement, Occupy History
plans to provide resources to the Occupiers:

Locally we would like to be a resource Occupies can go to for speakers and
discussion leaders

On our website, we plan to provide resource pages with book and film
recommendations Occupies can use for educational purposes

We hope to develop a list of films, or perhaps the films themselves, that
could comprise a film festival of the history of progressive political
movements in America and around the world.

We hope you will join us.

Please share with your colleagues.
