Activists strategize to support Occupy
Globe Correspondent / October 27, 2011
“…The evening began with a round of introductions over hot cider and chocolate chip cookies and a burst of applause when 24-year-old Philip Anderson spoke.
‘I’m Philip Anderson, originally from Westwood but currently residing in a tent in Dewey Square,’ he said.
Anderson and fellow Occupy Boston organizer Jason Potteiger, 25, of Cambridge, want to see more Occupy-themed meetings in living rooms like Crocker’s. They plan to launch a website soon to help organize the sessions.
‘Our point is to decentralize – to get people to stop saying they support Occupy and to start saying they are part of Occupy,’ Anderson said. ‘We want them to occupy their own space in an e-format . . . then we can broadcast it so people feel their views are being represented on a global level.’’’
