Occupy Together On Ustream!

Posted on by

Thanks to an increasingly connected and engaged public, the Occupy Wall Street protests have already spread far beyond the confines of Wall Street. People all over the world have been organizing their own “Occupy” movements in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street, and they’re harnessing the power of social media and live video (hey, that’s us!) to connect with supporters. We’ve been working with local organizers to set up ad-free channels under the main OccupyTogether Ustream account, and so far over 70 cities and schools have started channels.

If you want to keep up with the Occupy Together movement, we’ve compiled a list of the participating cities (so far!) and their channel URLs. All of the channels are being housed under the main OccupyTogether account, so check back regularly as more cities get added!
