I was/still am a participant in the Egyptian Revolution in its three phases: (1) a revolution-in-the making (2003-2011), (2) from-protesting-to-a-revolution at Tahrir Square (January 25 - April 4, 2011) and (3) building a New Egypt (at present).

    As some 2,000 people recently marched from Ryerson University down Church Street, in a steady drizzle, chanting "Occupy Bay Street not Afghanistan," their numbers and their passion indicated their message resonated across a wide spectrum of society.

  • The capitalist mantra of the one per centScott Stockdale
    October 30, 2011

    While Occupy movements continue to escalate around the world, based on the dominant theme that "We're the 99 per cent and you're the one per cent," - the dominant message is the anger that a small proportion of powerful people hold the majority of society's wealth -- and they seem to be getting richer.
