This Is What Democracy Looks Like: The Future of #OccupyBoston

In this week's Boston Phoenix, we continue our ongoing coverage of #OccupyBoston with three stories. 

OCCUPY AMERICA: In this week's editorial, we strongly suggest that the city find a way to accomodate the growing movement on Dewey Square -- and also urge that the movement's friends in organized labor (who will be showing up in force tomorrow) find a way to broker a deal with the city. 

FIVE OCCUPATIONS IN FIVE DAYS: Our bulldog reporter Chris Faraone spent the week touring the biggest movements on the East Coast -- #OccupyWallStreet, #OccupyDC, #OccupyBaltimore, #OccupyPhilly, and of course #OccupyBoston -- and returns with a report on how America's largest grassroots uprising is progressing. And where it might go next. 

THE ANARCHIST'S PLAYBOOK: Liz Pelly has been on the front lines of Boston's DIY scene -- and on the front lines of #OccupyBoston. Here, she looks at the roots of #Occupy's transformational direct-action tactics -- from horizontal organizing and consensus-building techniques to gift economies and everyone's favorite new hand gesture.
