Occupy Vancouver: A modern Agora…


I’ve been keeping a collection of great things to say about Occupy Vancouver since it began- just waiting for the right reporter to share them with.  This opportunity came last week when David P. Ball showed-up at the food tent. He was explaining to someone next to me that he was writing a “good news” story about our movement- so, I jumped on the opportunity and threw it all at him.

He took three of my favorites:

  • “We come here to break mother’s golden rule: ‘Don’t talk to strangers'”
  • “This place is a modern agora. We have people from every order of society coming here — and we talk.”
  • “It’s okay to talk about politics in Vancouver again!”

Thank you David, of all the reporters I’ve met at OV, you are the only who is a true gentleman…
