WORKING GROUP TIPI - relations to Occupy movement

This group is named after the Tipi, the Lakotan name for a conical tent. Tipi comes from two words meaning 'to dwell' and 'they dwell'.

This is a working group to enhance and delve into what ways OAC relates and acts in relation to the Occupy movement.

As an aside Abraham, I agree that it would be worth a blurb to get things rolling here- I have spent enough time in a tipi to know that if it's not pitched right things get very wet very quick :)

How's this for a manifesto?

Leaving normalization behind: Notes towards indifference

In the elaboration of multiplicities, we reject those who would have us give up the radical joy of crisis for the misery of fossilization of our desires.
We must negate all activism—without illusions. In the elaboration of multiplicities, we reject those who would have us give up the radical joy of crisis for the misery of fossilization of our desires. What's needed is not humanism, and even far less mobilization, but a putting-into-practice of inoperative insurrection, a rejection in all forms of the teleology of impotentiality. The compulsive passivity proposed to us is like a bad joke, and instead of laughter we respond with rupture.
Our need to desire is less the articulation of a concept than the setting forth of a line of flight. Confronted with those who fail to recognize themselves in our festivals of negation, we offer neither sympathy nor criticism but only our scorn. It is necessary to commence in secret; not to dream of new ways to be productive, but to make manifest the subterranean desiring-bodies in the heart of each c-clamped pushbar. Every burning dumpster is a refusal to organize, a blow against the being of anarcho-liberalism, a recognition of the immanent logic inherent in the articulation of encounters.
To those who deride the singular ecstasy in a smashed window or a barricaded hallway, we propose nothing less than to destroy their pathetic totality, with every weapon at our disposal. This is a call to social war, not an insistence on absence.

Good point, when I get some more time tomorrow, I will go through each one and post something extensive, following this perhaps try and invite members individually to each group depending on what they have previously said.

I am up for this, Abraham. Indeed they all interest me. But do you think people will post comments without a lead from the originator of the page?
