Occupy Democracy ‘This is What Democracy Looks Like’

Overlooking The Acropolis in Athens is a hillside.

On the side of the hill, is a natural amphitheatre with a large stone.

Orators would stand on the stone and address the crowd.

That is what democracy looked liked.

The last time we saw democracy, real democracy, was in ancient Greece.

Democracy is not casting your vote at the Polling Station, deciding who will sit in the House of Commons and act for Big Business, it is not deciding who will sit in the council chamber and get in bed with greedy developers, it is direct action, it is participation in the political process every day of the week.
