Occupy South Africa: Watch Out, Watch Out


Weeks before South Africa hosts a global conference on climate change,  Greenpeace activists were arrested after chaining themselves to a gate and climbing a crane at one of that country's many coal-fired power plants, part of a broader Occupy movement in cities across South Africa. Nice video to the tune of Mavis Staples' "We Shall Not Be Moved," from the fabulous, "We'll Never Turn Back."


Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
