Occupy the Debates

Occupy the Debates is encouraging activists and critical thinkers in every American city to organize their own events around the Presidential debates this month, fostering dialogue and dissent. Already there are events scheduled in San Diego, Denver (with political comedian Lee Camp and live music by Junkyard Empire), and here in my own beautiful San Francisco, on Mutiny Radio:

We’ll not only be live-streaming the debates in our gallery space and on the air, but we’ll also open up our microphones to the public to rebut the Master Debaters, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Both of these politicians are renowned liars, who sit in denial of the voice of the people. Get live on the air with Mutiny Radio DJs for each of the debates in October, and make your voice heard against their campaign cash machines! Discuss the issues that most likely won’t be covered by either corporate candidate: public banking, suppression of protest, discrimination, net neutrality, climate change, the NDAA, and the drone program!

We will be screening at our studio and gallery space on 21st & Florida St. in the Mission District, admission is free and all are welcome!

October 3, 2012 – Domestic policy
October 11, 2012 – Vice Presidential
October 16, 2012 – Foreign and domestic policy
October 22, 2012 – Foreign policy

Each debate will screen at 6:00pm, with viewer-driven discussion after.

Wherever you are in the country, defy the binary options we’re being offered by getting involved and organizing your own event at Occupy the Debates. If you are here in the Bay Area, I hope to see you at Mutiny Radio, BYOB!

      Let me know how to help or get involved in that. Are you doing this thru occupy boston?
      (Haven’t seen anything on the site yet).

      Maybe we should connect off-forum. I’d be into making this happen in Boston/metro.

        Am not affiliated with Occupy but think that this is one of the best ideas to come out of the movement to date. Have never done anything like this before but would love to contribute in some way/shape/form. Would be down for chatting off-forum…

          I think Obama un-occupied his own debate

    can’t tell if acting like an ignorant cunt for laughs or actually an ignorant cunt (and/or disinformation agent)…
