Political Perspectives: 

Occupy Sydney

A global movement is growing. From Egypt to Spain, from Greece to the United States, hundreds of thousands of everyday people are occupying. Occupy Sydney began on 15 October, with hundreds of people reclaiming Martin Place. Flanked by the imposing towers of the financial and political elites, where a handful of people make decisions which affect the whole society, a new democratic space was established.

The Cross Border Collective, based in Sydney, works to create a world where people’s movement is not controlled in the interests of capital.

Our reading and writing group gets together once a month to talk about a few articles we have read and to work towards writing articles, zines and other materials that we can use in our on-going campaign to break down borders at the nation-state level as well as other social, cultural, political and economic borders which operate to divide us.
