#OccupyFC | 17.10.2011 14:57 | Occupy Everywhere
On Saturday the 15th of October, a new footballing phenomenon began in London. The power of football as a global language is well documented, but its power to occupy spaces for resistance and encourage unity in the face of global inequality is only now being realised. We decided to bring a football with us to the protest, and it soon became clear that many people agreed with us, with even police h...aving the occasional kick about! After talking to many other occupiers, we have decided to form a group based in the St. Pauls village that continues to use football both as a tool for entertainment and resistance, as well as for communication with police.
Occupy F.C. welcomes everyone to participate in this movement, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexuality or age (or anything else). We fully encourage diversity, as we believe only a diverse yet unified movement can succeed in our aims! We encourage everyone to make suggestions as to how we can continue to use football in these ways!
