Occupiers Occupy Cali. College ~ Invited Back To Occupy Again


Rap, Yoga & Occupy – Occupiers Occupy Cali. College
Invited Back To Occupy Again

“Good morning, Colleagues
Yesterday’s class was one of the most stimulating of my many decades of teaching so we are having the same guest speaker, Arthur Klein, again tomorrow in my Film 9 course (Filmmakers of Social Protest: Moore and Stone.)

Arthur (54 days) ... for the world to awaken to the idea tht we are all 100% - so we need to take care of each other.

The class was conducted along the lines of a General Assembly after presentation of the protocols used during many of the Occupy Assemblies around the country. Students articulated major concerns that were addressed by myself, Arthur Klein and two other LA Occupiers [Patty Alfonzo & Guido Corleone, who both were arrested during the OLA eviction] one a hip hop artist, whose song at the end held the class in rapt attention.

The rap artist’s closing song inspired one of my students in the class to sing her own 99% song; she told the class she was a music major, wanted to work in the music world and here was her opportunity to show her filmmaker classmates what she could do!

Arthur Klein showed video clips ranging from Occupy LA footage to an “Occupy Love” excerpt from doc in progress (by talented docmaker, Velcrow Ripper) to the “I’m Mad as Hell” sequence from “Network,” to the trailer for his doc, “Y Yoga Movie” followed by a few minutes of a closing yoga exercise, much appreciated.

So returning will be Arthur Klein tomorrow (Thurs., 12/8) 1:30 for an hour and half
and possibly hip hop artist and LA Occupier, Guido Corleone of the Luminaries.

Arthur will explore again the possibility of streaming live his presentation to the class

Arthur was also a Fox Studio executive and journalist in a previous incarnation but more recently has been using social media and live streaming to connect others to important ongoing events.

Arthur’s presentation and interaction with the students provided an inspiring learning environment, especially considering the impact of the Occupy Movement.

“They told me I’m not allowed to go into your studio in the stock exchange. That’s been the rule for the last four years … We’ve done this twice before on the street in front of the stock exchange. Now we can’t even do it there. At some point CNBC has to just stand up to the stock exchange and say, we’re the media, we’re the press.” — Michael Moore to CNBC producer on being forbidden from doing a CNBC interview inside the NYSE or even on the sidewalk outside, Monday, October 24th, 2011

Michael thank you for continuing the good fight. You are not alone!

Thank you Michael and Lawrence for stepping out.

This is history unfolding and this isn’t the beginning of the end but the end of the beginning.

Michael Moore @ #OccupyWallStreet (Day 19, 10/5/11)

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011, Mike made his fifth visit to #OccupyWallStreet and delivered the following address from the steps on the east side of Liberty Plaza (Zuccotti Park) amplified by the ‘human microphone’:

“This is a historic day. This movement has come together because the people wanted it to happen. Not because of a leader. Not because of a dues-paying organization, but because the people wanted it. I love the human microphone and I’ll tell you why. Because this isn’t just my voice or his voice or her voice. It’s all of our voices. Let’s keep the movement like this. Do not let politicians co-opt this movement. Each one of you here today represents another 100,000 Americans who couldn’t be here today but are happy that you are here. And they will be there in their cities. The occupy movement is everywhere. Occupy! Everywhere! Continue reading
