The Occupy Movement is a decentralized global social movement that uses direct action, nonviolent civil disobedience, and horizontal networks of collaboration to challenge economic inequality, corporate control over the political process, and other forms of structural injustice. It was most influential between 2011 and 2012, with highly visible public occupations of public space in hundreds of cities throughout the world, but its practices continue to shape activism in a variety of contexts today. Participants emphasize the importance of self-organization, autonomy, transparency, collective decision-making, and mutual aid as means of building a more equitable and just society.
