I've been stoked to see twitter updates by the Post Carbon Institute saying they were giving out copies of The End of Growth to 99%ers and 1%ers. Going back to my previous post OccupyTransition, I think this is a very productive and intelligent approach to trying to help the protestors educate themselves and refine their demands into points that will make a real change in the world.

I came across this article and it seems to be saying exactly what I want to say in this post. If you support the movement, but can't physically show support then you should tweet or blog or something. There are things you can do.
