Occupy Transition Working

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.

@PostCarbon twitter feed over a few days:

postcarbon just gave The End of Growth to an economist and he said he Totally agreed!

postcarbon Just gave @naomiklein an edition of The End of Growth. She's impressed by @occupywallstnyc as much as I am

postcarbon SEMINAR AT 1PM - peak oil/peak everything 4beginners, #occupywallstreet by the red cube across street @occupywallst @occupywallst Free Book!

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.
