I recall how after UK Uncut, Occupy Madison, Gaza Youth Speaks Out, the MENA-revolts (wrongly labeled "Arab Spring") starting, etc, etc and it finally came to Occupy where I was first aiding NYC's Occupy remotely then was "on the ground" at Occupy Stockholm,
we ended one of our General Assemblies by talking each getting to share our thoughts on currents events (me "I didn't think I'd see this, just spend my life preparing for future generations to be able to do this") and at about half-way, with participants from... I think 8 countries, most were crying, not from despair but from hope and joy.
One participant later told us of its friends having gone as volunteers to fight Franco and that this... this was a greater hope, for being global.
Now... Now, we've moved incomprehensibly far back.
