TheOther99 is committed to covering smaller Occupations. It's our mission to make sure that the whole world is watching our occupiers, no matter the size of the occupation. For too long, people in positions of authority have been able to count on a disinterested, lazy, news media. If our news companies wont do the job, we will. But we need your support to continue to do this work. Please contribute to our Media Fund, and help keep us reporting. If you want to know more about our situation, please read Jesse LaGreca's post, or send me a message here at Kos.
