Occupy the Farm documentary

Occupy the Farm is showing at the UA Theatre in Berkeley this week. I watched it Saturday night, together with a group of us who'd taken part in the struggle. We loved it, and at the end burst out chanting: "Whose farm?" "Our farm!" "Whose farm?" "Our farm!"

I feel it was a very well-done documentary. Dynamic, inspiring, it conveys a sense of community activity, dozens, sometimes hundreds of people working together, planting crops and at the same time fighting to save this last bit of East Bay farmland from the developers, protecting the commons from the privatizers.

Directed by Todd Darling, and starring the many activists, being ourselves.
