The reading talked about how the success of the Occupy movement relied on participation both on-line and in person. At first, I kind of thought that the on-line participation aspect was kind of fake. I was a little weary that the emphasis on online participation could lead to the kind of “slacktivism” we often see in online settings today. However, this idea that people need to be able to be physically present is also incredibly limiting. Giving the demographics of who was often present at the Occupy camps, one can clearly see some privilege involved in attending a camp. Attending a camp requires being in a place not to HAVE to go to work. This could mean that the people who are in the 99% and have families to take care of and bills to pay can’t participate in the same way that other people who have more privilege can. For this reason, I actually think that online activism provides opportunities for people to participate in ways they may otherwise be unable to without technology.
