"There is a side of the Occupy movement that does not consist of street marches and confrontations with police. It doesn’t involve the occupation of parks or shipyards. It is a side that receives little to no press, but in the end may be one of the most important aspects of the movement: The community meeting. There are scheduled meetings listed practically every night of the week on the Occupy Portland Calendar. Some are planning meetings, some are lecture meetings, some are for team-building. There are also community cell meetings that do not make it to the calendar–small groups, quietly working behind the scene to network, organize and create change."

Debate/discuss these efforts to create change. I personally have little to add...yet, as the quoted portion says pretty much what I would say.
