Why an Occupy Boston Student Summit? The purpose of the summit is to strengthen relationships and exchange ideas among students who have been or want to be involved with the #Occupy movement. Occupy Boston has given student activists across Boston the opportunity to meet other like-minded students who wish to alter and/or dismantle the current political/economic system.

How is a summit different from a general assembly? At our Occupy Boston Student General Assemblies we generally focus on pressing issues, such as upcoming actions. However, the summit gives us a chance to discuss issues that we do not have time to expand on in general assemblies. Some examples include: confronting systemic oppression within the occupy movement, discuss the roots of education inequality, a historical memory of radical student movements, the organizational future of Occupy Boston Students, and more.

If you are curious but haven’t yet participated in #Occupy, this will be a great opportunity to experience the organic and collaborative nature of the movement.
