Occupy Wall Street may be old news, but Occupy Santa Fe, now semi-permanently ensconced in the Railyard Park, is expanding in new directions.
This weekend, a series of workshops and teach-ins on a variety of topics will take place in and around the Railyard.
"I don't think we're going to stop with the protests and rallies, but, clearly, a very important next step is to really educate ourselves…on the myriad issues we're facing as a society and work towards solutions that are arising out of the people rather than from the top down," Donato Jaggers, "one of the many organizers" for OSF, says. "This weekend is just scratching the surface."
