On 20th February we dismantled the Hay Hill camp, stacked the rubbish, swept up and looked around at a place that had become very special to us. When we set up last October, none of us knew how long it would stay. In the event, it became one of the longest continuous occupations in the world. We met thousands of people, and even if not everyone was happy to see us, at least we did what we promised - a peaceful, legal protest that shone some light into some rather dark corners.
We were often asked "So what are YOUR solutions?" But Occupy isn't about handing out solutions. We have all been conditioned to accept the system, to read the "truth" from school books and holy books, and stop thinking for ourselves. If Occupy has achieved anything, it is to make people think differently. Many people have come away realising maybe for the first time that they are both the problem and the solution.
