CCEC was proud to sponsor the recent screenings of Occupy the movie, at the DOXA Film Festival. The film provides a great perspective on the protests, the police response, the media coverage, and the analysis behind the actions. The Occupy Movement is still with us, and many of us with them. The issues that provoked mass protest remain as well - abuse of power and privilege, fraudulent leadership, unduly complex intercompany contracts, the transfer of wealth, and an absence of accountability. One message is worth repeating, "Un-Bank".
