Octupy, the corporate octopus, will be marching in the Rose Parade and has some interesting talking points. There is the connection to the mural on the fountain box. I was not there when it was created, but I certainly would have approved [where is said mural?]. There is the connection to the park itself: The puppet was built during the encampment, involved a wonderful cross section of Occupy Los Angeles and, in part, is actually made out of its trash.
Octupy, and Occupy Los Angeles, has a unique opportunity to shine in the Rose Parade. We need 32 dedicated puppeteers, working in 8 teams of 4, and a couple of stackers.
Octopy will be an autonomous puppet, operated by the process of consensus and moved by horizontal, participatory people power.
Can someone in media pass along a few talking points, or does it have to "go through committee" said very sarcasticly : ) but with a wry smile.
