Mainstream media are portraying the Occupy “movement” as a protest against economic policies that favour the rich. When you look at what is actually happening on the ground, however, the protestors are more concerned about the promotion of democracy than the redistribution of wealth per se. Thus, the media have created the expectation that the protestors should have specific demands, what I call technical feedback. Whereas the way they are organizing themselves represents what I call non-technical feedback. In other words, the protestors are demonstrating how democracy should be based on solidarity.
