Occupy Venice: Venice Talks

Occupy Venice has started a new series called “Venice Talks: Ideas to Empower the Peaceful”. This evening’s inaugural “talk” will feature Peter Joseph, the founder of the Zeitgeist Movement. There is limited seating, so please RSVP. The event is free.

Peter Joseph of the zeitgeist movement

Founded in 2008, The Zeitgeist Movement is a Sustainability Advocacy Organization which conducts community based activism and awareness actions through a network of Global/Regional Chapters, Project Teams, Annual Events, Media and Charity Work.

The Movement’s principle focus includes the recognition that the majority of the social problems which plague the human species at this time are not the sole result of some institutional corruption, scarcity, a political policy, a flaw of “human nature” or other commonly held assumptions of causality in the activist community. Rather, The Movement recognizes that issues such as poverty, corruption, collapse, homelessness, war, starvation and the like appear to be “Symptoms” born out of an outdated social structure.

“Venice Talks: Ideas to Empower the Peaceful” featuring Peter Joseph.
