People from Occupy Queens along with the Commons Coalition and Organization from Jackson Heights, Woodside and Corona are getting together to share their ideas and knowledge on how the different ways in which a politics of the commons can be developed. In particular, we are interested in understanding how groups and communities working on housing, health care, education, food, human and workers rights, energy, immigration, information technology, and communication and knowledge resources can develop a vision of these resources as commons: a third form of social organization to the state and corporate capitalism.
