EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Asher Platts has been active in the occupy movement since its inception (full disclosure: he served as Directory of Photography & filed producer for the documentary I am currently finishing).

He is also running for office. State Senator in Maine’s District 8, to be specific. From his campaign website (AsherPlatts.com) :

Before going to Freedom Plaza & Occupy Wall Street, I wrote an article in which I called on protesters to take hold of the reigns of government by running for office:

“I want to see the people occupying Wall Street bring about the major reforms they are demanding. It’s my hope that they will carry this energy and excitement to their home towns, and run as candidates in 2012. And in 2013 we hope to see them occupying their state capitols not as protesters, but to claim seats of power in government.”

Now, coming back from nearly three months of being in DC and on Wall Street, I have been presented with the opportunity to take my own advice.
