November 8, 2011 » Occupy Movement Is Human Powered

After NYPD seized fossil- and bio-fuel generators from Occupy Wall Street protesters, they turned to pedal power to keep laptops, phones, and cameras functioning. Environmental advocacy group Times Up! helped set up the generators. According to one article, it would take 11 pedal-powered electrical generators to meet the New York group’s needs. Meanwhile, protesters in San Francisco are also generating their own electricity with help from Rock the Bike.
