Occupella began leading songs at Occupy Oakland and Berkeley in 2011, one of the many groups born in Occupy encampments and surviving them. This book chronicles Occupella’s first year; the group is still singing and bringing a sense of continuity, fun, and optimism to Tax the Rich demonstrations, $15/hour picket lines, Black Lives Matter vigils, and anti-fracking rallies. Five professional singer-songwriters formed the core of the group, but Occupella is everyone who sings along. Occupella’s political parodies and updates of union and civil-rights songs are available at for anyone to print out and use.
