October 30, 2011 | Occupy Boston's one-month birthday party

ALEX INGRAM, 23

ROLE AT OCCUPY: MEDIA, MEDIATION, SOCIAL CLUB

HOW HAS OCCUPY IMPACTED YOUR LIFE — FOR BETTER, WORSE, OR NOT AT ALL? "All three. For worse: I'm a lot more stressed than I used to be. Not at all: I'm still not a political activist, I'm just a guy helping people. For better: I met so many wonderful people to add to my life."

THEN (above) "That was our one-month birthday. . . . [Some of us] thought, 'You know what would be great for us? If we gave the cops some cake.' As a peace offering, and also 'cause it's their birthday, too — of sitting there watching us."

NOW  "I'm in the obr.fm radio station. I spend a lot of time here producing, hosting, and editing shows, and contributing not just to the movement but the world — getting people's voices out there."
