"#Occupy Archive is documenting and saving the digital evidence and stories from the Occupy protests worldwide that began in September 2011 in Lower Manhattan. Occupy Wall Street (OWS) inspired groups to form in small towns and large cities around the world. # Occupy Archive seeks to represent each of those groups with individual collections.

In addition to saving materials currently available on the web related to #OWS, this project is also collecting stories, photos, video, and sounds from those participating in, organizing, or observing Occupy Movements.

The Archive was created and is maintained by volunteers working together at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. This project builds on experience gained from creating other digital collecting and archiving projects such as the September 11 Digital Archive , Hurricane Digital Memory Bank, and Bracero History Archive.

This project is not officially affiliated with Occupy Wall Street."
