Gallery: Happy Thanksgiving from the Inhabitat Team!

STARRE, Contributing Writer: This year I'm most thankful for Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Los Angeles, and all the other Occupiers around the country. There's even an Occupy Iowa City, which I saw when I was out there to speak at an event. I am so proud of those people facing often-crummy weather, too-often abusive police, and indifferent or nefarious mayors and governors. Nothing has given me more hope for this country, which for so long has been dominated by the greedy who have been rewarded handsomely for their avarice, at the expense of people, the environment and future generations. For so long we have all stood by while those with so much took more, and those with less were pushed into poverty. I thank and salute those brave Americans who are standing up for the Constitution and the rights that belong to us all. I'm especially proud this began in NYC, proving that once again, this city is filled with the most crazy-intense-get-shit-done people in the country.Occupy Thanksgiving! I'm sure the movement will inspire thousands of dinnertime debates - wish I could listen in! I'm also thankful for all the amazing places and natural spaces I've gotten the chance to travel to this year, like Trinidad and Tobago.
