Occupy Sebastopol was a part of the international, progressive, socio-political Occupy movement against social and economic inequality and the lack of "real democracy" around the world. In solidarity with other Occupy groups, a prime concern was how large corporations (and the global financial system) control the world in a way that disproportionately benefited a minority, undermined democracy, and was unstable. "Occupy" formed part of what Manfred Steger called the "global justice movement". The most visible aspect of Occupy Sebastopol was an "information tent" erected in the downtown Sebastopol Plaza in November 2011, sanctioned by the Sebastopol City Council, as well as a number of protests in the latter part of 2011. By the time the tent came down in March 2013, much of the energy of the Occupy movement had dissipated, but a number of its aims were carried on through Transition Sebastopol and efforts by the City Council to make Sebastopol a more sustainable community through Solar Sebastopol and other programs.
