Occupy the money supply (treasury)
A Facebook group (shudder) that has really good up to date information on monetary systems and the legal systems intrinsic to them. Set up by some great local occupiers and has steadily grown and stayed on topic and avoided all the silly trolling and flame wars. I really wish they would get a blog and get off Facebook, but if you must be on Facebook this is a good place to learn.
This is the ONLY Facebook group endorsed by occupymelbourne.net.
This blog is definitely on the right page UK/EU based exposing the current and future cams the government will try on the public
