DemocracyNow.org - As the Occupy movement approaches its two-month anniversary, we're joined by two guests who are studying its strategies and successes. Author Jeff Sharlet helped found the group, Occupy Writers, and is assisting efforts to reestablish the evicted library at Occupy Wall Street. His recent article for Rolling Stone is "Inside Occupy Wall Street: How a bunch of anarchists and radicals with nothing but sleeping bags launched a nationwide movement." Democracy Now! speaks with Sharlet and also speak with Marina Sitrin, who is researching global mass movements from Spain to Egypt, and has just returned from Greece. Sitrin says the Occupy movement’s assemblies offer a "radical, if not revolutionary, way of organizing ... When we're in our neighborhoods, and come together and relate in that way, it's more like alternative governance."
