With Radhika Balakrishnan, Helena Ribeiro, & Ken Wark. Moderated by Moustafa Bayoumi
The Occupy Movement, originating at Wall Street, but spreading rapidly across the country and the globe, represents an important moment in the history of political protest. It captured public imagination and shifted the terrain of political discourse. This panel brings together scholars and activists to discuss the strategies of the Occupy Movement to reclaim space, interrogate contemporary economic policy, rally the “99%” and rethink the meaning of democracy. The speakers will examine how the Occupy Movement may or may not be a lens to explore freedom as a democratic, anti-capitalist, nonhierarchical, feminist, and anti-racist practice.
