      This short music video combines slow-motion footage that I captured on October 10, 2011 at Zuccotti Park (center of the Occupy Wall Street protest), with time-lapse and other location footage from my earlier work-still-in-progress "Financial Capital." The music and lyrics of Nitzer Ebb (here, a non-commercial use) began ringing in my ears when I immersed myself in Zuccotti Park. Rather like Laibach and other European musical "industrialists," Nitzer Ebb's aesthetic of domination that borders on Fascism is simple mockery. By juxtaposing this ironic song of corporate submission ("Payroll") against our once-in-a-generation outcry of financial disparity, I am inviting rumination while staying carefully agnostic about the essence of Occupy Wall Street.

      • Occupy Tactics: Violence and Legitimacy in the Occupy Movement and Beyond

        A Debate between Chris Hedges and the CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective on Tactics & Strategy, Reform & Revolution Why a debate? Since Occupy Wall Street took Zuccotti Park in September 2011, there has been a resurgence of social movement activity in the United States. As momentum has increased, age-old questions over tactics, strategy, and goals have returned to the fore. What is violence? Who gets to define it? Do illegal actions have a place in our movements? This discussion never takes place in a vacuum or on a level playing field; rather, it occurs within the context of a struggle that is already in progress, where every statement has immediate ramifications for the participants. Differing tactical approaches often reflect fundamental differences in strategy and goals. At the core of these issues is the question: What are we fighting for and how do we get there? This moderated debate will feature: Chris Hedges, Journalist Chris Hedges is an American journalist, author, and war correspondent, specializing in American and Middle Eastern politics and societies. He will speak to the perspectives behind his controversial article “The Cancer in Occupy” regarding black bloc tactics and anarchist participation in the Occupy movement. B. Traven, CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective B. Traven will support the case for a diversity of tactics in the Occupy movement and in broader anti-capitalist struggles worldwide, illustrating an anarchist critique of the status quo and a vision of social transformation. CrimethInc. has produced many books and articles, including “The Illegitimacy of Violence, the Violence of Legitimacy,” composed in part as a response to Hedges’ “The Cancer in Occupy.” Moderated by Sujatha Fernandes, CUNY Graduate Center Sujatha Fernandes is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Queens College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. She is the author of several books on urban politics and culture; the latest is “Close to the Edge: In Search of the Global Hip Hop Generation” (Verso). She has written about the Occupy movement and recent global uprisings for The New York Times and The Huffington Post. Opening remarks by Sarah Leonard, Dissent Magazine Sarah Leonard is Associate Editor at Dissent magazine, a quarterly of the Left covering culture and politics.

          • The Inhuman Microphone


            from Tom Hannen / Added

            This musichackday hack was inspired by Occupy Wallstreet's Human Microphone. Because megaphones are banned at the protests, one person shouts a message, then everyone else repeats it. What Happens Our hack circumvents the “no megaphones” rule. The protester shouts a message into their phone. It gets uploaded to a server. Then it gets sent to the other phones nearby. The phones are synchronised, and then they are all triggered to play the message back at the same time. How it works We created an iPhone app using Phonegap to record and upload the audio (the “protester” in the scenario above). The playback of the audio happens in a simple web-page. You can use a Google Chrome on a laptop, or an iOS device (we didn’t have an Android device for testing). One issue was trying to get the audio in sync; network latencies meant that we couldn’t just fire the audio off as soon as the client received it - we have to “synchronise watches” as it were, so that they all trigger off at a given moment. This was achieved using Node, Socket.io, and some hack day time-sync-javascript-magic. Can I try it? Yes, as soon as we get it online again! bit.ly/inhumanmic Who we are @inhumanmic on twitter Built by @indeox @hpettersson @shoez @tomhannen
