Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 24, 2013 10:54 AM

This is so worth listening to....When you take a coffee break, link on this and listen to what this wise, observant and reflective man has to say. He talks of many critical ideasa not just the occupy movement. 

Toni Mantis's curator insight, November 6, 2013 4:35 AM

Por @democracynow: "Chomsky dice que el movimiento Occupy ha ayudado a reconstruir la solidaridad de clase y las comunidades de apoyo mutuo a un nivel no visto desde los tiempos de la Gran Depresión. 

 

"El movimiento Occupy espontáneamente ha creado algo que en realidad no existía en el país: las comunidades de apoyo mutuo, la cooperación, los espacios abiertos para el debate ... personas que hacen cosas y ayudan a los demás", dice Chomsky. 

"Eso era una gran carencia. Existe una propaganda masiva, desde hace un siglo, que dice que no hay que preocuparse por nadie más, sólo hay que cuidar de uno mismo .... Reconstruir la solidaridad de clase, aunque sea en pequeñas ámbitos de la sociedad, puede ser muy importante, para cambiar la concepción de cómo debe funcionar una sociedad ".

 

Chomsky también da su valoración del presidente Obama, con quien. dice, se han atacado las libertades civiles de una manera que ha "ido más allá de [George W.] Bush."

 

Noam Chomsky es escritor y profesor emérito de lingüística y filosofía en el MIT, donde enseñó durante más de medio siglo. Es autor de decenas de libros, el último, "Occupy"."

OWS celebrates six months by reliving the fall

OWS celebrates six months by reliving the fall | #OccupyWallstreet | Scoop.it

Occupy Wall Street celebrated its six-month anniversary yesterday in Zuccotti Park with a fast-forward replay of last fall: re-occupation, carnival, violent eviction, defiance. A morning chalk-in for families and an early afternoon march around the Financial District (actually, two: one silent and one rowdy) began a day of reunion at the movement’s New York home. As re-renamed Liberty Plaza (or Square or Park) became full once again with hundreds of people, the hardy organizers who’ve spent the winter in meetings and arguments were drowned out by joiners, curious visitors, drummers and reporters. A 24-hour re-occupation was called, and new nonviolent defensive formations were rehearsed en masse. They danced, chanted and held a General Assembly. Numbers swelled to close to a thousand when marches from the nearby Left Forum conference joined later in the evening. The whole day was a welcome reminder that in occupation a magic dwells.
