Kalle Lasn and Micah White, the Creators of Occupy Wall Street

Kalle Lasn and Micah White, the Creators of Occupy Wall Street | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it

"Kalle Lasn spends most nights shuffling clippings into a binder of plastic sleeves, each of which represents one page of an issue of Adbusters, a bimonthly magazine that he founded and edits.

Occupy Oakland is Dead. Long Live the Oakland Commune. : BayofRage

Occupy Oakland is Dead. Long Live the Oakland Commune. : BayofRage | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it

"The Oakland Commune; that dense network of new found affinity and rebelliousness that sliced through seemingly impenetrable social barriers like never before. Our “war machine and our care machine” as one comrade put it. No cops, no politicians, plenty of “autonomous actions”; the Commune materialized for one month in liberated Oscar Grant Plaza at the corner of 14th & Broadway....

 

For a whole generation of young people in this country, these past six months have been the first taste of what it means to struggle as part of a multiplying and complex social movement that continually expands the realm of possibilities and pushes participants through radicalization processes that normally take years"

Occupy is not a Frickin’ Maybelline Ad — BagNews

Occupy is not a Frickin’ Maybelline Ad — BagNews | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it
