Book from Noam Chomsky on Occupy now available.

From Occupy's onset, Noam Chomsky has supported its critique of corporate corruption and encouraged its efforts to increase civic participation, economic equality, democracy, and freedom for the 99%.

Through talks and conversations with movement supporters, Occupy presents a crystallization of Chomsky's latest thinking on the cornerstone issues, questions, and demands that are driving ordinary Americans to protest.

David Graeber on Occupy/Social Movements and Police Repression

David Graeber interviewed in Berlin on 30 May 2012, on the Occupy movement and social movements, with a focus on state and police repression measures and the use of undercover officers. He mentions the scandalous case of Mark Kennedy, as well as how big a threat social movements are to neoliberalism at this current historical moment. These are short random clips from the interview, which was conducted for an upcoming film about people spied upon by undercover police.

Call for Solidarity: Please Support Occupy Media and Direct Action! | OccupyWallSt.org | Occupy Media | Scoop.it
This campaign is for expanding crucial Occupy media efforts (we represent OccupyWallSt.org, Occupied Wall Street Journal, Occupy Together, @OccupyWallSt, OccupyWallSt Facebook page, etc.) as well as supporting direct action organizing. The people behind these crucial projects have been working on daily basis for nearly a year for little or no pay. Our goal is to help support them with living stipends so they can continue working without having to choose between going hungry or promoting social justice. We also believe that with modest compensation, these people will be able to focus and expand their efforts and help bring Occupy back into the public eye.

Professor Kliman’s “Radical” Critique of David Graeber and the Occupy Movement

Professor Kliman’s “Radical” Critique of David Graeber and the Occupy Movement | Occupy Media | Scoop.it
Between Kliman’s critique of the Occupy movement, Ollman’s critique of Marx on working class consciousness and Zizek’s critique of Negri, I notice something of a pattern. Ollman in his piece, which I examined in my last blog, argues “between determining conditions and determined response is the class consciousness of the actors”. Action without this class consciousness is insufficient to accomplish the revolutionary project.

Towards a post-Occupy world - Philosophers for Change

Towards a post-Occupy world - Philosophers for Change | Occupy Media | Scoop.it

Seen in the context of the discussion of community self-help it is significant that the Occupy Movement has sought to embrace new, alternative, forms of future ways of organising that bypass the need for reliance on the Market and the State, and seek out coping strategies that make more sense, that are more empowering, are more democratic and inclusive -- particularly at the local and community level. As Chomsky (2012) observed:

What was born in a tent, died in a tent. Worn like the skin of one of Buffalo Bill’s victims in exactly the kind of enclosed corporate space it was built to dismantle, Occupy London’s Tent City University (TCU) was recently taken to a branded woodland glade in Suffolk where it was stripped of political meaning.

Occupied Media: Foreclose on the Corporate Fourth Estate

Occupied Media: Foreclose on the Corporate Fourth Estate | Occupy Media | Scoop.it

During many of the recent Occupy marches, the 24/7 media colossus has been outmaneuvered by this amorphous trend; Unpaid people reporting, co-producers, becoming credible sources of information. Often armed with whatever recording device available, consumers are becoming the courageous ones, the ones who are putting the public's interest first and constructing information ecosystems throughout social media portals.
