Fundraiser special 2/6!
February 6, 2012
Monday, February 6, 2012
Please join us on Monday night for a special two-hour show featuring the editors and contributors to Occupy! Scenes from Occupied America (Verso Press, 2011). Timely and engaging, Occupy! offers firsthand accounts of the early days of Occupy Wall Street in New York and sites around the country. As the movement took shape, participants debated goals, structure, and tactics and planned actions that would change the national conversation about injustice and inequality. We'll speak with a cross-section of contributors to Occupy, whose essays analyze the role of organized labor in the movement, describe what it's like to attend a General Assembly, and argue for the necessity of a racial analysis within OWS.
Guests will include:
Sarah Leonard, editor at Dissent and The New Inquiry
Kung Li, former executive director of the Southern Center for Human Rights in Atlanta
Manissa Maharawal, writer, activist, and graduate student at the CUNY Graduate Center
Sarah Resnick, senior editor at Triple Canopy
Nikil Saval, associate editor of n+1
Astra Taylor, director of the documentary films Zizek! and Examined Life
