This week: Occupy Wall Street
Is this form of protest one that is effective? Can we even judge the ‘effectiveness’ of a protest that doesn’t have clear demands? Do you think this protest will spark other activism or will it just fizzle out? Will the inclusion of more traditional groups, like the unions that are set to join in on Wednesday, help to organize the movement into something more accessible or threaten the character of the original activism(or do something else entirely)?
Please come and discuss with the Roosevelt Institute! All are welcome!
